New Orlean's first modern wedding show featuring design-focused entrepreneurs and local business is happening. 

The Swoon Event

On August 19, 2018, brides-to-be and engaged couples are invited to attend this amazing New Orleans wedding show. Whether you're seeking a luxury wedding or you're wanting to have a DIY wedding from top to bottom, it's still about that personal touch. The Swoon Event will not only be great for wedding inspiration for all brides, but will be the perfect opportunity to connect with New Orleans wedding vendors, creative entrepreneurs and small businesses that will help to bring all of your wedding visions to life.

Yummy bites from Ace Hotel, a bubbles bar, tasty treats from Chasing Wang and Salt + Light Pastry Studio, live music from Groovy 7, blow outs by Bleu Blow Dry Bar, make-up touch ups by Verde Beauty Studio, new bridal collections by Wedding Bellas, as well as calligraphy by Ebb & Flow Ink, chic floral from Kim Starr Wise, decor from Distressed Rentals, photography, wedding design and so much more, this is far more than your typical wedding show -- it's an experience you're truly going to enjoy with your bridesmaids, your hubby to be or your family.

Why Wedding Shows Are A Must for Engaged Couples | #WeddingShowWeekend2017 - Country Club Receptions

What is better than attending a bridal show and meeting some of the most amazing wedding professionals who are going to help make your wedding day a dream? Doing all of that over #WeddingShowWeekend2017 AND winning a $10,000 dream wedding!

Yep, you heard it right. Country Club Receptions is hosting 40 wedding shows this March 11th and 12th at country clubs and golf courses all across the nation!

They’re giving away one Grand Prize $10,000 Dream Wedding and over $10,000 in other wedding giveaways for all of the couples attending.

Click the button below to search for wedding shows in your area and to RSVP. Then don't forget to enter the sweepstakes separately to be eligible to win!

And I know that giveaways are always an added bonus but there are three reasons why every couple needs to attend a bridal show while planning their wedding:


1. Meet wedding professionals all in one place.

Half of the work in getting your wedding vendors booked are setting up appointments to meet each of them in person. Now that’s a lot of appointments to make! But with over 1,000 vendors in attendance, you can meet so many all in one place over one weekend. Now that’s the definition of convenience.


2. Check out potential wedding venues.

There’s nothing better than seeing a wedding venue with an actual event going on so wedding weekend is the perfect time to tour! It’s hard to visualize an empty space so if you love how it looks that weekend, I am sure you will love how your wedding day looks in that space even more!


3. Have some fun!

Weddings are all about the marriage so make it a date! Take your fiance or take your bridesmaids and there’s a fun weekend of planning all ready for you! And I promise, you’ll have a blast!

What is bridal wars?

Bridal wars is like a bridal show where brides get to meet potential wedding vendors but instead of walking around to booths, we get to play games! Sounds pretty sweet, huh? Each vendor will have a game prepared for you and your bridesmaids to compete for some super fun prizes.

And brides, listen up. One of the BEST ways to choose your wedding vendors is to choose people you like. It's not easy to tell if you like someone after a 30 second conversation over a booth, so this is the perfect way to actually interact with potential vendors and see you who mesh with well. If you like your wedding vendors, you're going to have an amazing wedding planning experience...I promise!

If you are a bride and want to form a team and have a fun day with your bridesmaids, family, and friends, sign up below.
And if you are a wedding professional and want to be part of a super fun bridal show where you actually get to interact with brides-to-be, there is more information below:

We've got some great testimonials at the link below and if you'd like more information or have any questions at all, you can email me at
I cannot wait to meet all of you in November!
