Washingtonian Bride & Groom’s annual wedding showcase, Unveiled 2018, is just days away and tickets are on sale now.
The event is the perfect opportunity for brides and grooms-to-be to sip champagne while mixing and mingling with dozens of the area’s top weddings vendors. Small bites will be provided by the host venue—the stunning Mandarin Oriental DC—accompanied by treats from the area’s leading caterers and bakers.
This year’s show includes a series of informative breakout panels where attendees can sit in on conversations among wedding experts covering everything from wedding planning 101 to budgeting, 2018 dress trends, and how to choose the right photographer. Just outside of the panel room, the grooms’ lounge features live music, cigar rolling, and a Dewar’s Scotch bar.
Back in the main ballroom, florists and bakers will be offering live demonstrations. As part of the ticket price, attendees can also experience a host of unique sources of entertainment. Attendees can have their lips read—an experience much like a palm reading—by a lipsologist; two local artists (Cris Clapp Logan and Make Things Company) will be on hand to create custom illustrations; after grabbing a drink from the bar, guests can have a personalized haiku written for them by local poets; Pretty Mail Calligraphy will be available to write custom notes; and for an extra sweet treat, Fluffness will be serving up gourmet cotton candy and Ice Cream Jubilee will be dishing up ice cream.
Throughout the Unveiled 2018 day, thousands of dollars in door prizes will be awarded to a few lucky attendees, live music will entertain in all areas of the event, and just after 2 p.m., a premiere runway show, featuring more than two dozen dresses from The Bridal Room, will conclude the event.
Tickets are $65 and available online. Unveiled 2018 the wedding planning event of the year.
