Wedding Shows – Go!

7 Feb

A typical Minnesota Saturday in January or February may not host as many weddings as a Saturday in July or August, but you can sure find your share of wedding shows! The beginning of a new year marks to many brides the beginning of a plan. Planning how to burn off all those holiday treats to make sure your dress fits How to BEGIN planning that wedding!

I highly recommend attending a wedding show or two to help jumpstart that plan. Not only does a wedding show have plenty of vendors in one area, but it is also an all around fun day with your mom, future mother in law, sister, bridesmaids or whoever comes with you! From photographers, florists, dj’s, decorators and everything in between it is a great way to cross things off your list or at least get some ideas.

A few weekends ago one of the biggest wedding shows in my area (southern MN) took place on a gorgeous Saturday. I was not a vendor at this show (honestly just didn’t have time as the holidays got the best of me this year, but maybe next year) BUT I did have an awesome opportunity to help out Denise from Imagination at Work Design Studio with her booth display!! Denise and her daughter Jes who is soon to graduate from college and become a partner(!) are a design company that does amazing work with decorating for your big day, they  have great taste and I love working with them since I feel that our styles and products really compliment each other.

For the show, Denise and Jes set up 3 tables to highlight the different styles they can design to achieve your perfect look. So where do I come into all of this? I created some  paper and stationery items such as table numbers, wine labels, menu cards and a matching invite for each setting to tie in the look. (so fun!)

ps- don’t mind the green, purple and pink lighting that was reflecting off from the crazy light display from the DJ in the next booth over 🙂

Look # 1 – Eggplant, Silver and Charcoal metallic.  A classic look for the platinum bride, but a mix.. Eggplant and silver is so elegant for a wedding and the platinum candle holders make the whole look pop!

Look # 2 – Pink and Ivory Vintage Romantic  This one is my favorite- I can picture this setting being outdoors with the hanging lanterns, burlap flowers and gorgeous color combo to create that light and airy feel!

Look # 3 – Everything Purple in Modern Elegance From Dark to light, purple is so popular and when you pair it with crystals and bling it is even better! If you are a modern bride wanting some sparkle I think this is for you.

The purple poster script wedding invitation and pocket was a perfect fit

So now you know what I mean when you see all the goodness you are missing out on when it comes to wedding shows! Denise and Jes do such a fabulous job and I was so honored to help them polish off their looks.

To end with good news- if you missed this wedding show or you want to go to another one to compare notes and vendors then you are in luck! Don’t miss it Sunday February 26th at the Verizon Wireless Civic Center in Mankato, MN there is the Southern MN Wedding Expo coming up from 10 am- 3pm complete with a style show AND I WILL BE THERE AS A VENDOR with awesome giveaways that you won’t want to miss!

cheers, Gina

    Jenny and I just went to a wedding show 2 weeks ago; you are right—got lots of ideas and was fun to spend some fun time with Jenny.
    Thanks, see you soon
