Can you believe that the first week of the new year is already over? Yes, even in this bitter cold, there are plans to be made, shops to visit and aspirin to take. Am I right? For those of you who are new to my column, every first Friday is dedicated to the grooms. You know, showing the men in your lives some love. Yes it will have lots of styling, to-do’s and gift ideas, but also some straight talk from some of the top professionals in the industry. So I’m hoping that beginning Jan. 15th, you (and your grooms) will come back because there is going to some great information as well as an amazing groom give-a-way.
I can’t think of a better kick off the 2010 Grooms series. Don’t worry ladies, next week there will be some great give-a-ways for you too. I’m so excited!!
Today, I wanted to give you a list of some really great events and sales coming up. Mark your calendar.
Sometimes when I’m just sitting here, trying to figure out how to make my column the premiere wedding source for you; how to provide you with the best and most timely information possible, it just comes to me. Why not just do it – you know, just put the information out there because you never know when there will be a ‘new reader’. So I’ve decided that I will make sure listings of events, trunk shows and other fun stuff will be published twice a month. Now let’s keep it real, there may be months when nothing is going on – it happens. Well during those times, I’ll let you know that too.
So let’s get this New Year started with things for this month. As I have said in the past, if you are a vendor or even a bride/groom that knows of a cool event, let me know about it. Send it to me at bridalease (at) gmail (dot) com. I’m happy to post all about it and I look forward to meeting a bunch of you in the coming months. Also just a reminder that sample sales and trunk shows are subject to change without notice, so make sure to call to confirm.
