I had the honor of attending my first Bridal Benchmark last night! The fabulous City Barbeque catered it. Cameron from Tinker’s Cake Shop brought four different cake samples for all of us to try. My favorite by far was the chocolate.

I had never even realized all the different types of invitations that are out there. Affordable Invitations crafts the most beautiful invitations! Willie Wilson spoke on engagement and wedding photos and showed off some of his most breathtaking photos. Purdon’s Rental showed off their wonderful and affordable tablecloths. Courtney from Griffin Gate Marriott talked to the brides about the venue contracts. So much goes into these contracts, I had no idea! Melissa, Shannon, and Sarah from Clipso Hair Design gave useful hair and make up tips for the days leading up to and the day of the wedding. The lovely ladies from 1782 Events went into to detail about planning the weddings, and all the different ways they could help in doing so. I learned so much from each vendor that spoke. I had a blast at my first Bridal Benchmark and I cannot wait until next weeks!
