Wedding Vendors!

You’re invited to take part in a wedding expo unlike anything you’ve ever seen. The Not-So-Big Wedding Boutique & Challenge is your chance to show off your talents to a group of highly motivated brides-to-be in an upscale Potomac setting, share the media spotlight, and win a grand prize of $500.

Here’s how the “Challenge” part works, in a nutshell: Round up a team of no more than four other individuals who provide complementary wedding services (e.g. if you’re a caterer, find a floral designer, musician and photographer), and work together to create a wedding for $15K or less. It’s a real challenge--and in today’s economy, an idea that’s sure to appeal to brides, their fathers (!) and the media. Click here to learn more specifics on how the Challenge works.

Then comes the big day! On Sunday, November 8, from Noon-5:00 p.m., the Not-So-Big Wedding Boutique will take place at beautiful Rockwood Manor in Potomac, Maryland. At the Boutique, you’ll design a table that displays your team’s Not-So-Big Wedding Package in all its glory to a group of enthusiastic brides . Rockwood Manor, one of Montgomery Parks’ four Event Centers, is easily accessible from Bethesda, Rockville, Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C., just off I-495 and Clara Barton Parkway.

Here’s what you get for a team entry fee of $500:

  • Display table at the Not-So-Big Wedding Boutique

  • Not-So-Big Wedding Boutique Registration and Attendee lists

  • Strong promotional support of event, including but not limited to:

    • Web presence on Montgomery Parks’ NotSoBigWedding website and blog (pre- and post-event).

    • Montgomery Parks press releases to major local, area and national media outlets.

    • Email and snail mail promotions to prospective bride attendees.

    • Banners (web and physical), flyers, posters and more.

    • Chance to win the Grand Prize of $500 for your team.

    • The challenge and sheer fun of participating in an event that’s bound to
      attract lots of bridal and media attention.

Are you up to the Challenge? Form a team and register today! Registration forms are due no later than September 30, 2009. The Challenge is limited to 20 teams, so I encourage you to act quickly. Click here for the team form and more detailed information.
