The Promotional Products Association International, which have over hundreds of vendors displaying all the latest and greatest items in the promotional industry. Every year, when I go I always bring a list of items that customers are particularly looking for as well as trying to keep my eye out for buzz worthy or popular items.
But enough self promotion, here is my list of the top promotional items.
Custom Knit Gloves for the Masses
Custom Knit gloves, Toques and Scarves. These items have been around for a few years, but the minimums used to be in the thousands, which made them unreachable for most brands. This year however you can order a fully custom knit scarf with a minimum 100 piece order. This makes a truly custom piece within reach for just about everyone. The neat thing about this product is that you can make it as awesome as you want by using up to 7 yarn colors for 1 flat fee and using new “HD” knitting the images can be more sophisticated and vibrant than your traditional soccer scarf.
Custom Light Bulb
Origaudio launched a line of LED light bulbs. The bulbs are a set of interlocking panels with 3 LED bulbs each. The bulb is printed 4 color process on every panel, so the branding choices are endless. The bulb is said to last 28 years and consumes less power than a regular bulb. They are also dimmable without requiring a dimmer switch; all you need to install it is a standard light socket. This unique promotional product was so cool that I even bought a sample at the show.
Wearable technology is a product I am really torn on. The retail market is dominated by Apple, Samsung and Fit Bit. Logo-branding those promotional items are not cheap at all, besides, they doesn’t leave much room for a distributor to make any money. Last year I didn’t see any fitness trackers at the show, but this year there were a bunch.
It is an electric hand warmer that is worn around your waist. You often see this type of promo product being worn by NFL quarter backs, but now it’s available and safe to use in industry. I tried one on at the show and would love to have this for the next time I’m shoveling my driveway on a blustery day. After all, they are useful and creative corporate gifts.
The Rag Bag
I was a little puzzled by this product at the very first beginning because it offers to much green potential! It is made with recycled t-shirts and it is made in the USA, plus it is designed to be reused after being a bag as a rag! They say one bag is 8 times more absorbent than a traditional paper towel and can be washed and reused over and over like a regular executive gifts dish rag. Therefore, the bag can be reused over and over or it can be recycled into a rag.
Hi my love! Today we are very grateful for sharing such beautiful work by photograper Leah Lombardi and the team. The focus of this shoot was about modern and luxurious bridal vibes, with beautiful bridal fashion supplied by Jessica Bennett and details brought together by Braw Creative. Now let’s appreciate for flawless beauty.
“The shoot includes good ideas for all seasons, the pinks work well for spring weddings, the dramatic hues work well for autumn and winter weddings while the pale hues and clean, minimal style works well for summer weddings. From an unconventional venue, unconventional bride, unconventional florals to unconventional decoration, we wanted to more experience and update our creativity. The mixture of soft pinks, touches of silver and dark burgundy contrasted the minimal, modern prom dresses under 100 and the white washed walls of the space. Dramatic colour and texture combinations ranging from nude to deep burgundy and ombré pink hues really stood out against the blank canvas of the venue.” Different colors has its own glamor in different venue with decorations.
“As for florals, SASSFLOWER used cymbidium orchids, deep burgundy cotinus, dried lunaria, amnesia roses and purple scabiosa in the oversized bridal bouquet. The smaller bridesmaid bouquet included pink cymbidium orchids, silver dusty miller, pampass Grass, lunaria and amnesia roses. The floral hoop, also known as the moongate, was entirely made up of pampass grass and purple cotinius with some orchid accents.”
“Jessica Bennett Bespoke provided gorgeous minimal dresses from The Stella Collection. The collection celebrates the spirit of today’s modern bride who is both stylish and sophisticated. The purpose of designing prom dress is offering perfect wedding gown for trend conscious women.
“The gowns used for the shoot matched the modern, clean and minimal aesthetic of the unique space perfectly, also helped to make your ideal bridal look on some point.”
“In order to complement the different textures and dramatic colour pairings, the style we used was simple and elegant with some slightly unexpected twists, exploring the textures of different materials. So here we used rich and deep claret shades to pair with blush pink from the colour palette and the off-white of the cotton rag paper, which could complement the stunning florals well.”
Finally, we promise the cheap wedding dresss 2019 of all the season you need can be charming, so don’t hesitate to choose from us with a variety of floral bridal dresses collection.

Miao start to have the idea of founding Aneberry after her own wedding experience. Like most brides, Miao wanted a beautiful wedding dress at an affordable price.
“I had a budget of £1000 but I still don’t have much selection, so many summer dresses were out of my price range, besides that, I’m not a standard size, I also need pay for alterations too. I did a lot of research and then started Aneberry with the purpose of helping brides find a gorgeous customized dress that doesn’t cost a fortune.”
“Since we’ve started, business has been going so well. We’ve received plenty of positive feedback from our customer, they are pleased with our concept and the design and quality of our dresses as well as the transparency of prices and the ease of booking appointments.

