Weddings Unveiled

Let’s talk about the Weddings Unveiled bridal showcase for a moment, shall we?  That totally fabulous + totally inspirational gathering of wedding experts happening at the Embarcadero Center on September 13th.  Think a one-stop wedding shop with everything you’ll ever need to make that dream day a reality. Can’t wait to attend?  All you have to do is RSVP.

From an awesome fashion show from Bridal Galleria to free yummies from Kara’s Cupcakes to live music from DJ Twin Spin and Musical Heart Strings, the Weddings Unveiled bridal showcase brings together the best and brightest in the wedding industry under one incredibly beautiful setting.  Imagine an entire day of talking shop with one wedding expert after another (hello beauty demos from Peninsula Beauty + Christina Choi Cosmetics and photo lessons from Dianne Jones) and you are sooo on the right track.  Which means that ultra-romantic day you’ve been imagining (including that candy bar with treats from SF Candy Bar and Godiva)? It’s right at your fingertips.  Not to mention that crazy cool rehearsal dinner and going away brunch that will leave all of your guests talking, Snap Fiesta photo booth included.

So what are you waiting for, loves?  Grab the one you love (+ your friends and family!) and start planning to attend the inspiration extravaganza known as the Weddings Unveiled bridal showcase.  The first 100 guests will receive a free gift (!) and copies of Today’s Bride and Here Comes The Guide.  And don’t forget about the FREE raffle with a variety of amazing prizes!  Your road to “I do” starts on September 13th!
