More than 800 people and nearly 100 brides to be came out on Sunday to sample delicious cuisine, see some incredible bridal couture and of course, meet Say Yes to the Dress-Atlanta star, Monte Durham.
Monte was the most gracious guest, stopping to talk, sign autographs and take photos with just about everyone attending the event. He also gave his expert advice on the gowns modeled during the fashion show. (Remember ladies, thin fabric, thin bride).
Monte also gave one Wilson County teenager a HUGE treat! 13 year old Erin Pinkston sent an email to Wilson Living explaining that she was a huge fan of Monte and would love to meet him. Because her email was so sweet, we invited Erin and her mom to join Monte and the rest of us at the after party immediately following the show. This was an occasion none of us would have missed.
We would like to thank all of you who came out to the Blushing Bridal Show. And stay tuned. We will be hosting another event soon.
So let’s move on to the next item on our agenda. And that’s the Wilson Living Magazine Bridal Issue. The cover has been chosen and the layout is complete. Readers will not be disappointed with this issue. Look for this issue on news stands March 4.
