Oh what a night! I was a vendor at the Divine Details Bridal Show and the special guest of the evening was the much beloved Randy Fenoli from TLC's Say Yes To The Dress. Have you heard of that little show ?!
The ladies were lined up to get in the doors about 45 minutes before the doors were scheduled to open. And let me tell you, the ladies are crazy about this man! Seriously, they LOVE him! I'm somewhat embarrassed to say that I have never seen the show, so I didn't quite get the hysteria but I'm really glad he draws such an amazing crowd of women. And in case you are like me, and haven't watched the show before, here is what TLC says about the show
"Say Yes to the Dress reveals the inner workings of the world's premier bridal salon, Kleinfeld Bridal. Part fashion show, part bridal story, part family therapy, the series uncovers the hurdles the staff faces to make each bride completely satisfied."
Last I heard there was 600 tickets sold to the event and over 70 tickets sold at the door. I've done a lot of trade shows in my life, and this one tops them all. There were so many people who stopped by my booth, I ran out of info sheets and almost ran out of business cards. In fact there were so many people lined up at every booth it was almost impossible to get through the aisles.
Here are some pictures of my booth, I have a very small marketing budget so I was very lucky that I was able to partner with local business Dynamic Fitness. I make youlook pretty and they make you look and feel good. What a good partnership don't you think?
And here is a picture of the crowd, this was once the crowd had thinned a bit and I was able to grab my camera for a split second to snap this picture.
And to top off the night, when I got home and checked my emails I already had 2 wedding requests for this summer! Talk about immediate feedback :) I'm a happy vendor! And maybe I'll start watching the show...
