I have so much to blog about!  I need to talk about Sunday’s Weddings: The Bridal Show and how much fun that was and talk about my awesome photo shoot with Mandy Whitley Photography, but FIRST, I want to start the buzz on the upcoming Elegance Bridal Gala!


It’s sponsored by Ashley’s Bride Guide, and we all know how much I love Ashley.  I don’t know all the vendors, but I do know that my favorite pre-marital counselor and Unabridged Bride partner, Marie McKinney-Oates, will be there!

I’m so excited to be a part of this bridal show.  Austin, the woman who started it, has such a great vision.  She wants it to be classy and interactive.  It’s “little black dress” attire – how fun is that?  Plus, she’s encouraged all vendors to provide a way for the brides to get involved, not just walk up to the vendor table and have the vendor go on and on about how you should use him/her.  There’s one vendor that’s doing make-up application, one that’s having you make mini invitations at their booth and a videographer who will be filming live to show you what your journalistic wedding video could be like!  And me, I’m available to sit down with each bride for about 10 minutes and we can over this great pre-wedding checkist that I have (very unlike any pre-wedding checklist you’ve ever come across)!  So excited for the Elegance Bridal Gala!
