While faraway fetes make for incredibly memorable marriage ceremonies, we can't help but appreciate the benefits of local nuptials. Not only are they convenient, but they often showcase SoCal's local talent. And, more often than not, nearby events are easier on the wallet — which is why we couldn't keep Monday's bridal expo under wraps.
The Wedding Salon (aka the premiere luxury bridal show with Martha Stewart's backing) will take over the SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills along with a slew of L.A. vendors this Monday. Gowns by R-Mine Bridal, Winnie Couture, Nicole Miller, and Anthropologie’s BHLDN will be on display, Hansen’s Cakes will pass out tastes of its celeb-approved sweets, and TAO will host a bachelorette suite complete with cocktails. And, you won't be leaving empty-handed: There are honeymoon giveaways galore, and swag bags packed with beauty goodies from Frederic Fekkai, TIGI, and more.
By now, you're probably asking yourself: What does something like this cost? Nada, for R29 readers! For a pair of comped tickets for you and a guest (a $75 value), RSVP with the code REF29C here. That ticket will also score you admission to the VIP TAO Bachelorette Bride’s Night Out event on Tuesday, March 26 at the Montage Beverly Hills. Trust, you will be remembering this day for the rest of your life, too.
When: Monday, March 25, 4 to 8 p.m.
Where: SLS Hotel at Beverly Hills, 465 South La Cienega Boulevard (at San Vicente Boulevard); 310-247-0400.
