{Update!}  Purchase your tickets at 50% off using the promo code “bbhalfoff” at the Bridal Brunch site.

I am proud to announce that Design in August will be showing at Nashville’s Bridal Brunch: A Toast to Wedding Style this January 9th!  Bridal Brunch is a champagne social featuring heavy hors d’oeuvres, a bridal fashion show and the chance to mix & mingle with some of Nashville’s most elite wedding vendors.  It’s a one-stop shop to help you plan your perfect wedding.  And Design in August will be there to showcase custom stationery design.  I’m so excited!  Yet another opportunity to meet more of Nashville’s beautiful brides and chat wedding stationery & ephemera all in the setting of a boutique bridal show.  So gather your moms, your gals, & even your man, and join us for a lovely Sunday Brunch on January 9th.  See you there!

Little Black Dress Revue | Video Recap

How fun!  Jon and Kelsey Bufkin of FocalPoint Cinematic Weddings shot a video recap of the Little Black Dress Revue.  Take a look at the magic that happened when several of Nashville’s top shelf wedding vendors joined forces and threw one uber-fabulous bridal trade show!  And see my cocktail stir sticks, event programs and catering menu cards in action.  Cheers!

Fantastic Flipbooks

I love a good idea.  And I couldn’t resist sharing this one with you.  One of the delightful vendors who participated in the Little Black Dress Revue on Tuesday evening was Nashville’s Fantastic Flipbooks. These guys take the ever popular photo booth trend up a notch.  Nay – up ten notches.  Props and all, Fantastic Flipbooks sets up an interactive booth for party goers to play and pose.  Typical photo booth, right?  Except these guys shoot for 6 seconds, 10 frames a second, and within minutes print up a (what else?) Fantastic Flipbook party favor!  They even personalize the cover for your event.  Guests immediately have a personalized favor to capture the evening and slip into their purse or pocket.  Brilliant.  See my lovely feather-boa-wearing assistant Liz help me demonstrate…

Happy Weekend, everyone!  Olé!

Events | The Little Black Dress Revue

I recently had the pleasure of meeting the lovely Sarah Willard of Music City Events here in Nashville.  And the timing could not have been better!  Sarah was in the early stages of planning a very unique party experience for potential clients.  And she invited me to come on board!  The idea is that a perfectly selected group of vendors are coming together to throw a party for brides-t0-be.  Way more fun than a regular ol’ trade show!  So grab your groom or your gal pals and mark your calendars for Tuesday, November 9, 2010 to attend The Little Black Dress Revue… it’s a cocktail party you won’t want to miss!  Here’s why:

  • It’s an actual party for couples to experience what their wedding day can be like.  Instead of visiting 30-40 vendors in an 8×8 space at bridal shows, see 16 carefully selected vendors in action.
  • Enjoy a swanky night out at the Noah Liff Opera Center from 6:30–9:30 p.m.  It’s a fairly new event venue with modern & stylish sensibility. (Follow the link – isn’t it fabulous?!)
  • Design in August will be the featured custom invitations designer!  I will be on hand to show samples and chat about my design services for your custom design needs.  You will also get to see my designs in action, as I will be providing all the custom paper goods for the party.
  • Savor delicious hors d’oeuvres and scrumptious desserts while enjoying Little Black Dress cocktails (with stir sticks designed by yours truly!) and local brews with music by a live band.  Bring your dancing shoes!
  • If you register by this Wednesday, save 50% on your ticket by using the promo code “ABGRevue” offered by Ashley’s Bride Guide here in Nashville.  Register here.

Each $10 ticket includes dinner, dessert and dancing PLUS an entry into a drawing for a Grand Prize worth over $5,000 from top-shelf Nashville wedding vendors!  That’s three zeroes… and a big chunk saved from your overall wedding budget.  The Grand Prize Package includes a groom’s cake, bridal portrait session, custom thank you cards (by Design in August), rehearsal dinner planning, bar service, discount on customized draping, videography goodies, limousine transportation, and {much much} more.  See a complete list of bridal vendors at the Little Black Dress Revue vendor page.

Remember, if you register by Wednesday, November 3rd, save 50% on your ticket by using the promo code “ABGRevue” brought to you by Ashley’s Bride Guide.  Register here. That’s two for the price of one!  Talk about affordable date night.  Groom can’t make it?  Get your gal pals together for a Girls’ Night out!  See you there!
