Wedding Dreams Bridal Show - January 12-13, 2013

Better late than never!  We wanted to thank each and every bride + groom that stopped by to chat with us.  There were so many!  It was great hearing details of wedding planning that are already underway and what is yet to come.

 It has been a busy week and a bit since the show but we still wanted to share our images of what the show was all about!

When brainstorming ideas for what our booth was going to look like, we received some inspiration from our good friends at Jodi Leigh Designs.  Thanks so much!  

And the process begins..... the first thing that we did was to get out our No. 2 pencils and sketch out our vision... and here is what we came up with!

I think we hit the nail right on with this one!  We were very happy with the final result.  For those of you who know us, you know that we love being behind the camera so we took as many photos as we could (when we had a few seconds!) of this whirlwind of a weekend!  

Enjoy everyone!!

The Wedding Dreams Bridal Show is this Weekend!

Wow!  It's amazing how time flies! 

We are wrapping up the details for setup at The Wedding Dreams Bridal Show and are getting so excited to meet all the Brides+Grooms that will come out this weekend. 

To be honest, that is the part of the show that I love.... talking with the couples and hearing their stories.  How they met.... their special proposal stories and of course what they have planned for their special day. 

All show attendants will be treated to a beautiful fashion show featuring Bridal Shops from the local area.  We love taking a moment to watch a part of it too!  What girl doesn't love looking at wedding gowns???  Lots of stunning designs to be seen! Here's sneak peek from the last Wedding Dreams Show! 

   

Right here in this area we have so many talented and amazing Wedding Professionals to choose from and a lot of them will be at the show this weekend for you to meet!  Including us!

There are over $25,000 in prizes to be won this weekend!  For those of you trying to convince your intended hubby to join you this.... well you can entice them with the words "Groom's Room".  A sanctuary where he can just hang out, have a drink at the bar, listen to some music, munch on some snacks and try his chances at the longest golf drive contest.  A little something for the bride and the groom this weekend!

Style & Elegance Wedding and Event Coordination will be at Booth # 167... be sure to drop by and chat with us!  We are all about peace of mind for your wedding planning process.  We LOVE what we do and would love to be a part of your wedding day.   

See you there!

Meeting Style Me Pretty's Editor-in-Chief!!!

Along with meeting some talented professionals in the wedding industry.... attending The Wedding Soiree last month was an opportunity for us to meet Style Me Pretty's Editor-in-Chief.... Abby Larson!!!!  

How excited were we!!!!  

Style Me Pretty


Let me tell you.

Abby is a such a warm-hearted and welcoming person that I felt like we were friends catching up when I had the chance to speak with her!

Style Me Pretty Style Me Pretty

Style Me Pretty is a top resource for a bride planning her wedding.  The tremendous amount of inspiration and ideas that this blog shares is fabulous!  For someone who lives, eats and breathes wedding like we do, Abby is more than happy to share insights into all-things-wedding!

Remember brides & grooms:  This is your special day... be inspired to make it one that you will forever remember!

The Original Wedding Soiree - Toronto, ON

What a weekend we had!  

We had the opportunity to attend The Original Wedding Soiree at the One King West Hotel in downtown Toronto.  

A fabulous event for us to catch up with some friends and to meet a lot of new ones!  We love networking in this industry!  It is such a pleasure to meet and chat with other wedding professionals that are just as passionate about the world of weddings as we are! 

Wedding Show

The theme for this "swanky" affair was Paris in the 1920's.  The architectural ambiance of One King West was perfect.  Guests were treated to a red carpet reception complete with champagne compliments of One King West Hotel and swag bags courtesy of TheRingbearer.  Wow!

Some of the wedding professionals that we caught up with included Impact Entertainment (DJ's), Mimmo & Co. (photographers), Paleterra Custom Correspondences (Stationary), Sara Baig Designs (Wedding Stylists & Coordinators), Love Paper and Ink Stationary and Katherine Lima Cakes.  Just to name a few! 

We also had the chance to attend the Couture Fashion Show featuring designers such as Claire Pettibone, Ines Di Santo and St. Pucchi.  The scene was fit for Paris in the 1920's.

Take a look at some of the photos we snapped at the fashion and let us know which one moves you!

Enjoy!

Wedding Dreams Bridal Show - Fall 2011

Now that things have calmed down a little, I have some time to blog about my involvement in the Wedding Dreams Bridal Show October 22-23 at Bingemans Conference Centre.  I absolutely loved meeting all the brides & grooms and am looking forward to being a part of their wedding planning!

This show is an opportunity for me to meet newly engaged couples and answer any questions they may have with regards to what I do as a Wedding & Event Planner.  I am there to offer peace of mind to those that are becoming overwhelmed planning their wedding!

I must say, after all the hard work preparing for the show itself, it's such an adrenalin rush when it's go time!

Here are some visuals from the show!  I got the chance to show off my creative side...which I LOVE to do!  

Hope you enjoy!

NY Bridal Market - Badgley Mischka

Wow!  There were so many designs at New York Bridal Market this year that is was incredibly difficult to choose favourites from the different designers!  

Profiled today are the beautiful creations of Mark Badgley & James Mischka.  Their sophisticated, simple style combined with gorgeous silohuettes & luxurious detail caters to the young modern bride.  

Take a peek at my picks from Badgley Mischka's Spring 2012 Bridal Collection!

They are absolutely gorgeous! (I've saved the best for last!)

This strapless ballgown is my favourite!  Very romantic and elegant


 

 

NY Bridal Market - Ines Di Santo

There were so many gorgeous designs that walked the runways in New York over the weekend it was hard to pick an absolute favourite.  

Instead I have chosen a few of each of the designers that really caught my eye.  

In particular designer Ines Di Santo's sophisticated and luxurious creations stood out.

Have a look at some of the 2012 collection!

~ enjoy!! ~

This one would be perfect for the dancing part of the celebrations!

 

 


 


NY Bridal Market - Kenneth Pool

~  Sexy.  Couture.  Glamorous  ~

All words to describe the Kenneth Pool 2012 Bridal Collection that graced the runway this past weekend!  

There was a mix of traditional ballgowns & mermaid silohuettes combined with intricate beading & feminine ruffles.  All while still achieving the signature sexy, glamorous, couture style Kenneth Pool is known for.

Take a peak at some of my faves from this collection!

~  enjoy! ~

NY Bridal Market - Reem Acra

I had the chance to watch the designs of Reem Acra stroll the runway streaming live courtesy of The Knot!  Wish I could have been there myself!

Romance, ruffles & embellishments was the theme of the collection labelled

"You can be a Princess too".

This designer's love for luxurious fabrics, unique textures and handmade elements shines through in her creations.  She aims to combine her appreciation of the traditional & classic with modern fashion.  

Bringing glamour & sophistication to your special moments, Reem Acra's European style allows you to be that "princess" on one of the happiest days of your life.  Here are some of the designs that debuted at Bridal Market!

~ enjoy! ~

Love the softness of this one..... 

This one was my favourite of the bunch.... the silohuette as well as the punch of colour is fabulous!
