I attended the Central PA Bridal Expo for the first time this year. It was at the beautiful Penn Stater Hotel in State College. It was wonderful connecting with brides and vendors alike. Some brides had been following me online and wanted to connect and I saw several people I knew who were getting married. It was an exciting event.
As you would expect, there were all different types of vendors to help brides plan their dream weddings. The event was sponsored by Formalities, a bridal and formal wear shop in Bellefonte, and the gowns they showed were just beautiful. One of the cool things about the show is that models dressed as brides would walk through the entire space so brides could view the dresses as they checked out other vendors. What a great idea?!
There were representatives from some gorgeous venues, a harpist, caterers (I got hungry just looking at the pictures of their food!), bakers, photographers, videographers, donuts (Duck Donuts was there), DJs, event rental companies, florists and many more. RE Farm Cafe (a local wedding venue that also caters) was next to me and I tried their vegetarian sushi. It was seriously delicious and the ladies were so lovely.
Thank you to everyone who stopped by. It was great connecting with you all and happy wedding planning!
I attended my debut vendor event in December 2019 and couldn't think of a better place than the Bellefonte Under the Lights Winter Market. There were bright white tents, cafe lights, a dreamy atmosphere... things Pink Peony Bride is all about.
The event was set up along the Bellefonte waterfront with the market in the parking lot of the gorgeous Gamble Mill. Cafe lights were strung all along the entire area and into the market. So dreamy! Vendors had come from Downtown Bellefonte and all over Centre County. There were warming stations to keep you nice and cozy while you shopped and food trucks with all sorts of delicious food.
The turn out was fantastic despite the cold and rain. I got to meet countless people as they checked out the different vendors and everyone was extremely supportive with well wishes all around. Looking forward to next year's event.
