Creme de la Creme.Posted: 11/09/2011
My girl Jenna and I had the pleasure of scoring tickets (thanks Val!) to the luxurious, Creme de la Creme Grand Wedding Showcase at the Four Seasons on Sunday. The sold out event was lavishly put on by Soha Lavin from Countdown Events and if you’ve ever been to any of Soha’s functions, you just know it won’t disappoint. This event is highly anticipated by brides-to-be as it showcases over-the-top bridal gowns, chair covers, centrepieces, custom cake houses, prestigious lifestyle services, you name it — aka the “creme de la creme”. I was lucky enough to catch the fashion show put on by Blush Bridal, the only store in Vancouver to carry Vera Wang gowns, and it was like my dream come true. Actually, the whole event was my dream come true. Beautifully-crafted wedding dresses, Thomas Haas macarons, raspberry cheesecake cake pops, truffles, marshmallows, free swagger — I was basically on a semi-permanent sugar high for the endurance of the show. It was also equally entertaining to gawk at all the bridezillas at the event. The only part I regretted about the function was not bringing my camera. And obviously, the lack of single guys at the event.. ha!
