My Dream Wedding Show - September 15, 2012

I’m happy to announce a brand new wedding show coming to Vancouver this fall. Anca Tantos, owner of Anca’s Bridal in Cloverdale presents: My Dream Wedding Show, “where your dreams meet reality!” The entire 6th floor of the Shangri-La Hotel in Downtown Vancouver will host this event featuring over 80 wedding vendors in Metro Vancouver.

The Details

When: Saturday, September 15, 2012 – 10AM til 6PM (Fashion shows at 12PM & 4PM)

Where: Shangri-la Hotel, Vancouver – map

Price: $20 in advance or $25 at the door – buy online or contact Anca’s Bridal at 778-574-0200

$2 from every ticket sold will be donated to BC Children’s Hospital

The first 300 brides to register will receive a deluxe gift bag worth $150!

Some notable vendors who will be at the show include Vancity Vendor Sweetpiece Jewelry, Milestone Events, Pottery Barn, Westwood Plateau Golf & Country Club, Le Gateau Bake Shop, 6Pence Wedding Planning & Design, Universal Photobooth, Ultimate Limo, Black & Lee, Absolute DJ Entertainment, and many many more!

You definitely won’t be bored at this show because there will be lots to see and do. If you’re hungry, there will be appetizers and refreshments being served, courtesy Shangri-La. Anca’s Bridal will be having a sample sale so if you’re still looking for your dream dress, you may find it at a steal!

30 minute presentations by select wedding vendors will also happen throughout the day in the theater, you can learn a thing or two about planning a wedding yourself! This show also features vendors to suit both the bride and the groom. Grooms-to-be can chill at the Gentlemen’s Lounge where there will be beer tasting, golf, masculine Mancakes cupcakes, and other groom-oriented wedding vendors. The brides-to-be, on the other hand, can get some pampering at the Beauty Lounge, where Bombay Brow Bar, Luxe Beauty Lounge, and Solar Flare Tanning will be! In all the show excitement, be sure not to miss the fashion shows at 12pm and 4pm featuring Anca’s Bridal and Pure (Something) Clothing Co. dresses! Of course, each vendor will have “show specials” so you might be able to save a few  bucks on your wedding too! Or perhaps, you can get something for free! Yes there will be lots of prizes up for grabs too… who wouldn’t want to win dresses from Anca’s Bridal or a night stay at the gorgeous Shangri-La Hotel?

To top it all off – there will also be a celebrity in the house! Kevin Lee from Brides of Beverly Hills and the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will be there to sign autographs and take photos with you (at no extra charge)! How fun!
