Review: Bridal Expo at Westin River North

After I left the bridal expo, I was disappointed.  I had blisters on my feet, I hadn’t had nearly enough cake, and I had sat and waited 30 minutes for the fashion show to start while sitting between perma-tanned, blonde girls with rocks on their fingers the size of small tangerines.  Before I left and happily walked to the el.

When I got to the expo, I had to wait in line for 20 minutes to get in another line for 20 minutes.  All the while, I stared across the room at the cake that awaited me.  Which was gone by the time I got through the line.  I did get some cake tastes from other vendors later.

Now, I don’t want to be Debbie Downer here.  I found a photographer I liked, and many of the vendors (who weren’t crowded) were incredibly nice and helpful.  Some were strange (Bath fitter?  Really?)  But everyone I talked to was more than accomodating.

And when I got home from work on Monday, I had a message:  I won an electric toothbrush from one of the dental vendors!  Yay!

So now I’m sold and will go to more expo’s.  I can’t say no to free stuff.
