Wedding Open House

I was a vendor at a wedding open house at Maplewood Greens in Renton on Saturday.  I had a wonderful time!  It was an opportunity for me to meet quite a few brides (and their moms, fiance’s, and friends) and let them hear about what I do as a wedding celebrant.  Since I like being around and meeting people, it was an afternoon well spent.  Sara and her staff did an excellent job organizing the event – kudos!

On the left you’ll note my display table…it was fun to be able to have a table all to myself and meet not only the brides-to-be, but also the various vendors.  I was joined at this event by business people from the community; photographers, florists, decorators, caterers, a bakery, a hair stylist, and wine supplier.  All great people and very talented in their craft.

Another “benefit” of participating in this open house was the fact that there were exceptional “goodies” to taste.  My table happened to be located strategically next to the Maplewood catering staff displays, and I was more than happy to provide them with a test subject.  I was also close to the CJ’s Bakery cake sampling station…so I was well set for the afternoon.  I even gave suggestions to some of the folks passing by as to which of the items on the buffet line were my particular favorites.

All in all, a great afternoon…I highly encourage brides and their fiances to check out wedding open houses and events like them in their area; what great ways for you to discover what’s available in a whole range of venders and suppliers, as well as get some cool ideas as to how to put on your ideal wedding!
