Bridal Show Fun!

This weekend was extremely busy for the First Coast Weddings team!

Not only did Danielle and Donna have a wedding at beautiful Deerwood Country Club, I co-produced one of the largest bridal shows in town, the Jacksonville Bridal Connection.

Melanie and I spend several hours Saturday night preparing goody bags for the brides, and then my co-producer Sharon (also publisher of North Florida’s Premier Bride) were at the University Center until 3:30 am supervising the setup.  This is the “glamorous” stuff they don’t show on TV!

I was back at the University Center at 8:30 am Sunday to greet vendors, put out last-minute fires, and get ready for the 375 brides to arrive.  Thank goodness Danielle and Melanie were on hand to handle the First Coast Weddings booth!  Here’s a snapshot of them setting up, taken from my Blackberry (so it’s not great):

We were part of The Wedding Party’s booth, which as our matching t-shirts claimed, “ROCKED!”  What a great atmosphere full of fun and professionalism.  From what I heard, everyone that stopped by loved it!

Our friend Wes Taff of Scenecrafters stopped by to shoot some video of the show, which I can’t wait to see!

And now I’m taking a well-deserved day off to recuperate.  🙂
