Not-So-Big Wedding Boutique & Challenge

So, I'm headed to the Not-So-Big Wedding Boutique & Challenge tomorrow with the family.  It is a wedding expo that focuses on weddings with a small budget (under 15K).  Which I think is great, because our wedding budget is not big at all.

The good thing is that representatives from one of the parks in MD (well, a few of them) that we are considering for our ceremony will be there.  Plus the event will be held at Rockville Manor, a facility that I like so it will be good to see it up close and personal, finally.

Here's my concern.  One of the reasons that I produce Say I Do! LGBT Wedding Expo is because most wedding shows assume a man-woman couple. That's the target audience and the assumption of a bride and groom is the norm. So as a non-traditional couple, you never know how you will be received.  So this will be interesting, to say the least.  It's always an interesting reaction with the person I am speaking to learns that I am marrying her not him...

Needless, to say I am hoping for the best but prepared for the worst.  But as I always say, if someone has a problem with me, it's entirely theirs!


  1. Hi Tammy,
    I am the producer of the Not-So-Big and saw your posting. I just want to assure you that Montgomery Parks welcomes all couples. And, in planning, this event, I've been very sensitive to the fact that we are talking to traditional and non-traditional couples. Hope to see you here (in a few hours)!

  2. Hi Laura-

    Thanks for commenting! We were in attendance. It was a very well coordinated event, congrats on a job well done!
