This weekend I exhibited at my very first bridal show and we rocked it! The Portland Bridal Show was put on by the Maine Wedding Association and was held at the Holiday Inn By the Bay. It was a great time! I got to spend the entire weekend talking about invitations which is one of my favorite things to do! I had a huge support system to help me prepare for the event. My father-in-law built my tables and along with my sister-in-law helped deliver them to the event. My mom helped make the buttons that we handed out which were a huge hit. My husband, Donald earned HUGE brownie points by attending the event with me even though it was going on at the EXACT SAME TIME as the Patriots game. We were able to catch the last 4 seconds of the game in the hotel bar immediately after the Saturday event ended. All of my friends and family have been great by putting up with my endless rambling about the event... I was just so excited!
The event was jam-packed with newly engaged couples and their friends and families. Donald and I were lucky to meet so many wonderful brides and grooms to be. There were times that Donald and I couldn't even fit in our booth because of so many people checking out the goods. The best part was all of the amazing people we met, both attendees and other vendors. I'm a little bummed its already over but I'm excited to be able to help a lot of newlyweds design amazing invitations!
