A Gorgeous Glimpse of the Oct. 19 I Do! Wedding Soiree

Tuesday, October 24th, 2017

It was one for the record books, darlings. Seriously. If you were lucky enough to be with us last Thursday evening for the one-and-only I Do! Wedding Soiree at The Astorian, we want to a) THANK YOU for attending our signature wedding fantasyscape (aka the hottest bride-and-groom cocktail bash in town), and b) take you right back to the magic, with this gorgeous gallery of Soiree photos from our outstanding show photographer Aisha Khan of Ama Photography & Cinema!! If you weren’t able to make it for the Soiree, we invite you to join us for our spring Soiree (details to come…so make sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for the heads up!), and welcome you to sample a taste of the OMG with these beautiful shots! BIG THANKS to ALL of our amazing show exhibitors, and a special shout-out to our Soiree partners, without whom none of this would be possible: The Astorian, Cordua Catering, EB Inc. Event Rentals & Design, LG Entertainment and pianist Scott Graham. And now…feast your eyes on…FABULOUS!

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!
