Monique’s Visit to The Wedding Salon

I’m loving every last minute of being engaged! Looking through bridal magazines and a pinning stuff on my Pinterest wedding board helps me gather ideas for the big day! What else can I do next to dream up more ideas? Go to a wedding expo!

Earlier this month I attended an elegant wedding expo in Beverly Hills called The Wedding Salon at the SLS Hotel. Even though I’m not getting married until 2014 I thought it would be great to go and get inspired! I enjoyed tasting cocktails, coffee, cupcakes and chocolates as I browsed table decorations, dresses and invitations. I spoke with wedding planners, travel agents and dress designers as models in dresses walked around. I picked up lots of free swag including a tote bag, Southern California issue of The Knot, bracelet, bath bomb and lots of literature about each vendor I visited.

Model outside showing a beautiful designer dress. Again, not something I would go for, but I can appreciate the beauty.

Two models show off two types of dresses.

I’m going towards the succulent theme and this table setting really caught my attention.
Succulents mixed with pink roses.
Purple beautiful large center piece. Bloomingdale’s table.
Elegant wedding invitations with lace, bling and pearls. Lavender Paperie.

I came home and sorted through it all and checked out websites. I saved what seemed relevant to me or caught my attention to look at again later once I enter the planning stages. It is so fun to dream about my wedding  day and before I know it I’ll need to make some real decisions about all this. For now I’m having a blast and taking my time!
