Thursday was a very exciting day for me. It was my very first Association of Bridal Consultants meeting where the best of the best in the wedding industry mix and mingle. I was super excited to network with great wedding professionals in the Tampa Bay area!
Then, the night before the meeting, a surprise guest was added to the list – a Bridezilla! When I saw Krystal’s name as the special guest, I instantly knew which ‘zilla it was. How could you forget the Clearwater bride with Jolly Trolley issues?
Turns out, the topic of the meeting was Reality TV. Krystal was really sweet and shared her experience of getting married with a camera crew. I could not imagine cameras following me always waiting to capture something crazy. A lot of her vendors were there as well and talked about how it was like for them working around the cameras. We laughed about the trolley and the poor driver and raved about her beautiful hair and makeup. The takeaway, reality TV is not real. Krystal was definitely not like how she was portrayed on the show! Although, throughout the whole meeting I debated whether or not I should ask to take a picture with her. Would that bridezilla surface again? Surely not!
First David Tutura (see September 2010) and now a Bridezilla! I’m on a roll with WeTV!
The meeting was a success! I met fantastic people and made great connections not only for my current job but when I start my own wedding planning business! I am already looking forward to the next meeting!
