Reception Recaps

Evan & Vinny

There are very few times where I am at a loss for words, but the moments after Evan & Vinny’s wedding reception concluded was one of those times. Never did I expect in my wildest dreams to be a part of a wedding reception that wild and that crazy. The best way I can describe the dance floor experience at The Agriplex at the Washington State Fair? Take a wedding reception, mix it up with the vibe of a college fraternity party,  and stir in some scenes from a Lil’ Jon & The Eastside Boyz music video, and the result is one epic celebration going down on the dance floor.
Which is exactly what Evan & Vinny wanted. Signed, sealed, delivered, #MakeHerBaker.
If you still aren’t sure what that looks like, watch the highlight video posted above – which features ONLY the highlights I could safely include for all audiences! (Ever seen a bunch of girls twerking on the sweetheart table at a wedding reception? I can now say I have.) If you want to see all of the highlights, hit up Evan & Vinny, as they have the full Video Capture that my video guru, Matt, expertly captured throughout the night.

Reception Recaps

Amanda & Christopher

When I watch the reception recap from Amanda & Christopher’s wedding reception, I immediately notice the diversity of the dance floor: guests young and old dancing and celebrating together. And really, that’s what it is is all about: two sets of families and friends – who may have never met before! – coming together to celebrate as one big giant family.
And in the end, that is what matters most.

12 Questions To Ask At A Wedding Show

Yesterday, I updated my 25 tips to help you make the most of attending a bridal show for 2019. In that post, I encouraged brides to bring a list of questions. If you aren’t sure what to ask, that’s perfectly okay! Here are twelve great questions – some even hard-hitting! – to ask when meeting vendors at your local bridal show.

“Are you available for my wedding date?”
It may seem obvious, but this is the very first question you should ask; especially at larger shows with hundreds of vendors exhibiting. If the vendor is already booked, it’ll save both of you a lot of valuable time.

25 Tips For Attending A Wedding Show

With the euphoria of your engagement starting to taper off, it’s time to start the planning process towards your wedding day! And one of the best ways to begin the planning process is by attending a local Puget Sound wedding show! A wedding show – also referred to as a bridal show, wedding expo or bridal fair – is a great tool to kickstart the planning of your wedding; even the busiest of brides will benefit from attending one.

In addition to finding creative inspiration from all the great ideas on display, you’ll have the opportunity to meet local wedding professionals in your area face-to-face. It’s a great opportunity to ask questions and learn more about their experience and what they offer. In essence, attending a wedding show is a great way to accumulate a massive amount of information in a very efficient amount of time.
