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?

Dripping With Decadence

From Park to Palace, there was a significant difference in wedding themes displayed at the Hyatt Rengency La Jolla Bridal Show this past weekend.  For the more glamorous bride, there were options that were dripping with diamonds or dripping with enchantment.

They brought on the glitz and glam with sequin tablecloths and hanging crystals in this wedding vignette.  A touch of vintage class was represented through the French inspired furniture and elegant place settings.  I love how all the floral arrangements went from White & Modern to soft and feminine throughout.

For the soft romantic, these gorgeous pastel hues glow in the candlelight. This just-picked look from my English garden look goes hand in hand with an elegant place setting and extreme mood lighting.

If you’d like to make your guests feel like they have entered an enchanted forest, this beautiful table arrangement with orchids to boot would make you a believer!

This romantic and whimsical combination is the best of both worlds, will someone please pass the anise poke crudités?
