How to hold a vintage wedding on BTV!

Yesterday was a fun day for all of us as we had the privilege to appear on Breakfast Television to promote our upcoming Vintage Wedding Showcase.

Rachelle and Shannon looked absolutely splendid in their authentic 1950s wedding gowns, complete with headpieces from BoutiqueJuJu and amazing bouquets from Sarah Mayerson Design.

Sarah also worked in collaboration with Colleen Walker of Blush Vintage Rentals to make this romantic Jane Austen inspired tabletop using wonderful vintage elements from milk and depression glass to a vintage camera. They also incorporated a darling vintage inspired engagement photo by Tara Whittaker Photography.

If you miss our segment, you can watch it here!

You can expect this and much more at the event on April 21st!! Tickets are $12 and available through Eventbrite, at A Vintage Affair or at the door!! See you then!!

The countdown begins toward The Vintage Wedding Showcase!!

So much is happening so quickly in preparation for April 21st for The Vintage Wedding Showcase!

Tomorrow is our appearance on Breakfast Television at 7:45am and Bonnie will talk about how to have a vintage themed wedding. We'll be showing two lovely authentic 1950s wedding dresses and Blush Vintage Rentals have designed an outstanding tabletop using a variety of Jane Austen inspired vintage elements. If you miss it, catch the video online on BTV's website

What are we looking forward to most at the show??? Well, let me tell you there is so much inspiration going on it is hard to choose. One new addition to our show is a gorgeous 1950's Chevy Deluxe on display outside which will make for a fabulous photo opportunity! Also, we are pleased to welcome a mini version of Lemondrop, a Calgary jazz group with songstress Heather Blush, who will perform alongside our 1920s styled Speakeasy Lounge by Blush Vintage Rentals. Just wondering, is it legal to bring that moonshine still and make some hooch at the event ;)

Tickets are $12 available through A Vintage Affair, at the door or through Eventbrite. We hope you'll spread the word about this unique event filled with everything "Vintage, Bridal & Fabulous!" See you there!
