Athena Gun Club Bridal Open House Tues. 9/8

Photos: Athena Gun Club & Social Sell

Athena, the Greek goddess of courage, wisdom, and law and justice, seems an apt namesake for Houston’s most sophisticated and woman-friendly shooting range. But Athena Gun Club is so much more than a place to practice one’s marksmanship skills or learn the finer points of handgun safety. Athena Gun Club, is in fact, one of THE coolest spots in town to gather your gals for an exhilarating, inspiring and totally one-of-a-kind bachelorette bash or bridesmaids’ night-out.

Kick off your pre-wedding celebration with a turn in Athena’s dynamic virtual simulator, sprinting through the faux battleground of your choice (Wild West? Sure! Zombies more your cup of tea? They’ve got those, too!). Progress to Athena’s state-of-the-art live fire range, for a high-tech shooting experience that will keep you all fired up, and keep your BFFs smiling BIG. Then relax and relive your tales of target glory over fresh, handcrafted cocktails and delicious bites.

Did we mention that Athena hosts bachelor bashes, rehearsal dinners and engagement parties, too? Now we did.

Grab your spouse-to-be and/or a couple of gun-loving besties (or interested novices), and check out Houston’s hottest gun club for yourself next Tuesday, Sept. 8th, from 6-8 p.m., when Athena hosts a Bridal Open House, including a private tour, 50% off range fees and awesome simulator demonstrations! RSVP here. See you THERE.

Its name is Spanish for “wood,” which is perfectly appropriate, considering Madera Estates’ majestic pine-covered acres located just north of The Woodlands. This Sunday, from 5 to 8 p.m., Conroe’s picturesque haven welcomes you, your spouse-to-be, and your closest advisors and opinion-givers for an evening of sips, bites, tours and intros to Madera’s preferred vendors. Wander Madera Estates’ lovely wooded grounds, snap a pic beside its iconic fountain, peek in on Madera’s gracious bridal suite, and take a few practice twirls in Madera’s beautiful ballroom, with its gleaming floors, twinkling chandeliers and handcrafted mirrors.

Best of all? You’ll get to experience a bit of everything this truly, totally full-service wedding venue has to offer, including fabulous floral displays, great entertainment and delicious food. RSVP here for Madera Estates Summer Open House on Sunday, Aug. 30 from 5 to 8 p.m.

Go. See. Love!

2015 Client Appreciation Party at La Colombe d’Or by Civic Photos

They create the most incredible celebrations in town. So each year, we celebrate them, with a pull-out-all-the-stops party where Houston’s top wedding pros can let their hair down (or tease it wayyyyy out, as pictured below), dance, dine, and get fabulously festive with friends, colleagues and the staff of Weddings in Houston magazine. This year’s Client Appreciation Party, with its ’70s-Glam theme design from Darryl & Co., and fantastic disco soundtrack, courtesy of DJU Productions, transformed regal venue La Colombe d’Or into a Studio 54-inspired nightclub…and transformed an enthusiastic crowd of Houston’s most talented wedding vendors and experts into a hip-shaking, down-getting, conga-lining bunch of boogie queens and kings that only stepped away from the dance floor to refuel on themed cocktails, fine food…and delicious cake from the amazing Susie’s Cakes & Confections. Oh, and also: There were rollerskates.

Check out party pix from the wonderful Barett and Saul of Civic Photos…and be sure to scroll down to see our “Best Costume” winners: Lee Capetillo of A Memorable Event, and Lisa Hudson of Hotel ZaZa!!

Rivini Spring 2016 at Mia Bridal Couture Aug. 27-29

Rivini Spring 2016 at Mia Bridal Couture Aug. 27-29

Photos: Rivini

With her passion for classic elegance and her focus on traditional silhouettes and simple sophistication, Rivini designer Rita Vinieris is not one for wedding dresses that bare it all, or bring to mind Vegas showgirls. Instead, Rivini’s new Spring 2016 collection takes its inspiration from the English landscape artist J. M. W. Turner, whose paintings are filled with natural light, radiant clouds and dreamy reflections. For Vinieris, that means bridal gowns with transparent layers that suggest a glimpse of the bride’s figure beneath, rather than how-low-can-you-go backs and ultra-plunge bodices.

See these stunning gowns next week, when famed Houston salon Mia Bridal Couture hosts an exclusive Rivini Spring 2016 trunk show. Mia’s expert consultants will be on hand to help you select your perfect Rivini gown, and assist you in styling it with beautiful accessories. Plus, Mia Bridal Couture will be offering special purchase incentives (meaning $ off retail!) for brides who purchase a Rivini gown during this special three-day event.

Appointments for this highly anticipated Rivini trunk show WILL fill. Make yours now, and make plans to be utterly and completely wowed.
