Over the last few months, I have intentionally decided to become more sociable. Recently my friend Kiya's boyfriend popped the only question a girl wants to hear "Will you marry me" and of course she said yes! So, what's next other than go hard on the bridal stuff! Yay! I was so excited about the thought of her getting married that I signed our group up for bridal events through the end of the year and what better way to start it out.. budget savvy.. Oh we are here for that. I hear about a lot of events, but they are mainly after the fact, so I recently began using Eventbrite to search the area and I am glad I did.
Two of my friends and I showed up at the event and Kiya almost did not make it! Whew. Thankfully she did because she kept winning door prizes and EVERYONE in our corner (about) 5 brides won at least 2 or 3 prizes each. I talked that up. The prizes were big deals from a wedding dress to a $500 gift towards rentals and decor (Yay Kiya was the winner of that)! They gave away bridal make overs, catering, had food and cake tastings etc. it was just amazing. It was a well organized event and we really had a good time. If you are not familiar with this event, it's hosted in both North and South Carolina. Be sure to look it up and the owner Teresa. She's a sweetheart.
