Off to the Show…The Wedding Show!!

Anticipation builds as I walk up the steps towards the event.

My first bridal show.

In one year I will walk these very steps to my wedding.


I soak in the venders, the free gifts, and the swirl of excitement radiating

off of the room full of women, all of us experiencing the same anxiety and exhilaration that comes with being a bride.

All of us overwhelmed; dizzy with the decisions of which flowers to choose,

what our girls should wear, and what colour overlays to use.

The overflow of advice given, endless ideas, few dollars, and not enough time.

But through the whirlwind of planning there is also good friends and great family.

And an exuberant bride who can’t wait to get married.

    Oh the swag that came with those events…we got sucked into a DJ after we won x amount of money off if we booked with them. I figured why not…they turned out to be terrrible. Terrible.
    Never hire Dogger’s DJ’s…

    • multitaskingmumma
      September 23, 2011 | 7:37 pm

      They had a dj at this one.
      He wasn’t offering deals. I kinda wish he was.
      His name was Bob.

    I’m so excited for you! I remember all of the fun stuff — picking out the flowers, the dress, the decorations, the hair….there’s something magical about it.

    PS Calla lilies (the flowers pictured in the bouquet above) were our wedding flower. Sister wife!
