Wow, what a busy weekend at the boutique! My feet are still a little sore from yesterday’s shift, I think…my biceps have probably toned up another bit…and brides seem to be happy! It’s hard work, but so rewarding and enjoyable to be helping our beautiful brides find their dream dresses. We did not stop from 10:00AM straight through until 6:00PM. Just another regular January Saturday! 🙂
We have received a few new dresses recently as well; a unique lace gown from Wtoo, and a couple from Mori Lee (I can’t remember which exact styles they are right now, but will post them once I find out again). All I remember is there is a touch of bling on one of them, which I always love.
The Ultimate Bridal Show is coming up soon, too! On February 17, we will be set up at the Sheraton Hotel. Make sure to check everything out, there will be such a wide array of wedding-related vendors to look into including favors, photographers, caterers, travel, and anything else that you can think of that is related to weddings! Also, Ever After will be hosting their second bridal fashion show where we showcase many of the amazing brides that have found their gowns at the boutique! Also, I am so excited to actually be taking part in the fashion show, too…I won’t be wearing my own wedding gown (since no one will be seeing that until August!) but I will be showcasing an amazing ball gown that will be one heck of a showstopper. I was initially supposed to be modelling this ball gown at the Heart and Stroke Foundation “The Heart Truth” event which I blogged about previously; however, due to unforeseen circumstances we are not able to attend now, much to our dismay. I am very glad that we will be presenting it at our own fashion show at the Ultimate Bridal Show, it is going to be just fantastic! Please come one, come all!
I have been in the process of designing (actually, the designing is complete) and creating our wedding invitations earlier this past week, and they’ve been turning out just like I had hoped – we are very happy with them! We looked at multiple online stores to check out customized invitations, and also stores around town, but we ended up decided to go with doing it ourselves, which is usually what I love doing anyway. We purchased our materials and I went straight to work once all was picked up. So glad we could find everything we needed. I was going to say that it’s time consuming, but it’s actually not as bad as what one would think. The only part that feels time consuming is the initial stages of assembling the invitations, because you just have to finalize the exact way that you want it with your materials. Once you have that down, it’s all downhill from there…and it’s awesome. 🙂 We hope our guests will love them, too!
Now, it’s time for bed…all of this wedding stuff, sheesh…! 🙂
