December 9, 2012 I took a great leap of faith and exhibited at my very first Bridal Show held at - Lake Region Yacht & Country Club. I had such an amazing time networking and meeting with local businesses in my community. It was a great show with a nice sized crowd and more than I could have ever imagined it to be : )
It was so awesome being able to witness first hand the "talent" that was sitting right here (in my community) under my nose all of the time ... I had the most difficult time sitting still and "manning" my booth ... I wanted to venture out and connect with the other businesses and get to know all of them.
Admittedly, initially I was a little intimidated going head to head with so many professional and established businesses, but I was welcomed with open arms by all of the vendors. I didn't feel as though I was in a competition while I was at the Bridal Show ... I felt like I was networking with a group of "old friends" and we all had something different to share with the crowd and that's what made each booth unique.
Overall, the experience was great... the only thing I would complain about is MY TIME MANAGEMENT! I didn't get to work on all of my items until the week of the event ... and I've beaten myself up about it plenty of times (since then). I poured my heart into the items I had on hand, but I know deep down within I could have done a better job if I would have managed my time a little better : /
So, I definitely take everything with this entire experience as a lesson learned... I CANNOT WAIT TO SHARE ... the good news that I recently received weeks following this show - stay tuned for details!
