The first Perfectly Planned Weddings Bridal Brunch was held at the Fairmont Pittsburgh on January 6, 2013. This event was produced by Perfectly Planned by Shari with the featured speaker being Shari Zatman, Owner and Chief Inspiration Officer of Perfectly Planned by Shari introduced by DJ Kelli Burns. The event was designed for the luxury bride and her family to learn some important planning tips for the early stages of planning as well as gain valuable advice on wedding planning mistakes not to make and be inspired by ideas for customization and personalization of their own weddings.
This was no typical bridal show which can often be an overwhelming cattle call of bride and vendors trying to meet and gather information as quickly as possible. This was a lovely, relaxed environment where guests could enjoy delicious bites and beverages provided by the Fairmont and BellaChristie Sweet Boutique.
Chapel Hills Jewelry was on site to show guests bridal jewelry and gorgeous options for wedding day jewels, wedding bands and ideas to turn heirloom jewelry into re-designed creations. Glassworks and Cheeks had an array of items on display available at their stores and through bridal registry.
Guests sat down at dining tables set for a wedding. Embellished turquoise linens and chair covers were provided by Lendable Linens and the beautiful floral centerpieces which were later raffled off were provided by Allison McGeary Floral Design. Perfectly Planned by Shari provided favors at each place setting of candy rings in a gift box with a favor tag reading “Now that you have the ring…Let’s Plan the Wedding.”
The program concluded with a raffle drawing of prizes including Tacori earrings, glass platter, wedding planning books, free engagement portrait session by In-Vision Studio and the floral centerpieces on all of the dining tables.
Here’s what guests who attended had to say about the event: “Great chance to get in the wedding spirit”, “I learned that good planning is everything”, “(the program provided) Helpful information and eases you into the planning process” and “I would recommend this program to friends and family because it does offer a lot of information”.
