Recap: Brock House Wedding Show 2015

It was a busy day but I managed to make time for one of my favourite wedding shows, the Brock House Wedding Show. Here are some of my highlights…

On the driveway leading up to the Brock House, guests were greeted by a pink carpet and gorgeous backdrop for photo-ops and inside I was surprised to see a change in the layout. The tent where the fashion show was normally held was turned into a massive lounge, at the centre of it all, a long table dressed up to the nines (see photo above). Guests were able to get their photos here by Vancouver Photobooth, try some signature cocktails by Lavish Liquid, enjoy an oyster by Curious Oyster, and delectable cake samples from The Cake and the Giraffe. There were also some lounge chairs for guests to relax in. All throughout the show there were inspiration stations provided by vendors including Taffete Designs, Bespoke Decor Rentals, Flowerz, and many more. Even Lavish Liquid got in on it. They had a champagne tower.

Beyond the lounge was a larger tent where the fashion show was held. In it were 250 Chiavari chairs, a gleaming white runway, white flowy backdrop and lavish chandeliers to complement the models wearing beautiful creations by Kathryn Bass Bridal and gowns from Isabelle’s Bridal. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to stay for the fashion show so all I have is this photo of the DreamGroup team giving away prizes. Be sure to like their Facebook page to be the first to know when the professional photos of the show will be released.

Some of my favourite freebies from this show are the tasty canapés by Brock House Restaurant, complimentary calligraphy provided by Bespoke Decor Rentals and the roaming oyster shucker by Curious Oyster. Brock House servers had an impressive spread of hors d’oeuvres for guests which included sliders, grilled cheese sandwiches, bruschetta, French fries wrapped in bacon and many more.

In addition to a man cave decor display and other inspiration tablescapes, Bespoke Decor Rentals had their resident calligrapher on hand creating personalized calligraphy for everyone. I had one done too and will for sure frame it. It was lovely! They offer calligraphy services in addition to decor rentals but if you have your own frame, mirror, chalkboard (or whatever medium), you can hire them to do calligraphy on your items.

The coolest thing though, in my opinion, is the roaming oyster shucker. I love oysters and I thought this was a really cool service that Curious Oyster is providing. You hire a shucker and buy the set number of oysters you want to serve. The shucker arrives at your event wearing a belt with bins for oysters, sauces, and empty shells and they roam around serving guests freshly shucked oysters. It could be a little pricey but if it’s your thing, you might want to consider the splurge… especially if your friends and family love this sort of thing too.

Probably the best freebie is the freebie only the lucky brides were able to get… the EPIC Bridal Gift Bag. I got a sneak peek of it though! Lots of goodies from so many vendors and it included a pashmina (yes! a pashmina), OPI nail polish, beauty products, sweet treats, lucky bamboo, and so much more. Here’s a look at what’s inside.
