I wanted to take time to thank all of our attendees that came out and joined us for our second annual “A Bridal Shower” event yesterday at the Sleep Inn & Suites hotel in La Plata. For those that missed the event, we had three wonderful guests that I must thank for taking time out of their busy schedules to be with us: Katie Hayle (Bridal Secrets), Judi Fields (Dickson’s Fields of Flowers) and Tracey Alston (Cakes by Tracey) who provided us with some very helpful wedding planning tips.
We were also able to inspire brides with 7 different wedding theme tables to give them some ideas for their own weddings. Table themes included: Autumn Theme, Asian Theme, Winter Wonderland, Beach Theme, Garden Party, Pink & Expresso, and Vintage Blue & Chocolate. Judi provided us with gorgeous floral centerpiece ideas to go with each theme, while Tracey inspired us with different cake ideas to go with various themes. (We also got to sample her red velvet, buttercream and chocolate cakes – always a bonus!) Southern Maryland Weddings provided the decorations, while our sister site at www.BridalEverything.com and our new store (to be launched soon) www.BeachThemeWeddingShop.com provided our beach theme wedding decorations and favors.
Katie provided us with helpful information about shopping for wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses and mother of the bride & groom dresses. Thank you to the models who modeled a variety of gowns for all to see.
I would especially like to thank the Sleep Inn & Suites (Gail Perry & Jessica Perry) for co-sponsoring this event for the second year in a row. They have a beautiful facility perfect for intimate receptions, bridal showers & other events. Contact Jessica at 301-645-9111 to book your event and you can get your choice of a FREE non-alcoholic beverage bar or candy buffet!
For those of you who missed this event – the answer is yes! We do plan to hold this type of event every year! We hope you will have a chance to join us.
