The Wedding Wednesday Cocktail Hour kick off took place on October 17 at Crawford’s shop and had several vendors on hand for clients to meet and see their offerings first hand and talk with vendors to plan their upcoming weddings. Wedding specific vendors have been invited to display their business and include A Touch of Class Limousines, Breasia Studios, Barefoot Digital Images, Color Print Outlet, Patricia’s Professional Photos, Dress the Drink, Kyndall Ty’relle Edible Décor, Windsor Neckwear, Continuum Image Consultants, LeMon Delights, Black Bag Travel and several others.
The first Wedding Wednesday Cocktail Party for 2013 will take place on Wednesday, February 20 from 7:30pm to 9:30pm at the Sheraton Washington North, 4095 Powder Mill Road, Beltsville, MD. Admission and parking for attendees will be complimentary with a cash bar and each attendee will receive a special Wedding Wednesday bridal swag bag filled with coupons and other wedding related gifts. “The Sheraton Washington North is the perfect location for hosting the midweek cocktail party and it gives us an opportunity to display the property,” said Amelia Sinclair, Director of Catering for the hotel. Sinclair goes on to say that “being right off of Interstate 95 in Beltsville, we are sometimes a “best kept secret” in the area and believe that the Wedding Wednesday cocktail parties we will host in February, May and October will change that in 2013.” The Sheraton will offer attendees tastings from their cocktail party and wedding reception menus, Kyndall Ty’relle Edible Décor will feature its Kyntini’s or alcohol infused martini cupcakes, LeMon Delights will feature wedding cakes and Dress the Drink will feature their unique spin on reception beverages.
Moss and Crawford, both of whom are certified wedding planners, agreed that there had to be a better way for brides and vendors to connect. Both noted, “Traditional bridal shows often leave brides feeling overwhelmed, exhausted and as if they have no control or clue about what they really want for their wedding, and the Wedding Wednesday Cocktail Hour aims to change that by giving brides the opportunity to plan, taste, drink, shop and have fun while planning.”
