Exciting news, guys and dolls. I am co-hosting ALIVE Magazine’s upcoming wedding event, ALIVE Wedding: Best Day Ever!
Wedding expos are a great way to score discounts and freebies, but the difference here is that ALIVE Wedding isn’t an expo — it’s a curated cocktail party for all brides- and grooms-to-be (as well as wedding parties and planners) with drinks, nibbles, friends, and freebies. Instead of getting in line at breakfast time on a Sunday in a hot convention center, head to the ritzy Boo Cat Club after work and grab a Pinnacle Vodka cocktail while you check out the latest in wedding trends, fashions, and ideas. While you’re there, keep an eye out for wedding pros Style My Aisle, who will share a fashion presentation at the party.
The event is Thursday, August 27 from 7 to 11 p.m. at the Boo Cat Club in St. Louis. Tickets are $25 and include cocktail samples, cake and catering tasting, access to vendors, door prizes, and more. Grab your tickets now; we have weddings to plan!
Thus far, event vendors include: Ces & Judy’s Catering, Trotter Photo of St. Louis, Photo Elegance, Moonrise Hotel, Hyatt Regency St. Louis at The Arch, Pappy’s Smokehouse, Vellum, Drury Plaza Hotel at the Arch, Hollyberry Baking and Catering Company, St. Louis Ballpark Village, PBR St. Louis, Christa Donald Photography, the St. Louis Cardinals, Macy’s, Washington University in St. Louis, Cater Al Fresco, Eye.Do STL, Callier’s Catering, Limitless Planet, and The Cheshire. Additionally, The Great Frame Up, Kendra Scott, Moonrise Hotel, and Billy Goat Chips are working with the #BestDayEverSTL team to create mad-rad gift bags, which will be given to the first 200 attendees.
Here’s what I am the most excited about: Y’know how wedding events typically come with fantastic prizes? My co-host, Amanda of Eat. See. Home., and I are behind a spectacular honeymoon-themed giveaway! This prize package is valued at more than $1,500, and includes honeymoon essentials from brands you love.
