Pampered Chef: Theme Show Bridal shower - No HWC allowed??? HELP!

    Can anyone tell me why my guests at my bridal shower yesterday are not being allowed (by P3) to order any HWC products?? Is it because they are "guest" items, and technically all items ordered as a "bridal shower" are supposed to be for the bride??? If that is true (the part about only ordering items for the bride if it is a shower), I had no idea until I just thought of that right now!

    And if so, is there any reason for me to not just change the show type from bridal to a regular cooking show? As far as I can see the host benefits are alll the same...

    TIA...

    I believe the benefits are the same. I have placed personal orders for guests under wedding shower....so it shouldn't be an issue. I'm assuming you verified the start and stop time to be May.....also, it could be a burp in P3....maybe close and re-open the program?

    check the show date.. it could have the previous month, that will keep you from entering the HWC items on P3. Had that problem last year.. :)

    Checked the show date - it is correct, dated as 5/17 (yesterday), but was set up in April... Not that that should make a difference...

    Closed and opened P3 just in case, still is "red flagging" those guests, just checked it, and the error meassge is "item 2837 cannot be used for the Wedding Shower type".

    How crazy is that??? I can only assume that (like I said before) because those are technically "guest specials" they don't want guests making purchases for themselves, only for the bride. But WHY on earth would they do that???

    So, is there any reason for me to just switch the show type to a regular cooking show?

    Wow, that's ridiculous! No reason not too....only changes show types, which is beneficial for analyzing your biz...so not a big deal. The benefits are the same! = )

    Where are you getting that item number? The HWC items are "GR" numbers.

    OK, so I got that number from doing a "look up" (clicking on the little magnifying glass next to the item # and choosing the "guest special" catagory, then choosing the recipe collection).

    BUT... I just went and did the exact thing over again, and it is giving the GR numbers now, and it is not flagging them any more.

    Thanks Linda, I don't know if I would have caught that!

    It took me a while to figure this one out too! The numbers are on the May Guest Specials flier that I printed out from cc and passed out to my guest to look over. Not sure why HO didn't put the GR ones on it instead. :confused: I'm sure it's created confusion for other consultants to!
