Over the years, the team at TopWeddingShows.com has had the unique ability to get to know many local brides and grooms-to-be while the couples are in various stages of wedding planning. After witnessing thousands of wedding planning experiences and getting to know the people involved, we have realized that each and every wedding is unique: in style, size, experience, stresses and of course, the personalities of each bride and groom. We have decided to highlight some of the brides and groom’s-to-be in the area and share their wedding panning stories. If you are getting married, I hope you find each story comforting to know there are other ladies experiences the same highs and lows of wedding planning and you may pick up some inspiring tips from each other as well. It’s also kinda nice to be reminded that there is a Whole Lotta Love in this region;) Happy reading.
