Update: After removing 1 pingback and 1 non-entry comment, congratulations to entry 7, Kate for winning this giveaway.
As I look ahead to 2014, I can’t believe that Scott and I will celebrate not just our fifth wedding anniversary this year, but also an entire decade together. A decade?!? Where did all of that time go? On top of that, we’re traveling to DC in a few weeks for Scott’s sister’s wedding.
With all of this going on, I’ve been thinking a lot about our wedding. At the time, I thought it was a good idea to DIY our invitations, centerpieces, favors, and more. It was a lot of fun and allowed us to put a personal touch on things, but these were the pre-Pinterest and Etsy days and it wasn’t easy.
Fortunately, today’s bride has all of these tools at her disposal, as well as events like Something White’s Boutique Bridal Bazaar.
On January 12 from noon til 4pm, the beautiful Tudor Arms Hotel will host off-the-beaten-path vendors, decor and fashions for Cleveland couples looking to add a unique, avant-garde twist to their wedding.
This is Boutique Bridal Bazaar’s third year and joining the mix are vendors who can provide couples with poptails (popsicle + cocktail), locally sourced catering, gourmet coffee bars, custom perfumes, and alcoholic cupcakes.
Support local businesses and caterers like L’Nique Specialty Linen, Dante Lucci Salon, Chill Pop, Cleveland Boudoir, DeBoe Studio: Weddings & Parties, Sow Food, and Spice of Life Catering.
There will also be tastings and the ability to purchase locally handmade goods in the “Etsy Aisle.” The Something White fashion show will not only feature models wearing the boutique’s newest gowns, but also past Something White brides taking one more walk down the “aisle” in their wedding gown.
I know all of that browsing would tire me out so attendees can relax in an inspirational lounge area and treat themselves to a fresh donut buffet.
Even if you’re not getting married, you’ll find plenty of inspiration for the next party you throw. We’ve used L’Nique for our linens at Jump Back Ball, and Dante Lucci is my go-to salon for all special occasions.
Tickets cost only $10 and can be purchased online ($15 at the door).
I’m also giving away a pair of tickets to the event. How to enter: Do one, some, or all five of the entries. A separate comment is needed for each.
