    o-kay we all really need to get together. I can't keep up with all this action!
    Especially with the influx of new bride-to-bes. Welcome all!

          Hey Jen, I went last year and found it kinda brutal. But thats just me..its all local vendors so its not really much help. Its fun to eat the cupcake samples and to see some of the fashion shows but thats about it.

            I agree. I went to the one last September and it was great for planning my AHR but other than that, not much help for a DW unless you're looking for a travel agent. If you do go, make sure you go in the afternoon and avoid some of the bridal madness!

            I have my first dress fitting today! So excited!

              I can't remember last years show being all that great for those of us planning a DW, as the girls mentioned above. I went to help a girlfriend so I wasn't looking for myself at all but I remember the focus seemed to be INVITES galore! It did seem to be good for some of those small bits and pieces you might need to fill still - discounted veils, hair pins, head bands etc... but yah otherwise I don't know that you'd miss out on much by not going if you were at another one recently.

              On a funny note, I went to the show in September that was here and you wouldn't believe me when I tell you that I was getting dirty glares and shocked reactions from a few of the vendors along the way. I try and be polite because I know part of their job is to harass people (ha!) but when I say "thank you but I'm not having a registry", I don't think they need to scoff and ask me "why not, don't you want any gifts?".... yep, that happened a few times over!!

                  I also agree to drinks and NOT going to the bridal shows. They are a huge waste of time,I went to them last year and took nothing from them with me haha

                    Wearing the "I'm a bride" sticker is (I can't believe I'm admitting this) kind of fun. Anyways, I went last year before we decided on a DW and have been every other year forever for bridemaid duty. There are mean bitches everywhere!
                    Will be there again this year, but at least my TA will be there so I can say hello to her and hopefully escape the madness!
