Creme de la Creme Wedding Showcase



Confession: I'm not one of those girls who grew up dreaming of her wedding and fantasizing about poufy dresses, diamond rings, and floral arrangements. I tell people all the time that my wedding can go one of two ways: a traditional Chinese affair with a banquet dinner, or an elopement to a beautiful beach somewhere, followed by a huge 27-course meal and dance party when the groom and I go home (all the guests for that party will go home with miniature bottles of Pepto Bismol as party favours). Be that as it may, even I found myself ooh-ing and aah-ing over the exhibitors and shows at the Creme de la Creme wedding showcase, which took place on Sunday at the Four Seasons Hotel. Brides-to-be and their posses sampled desserts and hors d'oeuvres from caterers and chefs, enjoyed fashion shows and burlesque performances, and checked out wares and services from local businesses. Here's a look at the event in photos.

Yaletown's lash queen Joyce Cajucom was present representing Noir Lash Lounge, one of the go-to places in Vancouver for lash extensions. Joyce's top tips for brides-to-be? "Definitely go for a trial run before your wedding, and have the extensions done for your makeup consultation so that you see how everything looks together."


Lord's Shoes caught my eye with their creative display combining cake and accessories. Store owner Jacqueline Noland goes on frequent buying trips abroad to find little-known international names and quality shoes. They also stock shoes by well-known labels such as Betsey Johnson and L.A.M.B.


JK Models founder Jennifer Koning was present to support her models as they worked the bridal runway. Here she is with one of her models, Kelsey, at the Bisou Bridal exhibit booth.


This was one of many beautiful floral arrangements by Granville Island Florist. I love the use of orange and the upside-down tulips!

Mmm Cupcakes! This local cupcake chain sponsored Creme's "Wedding Cake of Your Dreams" contest, which Dummeow won.

  2. Hehe I love attending weddings, but planning your own is pretty stressful stuff! I never dreamed of what my wedding would be like. The only thing I didn't want to skip on was great food. ;) Either of those options sounds good to me.

  7. Danielle, I used a little Canon point-and-shoot, the Elph 790 or something? It's nothing super fancy and I've used it before on my blog with great results, but the lighting at Creme was pretty terrible.

  14. I've always thought wedding showcases would be a little scary (you know... full of bridezillas), but this actually looks like fun! Love the floral arrangements and that Blush Bridal gown (looks like something you could wear again)... ooh, and those cupcakes!

    By the way, I'd go for an elopement to a beach... Chinese weddings always look so stressful because of all the relatives invovled (my cousin had one and I think he was so glad when it was over).
