ellyB and Unveiled Wedding Show

Earlier this month we participated in the Unveiled Wedding Show sponsored by The Wedding Guys. Along with the Bridal Bar family, we created an environment for attendees to poke around and get a feel for our different expertise.

First up I would love to show you my table.  Instead of doing the traditional tablescape or consultation table that are seen at most bridal shows, I wanted to make my presentation a bit more interactive.  We did a popcorn bar that had a variety of flavors such as green apple, cherry, blueberry and of course traditional flavors such as cheese and caramel. Everyone in attendance was wow’ed to see the traditional candy jars filled with something unique and eye catching. I have heard of flavored popcorn but I would have never thought it tastes just like the name of the popcorn.  All brides in attendance took some home for their groom and will now consider this a favor option for the guests. We are also now adding this service to our a la carte menu.

Our table from the Atlantan Brides Evening of Luxury Event

A few weeks ago, we participated in the Atlantan Brides Evening of Luxury event. The brides were treated to various tablescape designs, a slew of delicacies and a runway fashion show. Unfortunately I was unable to attend since we were at the wedding of Whitney and Tony. Here are a few images of my group’s tablescape.
