Although it's been almost two years since I was a bride, I still enjoy attending wedding events and seeing all the pretty new trends and themes, which is why I was delighted to attend the Soolip Wedding event again this year. Held at Vibiana, the lush private event space in downtown, pretty was in abundance as wedding planners, bridal magazines, caterers, hotels, rentals, etc. welcomed brides and grooms-to-be and showed off their services.
I was captured by the beautiful tents and drapes around each booth so I went a little photo happy as I could just imagine them at a beautiful wedding. The first one below is designed by luxury tenting from RajTents.com and the other is from A Private Affair.
I then moved on to the table settings itself and particularly liked the elegance of La Tavola's fine linen rentals and the simplicity of Classic Party Rentals.
Moving on to food, I sampled an exquisite beet salad from Wolfgang Puck Catering and I don't even like beets, but this was amazing. Imagine saying your wedding was catered by Wolfgang Puck? Wow.
Speaking of food I recently learned that brides should avoid the following foods a few days before the wedding: broccoli, cauliflower, beans, onions, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, lettuce, high fiber cereals, chewing gum, soup, salt, peas and soda.
Also, on hand was Soolip paperie & press doing calligraphy live and displaying their beautiful invitations from all sorts of fabrics and featuring an array of pressed flowers and materials. They also specialize in vintage stamps to complement your invites, so if you're getting married on a ranch, they'll find old fashioned stamps with horses, etc.
