The Wedding Salon NYC - 2009

So, I was sitting around Monday all day don't feel like hauling it into NYC to attend the show. But, at about 6:00 pm, I decided to get myself together and make the trip. Boy am I glad I did!

As usual, The Wedding Salon never disappoints. Long touted as THE luxury bridal show, this year's show was filled with glitter and glam - just they way I like it. The one thing I look forward to when attending this show, is all the inspiration I get from the tablescapes, the gowns, the lighting and draping, and on and on....

Last year, I got to see Colin Cowie which was pretty cool...this year, I got up close to David Tutera. Never actually met him, but seems like a pretty cool dude. He was really sweet to all his fans, patiently signing autographs, taking pictures, and having real conversations with them. And as an event designer, he's pretty diverse and're just never quite sure what he's going to come up with, but it's always FABULOUS!

My big thing when planning weddings is the tablescape....gone are the days of ivory and champagne colors. Now the hot trend is rich color and texture! And flowers are not the only option anymore!

David hosted a fashion show, featuring his gowns by Faviana. They were lovely and not your run-of-the-mill wedding gowns. Very refreshing.

Congratulations to the producers of The Wedding Salon....once again, job well done!

So glad you stopped by my blog. Nashville is a pretty busy place for weddings but NOTHING like NEW YORK CITY!!! Just tonight I went to an open house & will go to another tomorrow, but it dosen't compare to what you do.
Still, it's great fun (and hard work at times) and Nashville really gets into the party/wedding thing.
I'll be posting this weeks events on my blog by Friday.
Speaking of blogs...yours is such an inspiration! I'm adding you to my bella blog roll & twitter as well.
Do you ever find your way down South? To Nashville? If you plan a trip, I'd love to show you around. We have lots of things to do & they don't all have to do with country music! hahaha
I'll be checking in with you.
Have a wonderful upcoming weekend.
