Wedding Events

Anyone attend any?  I've gone to three so far...they're all pretty much the same.  Free cake, cookies, mini cupcakes...the last one I went to had an open bar!  Some of them have runway shows and other just have models walking around in wedding dresses.  I've signed up for a bunch of things at these events for the chance to win trips, photography etc.  I go with my mom, sister and my brother came to the last one!  We have fun just hanging out AND it makes me feel like I'm getting the most out of being a bride lol!

  • Haha you're lucky! I live too far out in the middle of nowhere, nothing like that is remotely accessible to me. Sounds like you're having fun!

  • Fi and I went to one this year. It was alot of fun for us just to go and relax. :) If there's another one near-by, we may be going again.

  • Aww man!  If you have any department stores near you, maybe they will have registry events?  I went to one at Macys and it was great!  They had a nice spread of sandwiches, appetizers, mini desserts, a DJ and mocktails!

    That's great Hope!  My FI hasn't been able to attend with me since they occur during the weekday while he is in class.

  • We've been to three! The first was way too early to book but I was getting restless, we actually scored free epics! The second one wasn't great. The third was fun but we didn't actually end up booking anyone.
    Best of luck to you and yours!

  • If any of the ones around here had an open bar, I'd attend them all. 
  • My venue did a "vendor showcase" right before I booked them.  Didn't get to go, since it overlapped a work obligation.  There have been 1 or 2 in this area, but I wasn't really interested since my wedding isn't local.  Might try to find one after I move (this Saturday!  Woo!)

    Thank you!  I'm excited to be moving back "home", where all our friends and families aren't a 2+ hour drive away!

  • My mom and I went to the Tucson Bridal Fair. We signed up for a lot of free stuff too, but I didn't win anything. I got some annoying phone calls where I would get something for free if I went to another event in Phoenix, but it sounded like a scam to me. haha. 

    I did book my venue at the fair though. We already knew who we wanted and they told us they had already booked 6 events that day! So we booked before a weekend around the time we wanted was gone.
