We have been busy bees getting ready for our first appearance at the Outer Banks Wedding Expo. Word on the street is they have sold over 900 tickets! That is very exciting, but at the same time a little nerve wracking especially for us newbies. Needless to say, we have been mentally planning out how we want to display one of the most beautiful outdoor wedding venues on the Outer Banks into a 10 ft by 8 ft booth!
So obviously, we have had to do a little shopping. Check out this super fabulous rug for our booth? I just fell in love with its shagginess. It reminds me of a fabulous fur coat. Don’t worry, it’s faux!
Other than interior decorating, we have been ordering promos and goodies from all over the country to makes sure they get here before the weekend. We are hoping and praying that Winter Storm Iago does not delay our UPS delivery!
Planning this little booth has made me reminisce of planning my own wedding. I would do it again in a second! Would any of you? With awesome platforms like Pinterest, there are so many places to share ideas. We will admit it, we are Pinterest junkies! The wedding board is amazing, and you should definitely check it out if you are planning a wedding. Follow us, our name is manteowedding.
So since the booth has been almost ready other than just a few little last minute things, I took a break last Sunday and walked the waterfront and all through downtown Manteo. It was 70 degrees! I just had to snap this awesome pic of Marshes Light which is just steps away from Manteo House. This is a great place to take pictures with your wedding party after the ceremony.
If you have the chance to come through the Outer Banks Wedding Expo, we are booth number 33, located in First Flight High School. The expo will run from Saturday (January 19, 2013) 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. through Sunday (January 20, 2013) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. We hope to see you there!
We will post after the expo with pictures, to let those of you who couldn’t make it know how it all went. It’s official, the 2013 wedding season has begun and we are ready!
