Fabulous Wedding Facts

Fabulous Wedding Facts

When we were in college studying fine art we had the opportunity to take a trip over to London and earn some credits for a painting class. I was so excited I got to go, I have always had a love for the UK. In an another life I envisioned myself living a british life and having their witty accent. So you know I was thrilled to have Berketex Bride share info on what we spend and what happens at weddings! Enjoy.

Planning a wedding can be amazing fun, but also stressful. . . there is just so much to think about and do.

If you are looking for inspiration, a wedding show is a great place to start, from bridal dresses to favours, table decorations and floral displays, there is plenty of exhibition stands for you to take ideas from and adapt for your big day.

One of the most important things to agree (apart from the budget, of course) is the invitation list – just how many people do you want to come and share your big day.

UK bridal dress company, Berketex Bride, has done some research into some fun and fabulous facts about tying the knot. It discovered that the average number of guests who attend a wedding is 189!

The Art of Wedding’s 10th Anniversary Bridal Showcase

The Art of Wedding's 10th Anniversary Bridal Showcase

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!

Stunning Wedding Gowns

Stunning Wedding Gowns

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.
