I Do! Bridal Soiree Houston

Photo: Civic Photos

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.

There’s something about a Tacori diamond ring that just gets your heart beating. Hard. Maybe it’s the ultra high quality of those sparkling, sparkling stones. Or perhaps it’s the extraordinary care that goes into creating such superb pieces of jewelry (each and every Tacori ring is hand-crafted in California by expert artisans). Whatever it is that gives Tacori diamond and fine-gemstone jewelry its unique fire and fabulousness, it is, in a word, extraordinary. You can find Tacori engagement rings and bridal jewelry here in Houston at Zadok Master Jewelers. And today, when you purchase tickets to the utterly spectacular I Do! Bridal Soiree, coming to The Corinthian next Thursday, Feb. 12, you can WIN this gorgeous $400 Tacori necklace–the perfect piece to pair with a chic, sleek cocktail dress, or your favorite white T-shirt and comfy jeans (good luck, loves!!):

Hydrate Dry, Dull Winter Skin with Kate Somerville’s Coveted Scrub

Sunday, January 4th, 2015
Winter skin = dry, chapped, dull…icky skin. Even here in notoriously humid Houston. Which is why we are soooo in love with Kate Somerville’s super-effective ExfoliKate® Intensive Exfoliating Treatment. If you attended a recent Weddings in Houston I Do! Bridal Soiree, you may have found a tube of this much-coveted scrub in your take-home swag bag. And if you’re smart, you’ve probably used it up…and seen beautiful results. Do yourself a New Year favor and pick up a full-size version of ExfoliKate, packed with scrubbing microbeads, salicylic acid, honey, aloe vera and vitamin E. It’s a must-have for bridal beauty regimens, and a godsend during this season of brisk winds, sharp chills and, yeah, a sweet relief from the heat. Love you, lovelies!
