Recap of the Holiday Inn – Route 66 Bridal Show August 24 2013

Saturday was the Holiday Inn – Route 66 Bridal Show and it was a wonderful time to meet many new couples who are newly engaged.  BrideStLouis.com extends a warm welcome to all the brides who recently opted-in at the show.  We’re glad to have you as part of our community.


And what a great day it was.  Brides and guests were treated to champagne upon arrival.  Because some brides were unable to attend, I have recapped a few vendors that made this day very special.


Ice Visions with a beautiful ice sculpture (www.icevisions.com); Patrick Pope Photography (www.PatrickPopePhotography.com) offered a $500.00 discount on the Silver or Gold Packages; Alex Waldbart Florist (www.alexwaldbartflorist.com) had a fabulous floral display and graced the tables with exquisite centerpieces; and Connie Dunglin’s Specialty Linen & Chair Cover Rental (www.cdlinen.com) adorned the ballroom with beautiful linens and chair covers.     Everything look amazing!





Guest enjoyed both a potato bar with lots of delicious toppings and an Italian pasta bar.  Wedding Wonderland (www.weddingwonderlandcakes.com) satisfied everyone’s sweet tooth with delicious cake tastings.  The food was delicious and plentiful.


Holiday Inn – Route 66 (formerly known as the Holiday Inn Viking Southwest) at 10709 Watson Rd presented their new menus and package programs.  Brides booking their wedding within 10 days of the show can receive a CASH DISCOUNT of up to $600.00 toward any of the other wedding vendors from the show.  Holiday Inn Route 66 is under new leadership and they are eager to help you plan your perfect wedding day.   They would be honored to host your special day.  Contact Sarah or Nicolette at 314-821-6600 for additional information.
