Yesterday was the big debut! This was the first show as Ashley & Co. and I would call it a success! This was my eigth year to participate in the Spring Show and my how it has changed since those first days. Each year I love getting to talk to brides about their plans and vision and pointing them in the right direction to make it happen. This year was no different, and Caitlin has made such a great addition to the team. In a few short weeks we will be opening our showroom and allowing clients to come in and “play” with their tables, colors and settings. I can’t wait until that point!
The Spring Show was the perfect opportunity to get that informaiton out, all while doing it for a good cause. The Bridal Association of the Brazos Valley hosts two bridal shows each year. One in the fall at the College Station Hilton and one in the spring at the Brazos County Expo. The Association is a non-profit organization that donates the proceeds to a charity for each show. The Spring Show is proud to benefit the Red Cross and SEPA (student event planner’s association). These volunteers that help behind the scenes are wonderful and deserve a huge thank you! I’m excited to see what we are able to donate this year.
The Spring Show always sets the beginning of the wedding season of that year. It seems that January kicks off pretty strong each year, February is a little more calm coming through Valentine’s Day, and then after the show begins the whirlwind! We were excited this year to get to share some design secrets with future and current brides, and some that were just interested in some ideas.
Of course I left the camera at home, so all of these are from phones, but I think you can get an idea of our style. :)
Keep watching for doors opening and open house information!
