On Sunday, June 14, we headed to The Peach State for the Your Wedding Experience by David Tutera live wedding event at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, GA. The bridal extravaganza is designed for engaged couples looking for wedding inspiration. The first in a series of events to come, YWE Atlanta brought out over 2,300 attendees in addition to a slew of bridal vendors that helped culminate the explosive event. Celebrity event planner and wedding visionary David Tutera, hosted the event alongside "Cake Boss" Buddy Valastro. Guests were inspired by vendors and industry experts from all over the country.
"Atlanta Exes" star Christina Johnson and fiance Willie Wallace sat front row at the Wedding Catwalk fashion show which featured over 60 bridal looks including David's wedding collection David Tutera for Mon Cheri. Brides-to-be indulged in a DIY Nail Bar by Something Turquoise, Sweetheart tablescape displays, as well as a Sweets Showcase which was judged by the Cake Boss himself.
With the help of some of our talented Atlanta Coterie Members and Barbados Tourism, we created the Girlfriends Lounge that offered something for every couple. EllyB Events designed our lounge space which displayed vibrant tablescapes complete with stunning floral arrangements and place settings. Modern white seating accessorized with pink pillows created an inviting space for guests to lounge.
Mia Farah Beautique headed the makeup beauty bar where guests had the opportunity to get their makeup done. Brides by Nona brought out a variety of beautiful bridal fashions that were displayed on mannequins. We satisfied every sweet tooth with cake tastings by not a crumb! and mini donut tastings from Sweet Dreams Mini Donuts; Buddy even stopped by to taste the savory donuts. TruBlue Travel had brides-to-be and couples thinking about after the wedding by offering honeymoon advice. While Barbados Tourism gave them an in-depth look at the stunning island.
