Posted February 6, 2013 | 3 Comments

Wow, we had an AMAZING time at the Bridal Extravaganza of Atlanta! What an incredible bridal show! It had the most beautiful booths, the friendliest vendors, and the sweetest brides-to-be (+ grooms!) and their friends and family. As promised, today we’re sharing a brief recap of the show, some snapshots of our booth, and a few details of this event. Read on to find out the full scoop…

Bridal Extravaganza of Atlanta – Recap

The Emmaline Bride booth was situated in the Vintage area of the show. We brought a vintage / rustic vibe, combined with a handcrafted flair (thanks to the wonderful artisans who helped contribute their work). The ‘Emmaline Bride’ banner was made by me in a palette of fun printed papers and simple hot pink twine. We loooooved the barn door bar and Chiavari chairs… the perfect combination of rustic chic elegance.

I had the opportunity to meet David Tutera backstage who was gracious and kind.

If you stopped by our booth, you saw our signature favor bags (filled with yummy candies) which coincided with a giveaway of my book, The Handcrafted Wedding! Many brides-to-be took home a signed copy of the book!

We were surrounded by lovely vendors in the ‘Vintage’ area of the show. We had the opportunity to chat with Kat and Van Earl of Mary Mac’s Tea Room in Atlanta. They had a gorgeous display complete with a faux fireplace mantle, white poms, burlap table linens… and, might I add, the most AMAZING food. (Their cinnamon rolls were the best I’ve ever had!)

We had an amazing time at the Bridal Extravaganza of Atlanta and can’t thank Linda Surles and Donna Jakulski enough for having us as a part! Thanks to all of the lovely brides, grooms, mothers, maid of honors, and bridesmaids who stopped by our booth. It was wonderful to meet you all!
