Part 6 of my blog series on The WedLuxe Wedding Show focuses on our "Speakeasy Groom's Lounge."
This "Men Only" area of the show was 1920s prohibition-inspired, complete with vintage posters and our very own Jazz bar!
Guys enjoyed an assortment of manly treats catered by our host venue, The Fairmont Royal York, such as: Caplansky’s smoked brisket sliders, pickled tiger shrimp, white truffle butter popcorn, and cinnamon churros with whipped cream, mini-marshmallows and chocolate shavings. Yum!
The custom bar front decal for "The Jazz Bar" was designed by WedLuxe designer Rebekah Cuff and provided by Dance Floor Decor. The menu hang-tags and signage were created in-house here at WedLuxe. Enjoy!
Part 5 is all about our Deco Chic Beauty Bar! In this area of the show, we created a spa-like oasis where our attendees could be pampered with mini makeovers (either hair or makeup). Our title sponsor Moroccanoil had several stylists on hand and a host of makeup artists from Jackie Gideon Beauty Inc. provided makeup touch-ups and mini-consultations.
We used a cool (and sparkly!) paddle number system to manage the line-ups... it worked out really well. The other thing about this room that was pretty awesome was the spa-inspired appetizers and goodies provided courtesy of The Fairmont Royal York.
I can't think of anything more decadent than spa-time at a wedding show, can you? ;)
I will admit, I should have sprung for carpet in this room to conceal the green/red/yellow pattern. Nothing against the floor - it's ok for a different colour palette... but the white and light airyness of this room design would have looked WAY better with a neutral. (I know, I know)! Forgive me.
Part 4 of my blog series on The WedLuxe Wedding Show focuses on our "Gatsby's Garden Tea Room."
In this beautiful and elegant area of the show, our guests could relax and unwind with complimentary tea, beverages and treats in an environment that was designed to conjure up the grandeur and glamour of a Gatsby-style soirée.
The room was sponsored and catered by our host venue, The Fairmont Royal York, and admission was included for all of our guests. (BTW - show tickets sold for $35 in advance, $45 at the door).
The oversized posters dotting the walls were actually scanned from a vintage record collection that had once belonged to a grandparent of one of our staff members. We scanned them and then colorized them with shades of green/gold/black to match the room decor.
The table menus, signage, napkins, etc were all created in-house here at WedLuxe and were accented with oh, a few hundred sheets of gold glitter paper that we sourced from our friends at The Paper Place.
