Today was a long day at the bridal show in Raleigh! We got there at 8am to set up for makeup in the show. We were featured artists–doing all the makeup for the models on stage. Everything ran very smoothly and we had tons of fun with all the ladies. After almost 2.5 hours of makeup and nearly 20 models the doors opened and in swarmed all the brides. Today’s show was great with lots of eager MOBs and “Bride’s Little Helper’s” (as the cute sticker-tags said). We were able to talk to a lot of brides that had questions about our business and what we actually do when we come out. It was very interesting to see some peoples’ responses when we let them know that we provide this great service to pamper them. Needless to say, if they hadn’t thought about having someone come out before the show…they are definitely thinking about it now! What a treat! A lot of the bridesmaids were excited about it, as well.
The show had a wonderful assortment of vendors, too. We ran into Debbie from Magic Happens Travel who is wonderful! She’s actually coordinating my wedding in Jamaica right now and has been absolutely phenomenal in making this as stress free as possible. I met Debbie through my business partner, Jennifer House, who used Magic Happens for her honeymoon in the Dominican Republic last year. She’s great! If you haven’t booked your honeymoon yet, definitely check her out. She and Marcie and Michael are all great to work with and you’ll have a lot of fun.
There were a lot of photographers, as usual, but some of the ones that we really like to see at every show and work with hand-in-hand are Cara and Jonathan from F8 Photography. They are hilarious and get some of the most dynamic and out-of-the-box photos that I’ve seen. Too bad they’re unavailable for my wedding in Jamaica…that would be trouble waiting to happen! 🙂
We took tons of photos today (thanks to my soon-to-be-hubby) and will update the website soon. I’ll post some of the good ones in the next couple of days to this blog.
If you met us at the show and enjoyed chatting us up let us know and leave us a comment! We look forward to hearing all about your planning!
Have a great night everyone!
