Highlights from the Niagara Autumn Wedding Show

Highlights from the Niagara Autumn Wedding Show

Promotions

Today, my partner Chachi and I attended the Niagara Autumn Wedding Show as part of our marketing work with Second Dance Bridal.

It was a really well attended show! I’m already happily married to someone else, and Chachi gets cold feet just thinking about weddings–the moment he saw one of the models trying on one of the bridal gowns in preparation for the fashion show his blood pressure started to rise–but it was a really nice event and we enjoyed meeting so many terrific vendors from the Niagara Region and around the Golden Horseshoe.

We’d like to highlight some of our favourite vendors from the day.

Second Dance Bridal

Of course, we’re partial to Second Dance. Yes, they’re our social media marketing client, but they also have a fabulous, smart business dedicated to helping real people get the most of their bridal gown experience. Whether you’re a recently married bride who could use the money from consigning their gown to help start their new life with their husband, or a bride-to-be looking for an incredible price on a luxury gown, Second Dance creates a win:win situation for everyone involved. And most importantly, their gowns are stunning. seconddance.ca

Love this peplum gown on this model! #bridalgowns #weddingdress #wedding #fashionshow #Niagara

It was great to see my friend Elizabeth Klassen. She took photos at my own wedding! elizabethklassenphotography.com

The people from the Bridal Guide were really nice, and we're thrilled to hear about their project, Gay Weddings. It's about time that an underrepresented community gets the attention they deserve. gayweddings.ca

Criveller Cakes
Last week we met the nice people from Criveller Cakes at the Hamilton Wedding Show. Their table was so popular that I didn’t get a chance to try their cake, but today I made sure to get a slice! You could really taste that they used high quality, real ingredients, and I loved that the cake wasn’t too sweet. A+ crivellercakes.com

I had no idea that the Niagara Parks offered wedding venues, and they actually offer several for both ceremonies and receptions. niagaraparksweddings.com

Another fun photo booth idea -- the Magic Mirror! You look into a mirror and it takes your picture. Cute idea. magicmirror.ca

We really liked the idea of the custom candy apples and candies for weddings.

Having a professional fireworks show at your wedding seems like a really show-stopping idea!

I wanted to give a shout out to a local cupcake shop, The Frosted Cupcake. They were so busy that we didn't have a chance to chat with them, but their display looked scrumptious! http://thefrostedcupcake.ca

We didn’t get to take a snapshot of the Casablanca Winery Inn but it’s one of our favourite Niagara Region venues, and the people we met both last week and this week have been really nice. Definitely check it out! casablancawineryinn.com
