The next day was the Unveiled Bridal Show in Dallas. We had two booths and provided over 60 gowns for the fashion shows and the gown galleries. The show was beautifully laid out. Brides entered through a decorated ceremony area. There was a bridesmaid gallery, reception decor showcase, mothers’ gown gallery and a groom’s club. The vendors that participated stepped up to the plate and really provided some well done and tasteful booth decor. The main stage fashion show was awesome. The models that we met about a month ago were now made up and styled and looked like the total professional runway models that they are. Very impressive! The Unveiled Bridal Show returns to Dallas on Saturday, March 7.
There’s a new bridal show “Unveiled” in Dallas in October. We’re involved in the fashion shows and last Sunday six models flew in and were at both stores for gown selections and fittings. The interesting thing about fashion models “off duty” is how non-glamourous they look. We spent the entire day fitting tall size 2 girls into sample bridal gowns and bridesmaid dresses.
Tuesday night, we attended the AACWP annual bridal fashion show. This show featured bridal trends. When you see a “trend” show, the models are high glam and wearing gowns that are more conceptual than wearable. Fun to look at!
Last Friday we had a “green light” party with the folks from AMS Pictures. They’re the Dallas company producing the series “Girl Meets Gown” for WEtv and we were celebrating the green light given on 6 more episodes. It airs in 2010. We’ve got the film crew here every week and while that sounds like a lot of fun, it really is more like a lot of work. But it’s interesting and the brides that are featured are wonderful. The party was great except the margaritas were really lame. I think there wasn’t any tequila in it!
