Belladeux partnered with New Orleans Wedding Magazine to put on a Bridal Show unlike any other with interactive experiences, design showcases, prizes, and a world class view of the city. Here are some highlights!
The design had a Land and Sea theme inspired by the geode rock pattern of the Double Tree flooring. This opened up our imaginations and needless to say, we rocked it. Who would put 3 huge dolphins from Mardi Gras Production right at the entrance? We would of course!
The attendees arrived on the second floor where they were greeted with water dyed goodie bags on a giant clam. These goodie bags had bridal cups from the Double Tree, peanuts from Pigeon Catering, and of course the new print of the magazine.
Here attendees voted on the best designed reception table, chatted with a few vendors, and participated in a nautical cake pull to win fun prizes.
Congratulation to Unique Events that won the best designed tablescape!
One of our anticipated features on this floor was the Bubble Lounge. Bubbles and balloons spewed out everywhere and there even were blow up furniture from True Value Rentals. Here the attendees drank at the bar and sipped on Blanc de Bleu sparking wine.
To make it even more unique we had a champagne model from Magnolia Entertainment hand out the wine to the guest.
On the 16th floor, attendees mingled with over 70 of the best New Orleans vendors. Brides got to talk to a pletera of vendors from photographers, videographers, caterers, beauty, attire, planners, and many others in our industry.
Guests got to also participate in our Charming Vendor Scavenger Hunt while listening to a Jazz Trio from Magnolia Entertainment and sipping on cocktails. The charms turned into great cake pull gifts for each of brides. The Double Tree also had their famous cookies on display with a delicious milk and cookie bar.
The final stop was the Double Tree’s penthouse on the 17th floor where attendees could take a break and view the city. This was a once in a lifetime view that all of our brides and attendees could experience.
By the end of the night, brides, grooms, their families, and their friends were on their feet dancing while they waited for the prize announcements that surely didn’t disappoint. Winners received gift certificates from our favorite vendors including massages, a free videographer, an engagement photo session, and many more!
The night ended with the big honeymoon reveal where one lucky bride won an all-inclusive trip to Mexico from Paradise Vacation Escapes.
We had a blast working with NOW and watching our designs come alive!
