We are so excited for the tenth annual Art of Weddings Bridal Show! We started with a vision on a napkin while chatting with a friend at a coffee shop and it has grown ever since. The goal was and has always been to keep the event relaxed, fun and non-pressured. We think you should be able to meet and talk to vendors without feeling like you have to book them on site. Of course you can if you fall in love but the goal is for your and your fiance to celebrate your engagement in a stylish atmosphere.
If you haven’t already, now is the time to reserve your tickets online. Get a discounted price of only $8 each when you enter the code: PCS online and you will also be automatically entered for the opportunity to win a whole wedding from the Lucky in Love contest (valued at over $20,000). Otherwise get them at the door for $15 each.
We always love having it at the modern and beautiful Gerding Theater at the Armory in downtown Portland. Parking is on street and in nearby lots. Coat check on hand in case it’s a rainy evening.
View stunning photography, sample culinary delights, snack on a sweet cupcake and hop in a photo booth for some silly memories. Stay around for a featured fashion show by local fashion designer Michelle DeCourcy and walk away with ideas to plan your perfect wedding day! See you this Wednesday evening from 6-9pm!
Your wedding date is getting closer and closer. As the maid of honor why not host a Pure Romance Party for the bride to be? These fun and tasteful bachelorette parties are a great way to start the evening off before heading out on the town. Have all the girls over at your home, break out the bubbly and some savory appetizers and let the consultant show you all the products available!
So what can you expect from hosting a party? Pure Romance breaks it down as follows:
“A trained consultant will come to your house and provide a night of unforgettable fun for you and your girlfriends. From innovative ways to spice up your relationship to sexual health information you wished you had learned a long time ago, a Pure Romance party is anything but typical. Unlike shopping in a store or online, your guests will learn how each product works and how it can enhance your most intimate moments. The part? Ordering is confidential so your guests can ask questions and shop in private.”
They have a wide variety of products from beauty to massage oils to toys and games to keep the fire burning. Come meet them in person and book your next party at The Art of Weddings Bridal Show on March 26th, 2014.
Choosing your wedding gown. To me this one of the most exciting parts of the planning process. How do you want to look on your wedding day? Modern, elegant, sweet or over -the- top stunning? Of course you want to feel comfortable in whatever you are wearing and it’s important to try on a variety of gowns and designers before you choose the final one. We all have different body shapes and certain gowns will look better on certain shapes. By going to a salon or designer they can help you with the fitting process.

The stunning is something you just toss around daily. For something to be stunning it needs to stand out with it’s beauty being the main factor. People can be stunning, such as Angelia Jolie in a cocktail gown on the red carpet. Her natural beauty is amplified with hair, make-up, jewelry and of course the perfect gown. Then there are buildings, an amazing prepared meal, a pair of high heels that you can’t take your eyes off. Whatever it is to you, you are drawn to it’s beauty and design. We discovered the following stunning wedding gowns on Pronovias’ website.
We are going to focus on the 2014 Elie by Elie Saab Collection. These gowns are elegant, sexy and classic. The detail is amazing and they are certainly statement gowns. Here are few we think are stunning! View the all online at Pronovias.
