Behind the Scenes : Bridal Show at Running Deer Golf Club

When the slower wedding season comes around, that doesn't mean the wheels stop turning here at A Garden Party!  This is our brainstorming season, where we focus on upcoming wedding trends and presentations to help market ourselves to potential brides.  With photo shoots and bridal shows, we are able to give clients a glimpse of what we have to offer.

With the upcoming FOUND bridal show at Running Deer this weekend, we thought we'd give you a behind-the-scenes tour about what it's like to be a vendor at these shows.  We hope you can see the heart and time that goes into our first impressions, because we are so excited to meet you, future clients! A big thank you to Dana Zarin Photography - our new favorite local - for mixing up our portfolio with these images.  

There's a reason we call the staff at Running Deer our friendors - here's event coordinator, Olivia Michaliewicz helping fit fairy lights into our LOVE sign.

We decided to stage a inviting seating area, so that we could have a comfortable place to talk to brides as well as show off some of our rental inventory for lounge areas -a HUGE trend in the wedding world.

Bits of marketing materials (past work, business cards) best help summarize who we are to brides and keep the conversation flowing.

Small details (floral crown, candles, centerpieces) create a finished, polished look.  Exactly the image we want to portray when it comes to wedding planning!  

Our terrarium table made a guest appearance, one of our favorite reps for our unique approach to decor.

We love playing with centerpiece samples, so that potential clients can visualize what their table dynamic may look like.
