We’re so excited to unveil the first of our I Do! @ InterContinental bridal runway videos, from super-talented A&A Video! Today we are showcasing Houston bridal salon Parvani Vida Bridal & Formal, which dazzled all assembled in the gorgeous Legends Ballroom on Jan. 15, with bridal gowns from Enzoani, La Sposa, Sincerity, Casablanca and Allure Couture. Love the ruffled tiers, tea-length styles and fine-feathered fascinators. How ‘bout you?

More gorgeous runway video coming soon…stay tuned!

What Whet Your Wedding Appetite?

You came (in droves), you saw, you asked, you chatted, you tweeted, you gasped, you clapped, and some of you won some really snazzy bridal swag.

But what did you LOVE at last Sunday’s I Do! Bridal Soiree at the InterContinental Houston Hotel?

We’d love to hear which vendors clicked for you, which table displays dazzled you most, what show features (the runway presentation? the tablescape gallery? the gift bags?) were your favorites, and what was your most valuable find at last weekend’s show.

E-mail your feedback—just a sentence or two is fine, though if you’ve got five paragraphs, we’ll take that, too! Your input is utterly invaluable to us. It’s what helps us make the I Do! Bridal Soiree the best possible bridal showcase it can be. So do it for us. Do it for your sister brides-to-be. Better yet, do it for your chance to win an exclusive, secret prize, which will be awarded to one bride who e-mails her I Do! comments by next Friday, Feb. 3. Winner announced on Facebook on Monday, Feb. 6!!

Debuts, Discounts and Giveaways: Here’s What I Do! Vendors Have in Store For You

Sure, the I Do! Bridal Soiree is about insanely beautiful tabletop and floral displays, the season’s newest bridal couture creations, and, of course, the latest and loveliest everything you could ever want for your perfect Houston wedding. But heck, let’s face it, it’s also about the GOODIES—as in big, juicy show discounts, yummy samples and take-home swag, and fantastic I Do! door prizes and giveaways.

Just a little glimpse at the good stuff a handful of our talented vendors have in store for you: Wedding design and planning firm A Day to Remember will be showcasing bridal- and engagement-shoot styling, for brides who crave that ineffably elegant “magazine” look for their pre-wedding photos. “Gone are the days of traditional shoots, now, it’s about styling them and having fun!” notes A Day to Remember’s Claudia G. de Velasco, who will also be offering special rates for brides who book at Sunday’s show. From LZ Floral Design expect to see contemporary orchid trees, alluring aisle lanterns and fresh new looks in centerpiece and bouquet design—and expect to score your choice of 10% off your selected floral package, a complimentary floral monogram or a complimentary bridal portrait bouquet. Hot Houston lighting firm Bright Star Productions will be demonstrating plenty of illuminating new effects, including gorgeous high-resolution gobo projections, and the latest in LED technology, and is offering the chance to win a custom monogram gobo. Jackglass Studios, meanwhile, plans to attract stylish brides (and grooms!) with new crystal Champagne flutes, sleek liquor decanters, etched stainless-steel flasks, engraved cufflinks and more, and is contributing a beautiful pair of crystal toasting flutes to one of Weddings in Houston’s incredible door-prize baskets, each worth upwards of $1,000. Yowza!

As we said, this is just a teeny, tiny glimpse of what’s in store to see, experience, book and SCORE at I Do! @ InterContinental. For the full picture, be there on Sunday—you WON’T walk away empty-handed.
