As you can see, everyone had a blast! Below are some testimonials that we just have to share:

-When asked how our bridal shows compares to other:

“You bridal shows offer a great selection  of wedding vendors without being too overwhelming in size. The Diamond Dash has become a signature item and is a brilliant idea!”  –Hotel Andaluz

“This is by far the best show” – Pennysmiths Paper

“Your show has more room and is better planned. You keep brides entertained the whole time!” – ABC Cake Shop

“You have a larger attendance” – A Cake Odyssey

“Very well put together” – Dream Factory Productions

“Organized!” – The Cleanery

An AMAZING bridal show

Our Great Diamond Dash on October 23 was a great success. The free seminar that was offered before the bridal show was packed! We had to bring in more chairs to accommodate all of the eager brides and grooms.  The diamond dash was a crowd pleaser once again. Five brides dove into a wedding cake in search of a beautiful diamond necklace valued at over $1,500.  I will be posting pictures and video footage soon! Don’t miss our upcoming bridal show- February 19, 2012 Great Diamond Dash Bridal Show at Hotel Albuquerque.
