Wedding Avenues is a unique take on the traditional Wedding Show, giving Mid-Missouri Brides a new wedding planning option. The first-ever Wedding Avenues took place in Columbia, MO on February 17th, 2013.
Brides, their mothers and entourage enjoyed visiting 11 stops, featuring 30+ vendors, throughout Columbia. The stops pulled Brides out of an overwhelming traditional show and into the actual studios and locations of wedding vendors. At the stops they visited with vendors in small groups and one-on-one. Brides received tips, advice, demos and samples. At one stop they may visit a photography studio and also sample wedding cake. Then at another stop visit a retail shop, learning about registries, and have a makeup demo.
The day was full of everything wedding, allowing the modern Bride to meet vendors without being overwhelmed It ended with a full Mock Reception at Kimball Ballroom, where Brides viewed tablescapes and event design, sampled cocktails and appetizers and received their amazing goodie bags.
We were fortunate to work with Silverbox Photography during the day to capture the experiences happening at many of the stops. ThenFresh Inspirations Photography joined us before and after at the Mock Reception to capture everything from design to party pics.
