This past Thursday, July 24, 2014, we hosted our 5th Bridal Open House! Featuring some pretty amazing vendors, they helped us welcome 40 brides and their friends and family to an evening of mingling, good food, drinks, music and door prizes. Our latest addition to the event was a panel of past clients giving guests the opportunity hear some honest wedding planning advice!
The best part about our bridal open houses is the mix of preferred vendors that we recommend all the time. Everyone who attended had a chance to talk to these vendors and see (or taste!) what they had to offer. The venue was “wedding ready” with unique furniture and decor provided by Industry Event Rentals, and floral arrangements by Fairytale Florist.
Drinks were provided by Liquid Catering, our in-house beverage provider. Guests had a choice of several wines, beer, and champagne. Cotton Rouge stopped by as well to chat with brides about bridal makeup for their special day.
Entertainment for the evening came in a few forms. Music was provided by Jeff Hayes with The Party Machine where he also demonstrated what he can do for dance floor monograms on a couple’s wedding day. ShutterBooth showed up with all the props and fun that anyone could imagine for a photo booth. This fun reception idea certainly gave a lot of clients something to smile about!
Last but definitely not least, these wonderful photos of our event were taken by Ryan & Alyssa of JAC Photography. They even helped capture our bridal panel on film! Big thanks to panelists Harold Hughes, Kathryn Hilton and Meghan Meier, all previous clients of ours. You can watch the panel discussion and listen to their stories here!
Stay tuned for our next Bridal Open House…
