I’ll be back there again to check out what’s new for budget brides in this change of season :) As usual, there will be fashion shows scheduled throughout the day, door prizes to be had, as well as a Grand Wedding giveaway!

    So excited! Would love to go to this with my bridesmaids to get some ideas, as my fiance is currently serving in the military in Thailand – so sweet of him to let me plan majority of the wedding with the condition that everyone will have fun! Would love to check out Chic & Unique Event Design just to get a better idea of what would work best with me and fiance’s dream wedding!

    I can’t wait to go to this! I was going to fly solo but if the chance to take someone came up I would! ;)

    I’ve stood up in 8 weddings and am so happy it’s finally my turn. Can’t wait to see the new trends for Spring 2012 and to personalize my own wedding style with the help of this show.

    I’m definitely hitting up Bryan’s Bride and Sweet Beginning Wedding Consulting. YAY!
