November 11, 2014 Meet And Greet at Show Bride Chesapeake Noon to 1pm

RSVP Here:

Stop by for one hour to meet and greet anyone promoting a business, especially a wedding business. We have been business networkers for over a decade and continue to do so. Because of neighboring venues not always available for speed networking or power lunch, we have made it simple and shorter for you to keep current as well as connect with new and existing contacts. You never know how the power of networking can get you that service, idea or exposure to get you current or to the next level. Anyone who attends this one can bring in 50 bag inserts we can stuff into goodie bags for the next bridal show on November 23rd at The Founders Inn and Spa! Hope to see you on November 11th!


You can also buy a gown at The Autumn Spectacular Bridal Event

Brides looking for that special gown will be able to purchase it at The Autumn Spectacular Bridal Event Show. Frenchie Johnson will be upstairs, 1st room to the left, at a table next to the Donation Station Center. These will not, however be the gowns that are donated or from the fashion show. These are totally different gowns. We will have beautiful, quality gowns available for sale at reduced prices! They will be “cash and carry” only so be prepared to purchase on the spot. You don’t want to miss out on this special opportunity to get a great value!
