Hi Everyone,
I'm new to the site. My sister is a cake decorator out of Huntsville, Tx and recommended this site. She said there are a lot of very knowledgeable people here ! I am starting an online wedding favor business and need some help. I know all the basics of starting a business online but don't have a clue about the wedding industry. Although I have been doing a lot research about it for the last couple of weeks there is still a lot I don't know. I am trying to find trade shows of the merchants that sell the favors to online stores and brick and mortar stores at wholesale prices. I have found some online but I want to go to a show to actually touch what I am buying. Does anyone know the name these trade shows go by? I am also looking for ideas on a name for the business. I'm horrible at naming things, any ideas? I'm mainly going to sell wedding favors but will also sell birthday and graduation favors, etc.
I LOVE THIS SITE, WHAT BEAUTIFUL CAKES!!
Kim
