Bridal Market Week in NYC

A few weeks following Fall Fashion week comes Bridal Market Week. Top wedding industry professionals gather to attend fashion shows, dinner parties, and cocktail parties. And you know, we're in an industry of planning wonderful events so you can imagine the ones we throw for ourselves. Anyhow I thought I'd share a few pictures from this past week.

Marcey Brownstein Catering presents "The Bounty of New York"

It was a complete honor to be a guest at this dinner with truly the wedding world's best! Shira, the Real Weddings Editor from Martha Stewart's Blog sums it up best in her entry "Fall Fete" where Daughter of Design gets a little mention woohoo! Here are a few more pictures:

Isn't this place SICK! I mean, on top of this view (pun intended) it was warmest night in October and simply one of the most magical places to be in New York City: 620 Loft & Garden

BORROW THIS IDEA: I loved Marcey's escort card roulette. All the cards were turned face down and when you picked it up you saw your seating arrangement. This solves the issue of anyone being upset they weren't sat next to such and such or weren't at the good part of the room. I have to say lady luck was on my side and I sat next to Marcy Blum, One Girl Cookie, Xochitl from Always a Bridesmaid and Sarah True of True Events. The fun continued during dinner when our entrees were removed underneath some had another piece of paper with a new number so you had an opportunity to sit next to a group of new amazing people. I wouldn't suggest this for a wedding but maybe a small rehearsal dinner it could be a fun idea.

Special thanks to Roey Yohai Photography for all the amazing pictures from the Brownstein dinner event!

It's unanimous. This was THE event of the week if not the year. It was a thousand of not just the city's but the world's top planners, photographers, designers, etc. It's one of those times when an awful thought like what would happen to the wedding world if this room blew up, I know morbid sorry but that's how impressive the crowd was. Here are a few pictures:
