I recently had the privilege of attending another Wedding Store 24 bridal expo at the Sofitel Beverly Hills. Like other events hosted by Wedding Store 24, this event was a delight and a wonderful sensory experience. Upon entering the venue, I was greeted with the lovely sounds of live Indian music and beautiful dancers.
After registration I headed over to the “food room” where four vendors each set up a delicious and decadent display. Here, I found an elaborate assortment of traditional Indian cuisine that was simply delicious. My favorite dishes were the delightful chicken masala and jasmine rice. Another vendor set up a colorful table of very tempting looking deserts. It was hard to limit myself to only a select few!
Next I traveled into the vendor ballroom which was beautifully draped in sheer linens interspersed with glimmering bead strands. The room looked great and with the help of upbeat dance music, it created an overall fun and energetic environment. I wandered the various vendor tables and talked with some great people. Among them was a yummy baklava bakery, an events design company who designed a gorgeous display and a few venue representatives. It was great to see all the detail that goes into putting on a spectacular wedding event. Not being from the Indian tradition myself, I am fascinated by the mixture of modern tastes with traditional customs.
Toward the end of the event, guests were treated to a meet & greet with celebrity wedding planner David Tutera. The long line to chat with the celeb planner did not deter the brides who all seemed excited to get there moment to talk weddings. Following the meet & greet were two fashion shows with beautiful designs for both men and women. The models’ energy was contagious. The audience cheered while they pranced down the runway in some breathtaking designs. The ladies were dressed in vibrant shades of pink, red, gold and white decorated with shimmering stones. It was gorgeous!
As always, this Wedding Store 24 event was really fun and fabulous. Brides were treated to delicious food and awesome entertainment, all while getting great ideas for their weddings. We can’t wait for more events at more fabulous venues! Of course, Bridal Hot List will keep you up to date on all that’s new and hot in the wedding world!
