Bridal Shows

Chris and I went to a Bridal Show in Lexington on Sunday afternoon. He sampled 3-4 cakes, a pasta dish from a caterer in downtown, and we both tried a few hor d'ouerves items from several caterers, especially the chocolate fountain.

We also picked up a ton of stuff: catalogs, business cards, forms, advertisements, etc. We went through them all last night and eliminated things we weren't interested in, made some decisions, and filed away the things we want to look at again.

We did make an appointment to meet with someone about invitations (and other stationary needs) and we scheduled a free dance lesson!

On Friday we met with a photographer that we really liked. He had a great price, a package that had everything in it we wanted, and we had a good time talking to them. After talking with and reading through the information from the various photographers at the Bridal Show we decided that the person we met on Friday would be our best deal and would be fun to work with. So we are signing a contract with him tomorrow. Another thing off the list!!

The two other big things I want to look at now are cakes and flowers. Those are the things that we need to have vendors lined up for on the actual day, so we need to book them soon. So much to think about!!

Hope everyone had great weekends!!

  1. I should also add that I felt old at the Bridal Show. There were probably plenty of brides there that were my age or older, but they are predominantly in their 20s. And everyone is so bubbly, which I am not. I'm excited to be getting married, but the whole bubbly, sorority thing is not me. Was definitely an interesting day.
