I have my first wedding expo coming up on the 28th! I've been reluctant to do them in the past, mainly because I feel like they're just not the place for an itty bitty company like mine. "Regular" bridal expos tend to work better for big ticket vendors, so if I'm going to do one, it needs to be something a little different:
The ladies who started Indie Wed wanted a wedding expo that felt more like a craft show. Something with smaller vendors, handmade items, and products that don't look like the same old wedding stuff you see everywhere. Too bad it wasn't around when I was planning (I was about 6 months early), because I definitely would've checked it out for myself.
Needless to say, I'm excited! And nervous. But mostly excited.
I feel like there's a never-ending list of stuff to do in the next two weeks, but I've managed to get designing some new stuff out of the way:
Now I just have to make samples of made-to-order items, work on the table setup, price everything, get tissue paper and shopping bags, paint the stands for the earrings holders...
So what are you working on lately? Anybody else doing a January/February show? Are you adding a spring line to your shop?
