     Earlier this month we held our 12th annual Divine Details Bridal Show at the Portuguese Club in Chatham. It is crazy to look back and think that I planned my first bridal show event 2 years ago. The Chatham Bridal Show will always hold a special place in my heart for many reasons.  This is where I discovered a passion I never imagined I would find before and learned a lot about myself. This particular bridal show is so special to me because I felt a level of success and accomplishment that I was so lucky and grateful to have the opportunity to do early on in my career. I will never forget this feeling and cannot wait to feel it again. I have been reading a lot of quotes lately about life, love and success and have come to realize that something as small as a well thought out sentence can change your entire perspective or give you the motivation you need to keep going. Here are some of my favourite quotes and images from our Chatham Bridal show!

For when I look back and remember that at one point this used to be my greatest accomplishment - "A great accomplishment shouldn't be the end of the road, just the starting point for the next leap forward."

For my best friends who willingly get up at 5 a.m. to come to my bridal shows with me - "As you learn who you are, you can better surround yourself with friends who make you a better person, and that sometimes only happens when you disassemble old relationships."


For my best friends who also put up with my worst mood when one of my shows ends up getting cancelled due to a snowstorm (They even helped me push my car out of the snow when I was too stubborn to turn around - Snowbank-1, Meg-0). - "A Friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future and accepts you just the way you are."

Wait, so the bridal show is actually cancelled today?
For my co-workers who volunteer their time and give up their Sunday's to help me - "Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful."

For my co-workers who have also become great friends of mine - "Behind every successful women is her best friend giving her crazy ideas."

For my vendors who inspire me to become a successful entrepreneur - "It's not who you are that holds you back, it's who you think you're not." 

For my vendors who are extremely talented - "You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think."

For all of the people who help bring the show together to make it successful (Can't do it alone!) - "Success happens when you go out of your comfort zone."

For a family that is always there for me and still support me - The Gordon's - "When everything goes to hell, the people who stand by you without flinching, they are your family."

For myself - "To start living the life she imagined she believed she could, so she did. And she replaced the fear of the unknown with curiosity."
