Bridal Fair Bonanza (that was Brandon's title)

So before I post the pics from the big event, I have to give credit to my amazing husband for pushing me to do this Bridal Show. I was hesitant to do it because of the money and time commitment it would take, but Brandon was insistent that I do it to see where my business can go. In fact, I think sometimes he is more excited about the business I have started than I am. He is constantly thinking of new improvements and gets so excited to see success. Its such a blessing to have someone who cares about my interests and supports me 100% of the way. Especially since we were moving at the same time as getting things ready, that meant that he didn't get home cooked meals and a clean house for almost 2 weeks. I am lucky.

Ok, so here are the pics you have wanted to see...

This was my side of the booth. We shared it with www.budgetforcake.com.
It's kind of sad that once its all set up, it doesn't look like that much work went into it, but let me tell you. It was a TON of work, but the fun kind of work that gives you excuses to go to thrift stores and craft stores to put the perfect display together.

Actually, most of my stuff came from thrift stores and with a little spray paint or fix up, they added just the right touch. Some pictures of the details...


And a cheesy me picture right before the show started.

Brandon actually enjoyed himself (don't tell him I said that). He almost gave up going to the BYU vs UofU game because he was liking it so much. He was so great talking to people and helping me to be confident and assertive.

I am so happy we did it and overall, I think it will be very successful. Thanks Stan, Lynette, Jessica and Halle for coming! But wow! I am glad it is over and we will be able to finally settle into our new place this week. Stay tuned for pics of our new abode...
