This past weekend was the spring bridal show at the Granite Rose (http://www.graniterose.com/) in Hampstead NH. For those of you who arenâ€™t familiar with Hampstead, it is right off of rte 111 – just a quick drive from either Nashua or Salem.
Even though it is not far off the beaten path, the Granite Rose is in a quiet secluded area. A beautiful event center that is both elegant and rustic with lots of windows to enjoy the view. It also has a wrap-around deck and a gazebo for formal photos. The landscaping was beautiful and will make a great backdrop for outdoor photos. The photo below is from their website:
It was great to meet all the brides-to-be and to check out the other vendors. A vendor I hadnâ€™t seen before was a dance studio that teaches pole dancing â€“ and they had a live demonstration set up right in front of my booth! The more daring brides can check them out at http://www.polebliss.com/.
Going to the shows just reminds me of what a great way it is for brides to check out so many different vendors all in one place. They can hear the DJs, see real flower arrangements, taste the wedding cakes, and even catch a bridal fashion show, all in a couple of hours. It is a great time-saver and a fun way to spend an evening or an afternoon. They also get a chance to meet the vendors in person, which is such an important aspect of choosing the professionals you are trusting to make your day perfect. So get out and go to some!
