Wedding 101, Thistle Farms, Wedding Favors, Lavender

The description from Thistle Farms website is stated so perfectly I just had to use it:

Thistle Farms is a  non-profit business that is operated by the women of Magdalene.

Magdalene is a two-year residential community founded in Nashville Tennessee in 1997 for women with a history of prostitution and drug addiction. Magdalene was founded not just to help a sub-culture of women, but to help change the culture itself. We stand in solidarity with women who are recovering from sexual abuse, violence, and life on the streets, and who have paid dearly for a culture that buys and sells women like commodities.  At no cost, we offer women a safe, disciplined, and compassionate community for two years, paid for by the gifts we receive from individuals and private grants. Magdalene stands as a witness to the truth that in the end, love is more powerful than all the forces that drive women to the streets.

By hand, the women create natural bath and body products that are as kind to the environment as they are to the body. All sales proceeds go back into the program.

Through Thistle Farms, the women of Magdalene gain much needed job skills, and learn responsibility and cooperation. Into every product goes the belief that freedom starts with healing, and love can change lives. Our dream is that people will come to see Thistle Farms as a humble but powerful business  synonymous with women’s freedom.”

This program has helped so many women get back on track and the products are phenomenal.  Wedding 101 is a proud Thistle Farms retail location. We carry candles, summer and winter survival kits, lavender sachets, bath teas, and spa kits.  Please help us support this wonderful business and enjoy some of the amazing products while you help women in need.

As you all know by now August 22nd is our first ever Wedding 101 Bridal Expo. One of the things that makes this show so very unique is that even your grooms will want to be here. We are setting up a special room just for your boys at Saffire. They can sit back and relax while you find out about all of our amazing wedding experts. So what all can the boys look forward to in this “Groom’s Room” you may wonder?

Let’s start off with the way to any man’s heart… food. Saffire will be serving tasty bites for your boys to enjoy. If there is one way to get a boy out of the house and to come to a Bridal Expo, it’s food.

While your boys are enjoying some tasty bites, they can sit back and enjoy watching their favorite golfer tee off during the Wyndham Championship or seeing some of the major leagues finest hit it out of the park.

Grooms Room, Wii

If your man isn’t really into golf and baseball but he still has a competitive side, he can take on some of the other grooms enjoying our Groom’s Room on the Wii. We will have the Wii all set up and ready for your boy to challenge the other grooms on their Wii skills. Let’s see which groom will be the Wii champion.

Last but certainly not least your groom can enjoy Saffire’s cash bar for a nice, relaxing, and completely unique bridal show experience.

We will totally understand if these treats ruins all other bridal shows for your grooms but we think it is important for your groom to be just as happy about a bridal show as you are. Don’t forget your tickets available on our website or at the door. We can’t wait to see you here!

As promised here are the other vendors we loved at the Weddings The Bridal Show!

Branching Out:

Vicki had the most amazing set up. The burlap canopy can be rented for your event and incorporated to your decor! I love the rustic feel of her booth and those colors were just amazing.

Blue Nova:
This booth was so big, I had to get it in two shots so please disregard the lighting change from side to side. This draping is so beautiful. I love the orange and pink lights washing color on the backdrop.

Crumb de la Crumb:

They had the most sparkling cakes. The booth was fun and funky and the cake was moist with a sweet icing.

The Enchanted Florist

These flowers were beautiful. Look at all those red roses!

Cakes by Rebecca:

I love the Peacock cake and the one with the quote on the center tier! Her cake was light and fluffy with a sweet icing.

Signature Cakes:

These cakes were beautiful as well. The cake was moist with a icing that was light and creamy almost like whipped cream!

I hope you have enjoyed our coverage of the Weddings The Bridal Show! Don’t forget that Wedding 101 will be hosting our very own bridal show on August 22nd with a designer wedding gown auction to benefit The Fairy Godmother Project! Purchase tickets on our events page or at the door!
