It invites couples and families to attend as a way to cast their votes and give recognition to the many vendors that worked to make their special day all that is was and more. It’s a way for them to say thank you. It’s also a great opportunity to network and socialize where vendors can talk to others throughout the industry and even collaborate their efforts for growing and improving.
