Big Weekend!

This past weekend was a Big one! Perfect Wedding Guide hosted a Bridal show on Sunday, so there were several events leading up to that.

Saturday, I made the final preparations for the show, and launched a brand-new website (WWW.SWANKYSOCIALS.COM)! There were several reasons I decided to re-design a new site, but the main reason is to show a more professional side of my business. I am in it for the long haul and have learned a lot and grown a lot as a wedding professional, and I wanted my website to show that. Thanks so much to Lance Ingram, with Ingram Image, for my awesome full Flash site!! If anyone is in the need for a website for their business, please inquire with Lance. He is so great to work with and gets things done at lightning speeds.

Saturday night, Leighton, Sarah Neale, and I went to a cool event, The White Wedding-- Heidi Elnora's spring 2010 fashion show. It was at Old Car Heaven, a great venue, and we enjoyed fun music and visiting with fellow wedding vendors. Diane Olexa was the hit with her new "cupcake" t-shirts and AMAZING cake bites (I can't ever get enough!). Oh yeah, and Melissa Ryecroft was there....but we didn't see her! She apparently left early and was in VIP the whole time.

Sunday, we had to be up bright and early for the PWG Bridal Market! This was my first booth to do as a business owner so I had been preparing for a while. It turned out great. Here are a few pictures:
This was right after set-up so it wasn't complete, but you get the picture....

The beautiful arrangement is done by none other than HOTHOUSE!

Oh, and my beautiful friends, Margaret, Geri-Martha, and Elaine modeling for Bella Couture!

All in all, the weekend was a total success. I loved meeting all the future brides AND vendors at the show and look forward to working with some of them! Thanks to Brittany Allen and Leighton Harbuck for everything you did to help!!!!
