Ringing in the New Year!

Its come time to ponder: is it the end of the year, or the fresh beginning of a new one???

I’d like to think it’s both. A time where we can reflect on the last year, see how we’ve grown and changed, laugh again at the funny moments and anticipate the coming year.

And so with reflectingit’s been a fabulous year. Not only did About a Bride “travel” from the States and launch in the Niagara region, but now it’s grown up into an official federal Canadian corporation! And since it’s Canadian “integration”, I’ve had the opportunity to meet a ton of wonderful, aspiring AND inspiring people – both fellow industry professionals and clients. Ah, yes, my 2008 clients. What a beautiful bunch of people! Thank you so much for sharing your special moments with me!

And now the anticipation part!

  • About a Bride will continue it’s Fabulous Fashion Fridays, highlighting spectacular wedding dresses. Also, this column will extend to Bridesmaids dresses as well. After all, those are your girls; they’ve gotta look good too!
  • Other exciting news is that About a Bride will launch a monthly newsletter with articles from local vendors, planning info and special features like “Inside Your Wedding” column and gallery. What’s extremely cool about this newsletter — especially if you are a bride – is that you can have a featured picture/article in the newsletter telling about your upcoming wedding and the chance to win a small but very special gift from About a Bride. *Brides, please email me at ellen@aboutabride.ca to enter*

Oh and did I mention that this newsletter is just in its baby steps to becoming the About a Bride Magazine?

Yes, it will be a fantastic year!

I am also looking forward to my upcoming events — these listed are just the first third of the year! Among the events About a Bride is hosting and coordinating:

  • the “Tulle Party” – networking party for wedding/event professionals;
  • the “OnBoard!” – Basketball Tournament & Fundraiser;
  • the “Only Way to Love” – Valentine’s party for a local church;
  • the “Safety in the Sandbox” – Safety Awareness Festival & Picnic for a local Niagara community;
  • the “Night at the Opera Ball” – a Masquerade Ball & Fundraiser

Could there be more? Yes! About a Bride is also launching a contest for 2009 brides and grooms come mid-February. The lucky winning couple pretty much gets a free wedding! And actually, everyone who participates is a winner — for just by entering the contest, you get “gift certificates” from the vendors in the different categories! How’s that for planning?!

About a Bride Weddings & Events, Inc., wishes you a wonderful and safe holiday and hopes everyone has a fantastic new year filled with joy, peace and wonderful memories!
