Last month I attended the launch of The Wedding Collective in Brisbane, an event that i have mixed feelings about. While the displays by the suppliers were exciting and dazzling, the organization of the night was nothing short of frustrating. I guess arriving and being made to line-up like cattle, in the cold, on a mega-step driveway (in 5 inch heels mind you!) just to check in, was not a good start.

Once checked in we were once again held like cattle, for an hour and a half, in a room with only one display to look at. Everyone stood around wondering what was going on and why the organizers were not opening the sheer curtains for us to see what we had come for. Finally something started to happen... oh my goodness... speeches! Can you bear it!... By this time myself and the group of ladies i had met were completely 'over it'. It was two hours into the event and all we'd seen was 1 display, a band and the organizers swanning around ensuring that all of the local social-scene photographers had taken a photo of themselves.
Finally the curtains were opened and what we saw was amazing!! The rooms on display were very impressive. Each and everyone of them had a wow-factor. I couldn't pick my favourite, they were all so fabulous (as you can see by the photos below). Apparently there was a fashion parade and giveaways later in the night, but after already waiting around for so long, i left and went home to enjoy the rest of the night with my boyfriend. The suppliers did an amazing job... the organizers, not so good :(
