Wine + Wedding Talk

Our Meetup group is getting together again, and we'd love for you to join! 

This month we have giveaways! Hitch Switch, the company that helps you change your last name after you get married, have provided a gift certificate for their full service package (a $69 value) for a lucky couple. Trust me, you will be so thankful to have this prize when you begin the complicated process of filling out paperwork to change your name. They do the work for you and lay it all out in an easy to follow, step-by-step process. All attendees will be entered to win. 

Join us on Saturday, March 11th at 3:00pm for a glass of wine, and let's talk wedding planning! 

The meetup will take place at OS Winery: 5319 4th Ave S, Seattle, WA. There's a small parking lot and plenty of street parking in the Sodo neighborhood.

Wedding Planning Woes, Wins, + Wine (but this month it's beer)

We're hosting our second Wedding Planning Meetup in February. This is a great chance to get together with other local soon-to-be brides and grooms and chat about your experience with wedding planning. You can share and gather advice, stories, and other planning tidbits. I'll be "leading", although it's mostly just mingling, and am always happy to answer wedding related questions. These events are totally free, so come join us for a beer!

We'll be at Schooner Exact Brewery (3901 1st Ave S, Seattle, WA 98134 at 1:00pm on Saturday, February 18th. You can RSVP through the meet up site, or send me a text (206-981-8072) or email (candi@thriftyevents.net).

Wedding Planning Woes, Wins + Wine

Thanks to those that joined us for a glass of wine and friendly conversation about wedding planning! We're going to continue offering these events every other month. We'll take a break in December and will plan to meet again in January 2017. I'm sure there will be plenty of share after being home for the holidays :) Stay tuned for more details!


On Sunday, November 13th at OS Winery in the SoDo neighborhood, we're hosting a meetup for soon-to-be brides and grooms to discuss their ups and downs of wedding planning. Over time, I've realized there is a lack of outlets for people to vent or share about wedding planning without seeming like a bridezilla, or annoying their loved ones with too much wedding talk. I don't think there's such a thing as a bridezilla... wedding planning is just tough sometimes. But talking through the good, the bad, and the ugly with others that understand will definitely bring some joy back into it. A little wine always helps, too! So grab your partner, bff, or come alone, and let the wedding talk begin. All are welcome! Please join our group and RSVP through the Meetup website
