Once Gown Event :: San Diego

This past weekend, some of my girlfriends and I attended the Once Gown Event held in downtown San Diego, CA. at the University Club. We were all taken away with how beautiful the event was; from the amazing gowns to the sparkling glitter runway where the Brides to Be got to strut their stuff!

Once Brides registered their wedding gowns in hopes for a new Bride to find her wedding dress, and if their dress sold, they earned 75% of the profit! While I could not let my gown go, it was a fabulous way to bring together your girlfriends and family to experience some bridal bliss.

While the champagne was flowing, Brides to Be were able to try on 3 Gowns at a time, and meet and greet with local vendors. More information here on any upcoming Once Gown Events, and if they have another event at the University Club, be sure to purchase your tickets! You will not want to miss out on the view, the gowns, oh and did I mention cupcakes and bubbles?  What more could a Bride to Be ask for?
