I Do! Wedding Soiree Attendees | Photo: Ama By Aisha
With so many top Houston wedding vendors to visit, so much amazing food and drink to enjoy, and such a spectacular environment to experience, you’ll want to give yourself time to take it all in, and make the most of attending the I Do! Wedding Soiree. These tips will help you do just that:

DO take Uber, Lyft or a taxi to the Corinthian Houston if possible. If you do plan to drive, valet parking will be available for an additional fee of $15. Very limited street parking and private-lot parking is available in the area–please carefully observe street and lot parking signs to avoid ticketing.

DO plan to purchase your I Do! tickets with cash or credit card if you plan to buy tickets at the door; checks will not be accepted. **NOTE: We strongly encourage you to purchase tickets prior to the event; only a very limited number of tickets will be available at the door IF advance tickets do not sell out completely. Make sure to follow us on Instagram for ticket availability updates.

DO bring your besties, your spouse-to-be, your family members and valued opinion-givers—the I Do! Wedding Soiree is an evening of fun, food, drink and beautiful displays everywhere you look!

DO use our hashtag: #idoweddingsoiree when posting and sharing!

DO come dressed to impress—the I Do! Soiree is a luxury cocktail event, and business-stylish attire is part of the fun! Please, no shorts, tank tops or flip-flops.

DO stay for the full event—winners of our exclusive pre-show giveaways and on-site door prizes will be announced at the end of the show, and you must be present to claim your prize when it is announced.

Please DO NOT bring strollers, infants or anyone under the age of 16. The I Do! Wedding Soiree is an adult event, featuring delicate displays (and LOTS of them). We love little ones…but this is not an appropriate environment for them.

DO enjoy every moment of this very special event! We have curated it for YOU, and we look forward to meeting you and finding out how we can help you create the wedding of your dreams!

DO get ready, get gorgeous, get happy…and we’ll see YOU at I Do!
