Well, we did it.
And we lived to tell the tale.
We say that like tired pilgrims, home from the promised land, but the truth is that The Wilkes Wedding Expo on March 10th was a hit and we couldn't be more proud, more gratified and more excited to have people turn out year after year. And yes, we're glad to have the rest of the year to recover and plan. This sucker doesn't happen by itself, but it does happen and between the curious brides and wedding vendors, we all get that little buzz that comes from being in the wedding industry. It's pretty hard to beat.
The Expo Vendors
Our vendors for 2019 included Roush Video Production, Bliss Vacations, The Emerald Hill, A&J Rental, Wisteria Vine Bakery, Winding Creek Wedding Barn, Waterhouse Studios, Rustic Rentals, Carolina Weight & Wellness, Pixels on Paper Photography, Cooks, Inc., DJ Grooves, Mary Kay and more. Check out the complete list.
This year we hosted 118 guests at the Expo. We had 42 brides and their supportive companions, 38 vendors and lots of fun. We're happy to share that through admission fees, BT raised over $650 for a local charity. And congratulations to Sanders Ridge for winning the $50 cash prize for best booth!
The greatest compliment we received this year came from a mother of a bride to be who said, "I thought we already had everything figured out, but this has given us a lot more to think about." If you came to the event and have questions for us at BT, we would be happy to answer them and assist you in any way possible. Here's to another big wedding season.
