Welcome to the BT Blog
Where we Hope to Inform and Inspire
It would be more accurate for us to say: "Dreamers Encouraged" at our Expo on March 10.
There's this beautiful scene in "Pride and Prejudice" (2005, with Keira Knightley) where the key character - Miss Elizabeth Bennett - is stuck between any number of unappealing options with regard to society and marriage. She sits on a rope swing and spins around and then let's herself be swung back in the opposite direction. Maybe you remember doing that from childhood. As she does, what she sees changes slightly and the seasons do too, but not the scenery. It's a reminder that she's caught in that place we all have been: where you do the same activities day after day, season after season and the world goes on spinning with very little recognizable difference to your life. So you day dream..
Sure enough, this little blue marble we live on has continued to spin since the Wedding Expo of 2018 and we are, once again, preparing for vendors and brides-to-be to gather at Wilkes Community College for a day of meeting, celebrating, researching, viewing and excitement. We hope that the brides-to-be coming to the Expo this year will still have some of that "dreaming" and imagination in them as they take in all of vendors and ideas.
Don't worry, though - those of you who are more organized than dreaming at this point. You too can gather information like a boss and check off boxes on your list of to-dos. We'll have vendors ready to answer questions, offer suggestions and learn about your Big Day Plans. This expo attracts some of the most experienced, fun and inventive, local pros in the business - be it food, photography, music or decorations. If you haven't registered yet, click below and consider attending.
Are you in the professional wedding game? We would love to have you join us and meet prospective brides and their entourage of family and best friends. You also can network and do a little bit of exploring, idea generation and dreaming of your own!
