Kathy Baxley-Stewart, Owner and Producer of The Charleston Bridal Show & Association. We produce 2 bridal shows per year at the Gaillard Center in Downtown Charleston. Our shows bring in hundreds of brides and grooms along with their wedding parties and families. We showcase Charleston’s most professional wedding vendors at these spectacular events. Brides and Grooms are able to talk with and choose many of their wedding vendors all under one roof in one day. Our Charleston Bridal Association provides Networking Events all throughout the year for our vendors who are members to meet and make valuable connections for their businesses.
Today we’re joined by Kathy Baxley-Stewart of The Charleston Bridal Show. Kathy is going to give us a behind the scenes peak of the show and share her experience in putting a bridal show together! Enjoy:
I’m Kathy Baxley-Stewart. I have owned and produced The Charleston Bridal Show since 2007. I actually came to own this business sort of on a fluke, as I like to say. I previously was the Event and Teaching Ministries Coordinator for a large church here in Charleston. I organized many meetings, picnics, bbq’s, retreats, etc. as well as secured the curriculum for the adult Sunday School classes of the church. Starting to feel as though I was being called to do something more, I had a friend that mentioned to me that she had seen a wedding business listed in the local newspaper that was for sale.
