Back in Syracuse, I spent a lot of time working with local event planners to put on expos, festivals, and vendor shows to highlight local businesses. This weekend it was interesting to be on the other side, as I attended the Events with Style Albany Bridal Event.
Approximately 50 vendors showed up at the Normanside Country Club in Delmar, ranging from photo booths and traditional photographers, venues, catering companies, and entertainment. The first 200 brides in the door got a free goodie bag (guilty) with gift certificates, a free nail polish and hair pin, and some business cards.
Jon came with me, of course, but many of the vendors were shocks yet grateful that he came. Apparently many grooms do not attend, which is strange because it is your wedding too.
We are optimistic about an entertainment service we saw there. We are just waiting on a few details before we can set the rest of the plans in action.
