Nothing like a giveaway....

In honor of their 500th fan on Facebook, my wonderful colleague, Marni Gold at Creative Custom Cardboxes is sponsoring a fab contest - details are here.

Marni is the driving force behind this very unique product which combines pretty and practical into one great package! Finding a creative way to store your gift and money envelopes can be difficult, but Creative Custom Cardboxes has come up with a great way to accomplish that mission in style! We are honored that Marni designed our "I DO Brunch" box that will be in full use at this year's event to hold all of the entries for the amazing prizes we'll be giving away!!

So - if you need something to put those cards in, contact Marni so she can design something custom especially for your soiree'!!!

In 3.....2....1....

Due to an overwhelming response - registration for my annual "I DO BRUNCH" will close at 6 p.m. (eastern) today. Our original date was supposed to be April 10th - but planners from all over the United States have decided that the Brunch is THE place to be, so they've snatched up tickets left and right!!

It's all good - I created the Brunch to be a wonderful conduit of interaction, networking, beauty, life and fun for my colleagues..and that's exactly what will happen. I'm looking forward to meeting so many people, sharing experiences "from the trenches" and having the opportunity to get all dressed up with someplace to go!!!

If you haven't gotten your ticket - there are 6.5 hours left to do so. After 6 p.m. today - well, you know the drill!!!!

"I DO Brunch" Update

The response to this year's "I DO Brunch" has been positively overwhelming! I'm so excited for the peer-to-peer networking, the cameraderie, the amazing decor, the decadently delicious cuisine, the SWAG......everything is going to be simply fabulous!

Our guests are coming to celebrate our industry and the beginning of spring - by trains, planes and automobiles, over 100 wedding planning professionals will be gathering for what will be THE event of the year! We are honored to welcome our colleagues from not only the Maryland, District of Columbia and Northern Virginia metro areas but from California, Texas, The Carolinas, Georgia, Southern Virginia, Missouri, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut...and the list goes on.

So here's the deal {{{drum roll, please!}}} - As of 9 .am. this morning (March 12, 2010), we only have 38 SEATS left to attend the Brunch. That's it - and once they're gone, they're gone. If you haven't purchased your ticket - now would be a very good time to do so :)

A room block is available at our host hotel, the Sheraton Columbia Town Center AND for our our-of-town attendees who take advantage of the discounted accommodations, we're even providing round-trip luxury transportation service for you from the hotel to the Brunch venue.

Details and registration are available at our website. We're looking forward to seeing ALL of you next month!!!
