Glorious gowns, fabulous floral arrangements and more scrumptious cake than I could possibly consume in two lifetimes were all at my disposal. Well, mine, and the over 10,000 attendees looking to plan weddings.

The Portland Bridal Show kicked off Saturday with three fashion shows to huge crowds of eager brides, bridesmaids, and mothers-of-the-brides. Sunday concluded with the final two fashion shows and lots of happy brides. Of course, with my baby girl engaged to be married this year, I was paying very close attention to all kinds of wedding things!
With a wonderful array of models, show attendees were able to see a stunning collection of options for everyone to wear for the big day. Needless to say, it made the decision making all the more difficult for me. So many choices!

As Mistress of Ceremonies for the fashion show I was lucky to be joined by a fabulous co-host in the form of one Ted Douglass from FM 105.1 The Buzz's popular afternoon program, The Daria, Mitch & Ted Show. Always a funny guy, Ted had a great tale to tell the crowd.

I was in dress-up heaven as Anna's Bridal Boutique provided me with two gorgeous dresses to wear during the shows. I felt like the belle of the ball as host, and mother of the bride. Of course with so many beautiful ladies in wedding gowns it was awe-inspiring to see them looking so fantastic in their gorgeous dresses.
|Yes, they are Seahawks fans!|

|Almost show time.|
In the end it was another resounding success for the Portland Bridal Show. Be expecting beautiful brides, handsome grooms, stylish bridesmaids, darling flower girls, and yes, fabulous mothers-of-the-brides to be showing up all over Oregon and Washington in the coming months!
|Moms need to look gorgeous, too!|
