Planning a wedding can be overwhelming at times. But we have some solutions for you here at saratoga living. For one, our annual wedding edition, the “I Do” Issue, will be hitting newsstands on January 29, and you’ll be able to find many of the stories running in it on saratogaliving.com, too. Also, you’ll find inspiration in this week’s Calendar’s “Editor’s Pick.” This Sunday, January 27, the Spa City is hosting The Capital Region Premier Bridal Show, which will be held at the Hall of Springs and The Gideon Putnam in the Saratoga Spa State Park. The Capital Region Premier Bridal Show is the best opportunity for locals to meet and greet the area’s topnotch wedding professionals in every facet of planning their dream wedding. And we do mean every!
Guests to the bridal show will get to sip champagne and sample wedding cakes and delicious hors d’oeuvres while meeting and consulting with up to 130 exhibitors representing 30 different wedding locations and bridal boutiques throughout the Capital Region. There will be numerous wedding displays to stroll through featuring the most sought-after table settings and decorations, so you can start your bridal registry early. Talk with jewelers, hair and makeup artists, as well as the best wedding (and honeymoon) planners the Capital Region has to offer. Also present will be a bevy of professional musicians, lighting specialists, talented wedding photographers and videographers; and a number of wedding boutiques, sporting a huge selection of wedding gowns, bridal dresses and the latest in tuxedos and high-end menswear.
Doors are open to the bridal show in the Hall of Springs and The Gideon Putnam from 11am to 3pm. Admission is just $5 per person, and there will also be raffle prizes, including the opportunity for a couple to win a rooftop party at Northeastern Fine Jewelry in Schenectady.
Of course, if you have no wedding to plan (or just need a well-deserved break) don’t neglect these other great events happening in the Capital Region this weekend.
