I had the honour of being invited to participate in the annual Bridal Boudoir with one of Montreal’s great wedding planners, Madeline Kojakian of Maddy K. This was unlike any wedding show I had ever participated in. It touched on all senses and both fascinated and inspired. I could never get all the beauty and loveliness in one blog post, but I would love to start with sharing some of my favorite Wedding dresses from White in Toronto and Della Sposa in Montreal that featured Oscar de la Renta, Marchesa and Vera Wang. The fashion show was unbelievable…starting with a bang as a contortionist and an acrobat were intermixed for a little dash of sass! I truly loved being surrounded by the amazing talented wedding vendors in Montreal…they were truly among the most stylish and amazing!
The Montreal Gazette describes the event as follows:
“Maddy K is hardly tossing away the multi-tier wedding cake, but Maddy K is offering an alternative to the 100-plus vendor wedding trade shows, which she says are overwhelming and “stuck in the ’80s. Alternatively, at the intimate-style Bridal Boudoir Affair, brides-to-be and their female entourage can get to know caterers, florists, dress designers and photographers that Maddy K has selected. She says these vendors reflect Montreal’s true talent, and can translate a bride’s vision in an inspired and professional manner.”
We have all been to wedding shows that leave you feeling burnt out rather than inspired…and truly, these one leaves you breathless, inspired and overwhelmed only with the many ways you could express your unique style on your wedding day.
