You love Astros baseball. He loves Astros baseball. You love wedding stuff. He loves…Astros baseball. OK, so maybe you’ll be the one doing most of the oohing and aahing over the lavish linen and gorgeous décor and fabulous flowers at the first-ever Houston Astros Weddings Showcase. But he’ll be at your side, nodding and smiling supportively, and after you’ve checked out the 20 or so awesome Houston wedding vendors and daintily sampled the decadent cakes on display, you can gobble down Diablo Dogs and cheer yourself silly at the Astros/Rays game!
It all starts at 1 p.m. on Sat. May 22 in Minute Maid Park’s Union Station Lobby. In addition to top local wedding pros, the Houston Astros along with ballpark catering provider ARAMARK will have a booth showcasing great stuff like baseball-themed engagement and bridal portraits, rehearsal dinners, and ceremonies and receptions at Minute Maid Park.
We checked in with Katy Preisler, assistant sales director for special events for the Houston Astros Baseball Club, and she assured us that brides and grooms won’t want to miss checking out this “perfect venue for an unforgettable evening.” As for having your wedding at Minute Maid Park, Preisler tells us, “Out of town guests enjoy visiting our classic ballpark, brides love the elegant columns and architecture of the space, and grooms can boast that they really are in the Big Leagues after tying the knot.” We love it!
And because we know you’ll love it too, we’re giving away tickets to brides who share their insanely romantic, “I-can’t-believe-he-did-that” PROPOSAL stories. Tickets go to the most romantic proposal tales, so if you’ve got a doozy, lay it on us right here. He knocked it out of the park, right? Now you get a chance to watch the Astros do the same—while enjoying a winning wedding showcase. Score!
