We had a lovely evening at “The Wedding Gallery”
Brides, couples and Moms stated arriving at 6:15 pm last night at the Gallery. It was great having them look through Kelly’s pictures and listen to their stories. Every Bride received a “Wedding Workbook” full of just worksheets on how to plan your wedding. I personally hate those planning books that girls buy. They are huge and they inundate you with unnecessary stuff. I think it makes girls crazier thinking they have to fill out and read all that stuff! The workbooks were straight and to the point. They were just simple worksheets to help the Brides find vendors, checklists, and volunteer helper sheets. All the girls took home a great list of vendors they can call. Every girl left with a goody bag chocked full of savings from many of the local vendors. If they use them it will save them hundreds.
We started with our PowerPoint presentation on “How to have a Dream Wedding instead of a Nightmare!” Stephanie from the Doubletree and Kim from Eastland Suites were so helpful helping the Brides understand what they need to do when booking a reception venue. They handed out samples of information that the venue needs to pull off a great reception. The brides were full of questions and it was nice to have Stephanie and Kim there to help the girls understand the details for a reception.
Everyone got a chance to meet Rev. David Brown a local Wedding Officiant. Kelly Lyle was there answering questions the girls had about Photography. He then had to hustle next door to Starbucks to meet with a new couple to talk about their wedding…I think they even booked him!
I know I had fun presenting some simple advice on how to make your day easier. The evening ended with a questions and answer session.
All in all I think everyone enjoyed themselves. I just wish everyone would have eaten more brownies! I ended taking too many home.
