Amphora Bakery and Fluffy Thoughts Cakes provided delectable desserts including gold glitter cake pops, mini cupcakes, cake squares, lemon bars, and macarons.

Once the panel ended, everyone headed upstairs for an unexpected surprise – champagne, additional sweets, and a mock wedding setup! Gold chiavari chairs, tablescapes by Party Rentals, flowers by Maryam Flowers, music by Washington Talent Agency, and a dance floor set the stage for an exquisitely designed mock reception. An adjacent ceremony room was even set with seating so that guests were able to envision a full wedding experience in the space. Guests mixed and mingled while exploring the details, chatted 1:1 with the panelists, relaxed on the beautiful terrace, and even toured the bridal suite and guest rooms.

Held at the Wayfarer, fashion insiders were treated to a variety of pre-market goodies including makeovers by GLAMSQUAD, personalized calligraphed notebooks by Eliza Gwendalyn, a GIF-booth from Smilebooth, and much more! Monte Durham, star of Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta, was on hand for selfies, as were fabulous designers like Olia Zavozina, and the team from Jean-Ralph Thurin. It was the perfect way to get pampered and celebrate before the hectic (but always amazing!) New York Bridal Market!

The WeddingWire Social Atlanta was a fashion and beauty-themed treat for brides-to-be! The event was held at Neiman Marcus in the Lenox Mall, and was hosted by local bride Mone’t. Guests were welcomed with champagne, wine, and hors d’oeuvres, and enjoyed a fashion presentation featuring designer looks for pre-wedding parties—and some gorgeous lingerie, too! Afterwards, Tom Ford Beauty selected one guest to receive a total makeover and guests were able to ask the experts questions about makeup application and skin care. A lucky raffle winner received a pair of pearl earrings from Neiman Marcus, and all attendees received gift cards.
