Washington Bridal Expo: Wedding Planning has Never Been Easier

I love to multitask (sometimes successfully, sometimes not), and one of my other jobs is being the Creative Director at St. Louis Perfect Wedding Guide. It is a complimentary pocket-size guide, designed to help every bride choose with ease the wedding professionals that would help make her wedding a dream come true. Apart from online and printed advertising, we love to create opportunities for the brides to meet our vendors face to face. So this is how our 1st Washington Expo at the Knights of Columbus came to be…

Have you picked up your complimentary copy of the St. Louis Perfect Wedding Guide yet? In Washington, you can find it at I.B. Nuts and Fruit Too, The Art Center, Hillermann Nursery and Florist, Gary Lucy Gallery, and Wedding Creations.

St. Louis Perfect Wedding Guide puts eight Bridal Shows a year in St. Loius and the Metro East area. However, since we reside in Washington, we decided we need to do a local show. The response from the vendors was overwhelming, and the brides were eagerly awaiting to register and get their swag bags. The Knights of Columbus have never had so much fun on a Friday 13th night!

Brooke, from Brooke G Images, poses for a photo in front of her beautifully designed booth. A wedding photographer based in Sullivan, Brooke visits Washington often for outdoor photo shoots and weddings. Needless to say, we love her bubbly personality and her amazing work!

The wonderful Beleta Pierce with Swiss Just Plus knows how to make your pre-wedding stress go away! Her products, infused with natural essential oils, help release the tension and put a smile on your face. I love having spa parties with Beleta!

Two flowers among flowers: Julie and Sandi from Hillermann Nursery and Florist know how to have fun! They can make beautiful bouquets for your wedding and they also have a wonderful selection of gifts!

I loved this bouquet from Hillermann’s!

Mind Body & Spirit were giving massages on the spot. Whether you are a bride or not, you can’t say no to that!

The talented Cara Knox has over 600 wedding invitation designs. Custom-made with lots of care and love.

Don’t you love Hawthorne Inn’s tropical display? They served amazing lunch for our vendors, and also catered to the brides. Next to them, Kim and Debbie from the Fudge Shoppe, were giving away samples of their delicious wedding cakes!

Anton Burger, from Burger Park Limo, not only has a nice ride, but also a red carpet as a finishing touch. Arrive for your wedding in style!

Jane, from the Art Center, busy talking to future brides. With their creative framing and unique designs, the Art Center can turn your wedding photos into an elegant masterpiece you can display in your home.

Our friends from GoLuv Travel, getting into the groove! GoLuv give away a Honeymoon Vacation at every St. Louis Perfect Wedding Guide show! They also know how to have fun. Do it with GoLuv! Your honeymoon, of course, what did you think? 😉

Do you know these amazing girls? Trashy Roots Salon styled the hair of all the models in the Fashion Show. They also gave complimentary hair trials to some of the future brides.

The adorable Christine Newton in action! She knows how to use make-up secrets to enhance your natural beauty and make you look like a diva!

A bridal show would not be complete without some wedding fashions! Mimi’s Bridal from Sullivan had a wonderful selection of gorgeous dresses, and beautiful models who walked them down the runway. Chris from Big Daddy Sound kept the mood upbeat!

Another gorgeous Mimi’s gown! Flowers from Hillermann’s!

The moment everyone impatiently awaited: who is going to win the dream honeymoon from GoLuv? Kristy draws the name of the lucky bride!

Cynthia Beth, the lucky bride who just won a Honeymoon in Mexico from GoLuv! A grand finale to the St. Louis Perfect Wedding Guide 1st Washington Bridal Expo. We can’t wait to do it again next year!
