The Philly Bridal Expo

Even though I've been sick as a dog this week, today I was feeling slightly better... or drugged up enough not to waste the day in bed. I also got tickets to the Philly Bridal Expo and as my first official outing with Bridesmaids, I did not intend to miss it!

Alyssa, Shiela, and I trudged out in the not-too-freezing cold and took the train into the city. The expo had lots of vendors- florists, caterers giving out food, bakeries giving out cake, salons giving out make up and updos, and even a mobile spray-tan or teeth-whitening option! Who knew!?

We got tons and tons of very helpful information and then we made our way over to the Downtown Marriott, which is actually attached to the convention center, so that was very nice! The Marriott did not disappoint, they had a great photobooth where we got our pictures taken and a complementary bookmark to hold the strip. We got some more delicious food samples, including mimosas, amazing pumpkin cake from Anne's Cake Pan (it seriously was to die for!) and even a Starbucks Hot Cocoa/Coffee bar.

All in all, it was a terrific day and we got tons of info to continue the hunt for the perfect venue/vendors.
