Tips for Attending

  2. Register online if available: For the Bridal Inspirations Wedding Expo in Bellingham, this means being automatically entered into all of the fabulous prize drawings AND saves you precious time registering at the door.
  3. Bring pre-printed address labels: They'll save you time entering drawings that vendors offer. Include your first and last name, address, phone number, email and wedding date.
  4. Stock your purse: Include one or two pens, your checkbook and datebook in case you've found the perfect vendor.
  5. Bring your fiancee, your mom or a few friends: Talk to them throughout the expo to get their feedback and get their help gathering information and items.
  6. Take your time: The expo allows you to meet and greet vendors that you may want to use for your wedding. Talk to them, ask them questions, see if they may be a good fit before setting up a consult. It's a little legwork that can help you narrow down who you will work with.
  7. Remeber first come, first served: This includes events like wedding seminars and the fashion show. These events often have limited seating so keep that in mind if there's an event that you want to attend.
  8. Make it an all day thing!: There's a lot to see and do at an expo. Make the ticket price worth your while, attend as many things as possible and take advantage of everything there is to offer! It's all there to help you have the best wedding possible!

Merry Christmas from BB Jean Events, Bellingham Wa Wedding Planner

I love Christmas season! For me, this time of year is all about celebration, family and reflection. By tomorrow afternoon, I will be with my family catching up on all the great moments of 2009, but before I go I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you. Thank you to my readers, my clients-past and present, my fellow vendors, and everyone else that has supported BB Jean. It's because of you that we get to do what we love everyday!

And to you, aforementioned awesome people, we wish you a very merry, safe and happy holiday and lots of joy for the new year!

Mike+May: A Beautifully Rainy Bellingham Wedding!

In the world of wedding folklore and tradition, it's said a couple will be very lucky and blessed if it rains on their wedding day. Well, if this rings true, Mike and May are going to have the greatest life ever (although the fact that they're crazy about eachother doesn't hurt either!). It sprinkled, it poured with everything in between on their wedding and yet the whole day turned out beautifully!

As before, photography created by Zinchuk Studios in Seattle!

Congratulations to the both of you! We wish you a very happy and long life together :)

Bryan and Sheralyn were married last September at the Hotel Bellwether. From the moment we met for our first planning session, I knew these two were going to be fun to work with. On the big day, they were relaxed, happy and couldn't keep their eyes off of eachother which made for a fun, elegant and easy going afternoon for everyone!

Photography was provided by Tania of Azzura Photography in Seattle. Stunning photos right?! I thought so too! Not only were Tania and her assistant easy to work with, but they did an amazing job as well. I can't wait to work with them again!
