Just 2 More Days!

We are just 2 days away from “Engaged! For Sweethearts” and I hope that everyone has February 16, 2014 marked on their calendar.  Our event is at the Holiday Inn – Route 66, 10709 Watson Road, St. Louis, MO 63127 from 12 noon to 4 pm.

The fun begins as 12 noon with champagne w/orchids and wonderful music from Dragon Duo.  Our workshop/seminar is unlike any other bridal show in town.  We have entertainment – Lamar Pilsing will sing several wonderful selections and a little later, after an exquisite fashion show presented by Artizta Bridal & Formal Wear, we have a laser light show presented by Fullhouse Productions; we have 12 FREE Seminars (see list below); and we have some terrific grand prizes, including a $500 honeymoon package from The Honeymoon Gal and a Five Senses Basket from the Holiday Inn (Valued at $350).  Plus visit with 53 of the most amazing vendors.  See and experience fabulous décor to spark your creative soul by Adorned Occasions and Ree-Dun Imagination.

Everyone will have a FUN TIME and learn everything they need to know to plan their own dream wedding.  Get out of the house, the weather should be fine, and come visit with us.  Plus, 50% of all registration fees will be donated to No Kill Animal Shelters.  (And we will have some puppies there that you can adopt that day!)
