Wedding Day Expo at the World Trade Center (Boston)

By  |  0 Comments

It was a rainy Sunday afternoon at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston. Fiancé’s and mothers of the bride lined up to register for the Wedding Day Expo, where we received our Macy’s gift bags (complementary for the first 100 attendees). In addition to a fashion show stage there were beautiful wedding cake displays and bakers offering samples of their delicious varieties of desserts. 015479d23e23f29e8d6d802920e7f86fe57e3436fa_00001Inside there were bands, flute players, guitar players, shoe designers, jewelry makers, florists, and venues throughout New England being represented for the big day. For an additional layer of fun, there was a jewel encrusted backdrop where you could take candid photos with wacky costumes accessories, hats, and masks. Further into the exposition, you could find hairstylist and make up artists demonstrating their talents, as well as a few booths for groomsmen. In addition to an abundance of cookies, cake, and a cash bar you could get your fill and enjoy the day in a light as air mood, with just the right amount of inebriation.

The artistry exhibited at the expo was breathtaking. Floral displays were uniquely arranged and featured both exotic and domestic flowers. Cake designers displayed multitiered designs, both large and modestly size. There were beautiful floral patterns monogrammed designs as well as more simple classic designs. 01fcb56376d198139c9c19c6f741ec380c0c10e015_00001But the best part of the wedding cake displays where the samples of absolutely delicious wedding cake. I enjoyed samples from Montilio’s Baking Company the most. My favorite was the Oreo cookie mousse filling with chocolate cake and vanilla frosting. Shoes to Dye For showcased custom shoe designs for the bride and bridesmaids as well as Veil samples and hair accessories for the big day. Make up artists demonstrated their skills on models as did hairstylist with full scale updos and Hollywood waves. There were even mannequins displaying hairstyles for a company I was unable to get the name for (sorry loves). It was truly a sight to behold. All of this creativity, all this artistry, and all to create memories for the bride and groom.

It was really great to see so many elements to a wedding visualized in these booths, things that I did 01f23210ba12923341426ed810d31c6f169864590b_00001not even consider. Since there are several people in my family getting married within the next couple of years. I took a lot of information with me from venues to florists, customized invitation designs, custom wedding gown designers, musicians, and so much more. Unfortunately I was unable to stay until the end, but they did have a duo, called Alla Breve, playing as well as a fashion show featuring all of the bridal designs and groomsmen tuxes.
My favorite venues where the Hyatt in Cambridge and Ocean Edge in Cape Cod. Both booths had really incredible displays and their packaging for their information was so beautifully done that I felt their venues would offer a luxurious experience for any wedding. Below I have more photos and video footage of my experience at the expo.
