The problem with most wedding-planning events is kind of like the problem with some weddings: they're so complicated that they're just not fun. But why can't preparing for the happiest day of your life be a red carpet experience, where you and your fiancée can relax and sample upscale food, drink and music while meeting the best professionals in the wedding business? That's the idea behind Your Night Out: An Upscale Event For Those In Love, a different kind of bridal show happening September 27th at Noor in Pasadena. With a vibe that's more "date night" than "trade show," Your Night Out promises to make wedding planning as fun as the special day itself.
Presented by Noor and Haute Couture Events, the same team who produced last year's BizBash West Expo Pre-Party, Your Night Out challenges the conventional, stale, and entirely bride-centric idea of a bridal event by presenting a completely couples-oriented, relaxed and hip atmosphere where brides and grooms are equally catered to. Instead of the standard Sunday afternoon bridal show in a conference room at some charmless airport hotel, Your Night Out will take full advantage of the stylish beauty of Noor, the "Best Of Pasadena 2011" winner for Best Wedding/Banquet Hall and Pasadena Magazine's "City's Best Stylized Venue 2012."
Guests will enjoy high-end entertainment such as a couture fashion show from R-Mine Bespoke, food from the area's top wedding caterers, and a full night of music to dance to. And while the purpose of the evening is still to have a chance to meet everyone from florists to invitation printers, Haute Couture Events has taken the worst part of it out of your hands by personally selecting each vendor for their quality, hip sensibility, and reputation. And best of all, the first 50 couples to arrive will be given a loaded swag bag, complete with luxurious treats, coupons and freebies.
Your Night Out has already been declared a can't miss event by authorities in the wedding business like California Wedding Day magazine, and tickets are going fast. If you're getting married anytime in the near future but dreading the drudgery of boring, traditional planning, do yourself and your fiancée a big favor and get your tickets for Your Night Out: An Upscale Event For Those In Love today. Tickets are only $20 per couple (or $15 for individuals) and can be purchased online via ItsMySeat.com or over the phone at 877.704.2820. Your wedding is supposed to be the happiest day of your life; why not have a great time planning it, too?
