Last weekend, my wedding venue, Patuxent Greens,香港天下彩报码, had a Bridal Expo. I wasn’t sure what to expect, since they have never had anything like that since I’ve known them. I was only going so I could show my MIL and MOH the venue. I knew the staff just changed over, and they brought in some managers from their corporate office,http://www.55548.info/www_55548_info/201503/6.html, so I am guessing they were looking to update their image.
Well,http://www.673344.info/www_673344_info/201503/9.html, they outdid themselves that day!
They set the entire clubhouse up with all sorts of preferred vendors. That was impressive to me by itself, since I had been asking for a preferred vendor list from them for almost a year, and (until this event) they said they didn’t have one. They had some free food,六和合彩88开奖结果,http://www.740000.org/www_740000_com/201503/175.html, wine tastings, and cake/cupcake samples. YUM!
As my mother was walking around,http://www.38636.info/xianggang6hecai/201503/7.html,http://www.29946.org/29946_com/201503/177.html, she became completely impressed with the photobooth vendor they had onsite, MD Mojo Photo and Video Booths. A little background story: one of my first major purchases for the wedding (outside of venue and photography) was a Groupon voucher for a photobooth,http://www.595999.org/www_595999_org/201503/184.html, and because of the comments from all you lovely bees, I did some checking on the company. Sure enough, the reviews were terrible! I read the fine print in the Groupon description that mentioned “taxes and gratuity” were not included with the cost of the voucher (and I was cool with that), but some of the reviews on Yelp and WeddingWire stated that the company charged more in these hidden fees than the cost of the original value. If I doubled the cost, it would be almost the same price as hiring a booth a regular price! And to make it worse,http://www.577588.info/577588_com/201503/7.html, the horror stories from other brides said the company charged the fee to their account without any warning or communication! I tried calling the company to see if they could shed some light on the negative reviews they had received, and I was told to leave several messages, which were not returned. Needless to say,http://www.00448.org/www_00448_org/201503/184.html,118开奖现场, I was not taking any chances, so I canceled my Groupon voucher and received my money back. I was content to not have a photobooth after all that hassle, and I had not thought about it since then.
Back to the Bridal Expo: my mother spent the vast majority of the afternoon harassing inquiring about the set up and breakdown time, the quantity of photos, the inner workings of the machine, and most importantly, the cost of Mojo’s Photobooth. It also didn’t hurt that they set up their booth in the EXACT spot I imagined having the booth for the wedding. And my mother even dragged my MIL into the booth to test it out! I thought it was hilarious because it is usually like pulling teeth to get either one of them to take a picture (unless Baby Angel is involved). Here are the results of our test photoshoot, complete with props and wacky faces fueled by free champagne:
I enjoyed the other vendors they had in attendance as well,特码网心水论坛,http://www.74772.info/liuhemianfeixinshuiluntan/201503/9.html, and I especially appreciated the variety in vendor types and price ranges. Had this event occurred a little earlier in my planning process, I would have probably booked my entire wedding in one day.
