Lovestruck Bridal Show – October 14

September 10th, 2012 by Jeannine

Win Tickets: Lovestruck Bridal Show - October 14

It’s just a few weeks until October, time to get Lovestruck! Show producer Angela Girard has been busy since last year’s Lovestruck Bridal Show and she and her team have put together an impressive lineup to help inspire Vancouver brides.

The Details

When: Sunday, October 14, 2012 – 11AM til 5PM, Fashion Show at 1:30PM

Where: Fairmont Waterfront, 900 Canada Place Way, Vancouver – map

Price: Advance – $35 for Brides, $30 for Guests | Door – $45 for Brides, $40 for Guests

The Moodboard Gallery will be back showcasing this year’s top design trends in the wedding industry and while you browse for ideas, enjoy some passed canapés and appetizers! There will also be a Cocktail Lounge and by making a small donation to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, you will get a tray of 5 sample signature drinks! If you love getting pampered, your ticket entitles you to a complete makeover which includes a hair updo by Hellcat Beauty, makeup application by Sephora, and a manicure by Element Spa for Nails. I would advise getting to the show earlier and lining up for these fantastic freebies. Another reason to be a keener that day is the Gift Bags which are only available to the first 200 brides. Don’t forget to enter the grand prize draw too! The winner gets a trip for 2 to the Mayan Riviera worth $11,000 courtesy Fly Away Weddings and Honeymoons, Air Canada Vacations and Playacar Occidental Resort.

Here’s a sneak peek at some fabulous vendors that will be at the event: Vancity Vendors Green Pomme Photography, Isabelle’s Bridal & Pure White Studio will be there as well as top local pros like The Flower Factory, Marliss Productions, Photobooth Vancouver, Maru Photography, Cakes By Meg, Frocks, Absolute DJ, The Tux Store, Musical Occasions, Reflection Events and many more!
