Northwest Georgia Bridal Expo

As the newest blog writer for The Season Events, I’m new to the wedding industry. To get my career started off right, I took a trip to the Northwest Georgia Bridal Expo with Holly and the crew and spent a few hours immersed in a wedding wonderland.

The Expo, held at the Clarence Brown Conference Center in Cartersville on Saturday, Jan. 24, hosted more than 60 vendors and hundreds of brides-to-be and their entourages. Vendors providing everything from makeup and hair styling to venues gave brides plenty of options to plan their entire wedding or work out just the finishing touches for the big day. Brides, mothers, sisters and best friends wandered through the booths, sampling cakes and toting bags of freebies, brochures, and business cards.

With no shortage of gourmet bakeries in attendance, there were plenty of wedding cake and cupcake samples to go around. Caterers—including us, The Season Events—offered scrumptious bite-sized snacks and sips, proudly showcasing some favorites.

Our booth featured samples of tomato basil bruschetta, cranberry and brie tartlets, and a display of mouth-wateringly fresh blackberries, raspberries, strawberries and cheeses. A dispenser of refreshing pink lemonade complemented the overall theme of the booth – blush and gold – two popular colors for weddings this year. The centerpiece of the booth featured a surprisingly demure sequined tablecloth under a table setting of fine china, complete with gold mercury glass votives and a glittery charger.

Gold votive candles and blush and ivory accents set the stage for a classically beautiful yet stylish wedding. Photo books from past brides and grooms flanked the other side of the booth, offering brides a chance to see our work.

Although undeniably magical, so many options made me wonder how I’ll ever be able to plan my own wedding! Thank goodness I work for The Season Events, and I know that the team there will guide me every step of the way!

I’d say my first foray into the wonderful world of weddings was a success! With so many weddings already on the calendar this spring, I know I’m going to have plenty of opportunities to see and learn all about making each day beautiful and unique. Here’s to a season of growing, discovering and marrying!
