I’ve twittered, I’ve facebooked and I’ve literally littered the internet (and the streets) with event announcements. If you aren’t sick of me talking about The Perfect Wedding Show by now then I have both good news and then a little bad news for you… followed by some worse news for you (I’ve always been a giver).
The Good News
The show is done! Over! Kaput. It happened on Sunday April 17, and is now over. My social life that was on hold for 6 weeks during planning and execution (with a one week hiatus in Cancun, Mexico, hee hee hee) is now back on and in full swing. Even now as I’m writing this I’m getting ready to go out. “But it’s Monday!” the more innocent of you might say and to those underage children (I’m assuming) I’m forced to reply very scholarly way: “And???”
The Bad News
This post is ALL about the show. Not only that, but I’ll talk about it 20,000 words too…
The Worse News
The show went so well that we’re already planning several more. So…. more posts about wedding shows to come. Has worse news ever been so exciting?
I hope you enjoyed my 20,500+ word blog post. For those of you who aren’t getting it and are busy clicking away and looking for the other 20,000 words, don’t worry about it too much because eventually…
You’ll get the picture. 😉
Braving the cold and the pouring rain, a scrappy group of faux wedding party participants came out to Vancouver’s famed Robson Street on Sunday, April 10, 2011 in support of Dress for Success Vancouver.
Proving that people don’t like to come out when it rains, the estimated dozens who were expected to attend got whittled down to an enthusiastic few who withstood the heavy downpours with big smiles and even bigger hearts.
They handed out pamphlets, informed passers-by about the upcoming Dress for Success power walk and provided donation cards for anyone wishing to make a contribution.
The organizers are trying to raise awareness for Dress for Success Vancouver, an organization that empowers low and no income women to transition into the workforce by providing them with professional attire and a small working wardrobe to get them started in their roles. They also provide other services including a clothing stylist, career counseling and an ongoing mentoring program.
All this in support of the Perfect Wedding Show taking place this Sunday, April 17 at the Executive Airport Plaza Hotel in Richmond featuring traditional vendors offering unique wedding options for all bride-to-be’s.
And this is how the article SHOULD have appeared on all the local newspapers if I had any say in it. Oh well. 2 news outlets out of how ever many there are in Vancouver should be good enough for now.
