Your wedding may be the biggest celebration of your life, but it’s something more than that–it’s an expression of love that is as personal as it is profound. The Woodlands’ A Memorable Event understands the unique importance of weddings, and creates customized celebratory experiences that are not just memorable–they are utterly unforgettable. If you are one of the lucky (and savvy) brides who had the opportunity to attend the Feb. 12 I Do! Bridal Soiree at The Corinthian, you had the chance to see A Memorable Event’s artistry on display. The full-service wedding design and planning firm’s lavishly bedecked royal table (pictured here, bottom), had brides and their entourages swooning with delight. If a table ever captured the essence of elegance and romance that a wedding reception embodies, it was this spectacular table. For a better look at A Memorable Event’s design expertise and huge inventory of wedding linens, tabletop items, decor and more, drop in on their beautiful new Woodlands warehouse and showroom this Thursday, Feb. 26, any time between 11:30 am and 8 pm.

What a NIGHT. Right?? If you were among the fortunate 300 Houston brides, bridesmaids, grooms and their guests who made the oh-so-savvy decision to snap up I Do! Bridal Soiree tickets while they lasted, last Thursday evening was a night to remember, indeed. On Thursday, Feb. 12, Weddings in Houston magazine presented the truly magnificent I Do! Bridal Soiree at The Corinthian. For three magical hours, attendees met with A-list Houston vendors [see full exhibitor list here!]; dined on sumptuous Mediterranean, Asian and Texas-inspired specialties courtesy of world-renowned Jackson and Company catering; sipped French Champagne and fine wine; enjoyed live entertainment and decadent treats; chatted with mingling models showing off the season’s most gorgeous couture wedding gowns; and, perhaps most thrillingly, wandered through a wonderland of weddingscapes featuring the artistry of Houston’s finest design experts. Whether you were one of our honored guests, or you plan to attend our Fall I Do! Bridal Soiree, coming Oct. 18 to the Four Seasons Hotel Houston–or BOTH–we welcome you to tour Civic Photos’ images of the I Do! Bridal Soiree at The Corinthian. And please join us in thanking Jackson and Company, The Corinthian, Civic Photos, A&A Video, LBL Event Rentals/Linens by Lisa, EB Inc Events, Southern Hospitality Coffee Company, Jonny Black Productions and Scott Graham Piano, for their fabulous contributions to the I Do! Bridal Soiree.
