Some observations from the Bridal Show.......

1. There were a lot of pink and sparkly things there.........dd is neither having pink or sparkly things.......

2. Dd got enough flyers to sink a ship for all sorts of products........most will be going in the garbage bin!!

3. There were cake samples...YEAH!!!  Made sure I sampled all the cake samples!!

4. You could spend a small bloody fortune on a wedding if you're not careful.

5. There were limo buses that were like disco's on wheels, very over the top.

6. The flower arrangements were stunning and way over the top....

7. Did I mention there were cake samples!!!

8. Dd set up her gift registry, she only picked out a couple of things, so she could take advantage of getting a $25 gift card for free.  She will complete the gift registry process with her fiance at a later date.

9. Dd found a couple of people she would like to use for the wedding all depending on the deals she can negotiate with them.

10. Saw a lot of gorgeous cakes, and managed to force myself to taste the samples!!!

11. Dd filled out all sorts of ballets, so will be inundated with emails and phone calls for the next few months now and will probably win squat!!!

All in all I thoroughly enjoyed my first ever Bridal Show.  We didn't stop for the fashion show, as my feet were killing me and dd knows what gown she wants.  There were a few dresses but knowing what dd wants we were not really interested in them.

All I can say, Gill, is I'm glad it's you and not me! Heehee Except for the cake sampling part, of course. L-u-c-k-y!

I love wedding cake too Gill. I presume you mean the proper dark fruit kind?
Music is very important at a wedding. Depending on what you go for, a decent live band that plays the sort of music to please everybody, will set you back about 2000 GBP. The whole wedding could be as much as 10,000 GBP or more. However, it doesn't have to cost that does it? You could do it for a fraction of that cost if you really want to.

Gill,
I remember my sister going to these and getting lots of free stuff.
I agree that nowadays you can spend a fortune on a wedding. I would rather have a good down payment on a house or condo then spend all this money on one day that will be over quickly and can be very stressful for everyone.
But the cake samples would have been great to try.

Never knew that there cake samples at a bridal show. It must be exhausting to have all those choices for the big day - I'm talking cake, of course!

I have no plans to ever get married, but do you think I could go to one of these shows for the cake only????
