The Wedding Party Bridal Show

Well, after many hours of planning for this bridal show the day arrived. This past Sunday was The Wedding Party Bridal Show at the Hyatt Regency in La Jolla. It was unlike any bridal show I had been to. It was organized beautifully and felt very boutiquish (if that's even a word).
My best friend Stacy and her mom Kathy helped me "man" the booth. I could not have done this without Stacy. She has been such a support and help through this entire process. She is a genius with creative design and floral arrangements. I am going to post on her floral arrangements for the show soon. I have to premise by saying that I had no choice in the table cloths. The theme of the show was "That's Amore" so they had specific colors. Just in case you were wondering why the orange was so bright :)


Stacy had the brilliant idea of setting up some of my cards in coffee beans. I loved it. Didn't it look great?


-Here are Kathy, me and Stacy in front of the booth. We all had matching outfits on. We thought it would look better. It did attract more attention that way :)


-One of the belly bar tables with one of my albums, business cards (in coffee beans) and a floral arrangement



-A pic of my promo cards on the back table (also in coffee beans)



-The final product. You can see the flowers on the sides. I can't tell you how many brides wanted Stacy to do their flowers.


We had a great time! We met so many wonderful people. I am looking forward to see what 2008 has in store :)
Hugs to you all

This is sooo lovely. I would hire you just by seeing this booth. It is amazing. I love the flowers, the matching outfits and I bet they took all the senses home with them with those great coffee beans. I looove this idea. How creative. When I do a bridal show I must call you all and you can help me. I love your colors. Are those brochures in the beans on the first one, or CD's?? They are lovely. Congratulations! I hope you book tons of weddings from this.
