"Brides have many questions concerning their wedding day and this intimate and private event will serve as a place to get answers," explains Karima Renee, "Traditionally at trunk-shows and expos the bride doesn’t have the chance for a personal experience. Those events are attended by hundreds or a few thousands and vendors don’t have the opportunity to engage each attendee."
The icing on the wedding cake? Each bride will have the opportunity to try out the trends at the event. Express mobile spa services (manicures, makeup applications, blow outs, up-dos and more) will be available for the brides to receive. In addition, bridal-inspired desserts and specialty Smirnoff Cocktails will be served for the ladies to indulge before the big day. The great take away for the brides, an exclusive gift bag with products and gift cards from all of our featured vendors and sponsors.
"We want brides to leave BNOPhilly feeling empowered and confident, in both their purchases and the information they received," says Karima Renee of Skinny Minority.
Tickets can be purchased via Eventbrite. A bride's single ticket is $10 and her "+1" is $15.
"We encourage newly engaged brides, brides who are six to twelve months away from their wedding date, brides who haven't gone dress shopping, and brides who are looking for creative ideas for their wedding to attend Bridal Night Philly...in essence ALL brides!" says B. Wilson.
