Every day last week I had something wedding related to attend to! As some of you may know, I got engaged a few weeks back and in the midst of venue research, my best friend and I attended the New York Weddings Event for inspiration. The goodie bag alone was worth the trip but I knew I had to share some of the pretty little things from the show too!
Above, the bride & groom birdies is from my favorite booth, BHLDN. This vintage inspired company’s overall aesthetic is so on point for me, I fell in love with everything! The photo collage below is also from their booth – the shoe on the jadeite plate is a perfect vintage chic display. Be sure look HERE for even more lovely things by BHLDN.
One of the most talked about booths of the show was Confetti System. This unique paper decor element would add life and color to any event. They had their work displayed in the entrance way, which made for a spectacular first impression. Check out a few photos below and be sure to look at their website HERE. I am fond of their Crystal Pinata (featured below in silver) that is filled with sparkling confetti.
One of the main sponsors (with the largest square footage) was Ann Taylor Weddings & Events. The photo on left below shows off some of their glitzy accessories and to the right is a display by The Works Catering. They work at many venues in NYC but mostly their own, Housing Works Bookstore in Soho. I love the fact that they are a non-profit benefiting those who have and are affected by HIV/AIDS.
What wedding event would be complete without flowers and dresses! The floral event sponsor, MaganaFloral Design decked out the space with pretty displays like the one below. Two of my favorite dresses on the floor were by The White Gown (left) and the infamous, Kleinfeld Bridal (right). Although I haven’t even begun to think about the style of the dress I’d like, they were too pretty not to be showcased.
As I mentioned last week, I love proper millinery designs and Suzanne Couture Millinery did not disappoint (below left). The ladies at their booth were so warm and welcoming, I will definitely check out their shop on the Upper East Side.
There were plenty of sweet treats to be had but the cutest and tastiest samples were from Cake Alchemy. My friend Lisa highly recommends their red velvet! Of course, we washed it down with a much needed glass of champagne at the bar. We admired the chandelier by Taylor Creative for a few moments before starting a second lap around the event.
