The I Do! Wedding Soiree is BACK, and it’s going to be more amazing than ever! If you only attend ONE wedding-planning event during your engagement, this is the one…and it’s coming to the Corinthian Houston on Tuesday, Feb. 25 from 6-9 p.m.

The antidote to big-box wedding “conventions,” the I Do! Wedding Soiree is all about indulgence, inspiration, relaxation and FUN. From the moment you walk through the doors of Downtown’s stunning neoclassical event venue, the Corinthian Houston, you’ll find yourself immersed in a luxury cocktail-party environment, filled with fabulous visual displays, gorgeous floral installations and spectacular wedding reception tablescapes.

Wander through this wedding-design fantasy space as you sip fine bubbly or a signature craft cocktail, and sample gourmet menu items from Houston’s best caterers.

Live entertainment, and strolling models showing off the season’s most coveted wedding gowns and bridal accessories, enhance the luxurious ambiance. Meet top Houston wedding vendors as you explore interactive booths showcasing Houston’s best wedding photography, videography, planning services, floral design and event rentals, cakes and desserts, hair and makeup artists, and more.

Designed for brides, bridesmaids, grooms, LGBTQ couples, family, friends and trusted opinion-givers, the I Do! Wedding Soiree is anything but your typical “bridal show.”

While we have much to delight our awesome Houston brides, the Soiree offers plenty for the guys, too! So bring your spouse-to-be, your dad, your brother and/or your best guy friend, along with the girls, and make it an after-work happy hour that’ll make you all very happy, indeed. Each and every bride and groom goes home with a coveted Soiree Swag Bag, filled with hundreds of dollars worth of luxury and artisanal beauty, skincare, home and lifestyle goodies, hand-picked by our editorial staff just for our Soiree guests. And make sure you stay for the whole show…you don’t want to miss our end-of-evening door prizes, which include huge special offers, giveaways and gifts from Houston’s top wedding vendors and retailers.
