On January 26th, 2014 I attended my first bridal expo as a vendor! As some of you know, my husband and I plan on moving back to the Midwest this spring/summer. We couldn't be more excited! In preparation for our big move, I needed to introduce my business to the Indianapolis bridal market. I figured that the best way to meet local brides would be at a bridal expo.
This year's 2014 Indianapolis Bride Expo was held at the Crane Bay in downtown Indy. The showcase was bubbling with newly engaged brides to be and their entourages. Brides, moms, and maids-of-honor alike filled the space exploring some of the top local vendors in Indianapolis. It was such a blast meeting so many blushing brides!
Leading up to the big day I had butterflies like no other trying to prepare a booth that best represented the essence of my planning and coordinating abilities. I started by asking myself what three words most accurately describe my brand?
Fresh. Romantic. Sweet.
From there, things slowly came together with a fun ivory backdrop, blush table cloth, a few shots from a recent style shoot featured in Style Me Pretty, and a sprinkling of flowers. The folks at Alegra Print did an amazing job with all of my printing needs! Indianapolis brides, I highly recommend them for all of your DIY wedding stationery. J.P Parker provided the tall floral centerpiece for my booth and the blush tablecloth was rented from A Classic Party Rentals.
I cannot begin to tell you what a blessing it was to meet so many fantastic brides and see so many sparkly rings! I wanted to Instagram them all!
A HUGE shout out to my parents for driving down from chilly Wisconsin to help me set up and pull everything together! More big thanks go out to Kaylie, Jen, Ashley, and Lauren for all your help along the way!
