Bridal Expo 2011

On Sunday, January 9th, 2011, Mikado Weddings attended the Bridal Expo at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston.  We were one of the wedding vendors that showcased the services that we provide to brides and their wedding party.  We started our day bright an early at 9am to set up our booth which we shared with A Healthy Balance, a fitness group that is located in Quincy, Ma.


There were many different elements to our table.  Days before the event, we gathered a bunch of DIY project ideas we had for the booth.  One of the bigger projects was making the easel to hold up our sign.  First, we purchased 3 long wooden planks about 2.5 inches wide and drilled holes in the tops to hold them all together with a screw.  When we finished building the easel, we painted it a neutral gray to enhance the color of the wood.

Another fun and cost effective DIY project we worked on was putting together a beautiful, seasonally appropriate centerpiece.  Since the weather provided us with an abundance of sticks and branches outside, we figured we could use that to our advantage.  After picking out the perfect branch, Lian painted it gray and sprinkled silver glitter on it and left it to air dry.  Michelle used a vase that she had in her home and filled it with pink tissue paper that she crinkled into little balls.  She also bought pink crystals that had little strings attached to them from Michaels to hang onto the branches.  Michelle had been working on another DIY project for her own wedding and was experimenting with Martha Stewart’s paper roses.  She made enough to place around the rim of the vase.  On the morning of the event, we placed all the pieces together and made a beautiful, soft and wintry centerpiece for our table.

Day of Coordination/Bridal Bootcamp Raffle Ticket

Every bride and her party that visited our booth was offered a raffle ticket that will allow them a chance to win a free “Day of Coordination” package from Mikado Weddings, along with a Bridal Bootcamp from A Healthy Balance.  Each person that filled out a raffle ticket was able to take a personalized Mikado Weddings pen as a gift and each bride was given a special gift of their own.

A BIG congratulations to Elizabeth Earle for winning the raffle ticket! We cannot wait to help and assist you on your big day!
