It was a year of firsts for The 2012 Premier Bridal Event: first time hosting the event at the Glendale Hilton Hotel, first time having the show in March instead of November, first time having a dance performance as part of the entertainment, and first time hosting over 2,500 guests at our upscale bridal show!
If you couldn’t make it to this year’s show, or just want to refresh the experience, we’ve put together this blog with photos & video highlights so you can have a nice event recap!
This year’s bridal show took place on Sunday March 4th from 12-5pm at the Glendale Hilton Hotel. We had over 70 fabulous vendors present at the show and showcase their amazing work. When guests first walked in, they entered the foyer area that was beautifully decorated with piping & draping by White Night Design and gorgeous floral arrangements by Magnolia Village Flowers. Guests could also taste wedding cakes and choose their favorite flavors.
Upon entering the main Glendale Ballroom, guests had the opportunity to meet with all types of vendors, including photographers, DJs, jewelers, coordinators, and travel agents, etc. Every vendor did an amazing job with their booth design and made it a fun environment for all guests to browse. Next, guests spent time in the Brand Ballroom where they got even more inspiration about their wedding.
At 1:30 pm, guests heard traditional Armenian music and saw Vardan Aroutiounian and Group enter the ballroom playing the dhol, zurna and clarinet. For those not familiar with Armenian weddings, this music is typically played at Armenians weddings as the bride & groom enter the reception hall. Next, Marineh, co-founder of Harsanik.com, welcomed all of the guests to the 2012 bridal show, and introduced the talented Tigran Asatryan to the stage. Tigran surprised everyone by premiering a first dance song that he had never performed before in front of bridal show guests! He then sang 2 of his most popular songs which really livened up the audience and got guests dancing in their seats!
After Tigran’s energizing performance, Dynamic Duo Dance Studio took the stage and performed an amazing ballroom dance. Their dance routine left everyone stunned and interested to learn about the different dance lesson packages they offer!
Next up was the highly anticipated fashion show by Lovella Bridal, featuring the exclusive 2012 collection from Ines Di Santo! The models all looked even more gorgeous thanks to the hair & makeup by Hairspray Salon and they were draped in beautiful diamond jewelry provided by Vanna K Bridal & Fashion Jewelry!
Once the fashion show came to an end, guests resumed to browsing through the 2 ballrooms and the foyer meeting different vendors and getting inspired about their upcoming weddings & events! At 4:30pm, Marineh and Nara from Harsanik.com started the raffle and gave away amazing raffle prizes to many lucky bridal show guests! Some of the prizes includes $500 off gift certificates from each of the 3 DJs at DJ International, a free digital photo frame and photo shoot from Royal Gor Studios, taking home the beautiful centerpieces designed by Magnolia Village Flowers & Farabela's Touch, and more. And in honor of their 3rd year being a Platinum Sponsor of The Premier Bridal Event, Vanna K Bridal & Fashion Jewelry gave away 3 gift certificates to 3 lucky winners – including a 15%, 25%, and 35% off gift cards!
The show wrapped up at 5pm and guests left with many new vendor contacts and lots of inspiration about how they can make their wedding extra special using some of the great talent from the bridal show. Harsanik.com & Fancy That! Events were honored to partner with 70 of the most talented wedding vendors and welcome 2,500 guests to this year’s show! We thank everyone who was a part of the 2012 show and for helping us make the event an absolute success.
