I am! I still need to hire a photobooth company and hair and makeup.

Yeah, but I’ve only got 70ish days left, so I better get my butt in gear. I met my DJ, wedding coordinator, and baker at last year’s Bridal Extravaganza, so it really is worth going. I’ll be there Saturday. What about you?

Whew, that was exhausting! Hopefully it’s a little less busy for you on Sunday. Saturday was pretty crowded. 

I found that almost all vendors offer their special Bridal Extravaganza rates for a few days, a week, some even a month after the event, so you don’t have to book right then and there. There are so many vendors offering similar services that I’d think it would be way to hard to actually make a decision at the event. I was only looking for a phot booth and a hair and makeup person, and I was overwhelmed. My advice is to wear comfortable shoes and cool clothing (it got really hot with all those people walking around!), bring a big bag, and just collect information from any vendors for services you still need. Talk to as many vendors as you can so you can see how their style or personality meshes with yours. Put a little star on the fliers of vendors you really like, or take notes. You’ll get so many fliers that you won’t remember which people gave you what. Then go home and organize all of it. I did that last year and it helped me so much. 

Also, if you happen to pass by the booth for Ouisie’s Table, it really is worth waiting in line for a sample of their food. It was awesome! 

Have fun!!
