Whew . . . I am delighted to share that Imagine That Events just concluded our 9th Annual Wedding Show A Wedding Affair at the River Rock Casino Resort. With over 50 wedding vendors, our boutique wedding show specializes in helping you make your special day awesome!
Since the beginning, we have striven to be an informative, quality wedding show where brides and their guests can feel welcome to find ideas in a no-pressure environment. Many of our vendors have been with us for over 5 years now and already re-booked for next year! Our show format is a bit different than the traditional wedding show. Sticking to the relaxed, boutique style format we have an “aisle with style” fashion component. Thanks to Numa Modelling Agency and Angeline’s Bridal Boutique who worked closely with our team member Edmond to create a fun and fashionable atmosphere. The models got to strut their stuff before taking our traditional “LOVE” shot in front of the BU Letters
This year was particularly exciting for us as Sharon and I were stoked to have just found out we were voted Best Wedding Planner in the Westender’s “Best of the City”. We then heard that Global News wanted to come by the wedding show and do an interview discussing wedding planning. Nerve wracking, exciting, overwhelming, really there are no words!
With the support and feedback from our amazing team of friends, family, and staff, we learn each year to make the next better. The day is full from dawn to dusk and every moment is worth seeing the happy smiling faces as brides start roaming the aisles. I like to walk around the room to check in with all of our vendor friends and introduce myself to the new additions to A Wedding Affair. A big part of the show is the relationships that we build and maintain amongst the vendors and ourselves.
A huge thank you to each and every vendor who made the time to make our show beautiful and one of the best wedding events in the Lower Mainland. The time and effort they each put into their booths truly amazes me year after year.
Another special thank you to all of our Grand Prize supporters and donations – many excited brides eagerly anticipated the Grand Prize draw thanks to each of you! Our winner this year had never won anything in her life so she could not believe it when her name was called and could barely contain her excitement.
Stay tuned for details for 2018 as we will celebrate our 10th anniversary of A Wedding Affair. We are already brainstorming on how to make it bigger and better than ever!! Anything is possible if you dare to imagine…
