Anchored 2017: Toledo's Bridal Show Alternative
Join Us at Anchored!
The week is finally here! This Saturday, we're bringing together some of our favorite wedding vendors to offer couples like you an alternative to the traditional bridal show with Anchored - Toledo’s Bridal Show Alternative. We’re focusing on providing an enjoyable atmosphere that will feel more like a date night than a crowded, stressful attempt at wedding planning.
When we got together with Brigitta from La Boutique Nostalgie last year to plan the inaugural event, we knew we wanted to create a relaxed, personalized event with curated vendors that fit our couple’s unique style. We wanted a no-pressure event where our couples could feel comfortable to hang out, grab a drink, and get to know us more. We loved the idea of offering stations where our vendors could show off their work in an interactive setting. Last year, we found this was a hit at the brow and braid bars and the flower crown station.
We were so thrilled at the success of Anchored 2016 and have had so much fun planning 2017’s event with even more interactive-ness for you! You’ll enjoy a cocktail and appetizers while listening to live music, dabbling in string art, canvas painting, photobooth fun and more. The flower crowns will be returning and we’re adding some awesome giveaways from our wedding vendors. Winners will be drawn throughout the evening!
Most of all, we want our Anchored couples to get some unique inspiration for their own weddings. Again this year, we’ll feature a model couple showing off some gorgeous formal wear during a faux wedding ceremony with Toledo Wedding Officiant, a first dance and a little twist on the traditional cake cutting (hello, donuts!!). We love getting to know our couples on a personal level, and our favorite aspect of Anchored is the opportunity for us to meet you! We are happy to answer any and all of your questions - from engagement sessions to videography - and share some tips and tricks that will help make planning your wedding less stressful.
So who exactly is Anchored anyway? And why do we love them? Great question! We think you should come find out for yourself. We believe our couples deserve the best and we have no doubt they you will get just that from this group of vendors. Scroll down to see what you have to look forward to on Saturday and, in the meantime, go visit their websites to learn more!
So if you, like us, enjoy a good night out for a drink and live music, if you want to meet some awesome local wedding vendors and get some inspiration for your wedding, if you want to come chat with us and talk wedding photography, make your way to The Blarney Event Center on Saturday from 5p-9p.
