The Wedding Show Season


by Tami Zachman

The Wedding Show season is upon us with full force as of the beginning of the New Year 2013 rolls in. Over the next few months there will be Wedding Expos galore! Many here in the Central Illinois area, starting with:

Holiday Open House with Designer Kelly Faetanini at Cloud Nine on Friday January 4th and Saturday, January 5th for a Trunk Show, featuring her new collection! Open House will take place from 5 - 7 pm! Every bride that attends our Open House will receive a 'swag bag' full of goodies!! With this one you might want to make an appointment.

Weddings of a Lifetime on January 6th, at the Peoria Civic Center at 10:00 an

The Wedding  Show at Bloomington Marriott at 11:00 am

Hanely Interstate Center Fashion Show in Bloomington on Thursday, January 15th from 5:00pm

Bridal Bash January 25 at the Embassey Suites at 5:00 and on Sunday at 10:00 am

Vendors from all over Central Illinois will be in attendance to display or demonstrate their services. I suggest that you visit many different vendors in each category before making a decision. Just because your sister’s best friend had a beautiful wedding with her vendors, does not mean that you will “click” with the same vendors. Find the vendors that “YOU” feel a connection with! I cannot stress this enough. You will be working with these specialists on a very important and intimate event in your life and you want to feel comfortable with them, especially since they are a very important part of making your day truly beautiful and run so very smoothly. So that you may truly enjoy yourself on your big day and not have to worry about any details, or issues!

One thing I do want to remind all the new brides out there are the shows in Chicago, one in particular that may peek the interest of some of the non conventional brides. If you have time and can attend:
