I have not-so-patiently been waiting for my mom to return home from her vacation so we can start attending bridal shows for my upcoming wedding. So when I won tickets to Something White’s Boutique Bridal Bazaar, I knew it would be the perfect mother-daughter outing, since crafty is my mom’s middle name. I was hoping to get out-of-the box ideas and inspiration. And business cards. Lots of them, since I’m a little behind in wedding planning.
I wasn’t disappointed! An entire row devoted to Etsy boutiques?? It was like meeting the magical elves behind all of my favorite crafts. Every booth was decked out with beautiful displays of their work, samples from cake shops and caterers and all the business cards and brochures my purse could hold.
Bridal shows can be overwhelming, but this was just the right amount of vendors, and there was no pressure or sales pitches from anyone. We left feeling inspired with a million ideas, a handful of brochures and list of things to check out later.
