Well yesterday was my first Bridal Show of the 2013. Out of the blue I got a call from the owner of http://planitexpo.com/ last Thursday evening offering me a great spot to exhibit at the Saturday, April 13th show. Never had done a show in a Mall, let alone 45 exhibitors.
After some thought, decided to go ahead. So, Lance and I packed up the dress forms, gowns, fascinators, bags and sashes and headed off to the show on Saturday morning. Had a great spot right on the corner of a very open area. You could see the gowns from several directions.
Ended up next to a DJ…Honestly, I wasn’t sure we were going to be able to hear with the speakers right next to our booth. But it turned out great. DJ “Howard Goldstein of http://professionaldiscjockeyservice.com/ was great, nice guy and very professional.
I had to decide on a door prize. I decided on a beautiful sash I had made.
The apricot and white flowers are made of double faced satin and silk ribbon. Hand appliqued onto a beige double faced satin ribbon. To show off the sash, I put it on the gown I made from a Vera Wang pattern. It gave it a really new and updated look.
The lucky bride was Rebecca. She didn’t have a dress yet. She was so surprised. I hope she gets inspiration from the sash.
Had some bag lovers stop by also.
Enjoyed talking to all of brides. I hope that they got a lot out of the show and would love to hear from them when they are ready.
Look forward to some new opportunities and creative designs.
This is going to be a great year for C’est Lea.
