CW Designs has had a wonderful start to 2016 and the good times kept rolling when we attended the 2016 McKinney Bridal Show at the McKinney Performing Arts Center. We set up in our familiar cozy spot with our new video montage of some of our favorite work. The McKinney bridal show is one of the best if not the best show in DFW. Rebecca Heart of the MPAC does an amazing job getting the word out and putting together some of the best wedding professionals around. We had a wonderful day mingling with fellow vendors and friends and enjoying the energy that only newly engaged couples can provide. It was quite a day!
To our amazement bride after bride and couple after couple were familiar with our work and ETSY shop. Others were followers on Pinterest or actually received wedding invitations and wedding maps designed by us from friends and loved ones. Now it's their turn! One bride was casually talking to her friend about a wedding map she saw at a friends wedding, only to realize that the map she was referencing was featured on our video montage! It really is a small world. Bridal shows are great because you can get a sense of what brides are digging these days. We received some valuable feedback from some well prepared visitors and can't wait to implement what we learned. Other couples were a bit overwhelmed by the daunting task of planning a wedding, but we were able to settle some nerves and point them in the right direction. We love doing that!
Some of the best wedding professionals in the DFW area were within arms reach. They are not only talented professionals, but they genuinely care for their clients. Something we take pride in with our business. People like Julie Shields of Phase3 photography, Julie Blakey of Forever Events and Weddings, Scott Thomas of Creative Touch Audio, Christie Connell of Azure Photography, Wendy Kidd of Each and Every Detail, Lindsay Crump of The Stalk Market, Laura Greiner of the McKinney Sheraton Hotel, and on and on and on. When a bride brought up that she was struggling to decide on a spot for her rehearsal dinner we instinctively suggested our good friends Jason Lewis and Carlos Gonzales at Lot 207. It was awesome and we hope these couples took our advice. We are really proud to be associated with such quality people and appreciate the support we've been given since setting up shop in McKinney. This is a very close knit industry and we know that with such wonderful support from clients, colleagues, and friends, 2016 is sure to be a wonderful year.
