Marriage is one of the most beautiful and sacred unions in any relationship. As an African-American woman, I have watched relationships in my community diminish; however, there is hope for the single and the engaged men and women of Atlanta. This Sunday, January 13, 2013, Blackbride.com is hosting their third annual bridal showcase. The event will highlight wedding professionals, vendors and an exclusive wedding gown fashion show. The Image Collections, based in North Carolina, is designing the Something Blue Media Lounge for media professionals and brides.
The event will feature gorgeous black women (and their men), who will spend time learning how to write their vows, have the opportunity to speak to expert planners and experience unique ideas to make their wedding day special. This is a great day for black love and hopeless romantics. The Bridal Show is the perfect event for a Sunday afternoon at the Marriot Atlanta Marquis from Noon to 5:00pm. Experience beautiful floral arrangements, photography packages, and fantastic wedding and honeymoon giveaways. Spending your Sunday at home just won’t do! Especially with advance tickets priced at only $15.00. Pull your fiancé out of the house and make sure to pre-register for a chance to win any of the prizes – there will even be a “Man Cave.” The event will have such big names as “Super Mogul” Kathy Ireland, V103 midday personality Egypt Sherrod, and Jeff Spain make sure you come out and enjoy your Sunday.
Latishia Futrell, director of communications for The Image Collections, said “The Image Collections is excited about our partnership with Blackbride.com and the opportunity to highlight our designs at the 3rd Annual Bridal Showcase with the Something Blue Media Lounge. We understand that importance of providing a memorable experience whether it is a wedding, social event or new product promotion.”
Make a date out of a wonderful event and experience a room full of beautiful black couples searching for what will set their wedding apart from others. If you feel like someone is dragging you to the bridal show as a bridesmaid or a maid of honor, just enjoy the many booths of treats and the joy your friend or family member will have finalizing their wedding plans.
“Our goal is to create an experience that will inspire the brides and their families,” said Futrell.
If you aren’t inspired to get up and go this Sunday then you are missing a time to truly bond with other African-American couples.
