Calling all brides, future-brides, wedding fanatics and hopeless romantics: the wedding event of the season has arrived in Calgary! Grab your bridesmaids, family members and female friends so that you can scout out this year’s hottest fashions and newest trends at this annual event. Returning for its fifteenth and largest year yet, the 2019 Boutique Bridal Show is one you won’t want to miss!
On February 24, Bridal Fantasy will be hosting two stunning fashion shows at the Grey Eagle Event Centre, displaying the latest trends in gowns, flowers, formals, hair, make-up and all things wedding-related. Not only do you get an insider-scoop on what’s trending in the wedding fashion world, but there are over thousands in prizes and gifts just waiting to be won, including the grand prize of a Fantasy Honeymoon in Mexico, courtesy of Champagne Weddings and Travel. This beautiful honeymoon for two includes seven nights all-inclusive at the luxurious Palace Resorts in Mexico with roundtrip economy fares provided by Air Canada Vacations. Be waited on hand-and-foot at this oceanfront resort with swim-up bars, nightly entertainment, fabulous dining and picturesque beaches as you bask in the 30-degree heat with a colourful cocktail in hand.
But don’t worry, this event isn’t all about looking at beautiful dresses on the runway and dreaming about hot honeymoons. With over 80 booths at this event, you and your gals will be floating around the room between fashion shows, spotting the best deals and new decor ideas for your special day. Browse Bridal Fantasy’s famous gowns at reduced rates of up to 60% off this weekend only, in partnership with Bridal Fashion Group and Ethos Bridal. Each bride will receive Bridal Fantasy Magazine’s newest issue as well as their Wedding Planner & Survival Guide for free – because we all know how stressful weddings can be! Make sure you save time for a complimentary massage, courtesy of MaKami College, because nothing says relaxation like a head, neck and back massage in the middle of the day.
Bridal Fantasy The Boutique Bridal Show will run from 10am-4pm on February 24,2019, with the fashion shows taking place at 12pm and 2pm. This allows for browsing and shopping before and after the shows, in case you’re inspired by something you spot on the runway. The event will be held at the Grey Eagle Event Centre and parking is free! Tickets can be purchased at the door or online at the Bridal Fantasy website for only $25. For every ticket purchased, the bride will receive coupons that can be redeemed for exclusive discounts with vendors throughout the event. These will be provided at the door with ticket purchases and found within your bridal bag upon entering the show. And all of this for only $25! Just imagine if you came home with a dress, colour scheme, photographer, decor ideas AND a fantasy honeymoon – your honey will truly be over the moon!
