Southern Wedding Expo in Ringgold, GA

Today I participated in my first Bridal Fair, The Southern Wedding Expo in Ringgold, Georgia. (Fun fact: Ringgold is where Dolly Parton got married!) Brides, mothers, girlfriends, and a handful of fiancés attended, eager to meet vendors for their big day. I met some great potential clients and enjoyed some yummy sample cupcakes. 

This event reminded how much I love doing wedding invitations and working with brides. If you know anyone getting married & needing invites, please send them my way. I am available for custom design & letterpress printing for all the elements of a wedding invitation suite: save the date cards, invitations, reply cards, menus, programs, thank you cards, return address envelope printing, and more!

I had a custom sign made from my favorite local printer, DPI Color Graphics.
I didn't quite realize how big it was until I picked it up! 

Going through my portfolio in the dining room at home. 

My table & sign, all set up. I used a white linen family heirloom tablecloth that came from
my maternal grandmother's estate, Two Magnolias, in Macon, Georgia. 

New haircut, new pants, new sign, and a dozen roses.. all ready to go! 

The stage was set up for a bridal fashion show to model dresses from a local bridal shop. 

I met lots of other great vendors: caterers, photographers, planners, and more.

My favorite couple! I loved their air-brushed, "Just Engaged" matching tee shirts :)

  1. These ideas are truly awesome. I am really happy that you shared it here with me. I am also going to celebrate my post wedding party at DC wedding venues. I really hope you get few more ideas for you since you know a lot about wedding planning.
