Calgary Wedding Fair 2013

A few weeks back on January 20, 2013, we attended the Wedding Fair, amongst some of Calgary ‘s leading vendors and  exhibitors, held at the BMO Centre. Our day started out before the wee hours of sunrise – trying to sneak in the finishing touches before the doors opened.  Having had only a few sips of tea and banana for a quick power-up in the morning, the hall soon got busy as the eager brides, grooms, and support squads flooded in.

The entire week had been building up anticipation for our grand unveiling of our new brand, officially launching Urban Vogue Weddings & Events amid the flutter of social media buzz.  Our booth featured an oversized mock magazine cover with a QR code to our brand new UV website (just to be more environmentally friendly), as well as a welcoming open concept space, brightly yellow modern floral arrangements and understated yet luxurious Sweetheart Table for two. Eco-friendly and tech savvy UV water bottles become quite a mainstay and hit for staying hydrated during the day, as there was much to see and absorb amid the booths, demonstrations, and fashion shows.

Overall, it has been inspiring to have a further look at the culture and artistry that the industry brings out. We had a chance to make some new friends and answer many event-related inquiries from our visitors. Although the fair turnout had been huge, we were able to spot some familiar faces in the crowds, always a welcome sight.  A big “thank you” to all of our friends who came out to support us!  None of this would have been possible without the creative genius and talents from some of our favorite vendors.  Thank you Monica Petryk of Dahlia Floral Design for providing the cheerfully modern yellow floral centrepieces for our sweetheart table, Great Events Rentals and Milan Decor & Rentals for the tablescape staging & linens, Creative Weddings & Decor for the chic and fun stationary, and Starlite Rentals for the ambient uplighting.  We had an incredible UV team of rockstar associates for the day, Ricka, Iva, and Huda, whom we got to introduce to many of you!

Look for some exciting and helpful planning tips & inspiration headed your way, as we will be launching a few new projects and new columns to blog updates from our UV team.  March will be our inaugurate month for our monthly Give Back feature, so stay tuned and connected with us on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

Love & Inspiration,

Joyce & Samantha
