    They can be a little overwhelming - but I think that it's still a fun experience.

    Word of advice - don't give out your number.  Also, set up a separate email address for WR things only and give them that one, you will get spammed.

    I detest them, personally.    I'd say give one a try and see what you think, though.

    I agree w/ PP.  No joke, do NOT give your number out no matter what they promise you.  They seem nice up front, but they will stalk you even after you tell them no or not interested. 

    I didn't benefit from them, but it was a fun experience w/ my MOH.

    This.  I got some free magazines and a tote bag, got to see Donnie Brown, and ate alot of free cake.  Those were the highlights.

    AMEN Brianna. I gave that advice on a thread earlier this week I think...  It is really overwhelming too. The only vendor I ended up meeting and using was Black Eyed Pea, but I think it was worth it. And the free magazines were nice too :)

    I went and one the door prize which was 50% off all entertainment- DJ, Photographer and Videographer. I only used the DJ but it saved me a ton of money. I just didn't have a good vibe with the photographer.

    I got absolutely nothing out of it when I went, except leaving feeling very overwhelmed. But, some people find them helpful. Most of the vendors there were way out of my price range. 

    It was also VERY crowded, and I hate crowds. So I was really ready to get out of there asap.

    I enjoy them. I LOVE the free mags! I won a free e-session from one too!


    avoid royal prestiage, celebrity china and any chain type of vendor.

    You can also get coupons from vendors. I saved 25% off when I purchased my bridal belt from them.

    really? Which DJ/Videographer did you win?

    I won a similiar package-half off DJ service-major whoo hoo and I am so excited for them, their personalities seem to be great with lots of high energy!! and I also got a discount through videography-another big yay! :)
