Bridal Fairs- To attend, or not to attend?

In an attempt to promote my business even more, I signed up to do two bridal fairs in January and February.  I heard mixed reviews from other florists on whether they got any business from the fairs or not, but I thought, what the heck, might as well try!

The first one was located in the San Jose area.  I used bright pink and purple anemone's, white Casablanca lilies, Stargazer lilies, pink David Austen garden roses, pink and cream spray roses, lisianthus, orchids and red roses to create 3 very different bouquets, a sweet heart table design, two tall centerpieces and a low centerpiece.  Take a look:

At the second fair, located at the beautiful Fox Theatre in Redwood City, I decided to try something a little different.  Instead of just doing bouquets, I matched each bouquet up with a centerpiece and created a vignette.  I used red roses, white hydrangea, eggplant purple calla lilies, peach roses, succulents, purple and pink lisianthus, jasmine, amaranthus and other greens.  I got a lot more of a response from this set up, then the last!  Enjoy the photos!

Which was your favorite design out of all these?
