Valentine’s has passed and I am still recovering from an overload of chocolate and those candy hearts with cute messages that we all know taste like a neon chalkboard. Austin illuminated this past weekend with new and fresh love. It filled the city from every romantic restaurant corner to every dreamy couple strolling along Lady Bird Lake. Questions were popped, rings were given and promises of a happily ever after were sealed with a kiss. Whether you just put a ring on it this weekend or have been a card carrying bride-to-be for some time, wedding planning is both exciting and can feel a bit overwhelming.
Fortunately with the internet invasion of Pinterest a few of us have had our wedding pinned since we were 17, maybe a little too elaborately planned. Let’s be honest, there is no way you can wear your hair in an up-do and princess curls at the same time at your wedding, but nonetheless you have 13 different styles pinned just in case. A girl needs options for her hair just like she needs a walk-in closet full options of her designer shoes. A girl can dream, can’t she?
So you have your Pinterest board with a three minute scroll full of the perfect dresses, flowers, centerpieces, lighting and design, and every photo booth prop your guests most definitely will love, but who are you going to call call? (For all of you who just shouted across the living room Ghostbusters, kudos to you, but I digress.) If you just knew who to call to get the ball rolling, you would be set.
Knowing you want pink tulips punctuated with yellow daisies in your bouquet and knowing who can deliver that dream design are two different hurdles to jump entirely. And when did planning a wedding’s budget get to be so hard with so many ways a wedding seems to add up? Regardless of your particular pain point in the planning process, there is a fabulous event coming up that will help you simplify the journey.
Grab your day planner, your favorite glass of red wine, and a pen. Flip to Monday, February 24th and write this down with me, The Simply Amazing Bridal Showcase. Okay, now that we are quite literally on the same page, let me tell you why you have just added this to your calendar. The Simply Amazing Bridal Showcase is your chance in one week to connect with some of the best wedding professionals and vendors in the Austin community. Need a florist? We have one. What about a disco ball and dance floor combo, yep we have one of those too. From cupcakes to bridal body trainers, we can hook you up at The Simply Amazing Bridal Showcase. Seriously, I am glad you penciled it in, you will not want to miss it!
