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!
With all the crazy west coast weather we have been having I’m sure I’m not the only one thinking about spring time, sunshine and flowers popping up from the wet ground. With spring time comes fresh and fun colors and some fun ideas for your wedding decor. The light feeling of soft pastels is so inviting and romantic for a wedding day palette. You can choose to go soft and stick to mainly pale whites, creams and pinks or mix a variety of tones like mint green with a blushing pink. Have fun with it and let your style shine through, just like the sun shining through the rain clouds on a spring day!
Find your inspiration in the following images! Be sure to come to our spring Bridal Showcase happening Wednesday, March 26th, 2014 at the Gerding Theater at Portland Center Stage. There are a few comp tickets still available!
With the holiday season in full swing, the excitement of a new year is quickly approaching. We love the rich colors and elements of shine during this time of the year. It’s so much fun to put on some extra sparkly jewelry or a glittery top while celebrating the holidays. Why not add that element of sparkle to your wedding day? Glam it up easily with a fabulous glitter covered table cloth. It adds instant shine and puts everyone in the mood to celebrate and party! How about a just married sign covered in silver glitter or enhance your invitations with gold sparkles. There are so many ways you can add a bit of sparkle to your wedding day. Whether it’s in tones of gold or silver, you can’t go wrong with this elegant and fun texture. These sparkly ideas don’t have to be saved just for winter weddings, they would also look amazing anytime of the year! Check out of the fav’s that we found and wanted to share with you. Enjoy and Happy Holidays to all of you!
Silver and white are the perfect combo for this elegant table setting. The table cloth dresses up the the event and all the other decor stays simple.
Create your own Just Married sign. Cut holes first before adding the glitter. Head to your local craft store and find thick cardboard letters. Use a craft glue and then go crazy with the glitter! Add the sign to the back of your chairs at the reception for a little extra bling!
Stray away from the typical silver and gold for this warm rose tone. Make this the bride and groom table so you two feel extra special!
We love this simple and modern cake! The square shape with alternating silver sparkles is fabulous! Add your favorite color such as lavender to brighten it up.
Halloween is right around the corner, this is such a fun time of the year. I love crisp cool air and warm sun. It’s fun to walk through all the colored leaves that have fallen off the tree’s and to admire the amazing palette of colors they make. We indulge in yummy treats like carmel apples and apple pie and enjoy the days before the coldness of winter arrives. Why not celebrate your wedding with a fall and Halloween theme? Each year you’ll have a fun time enjoying your anniversary and something as simple as the smell of apples baking in the oven could bring back memories of saying I do!
Here are some fun ideas to incorporate into your Halloween wedding planning. The items we’ve found below add a vintage feel to your wedding without making it feel like a kid’s party. Enjoy and happy planning!
