Recently, tanaRi attended the Wedding Salon bridal showcase that took place at Capitale, one of the most distinctive venues in New York City. The hosts promised a range of products and services from the hottest vendors and they delivered.
The ballroom at Capitale was packed with vendor booths and makeup studios, and we met with some of the top names in the wedding photography industry, beauty experts, designers, videographers, and florists.
Here are some of the vendors that stood out for us – leaders in their craft or just amazing work! The gowns designed by UK’s leading designer Matthew Williamson were gorgeous as well as intricate. His bridal pieces are known to be feminine with sheer and light silhouettes and great attention to detail through embroidery and hand beading.
The music bands and other performing artists we liked were Élan Artists and the harpist. We also enjoyed the work of stationary vendors Unique Unusuals and LookLoveSend.com, who had some unique ideas for wedding invitations and loved the photography by Studio Webber and Brian K Crain.
Some of the best parts of these shows are the food tastings and floral decorations. There were many catering and baking vendors on site; some of our favorites were baked by melissa, butterfly bake shop and emilys-edibles, as well as Big Apple Florist and Ariston Florist, who had set up some spectacular floral designs!
Recent trends have shown that brides and grooms are researching vendors, using social media and blogs to make their wedding decisions. That said such tradeshows are a good way to meet many vendors in one place, talk to them and to check out their products that you have seen or read online.
For tanaRi, our commitment to the client is to bring them the best line-up of vendors, and tradeshows helps us talk to different vendors and compare prices and services, saving our clients a ton of research time. We are always scouting to discover new talent with innovative ideas and are willing to bring nothing but their best for our clients. Our hope is that you will check out these vendors and let us know your favorites or any feedback you may have. Look forward to your comments.
