    I used to go with my mom, sister and sister-in-law every year but we haven't been able to make it the last few years. We would love to go this year! My favorite parts are the food samples from the local vendors and shopping for a new purse.

    My bff and I really look forward to going to this event every year. We just love looking at all the booths and seeing what is new!

    I would love to see (and maybe even meet) Randy Fenoli. I'm a huge fan of "Say Yes to the Dress"!! I have never been to the SWS and just to go would be an experience in itself!
