The SOHO Bridal Show

Bridal shows are a great way to help you get started with planning your big day! It is so informative and fun to stop by the many inviting booths and meet with all the vendors. You get to  see samples of the vendors work and speak with the professionals in person to see if they are a perfect fit for you. The SOHO Bridal Show was held on Sunday, January 17th, in Homewood, Alabama. The Brides and Grooms were able to spend quality time with the vendors, taste the delicious food and cake, and the Brides were swept off their feet by the gorgeous fashion show! Take a moment to browse through the photos from the event!

Southern Bridal Show – January 10th, 2016 Highlights

Wow! The Southern Bridal Show took place at the BJCC this past weekend, and it was a show to remember! So many wonderful vendors participated, and the fashion show was spectacular.  Bridal shows are so helpful for the busy Bride and Groom, to help them get started on planning their wedding. These shows are fun and exciting and full of great ideas. It is a great way to talk directly with the professionals, see samples of their work and get an idea of what costs are involved. We wanted to show you some photo highlights from the January Show. If you are a bride to be, make sure you  mark your calendar, the next Southern Bridal Show will take place on August 21, 2016, at the BJCC. Don’t miss it!

New Beginnings!

Happy New Year!   Take a look at this great find from Pier 1 Imports! These chargers really dress up your place setting and they look wonderful with any table decor. I found the cloth napkins at World Market, for around $5.00 a piece! I am going to have the napkins monogrammed and voila, they will look like a million bucks!  I just know this will make the perfect addition to my table, and we hope this will give you some wonderful inspiration for 2016!
