I Do! Wedding Soiree: Recap + Photos

The 2020 I Do! Wedding Soiree on February 25th was definitely a night to remember! We’re so grateful to our official Soiree photographer, Civic Photos and videographer, Meant To Be Films, for beautifully capturing The I Do! Wedding Soiree at the Corinthian Houston.

We’re equally grateful to the awesome Houston wedding vendors who helped make the Soiree our most successful ever. And a huge thanks to our host venues, Corinthian Houston, and The Vault at Corinthian Houston, Corinthian’s brand new industrial chic event space.

In case you missed it, or if you want to relive the fun, we have gathered our favorite photos and a recap of the evening’s events to share with you here. For a full photo gallery of the event, view our 2020 I Do! Soiree Pinterest Board!

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.

How’s THAT for a list of fine Houston wedding vendors and experts? Oh–and they’re some of the nicest folks in the business, too, so be prepared to meet, chat, book…and maybe even make a few new friends in the process! Here are some additional tips to help you enjoy the I Do! Wedding Soiree to the fullest:

DO take Uber, Lyft or taxi to The Astorian if possible; if you do plan to drive, you may valet park at The Astorian for a reduced valet fee of $12; limited street parking also is available in the area–please carefully observe street and lot parking signs to avoid ticketing.

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 bring your mobile device, and be prepared to share favorite finds.

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!

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