Spring Bridal Show at the Granite Rose

This past weekend was the spring bridal show at the Granite Rose (http://www.graniterose.com/) in Hampstead NH. For those of you who aren’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:

The inside is beautiful too, they keep it up very nicely and it has a large main room (The Embassy Room) with two built-in bars and plenty of room to accommodate different seating arrangements. The color scheme was pink and light green, which is the wedding colors of many of my spring brides. There is a smaller room downstairs which I didn’t have a chance to see. One thing that stood out to me were the chairs; they were noticeably nicer than most function facilities and very comfortable – you wouldn’t need chair covers for these. Also, the staff members I had a chance to talk to were very friendly, helpful and professional.

It was great to meet all the brides-to-be and to check out the other vendors. A vendor I hadn’t seen before was a dance studio that teaches pole dancing – 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!

Bridal Shows

Last night I participated at the “New England Bride” bridal show at the Radisson Hotel in Nashua. It is a great place for pictures as it resembles a castle with fantastic brick archways in the main lobby. We had a great turnout and made some appointments. My next Bridal Show will be in Hampstead NH, at the Granite Rose. If you would like to attend you can get tickets at http://nhbridalshowcase.com/ Tickets are $5 at the door, or $2 online.
