This is IT, darlings…the I Do! Wedding Soiree is just TWO days away, and we are putting the final touches on all the finery and fabulousness you can expect to encounter at our signature luxury wedding event, this Wednesday, Oct. 5, from 6-9 p.m!

Join us for an evening of couture, cocktails and wedding-planning magic, unlike anything you’ve experienced, when we open the doors to I Do! at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. From your first signature Blushing Bride cocktail, to the moment you depart with your $$$ gift bag of hand-picked products (and possibly one of our incredible door prizes!), you’ll be wined & dined, inspired and treated like the VIP you were always meant to be!

While you’re at I Do!, make sure to pose for a pic in front of our amazing backdrop from Balushka Paper Floral Artistry, enjoy gourmet eats from Jackson and Company Catering and Café Natalie Catering, and indulge in mini treatments and demos from our fantastic beauty pros. And, of course, you’re invited to dance to the music of Scott Graham Piano and DJ LG Entertainment, and chat one-on-one with Houston’s top wedding vendors, in jewelry, cakes, flowers, attire, planning, invitations, photography, videography, honeymoon and destination travel…and more!

Here’s what to know before you GO to I Do!:

DO bring your besties, your spouse-to-be, your family members and valued opinion-givers—the I Do! Wedding Soiree is no mere wedding show, it’s an evening of fun, food, drink and beautiful displays everywhere you look!

DO bring your mobile device, and be prepared to Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat…and take part in our special on-site social media contests!

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!

WOW, What a Show!

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

If you were one of those fortunate (and savvy) enough to have attended last Thursday’s utterly magnificent I Do! Wedding Soiree at The Corinthian, you experienced first-hand the all-encompassing splendor of Houston’s ONLY true luxury wedding event and VIP bride/groom cocktail bash.

If you weren’t present for Thursday’s festivities, well…let us give you a little glimpse of what you missed.

WOW, What a Show!

We’re so thrilled to have benefited from the talents of the following show contributors, without whom we could not have put on this one-of-a-kind wedding fantasyscape and sumptuous fete: EB Inc. Event Rentals & Design, LBL Event Rentals & Design, Johanna Terry Events, DJU Productions, LG Entertainment, Scott Graham Piano, and our awesome show photographer (and top Houston-area wedding photography studio!) Civic Photos, whose pix we’re featuring here.

From the moment our guests entered the majestic Corinthian in downtown Houston, they knew they were in for something special, as they encountered floral-and-finery flights of fantasy from the likes of Plants N’ Petals, Todd Events, Flora & Eventi, Darryl & Co., Johanna Terry Events, Nuage Designs, Inc., EB Inc. Event Rentals & Design, LBL Event Rentals and Flowers of Kingwood.

Helping couples to refine their wedding-day vision, and coordinate the details of their big day, planners Kat Creech Events, A Day to Remember and Cocomar Ladies met one-on-one with attendees, and showed plenty of examples of the incredible Houston wedding celebrations they’ve brought to life for their grateful clients.

And just in case they weren’t sure whether they’d prefer a head of flowing waves or a glam updo, a sun-kissed glow or shimmering bare shoulders, a full set of lush lashes or just a bit of enhancement, our guests could experiment with looks, get advice and try out products from Nyoka Gregory Beauty, WINX Lash Studio, KAX Tanning Souffle and Hotze Health & Wellness Center.

Of course, no wedding-day look is complete with the right…sparkle. And guests found oodles of glimmer and shine (and a few VERY substantial rocks), at the dazzling displays put on by Peran & Scannell Jewelers, and Donoho’s Jewellers.

We are so thrilled to have had the honor to celebrate and serve so many Houston couples, and their friends and family, at this month’s extraordinary I Do! Wedding Soiree. From food and drink, to stunning tablescapes, to beautiful exhibitor displays, to luxury swag bags and superb door prizes (including our hold-your-breath giveaway of 5 nights’ luxury oceanfront accommodation at Bermuda’s fabulous Pompano Beach Club), the Feb. 4 I Do! Wedding Soiree was an absolute knockout.

We welcome you to post, pin, tag, share and comment on photos, and, if you attended Thursday’s show, let us know what you DISCOVERED, what you LOVED, and what you’d RECOMMEND to Houston brides and grooms starting on the journey to planning the perfect wedding.

Thank you…and HAPPY PLANNING!

2015 Client Appreciation Party at La Colombe d’Or by Civic Photos

Friday, August 21st, 2015

They create the most incredible celebrations in town. So each year, we celebrate them, with a pull-out-all-the-stops party where Houston’s top wedding pros can let their hair down (or tease it wayyyyy out, as pictured below), dance, dine, and get fabulously festive with friends, colleagues and the staff of Weddings in Houston magazine. This year’s Client Appreciation Party, with its ’70s-Glam theme design from Darryl & Co., and fantastic disco soundtrack, courtesy of DJU Productions, transformed regal venue La Colombe d’Or into a Studio 54-inspired nightclub…and transformed an enthusiastic crowd of Houston’s most talented wedding vendors and experts into a hip-shaking, down-getting, conga-lining bunch of boogie queens and kings that only stepped away from the dance floor to refuel on themed cocktails, fine food…and delicious cake from the amazing Susie’s Cakes & Confections. Oh, and also: There were rollerskates.

Check out party pix from the wonderful Barett and Saul of Civic Photos…and be sure to scroll down to see our “Best Costume” winners: Lee Capetillo of A Memorable Event, and Lisa Hudson of Hotel ZaZa!!

Blush, Ivory & Silver Wedding at Omni Houston Hotel

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

“It was Christmas Eve 2013. Tristan said he had a gift ornament for me hanging on the tree. On the front it read, “Our first Christmas together,” and on the back was a bride and groom. I turned around and he was on one knee asking to spend the rest of our Christmases together,” says Autumn. So sweet, right? A year later, Autumn wed Tristan in a lace Pronovias gown from Parvani Vida Bridal & Formal and celebrated with 165 of their nearest and dearest at the Omni Houston Hotel. Favorite moment? “Dancing with all of our family and friends,” Autumn says. Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!
