Houston Wedding Cake Weddings in Houston Winter Bride

Less than three weeks to go till the Jan. 23 I Do! Bridal Soiree takes over The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa: Got your tickets yet?

If not, here are FIVE reasons to snag them NOW:

1. I Do! is Houston’s ONLY luxury bridal show. Other bridal events may have vendors, snacks, even swag. But only I Do! features the absolute cream of the crop of Houston wedding talent and expertise, from floral and décor gurus, to purveyors of fine custom EVERYTHING for your wedding, to top celebrity and socialite wedding planners.

2. And speaking of luxury—how about the luxury of TIME? The I Do! Bridal Soiree is five full, fabulous hours of wedding ideas, inspiration and interaction. Which means you get to enjoy gazing at tablescapes, schmoozing with experts and indulging in fine food, drink and, yes, cake, at your leisure. No herding, no hustling, no rush.

3. Gowns, gowns, gowns. If you’re searching for the one, the exact perfect one, for your day of a lifetime, there is no place you’re more likely to find it than on the runway of the always-incredible I Do! fashion show. The most coveted designer bridal gowns, the most deliriously beautiful looks in wedding-day hair, makeup and accessories, all in one place, which just happens to be the place you’re in. How cool is that?

4. I Do! may be a luxury event, but the ticket price? Bargain-o-rama. If you find even one great vendor or product—one fantastic invitation designer, one perfect Lanvin-pink table linen, one extraordinary photographer—for your big day (and chances are you’ll find lots more than that), your $20 investment will have paid off lavishly. All that, and a killer goodie bag, too? Now that’s the kind of deal a girl could really fall in love with.

5. They’re gonna sell out. They always do.

So don’t get left out in the January cold, while your savvy sister brides are sipping and shopping and glowing and getting their socks totally knocked off inside The Houstonian on Sunday, Jan. 23. Get your I Do! tickets now…and we’ll see you there!

Brickhouse Bridal Honors Veterans Day With Gown Giveaway

2010 Military Gown Giveaway

You probably know that Houston is home to many military brides-to-be—future brides who either are serving on active duty themselves, or whose fiancés are. Well, this Thursday, Veteran’s Day, Brickhouse Bridal will once again help some of those brides get just a little bit closer to having the wedding of their dreams.

Starting at 10 a.m., Thurs. Nov. 11, Brickhouse will open its doors to military brides as part of the Brides Across America Nationwide Military Gown Giveaway. Salon staff will hand out numbers on a first-come first-served basis, and will bring qualifying brides (you must be engaged and on active duty, or have a fiancé on active duty in Iraq or Afghanistan, and provide verifying documentation) into the store for individual consultations, and assistance selecting the perfect gown from among nearly 250 options.

Brickhouse Bridal Military Gown Giveaway Military Gown Giveaway

One bit of advice: Brickhouse urges qualifying brides to wait until Thursday to come into the salon to search for their gown, since some gowns that will be featured in the giveaway may differ from those in the store’s regular stock.

We can’t tell you how proud we are of our military brides—proud, too, of Houston’s very own Brickhouse Bridal, for its generous contribution to this worthy cause.

And just to give you a little context, national nonprofit Brides Across America and its partners in cities across the nation have donated more than 5,000 gowns from top designers including Vera Wang, Amsale and Pronovias, over the past five years alone.

Are you a military bride, or do you know someone who is? Call Brickhouse Bridal at 381.681.3430 or e-mail.

And thank you, for all you do.
