It's a busy life...


So while in the throes of planning our October wedding, I am also starting a wedding planning business.  This is so exciting because it's something I've wanted to do for a very long time.  I have never felt more drawn to anything than I am to planning and entertaining.  This new venture is exciting, but it's also a little scary.

What if I don't know enough?

What if no one wants to hire me?

What if I make a mistake and (dare I say it) mess up an element of someone's wedding?!?!

GASP!

As long as I don't let myself worry about these things and doubt myself--I'm ok. 

I am in the middle of planning a very exciting event to jump start my business.  It's going to be a CLASSY, UPSCALE and FUN bridal show.  So far we have:
Venue
Caterer
DJ
Florist
Baker
Stationer
Plastic Surgeon's office (mini-facials)
Make-up artist
Bridal shop
Videographer
Photographer
The list continues...

The venue is this AWESOME urban industrialized hall that is going to be perfect for this event.  We'll have great music, fantastic food, fun things to do and of course, COCKTAILS!
My hope is for brides to bring their girls with them and have a fun night.  They can sample food, cake, look at invitations, table decor and more.  Doesn't that sound like a blast??

Now I just have to come up with a super catchy name for it...

Any suggestions??

You are truly AMAZING!

You've got it all together, girl.

I'm crazy impressed. So why not name the event after the company or something similar?

Like :

Love Your Brides

(Which I like because it's all
Love,
Your Brides

OR

Love Your Brides when you say it.), and it's similar to the company name.
