Emerald beauty…

17 Jan

We really want to thank all of the beautiful brides who stopped by our booth on Sunday, January 8, 2012 at the WNOK Bridal Expo. We had such a wonderful time meeting so many brides… and their cute grooms! The bridal show was so much fun… we highly recommend it to any newly engaged bride and groom… as well as the MOBs and MOGs. Every vendor offers such a different and stylish motif to their booth… it’s fun just to see how everyone sets up and comes up with such creative ideas!

At Meagan Warren Weddings, our theme for this year’s booth all started with an antique, emerald-green vase I found at antique store in Columbia, SC. It reminded me of ‘The Wizard of Oz‘ and the Emerald Green City… however, I decided to put a more vintage/chic spin on things. My fabulous mother, Debbie Calvo, is an interior decorator and arranged the beautiful flowers. Kudos to mom!

Here are a few favorite shots from the show:


And… kudos to the fabulous Lori Anna Varnadoe for assisting me at our booth that day. We met at Clemson years ago, and Lori Anna has worked many, many weddings with me since then. She is always such a pleasure to be around!

We hope to see you at the next bridal show at the State Fairgrounds… coming up on Sunday, February 26, 2012. Save the date for the 31st Annual St. Andrews Woman’s Club Bridal Showcase – click here for more info.

We are still researching ideas for the show… but for now, be thinking of navy and blush colors. Oh la la!

{Happy Planning!}
