A LETTER from the EDITOR
What a crazy ride this has been! 5 months ago I would never have thought I would be doing my 4th Annual I Do Wedding Expo. Many might remeber I was ready to retire and sell the network. Many were interested but worried about the work it took to keep the group alive. I decided I didn’t want to see it fade out so I let a few things go and focused on keep alive one of our best events for the group. I was able to let a lot go and recruit some great people to help me this year. Henri Mckeenan took over the of our entertainment planning, Morgaine Faith and Peggie Bundy took on the Fashion Show finding the designers and models to be in the show. And as always, Marla Marx was able to take my vision and turn it into what you see today. Thank you all so much for being such a continued support. I don’t want to forget to thank the group members either and our sponsors & vendors. Your enthusiasm and excitement helped me keep going with this labor of love on days I really wanted to crawl back under the sheets and forget it all. I hope you enjoy this year’s theme “We build your dream around you” because that is exactly what this network of wedding designers, planners, and creators do. Make sure you share this with friends and family. We have some great events lined up throughout the expo and we would love to have you all join us there.