If you still think customized wedding dress is beyond your budget, you probably would change your opinion now.
As we all know, everything has its two sides. Purchasing a second hand wedding dress comes with its pros and cons. If you are ready for buying a second hand wedding dress you love with a part of the original cost, we recommend considering the pros and cons first, which could help you get more useful strategies also save more money and time.
First Pro: It’s been worn on what’s mean to be the happiest day
Normally, wedding dresses are designed to be worn on your big day which of your life’s the happiest and most important moment. They are made to make brides look and feel a million bucks. It seems a shame to keep such a beautiful dress in a dark wardrobe. Thus, It makes sense to breathe life back into the gorgeous dress and give it another whirl down the aisle. Maybe yours dress can be another bride’s dreaming gown. Sounds cool!
Con: It’s been worn before
While the reality is that second hand wedding dresses have been worn before. If you can’t stand the fact that someone who had worn the dress has already share their first kiss, first dance, and even possibly had their bridesmaid holding up the dress while they use the bathroom, perhaps a second hand wedding dress is not fit for you very well.
Second Pro: Endless opportunities
The great thing of viewing second hand best wedding dress is that you might end up falling deeply in love with a style, colour, or fit you never even considered before.
As we all know, purchasing a wedding dress is often a difficult task of the wedding plan. Not only does it add lots of decisions you must make for your wedding, bridal boutiques show the choice for you between lace, tulle, satin, silk, corsets, strapless, sweet-heart necklines and so on. Even if you can decide that, then you have to choose the veil lengths and styles! While it’s great that bridal boutiques can offer various sundresses options, some brides prefer to just choose something and be done with it.
Thus, purchasing a pre-loved wedding dress gives brides the opportunity to view a dress, decide if it’s fit for them, and purchase it. Even if the cheap dress isn’t completely your dream gown, you can choose to alter it to become the one you really love. That’s rather a big advantage for buyer.
One of the major cons of purchasing a pre-loved wedding dress is the restrictions of sizing. Wedding dresses are often made to fit a particular bride, so finding one that fits you properly is a difficult thing directly. Even if you find your dream wedding dress under 100 at a low price, you can’t make sure it is your right size.
So we suggest the best way is to buy a pre-loved wedding dress bigger than your size and you can alter it to what you want. However, the cost of alteration for your whole dress may end up your spending of a new dress.
Third Pro: Doors open to designer brands
Another advantage for purchasing a pre-loved wedding dress 2019 is that it opens the doors to designer brands. While everyone eager to wear a gorgeous designer wedding dress, some may have no ways or think it unnecessary. Pre-loved listings not only allow brides to purchase their dream designer gown at a big discount of its original cost, but also recoup some money for original owner which can put it toward a holiday or on their mortgage. For both of them, it’s a win way.
Con: It might not be your dream wedding dress
While a wedding dress may be someone’s dream dress, it may not be yours. No matter how long you view pre-loved wedding dress listings, we are not sure you will get the one that you fall head over heels in love with. That’s all right as well.
You can click here to shop second hand cheap wedding dresses at a big discount, we promise it’s the best price with good quality in the dress market.

To make an incredible beachfront ceremony, Megan chose something simple, unadorned also very pretty. She wore her white strapless silk chiffon gown designed by Armani Prive, which with no jewellery but had a gorgeously large veil flowing in the sea-breeze. Love vows, beautiful sand, no shoes.
Let’s put our eyes on this incredible woman! Kate has a classic style, which emulates Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn, and is a wonderful example for us to go for. Her wedding dress was designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, using pieces of hand-cut English lace and French Chantilly lace exquisitely. She looks so elegant and glamorous in that dress.
Salma’s gown had a beaded bodice and full skirt and was designed by Nicolas Ghesquiere for Balenciaga. We love her hair all pulled back, so that the beauty of her beaming smile is her greatest asset on her big day.
With the style of vintage glamour and punk revolutionary, pop princess Gwen Stefani managed this look again incredibly on her wedding day. Her cheap wedding dress was traditional white from the top to toe, but dip-dyed a gorgeous pink by the bottom of the dress, which made from silk faille. Magnificent!
When she married, the star of Phantom wore an off the shoulder Carolina Herrera gown. Her dress was a chic flowing ivory, with a delicate embroidered belt at the waist. She wore no neck decorations and simple earrings, just show off a bride with the natural beauty of a woman in love.
With the gold sequins and pearls trickling down the gown, like a lovely puddle at the bottom, this bias-cut cheap lace dress clung to her frame and just fell to the floor stunningly. Kate’s Galliano gown could have been a masterpiece straight out of the Gatsby era, especially with vintage-inspired.

However, neutrals are so last year you found here.

