From cake tasting to wedding photographers to beauty experts - all wedding vendors were well represented at the Wicker Park Bridal show in January. I was there with my Region Weddings booth where we gave away a Chicago Sessions Engagement Package.
Wedding cakes are always plentiful at these shows and it's a great way to see how they will look in the environment of a reception hall such as the Wicker Park Social Center in Highland.
One of my favorites is this vintage style cake with retro looking white flowers...
Of course, the main reason a wedding photographer like myself is at shows like this is to show off my work in person and also meet brides to be. It's usually a bit noisy so I encourage prospective clients to schedule a meeting so I can hear all about your wedding. It's only been a week and I've already booked with one couple from the show. The entire month of January has been a booking frenzy so please don't delay in contacting me to set up your very own meeting.
My booth was right next to a string quartet that played some soothing classical pieces. They would make a classy addition to any wedding ceremony or wedding reception dinner.
Bridal fashions were on hand with everything from dresses, veils and foot wear such as these sexy high heeled pumps...
This year's show, as always, was sponsored by Brides Guide Magazine - the longest running bridal publication in Northwest Indiana and Chicago.
So, after you say "yes" and before you both say "I do", check out a local bridal show. The next one is scheduled for February 26th at Glenwoodie Golf Course in Glenwood, Illinois. Please call 219-662-9245 for more information. I will be busy this date setting up my new portrait studio in Crown Point, so please contact me now as opposed to waiting for a show.
