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!
Is planning stressing you out? Are you thinking that it’s just too overwhelming to narrow down the vendors choices in the Oregon for your upcoming wedding? If planning isn’t your thing and you just want to have fun, kick back and enjoy your wedding day without lifting a finger than we have an amazing contest for you. You could win a wedding valued at over $20,000! Yes you read that correctly. All the vendors you need from a photographer to the venue to a caterer you could win in an awesome contest called,
“Lucky in Love – A Uniquely Portland Wedding Giveaway”
We are excited to announce that by attending The Art of Weddings Bridal Show on March 26th, 2014 bridal show engaged couples will have the first opportunity to sign up for this giveaway! That’s right, before the contest goes live online in April, engaged couples can enter at the bridal show. What’s even better than that you ask? If you purchase your tickets online your email will automatically be entered into the Luck in Love contest! You will be the first to get the nitty gritty details on how to win this amazing contest.
Below is a list of the fabulous local vendors who are a part of it. Many of them will be showcasing at the Art of Weddings Bridal show so you can meet them in person.

Sometimes in the craziness of fast-paced life and the stress of planning a wedding, we forget to connect in a meaningful way with the people who matter most to us. Sand Dune Publishing offers a convenient way to slow down and open the lines of communication with your soon to be husband or wife, your family and your friends. Plus, they make great, meaningful wedding gifts. Their “Between Me and You” keepsake journals ask 35-45 questions about your relationship, such as “What are your favorite memories of the time we first met?” and “Is there anything that you wish we would spend more time doing together?” There are different journals for different relationships, including romantic couples, parents, children, grandparents, siblings and friends. Each journal is meant to be given to someone else, and then returned once that person has written their response. When you exchange these journals with someone special to you, you never know what you might learn when you get it back. Whether you’re a bride and groom who would like to explore your relationship a little more before your big day or you’re looking for a meaningful gift for your bridesmaids, parents, etc., these journals are certain to bring you all a little closer.
If you buy a journal by Monday, August 20th, you’ll receive $2.00 off the $14.95 retail price, making each journal just $12.95. All you have to do to receive the discount is enter in the special code: AOW812 during checkout any time between now and August 20th. If you purchase two or more journals, shipping is free to anywhere in the US!
