On Sunday we were excited to make our 3rd appearance in Rochester for UNVEILED Rochester 2018 at the Mayo Civic Center! This amazing day of bridal eye-candy took place in the brand new ballroom! Both vendors and attendees were surrounded by inspiration in every corner. It’s like your dream wedding Pinterest board, but live. We like to call it “Pinspired”!
As brides entered the showroom they were greeted with a red carpet featuring some of the most beautiful gowns for the season provided by Mestad’s Bridal and Formalwear! Once couples entered the show, they had the opportunity to plan, chat and brainstorm with the areas leading wedding service providers. Everything from catering, hospitality, floral, photography, fashion and so much more!
The Tasting Bars were a huge highlight of the show! Both Powers Ventures and Kahler Hospitality served up amazing creations for brides to taste! There is no other show that lets you get a little taste of your wedding day (literally!)
Brides were also able to participate in some Sunday retail therapy at BESPOKE The Shop at Unveiled! The shop offered exclusive and limited edition gifts hand-picked by The Wedding Guys themselves. Everything from clothing to coffee mugs to t-shirts. The shop also features trendy bridal and bridesmaids essentials from our friends a bminx.
The TrendSpot Fashion show featured some of our favorite bridal and bridesmaids looks for the season. We like to bring a little bit of what we see in NYC for Bridal Fashion week to Rochester. Mestads Bridal and Formal Wear featured the latest trends we are seeing for the 2018 season, including lace, sleeves, ballgowns and satin.
Models hit the runway with looks designed from SM Makeup Inc. featuring matte bronze contouring, bright highlights and subtle lips. Hair was pulled into a classic and elegant up-do. Brides were also able to pamper themselves with mini makeovers at the beauty bar, also styled by the talented SM Makeup Inc!
If you missed out on this show don’t worry- because we have another show in MINNEAPOLIS on March 4th and are returning to Rochester on October 21st!
