Editorial January 2016
Happy New Year! We hope you had a festive and merry holiday with friends and family.
Now that itâ€™s January once again, we thought it appropriate to focus on finance! Exciting, right?

Unfortunately, we all have to pay our taxes, and we all have to think about securing our financial futures.

Now that 2016 is upon us, we are busy planning for our first three MyShadi Bridal Expos of the year. First up will be our show in Atlanta on Sunday, March 20, at the Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel. We are happy to announce that we will also host a Destination Wedding Pavilion at this Expo. The next two shows will be in Ft. Lauderdale at the Bonaventure Resort & Spa on Sunday, April 3, and in Tampa at Innisbrook Golf & Spa Resort. Be sure to register online (myshadibridalexpo.com) to attend, and as always, parking and admission are free!
