Bridal Show Madness: How to Tame the Beast and Bring Out the Beauty

Read more

This Sunday is the Largest show of the season! The PWG Wedding Show will take place on Sunday February 16, 2014 from 11-4pm at the Orlando World Center Marriott. The address for this stunning venue is 8701 World Center Drive, Orlando, Florida. The show producers and vendors of the show are expecting a turnout of over 1,000 Brides. In a crowd of so many people its easy to become overwhelmed with all of the choices. Here are 5 quick tips to help you bring out the beauty of  a Wedding show!

1. Make a Plan! Couples leave Wedding shows feeling empty handed because they fail to plan. Don’t let this happen to you! Familiarize your self with the vendors that will be present at the show. Are any of these vendors on your list of “Must have” vendors? Come prepared to look for them first and foremost. Be sure to arrive early on a full stomach and completely hydrated. Don’t rely on vendors to fill you. Many times only samples are available and the last thing you want to be is hungry and/or grumpy!

2. Make a list and Check it Twice! What’s left on your list? Do you have vendors that you have not solidified? Are you looking for design inspiration? Still not sure how to present your cake table? A Wedding show is the perfect time to plan your wedding and get design inspiration. Vendors are brimming with new ideas and love showcasing the latest trends! Make a list of things you would like to accomplish. This list will keep you on track and focused amid all the craziness and hustle and bustle of the show.

3. Bring a group that will be productive and allow you to still have fun! Bring your girls, wedding party or close family members. Wedding shows are a ton of fun. Be sure to bring people who are happy, supportive and will keep you on track…at least some of the time! Be sure to take a ton of pictures to capture all of the memories. Wedding Shows are also about bonding and interaction, plan to make tons of memories! Don’t forget to Hashtag us! #ORLPWGSHOW

4. Come Prepared! The best Wedding trend has been Labels. I love it when a bride comes into my booth with a pre-filled out label. Many vendors will require that you leave your information with them in order to enter for prizes and discounts! So, to avoid having to write out your email a million times, create mailing labels that are customized with all of your vital information. Information to include would be:

– Name

-Email address and phone number

-Wedding Date/Venue (If you have one)

-Wedding Colors

5. Target deals and specials! Most vendors will give away tons of FREE stuff in order to attract couples to their booth. If you see a vendor giving away a service be sure to enter into their raffle. You never know you may actually be the lucky winner! Be sure to enter into vendor services that you need. If you would not like a follow up then you may want to be picky about which vendors you enter with.

I hope that this helps you navigate this Sunday’s Bridal Show! Good luck and I hope to see you at the show!

Happy New Year from Pretty Peacock Paperie!

Happy New Year from Pretty Peacock Paperie ~ Orlando Wedding Invitations! I am so very excited to bring in the New Year. 2013 was a great year but I am so anxious for the New Year to start! Pretty Peacock Paperie had many great moments in 2013 and we grew beyond our wildest dreams! I can only hope for the best in 2014! Which brings me to my New Year’s Resolution for 2014.

For years, I have set resolutions and goals that I never really stuck to. 1. Because there were so many resolutions and 2. Because many were unrealistic! At the end of 2012 I decided to keep it simple. My goal for 2013 would be:

To Be the Best Version of Myself Possible!

This resolution has taken me to the moon and back. It has opened up so many doors that I never knew existed! At the close of 2013 I now feel like a better version of myself! I think that this will be my goal for a while. I think there is always room for improvement and I think that this goal is all encompassing! What do you guys think? What are your New Year’s Resolutions?