Taking a beautiful and holy wedding is every girl’s dream. Some brides have got ready for their weddings since they were little girls while others have no idea about their dress. No matter what your experience in bridal wear, don’t let these important questions trouble you while shopping for your dream dress! Here are some useful considerations for your reference.
What kind of dress really fit for my body type?
Before go to the bridal shop, you should collect a few long wedding dress silhouettes, wedding dress designers, and styles you like for reference, however, you can find something nice with the help of sales associate.
Can I receive my gown for my wedding timely?
Generally, most brides shop for gowns about 6-9 months before their wedding. Actually, we recommend starting about one year ago, so that we have plenty of time to deal with the delivery and alterations. No matter your request of time, you can ask specific ways with quicker or longer delivery windows to satisfy your demand.
What is the detail of alterations process?
Firstly you should ask the retailer if they offer in-house alterations or if they recommend a professional seamstress. Make sure at least two fitting plans for alterations, but the changes should be based on your body type, dress style, and requests for customization. Finally, don’t forget to consider the cost of alterations for your overall dress budget.
Are there any additional fees included?
If you don’t pick up the gown on time, a rush charge for a short wear-date, or a storage fee should be considered in your plan.
If the dress will be still available in a few weeks or months?
Sometimes wedding sundresses has gone off the market without any warning, so many boutiques offer an incentive to purchase a gown on your first visit. Please don’t let your lovely dress slip away, and you should catch it soon if you decided.
What is my range of motion in this dress?
Wedding dresses are made with expensive and delicate materials, which can limit your range of motion. Can you raise your arms in a dress? Does the skirt feel heavy? Will the fabric breathe well for your season and venue? For all of these factors you should to consider carefully so make sure that you can enjoy what the wedding you want.
What size should I order?
Usually, white wedding dress sizes are different from street sizes, it’s better for you to predict weight fluctuations before the big day. And your sales associate will help you to find your best size finally. Just relax and keep your good figure.
What kind of undergarments will fit me well with this style?
For your big day, different type of dress(like a plunging V-neckline or illusion lace back) decides different undergarments you should wear. Many bridal shops have an in-house selection of shapewear and undergarments to complement your gown, making your wedding is absolutely perfect and flattering!
Can I change my mind about a specific style?
Since the summer wedding dress is an important and special made-to-order purchase, so many retailers do not allow you to change your mind randomly. It’s necessary for you to completely understand your boutique’s cancellation policy before you sign your name and make the payment. If you are regretting your purchase, spending time to collect good resource for yourself before payment, then you can get a satisfied and nice shopping for your wedding dress.
What we admire for this real wedding is its combination of briefness and charm. Ashley combined white floral with her crystal-embellished Lisette gown, giving her rustic outdoor occasion an air of polish and sophistication. And the most important thing is that this princess wedding summer dress features the great amount of sparkle and volume for golden-hour appearance!
After going to about five different bridal shops and spending countless hours on The Knot Look Book looking at what feels like a million dresses, I finally found a cute bridal shop, Bellissima Bride, in Deerfield Beach, FL that seemed to have many the designers that I was gravitating toward. I tried on about 30 dresses that day and although the Maggie Sottero Lisette was not one of my choices on the look book app, I ended up trying it on and absolutely fell in love. I tried a couple more on after and kept saying that nothing was as a good as that dress. The day of the wedding I got so many compliments on the best evening dress!
Describe your wedding in one word.
What was your best part of the dress?
Everything, but if I had to choose it would be the illusion top.
Did your wedding have a topic?
What suggestions do you have for other brides?
Don’t sweat the small stuff that you think that everyone cares about, because you are the only one that will notice.

So the important is, what dress code is fit for your every holiday gatherings? Here we recommend six types of winter parties match with different style of evening dresses for your reference.
Type 1: It is forbid to wear closely bare for your annual office party. Instead of plunging necklines, we recommend you choose outfits with slight peeks of skin attached elegant decorations , like this type of sequin cold shoulder cocktail dress. This would make you look modest and polite in the bash, right?
Type 2: It’s charming to take a big cozy sweater for an at-home gathering. But dressing up is the reason for this season, year?

You’ll look super graceful while your prom dresses on with silver accessories as you exchange presents with your intimate.
Type 3: Usually a charity gala calls for a floor-length dress that brings big wow whether you’re part of an organization or land an invitation through your company. Making it worth savoring in a tiered ball wedding dress with fashionable touches of velvet, you are the only princess in the party.
Type 4: The black tie wedding was just near to you not mixed with other holidays while you was invited months ago . You can image what to wear with this berry-hued evening dress bearing fashionable ruffles and a flattering v-neckline. Would you like to save the last dance for us please?

From the Vegas strip to a more local evening gathering, you can see a party in this brilliant holiday summer dress everywhere. The fitted shape make curves noticeable while smooth illusion panels keep things hidden, all feels amazing.
Type 6: A festive gathering with beautiful girls usually tends to feminine, flirty style no matter it’s an anniversary celebration or a spontaneous get-together. A low-cut neckline and flare shape, with a layered necklace, red lips, Icing on the cake, consist a perfect night to show off your beauty.
