As I mentioned in my last post, I was invited to a wonderful bridal brunch at the US Grant Hotel in downtown San Diego charmingly named "Something Borrowed". Since I just got engaged, I must admit that I'm really enjoying this stress-free part of the wedding planning journey, you know the part where you haven't even started? Yup, that's me. Honestly I don't know where to begin, so I was thankful to attend this event filled with ideas at every corner sending my sister and I's mind into overdrive!
The first part of the brunch was a walk-through of what a ceremony would look like into a staged reception with music, drinks and food. I loved the ambiance- it was young, sexy and elegant.
After enjoying what I like to call the "pre-party" we headed upstairs to the Presidential Ballroom that was amazingly decorated by some of the vendors. The table my sister and I sat at a modern glam table. (Designed by First Comes Love, Haydee's Creative Flowers, Classic Party Rentals, Nic.Roc Designs, Concepts Event Design and APR Fine Linen.)
While our 3 course meal was served the wonderful band played some fresh tunes like "blurred lines" and "happy" which made me want to get up and dance (but of course I contained myself).
There was a panel of experts, a Loverly presentation with some great ideas to take into consideration, and a fashion show of beautiful gowns in all sorts of styles. Here are 2 of my faves:
And of course more food… hmmmm...
Then to the dessert room! Yummy Cupcakes SD treated us to a lemon-inspired display:
Meanwhile La Reine de Macarons had some great display and this adorable macaroon chandelier!
Among the vendors, the very talented fashion designer Veronica Scott, next to the beautiful Whimsique Invitations
