Bridal show-stand out vendors

Though we didn't participate as a vendor this time, we did attend the recent KC Bridal Showcase and had a great time sampling and checking out everyone's displays. Some of our old favorite vendors were there: Sharon at KISS Events had a fun little "Kissing Booth" photo station set up, and it was great to see my favorite dj's Danny and Lindsay Haas out there with their company Premiere Midwest DJ. The pictures above are from some of our favorite new vendors at the event--look at that gorgeous, modern arrangement from An Eclectic Stem. They have a retail location in Westpost and seem like they would be a TON of fun to work with for your event. Those bright red and orange blooms look kind of like spools of yarn. So cool! Another company I loved was Deco Catering. Their samples included bacon-wrapped dates and these ADORABLE mini ice-cream-style cones with seasoned goat chesse. I think using the little mini-cones as passed appetizers during cocktail hour would be perfect! I'm also seeing more of the chartreuse and grape color combination, as illustrated by this table design by Brancatos. I love the modern look of two bright colors together--and you can use bright colors very tastefully, as illustrated above.
