Maybe you know, and maybe you don’t but every Christmas and New Years we spent countless hours prepping for our largest event of the year, The Celebrations Bridal Event! This year, we have the opportunity to be involved for a second time, during Modern Bride’s first Summer bridal event. We are so thrilled to be able to have a jump into meeting and greeting all the fantastic 2017 brides. I’ve already met with a few, and let me tell you, it’s shaping up to be a beautiful year for paper in weddings already!
I can’t lie when I say it’s a lot of work to prepare for the shows. We have to keep daily emailing, proofing and printing going while we are also working on new promo material, signs, cards for giveaways (ooh, stay tuned!) and making sure our example books are looking as good as ever. But, the day of the show, when brides and their guests come to our booth smiling and so excited, it makes it all worth it! I love bridal fairs because it allows for a no-pressure meet and greet, to see if you think we will be a good fit for designing your invitations. If you think so after you leave, then that’s when the magic begins!
“I love bridal fairs because it allows for a no-pressure meet and greet, to see if you think we will be a good fit for designing your invitations.”
So let me tell you why, specifically, I think you should come and see us! First, we are giving away a free seat to our Handlettering 101 workshop for our overall giveaway. You can get a token to spin the wheel at the show, and hopefully you land our booth!
Second, everyone gets one of our new, never before seen Sip, Sip, Hooray! koozies. I mean, so. stinkin’. cute.
Next, we are giving away a basket of “A Few of My Favorite Things” in our booth! I mean, this basket is too legit to quit!
Some of the items include: Hamley’s Bake Shop Cookie, our Alabama Heart Stamp, handlettered neoprene koozies & notebooks, our favorite Anthropologie scent & mug, our favorite pens & pencils and (not pictured) a bottle of wine and a Salt + Paperie hat!
Oh, and did we also mention you also win a free, custom wax seal? Oh yes, that too. Boom. All you have to do is come by and fill out some of your favorite things at our booth. These are easy, guys, like “what’s your favorite color?” Really, easy. 2017 Brides that have already booked, you’re totally still eligible, too.
Lastly, you can have so many of your questions answered by picking up one of our new informational packets. We’ve spent hours working on, and perfecting this little piece that includes a step-by-step process to thinking through all your wedding day designing.
Okay, I meant for this blog to be short and sweet, but apparently, I have a lot to say about it! Last thing, I promise! My other favorite thing about bridal show day is all of the people that come by and tell me they “already follow me on instagram”. I still haven’t found the correct in-person response because I’m fairly awkward about it, but here’s what I’m thinking, “SO FUN! Thank you, thank you, thank you!” But really, I appreciate everyone that comes by just to say hello and tell us that they follow our little story through squares, even if you’ve already got your invitations elsewhere. Hopefully, by Sunday some of my too-much-coffee jitters have worn off!
Hope to see you on
Sunday, July 31 from 12-5p
