To Do This Week: Danny Ray Band Showcase at Fox Hollow

Monday, October 17th, 2016

“Words cannot describe how thankful I am for you.” “You made my wedding night absolutely perfect.” “This band is AWESOME!!” Real praise, from real brides and real grooms, about the really, REALLY talented Danny Ray & The Acoustic Production. These guys do it all–from nostalgic ’90s rock and pop, to old-school hip-hop mashups, to local Texas country favorites…and so much more. And this Wednesday they’re doing it live, on stage, at Fox Hollow. Grab your honey, your squad, heck–even Mom & Dad–and head on down after work to grab a cold one or a craft cocktail and check out this incredibly talented Houston party band. They’ll start their set with acoustic jazz, and work their way into high-energy jams that will have you on your feet, asking for more…say, at your wedding reception?? No RSVP or tickets needed, and admission is free. See you THERE!

This is IT, darlings…the I Do! Wedding Soiree is just TWO days away, and we are putting the final touches on all the finery and fabulousness you can expect to encounter at our signature luxury wedding event, this Wednesday, Oct. 5, from 6-9 p.m!

Join us for an evening of couture, cocktails and wedding-planning magic, unlike anything you’ve experienced, when we open the doors to I Do! at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. From your first signature Blushing Bride cocktail, to the moment you depart with your $$$ gift bag of hand-picked products (and possibly one of our incredible door prizes!), you’ll be wined & dined, inspired and treated like the VIP you were always meant to be!

While you’re at I Do!, make sure to pose for a pic in front of our amazing backdrop from Balushka Paper Floral Artistry, enjoy gourmet eats from Jackson and Company Catering and Café Natalie Catering, and indulge in mini treatments and demos from our fantastic beauty pros. And, of course, you’re invited to dance to the music of Scott Graham Piano and DJ LG Entertainment, and chat one-on-one with Houston’s top wedding vendors, in jewelry, cakes, flowers, attire, planning, invitations, photography, videography, honeymoon and destination travel…and more!

Here’s what to know before you GO to I Do!:

DO bring your besties, your spouse-to-be, your family members and valued opinion-givers—the I Do! Wedding Soiree is no mere wedding show, it’s an evening of fun, food, drink and beautiful displays everywhere you look!

DO bring your mobile device, and be prepared to Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat…and take part in our special on-site social media contests!

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!

Limited advance tickets on sale while they last. Get yours NOW…and get ready for WOW!
