VeilTV at the Shangri-La – April 17

April 9th, 2011 by Jeannine


This time around, the luxurious Shangri-La Hotel in Downtown Vancouver will host the next free Veil Show. Expect an intimate atmosphere, couples will have a chance to connect with a select few of the top vendors in the business, at least one for every aspect of the planning process. After viewing their website, I had the misconception that Veil only showcased high-end vendors. The organizers assured me that they work with vendors with a variety of price ranges, so long as they follow the same principles as Veil. They collaborate with vendors who are passionate about their craft and strives to provide their client with the best possible service they can give. Some vendors you’ll be able to meet at this show are Images by Bethany, Isabelle’s Bridal, and Absolute Entertainment.

The Veil shows are all about being laid-back, fun, yet informative, without the rush of a large wedding show. It will be a great opportunity to get some good advice from top pros in the wedding industry. As part of the fun atmosphere, Veil offers refreshments for those who attend, canapés and handmade sodas will be served courtesy Market by Jean-Georges.

Although the event happens on one of the rare Sundays I work, it’s just around the corner from me so I’ll be able to pop by and check things out. Rest assured, a recap post will be written so those who can’t make it will know what to expect the next time the show comes around :)

The Details

Where: Shangri-La Hotel, 1128 West Georgia Street, Vancouver – map

When: Sunday, April 17, 2011 from 11 AM til 4 PM

You have to RSVP if you plan to go, just email them at rsvp@veiltv.com. A reminder that Downtown might be a zoo that day because of the Sun Run so check for road closures or come early to find parking :)

On another note… There must be something about April 17th because there are at least 3 wedding events happening that day, this Veil show, the Amara Wedding beauty event I posted about earlier, and the Cinderella Bridal Show.  To find out more details about the Cinderella Bridal Show, check back tomorrow for a post :)

Have a great day!
