If you are looking for ideas + vendors for your wedding and you’re in the OC area, you might want to check out The Bridal Fair By-The-Sea. So much goodness that the event has TWO dates! This Sunday, April 10th at Rancho San Clemente Tennis Club and on May 22nd at the Dana Point Yacht Club. The Bridal Fair By-The-Sea features 75 of the industry’s best wedding professionals including (as seen above) Archive Vintage Rentals, Krista Jon Couture Flowers, Jen O’Sullivan Photo, Courtside Catering, Chinnylulu Designs and many more! There is a great tasting menu including: Sushi Bar, Gourmet Food Stations throughout, Cake Tastings, Champagne Bar, Wine Bar, Poolside Martinis, and a Groom’s Lounge with Belgian Beer on tap. Oh, and another thing to entice your groom – they will have a Vintage Motorcycle Display! That sounds pretty rad to me and I know I could convince my hubby to go with that detail – and the free drinks. :)
Dozens of prizes will be handed out including a Caribbean Cruise and the $25,000 Dream Wedding Give-Away (details here on the website). They also have a great lineup of speakers for the April date including Ki Ki Lee Herr (talking about Environmentally Friendly Weddings), Jen O-Sullivan (Always Look Fabulous in Any Photograph You Ever Take) and Angie Kalayjian (How to Get Everything You Want in a Wedding Gown). For the May 22 event, celebrity wedding photographer Robert Evans (he photographed Tom + Katie’s wedding as well as Brad + Jen’s wedding) will be speaking and more to be announced!
