Local brides-to-be – this is one of those events you are going to want to mark on your calendars!
Who says wedding planning can’t be fun? Sometimes brides just need a night out with the girls! The Fraser Valley Wedding Festival on October 17 offers a fun and interactive perspective on wedding planning with live music and delicious dips into chocolate fondue in the complimentary bridal tearoom.
“This is our seventh festival and we are making it a girls’ night out,” says Tamara O’Brien, the event producer. “Sip on a glass of wine, go shopping, and enter to win prizes. The only rule is have fun!”
The festival’s one-of-a-kind décor showcase welcomes brides into entirely decorated rooms, each designed in a spectacular wedding décor theme with incredible floral arrangements, table dressings, and hot new colour schemes.
You can shop until you drop in the “matrimonial mall” where experts at the mini storefronts help plan your big day. Chat with wedding specialists,watch demonstrations, eat cake, or try out a new beauty product.
“We pride ourselves in doing things a little bit differently than at the average wedding fair,” says Tamara, who is passionate that brides should have an interactive way to plan a wedding. “New this year, brides can now shop and purchase their wedding gown at the show. We’ll also be having our very own Top Chef-like cake-off!”
After all the excitement, sit down with your girlfriends and laugh until you cry in the complimentary bridal tea room where you can indulge until you bulge over the selection of cakes, cupcakes, wine, and chocolate fountain.
The festival takes place on Monday, October 17, 2011, 4-8pm at The Coast Hotel & Convention Centre in Langley. Admission is $5 and tickets are available at the door.
The organizers at the Fraser Valley Wedding Festival have put together a fun prize for one lucky local bride and three of her friends (attendants, Moms, sisters, aunts…).
