Charleston Weddings Magazine Spring Bridal Show 2012 {Ticket Giveaway}

Charleston Weddings Magazine Spring Bridal Show 2012 {Ticket Giveaway}

There is a hum in the air this weekend as everyone prepares for the biggest fashion event of the year, Charleston Fashion Week.  However, even with a week full of the latest fashion, upcoming designers, and swanky parties, it’s the last runway of the week that has us giddy with anticipation!  The Charleston Wedding’s Spring Bridal Show is a day bursting with bridal beauty overload. Between decor and design by Gathering Floral + Event Design, and a runway full with the latest looks brought to us by Maddison Row, Bella Bridesmaid, Lula Kate, and a few others, we’re completely beside ourselves. We asked Lindsey Nowak of MR what we can look forward to seeing this year on the runway.  “We have really focused on incorporating color into our show this year for a more vibrant feel”, says Nowak. Katherine McDonald of Lula Kate informed us that she will be be showing three new styles of bridesmaid dresses in new fabrics as well as three new Little White Dresses! Her ‘Bergman’ dress, made of a alluring combination of sequins, feathers, and lace is what she’s most excited to show.  “It’s a little unexpected, but lots of fun”, says McDonald. We also got the inside scoop from Charleston Weddings Magazine editor, Melissa Bigner on how they pull this incredible event off year after year. “Believe it or not, we started planning pretty much right after the 2011 event”, says Bigner. This year they’ve worked hard with the talented ladies of Gathering Floral + Event Design to create a garden inspired show.  When we asked her what her favorite part of the CFW Bridal Show is she said, “Aside from the backstage melée of models and gowns and hair and makeup, aside from meeting readers, and aside from seeing Heather’s décor, I am SO EXCITED about two BIG surprises we’ve got planned—one to open the show and one to close it out. What a tease! Trust me, it’s killing me.”

It’s killing us too, Melissa! And to add the cherry to the top of this inside scoop TWR is giving away 2 tickets to the event courtesy of Charleston Weddings Magazine! Leave your comment below for a chance to win.  We will select the lucky reader on Thursday!
