UPDATE: A Day to Remember 10th Anniversary Party @ Villa Rinata-Correct RSVP Address

We don’t mean to interrupt your well-deserved Labor Day lounging around, but you may want to take a sec to mark your calendar.

Houston brides and their entourages fortunate enough to attend will find themselves surrounded by fine food and drink, awesome entertainment, great door prizes and swag, swag, swag.

As you can imagine, space is limited. So if you’re a bride-to-be who’s looking for amazing wedding ideas, while simultaneously taking a break from the hard work of wedding planning, make sure to RSVP, PDQ!

To Do This Week: Judd Waddell Trunk Show @ Mia Bridal Couture

We’re big fans of bridal designer Judd Waddell’s “Notice the woman first, the dress second” philosophy of wedding gown design. After all, what bride wants to be upstaged by her own dress??

If you like the idea of crisp, chic, refined elegance and impeccable, understated detailing, designed by one of the best in the biz (not to mention the former head of bridal for Carolina Herrera), you might want to make an appointment to visit Mia Bridal Couture this Friday or Saturday, when Judd Waddell gowns are in town for an exclusive trunk show.

And lest we need remind you: Get 15% off when you purchase your Judd Waddell gown during this special event. Cha-ching!

To Do This Week: Open Houses at Enchanted Cypress Ballroom and La Toretta Lake Resort

Sure, it’s got that dazzling fountain and those 18-foot-tall, filigree doors. Yeah, it’s got custom-made crystal chandeliers, a 26-by-26-foot dance floor, and room to seat 600 or so of your nearest and dearest. But what we really love about the Enchanted Cypress Ballroom are those 15 awesome “picture walls” that surround the entire ballroom and can be programmed to screen big, beautiful photos of you and your hubby for all to see! Come check it out for yourself on Saturday, when Enchanted Cypress opens its really big doors to discerning brides…like you.
