Forever Bride is hosting its second annual Bridal Market this weekend (Nov. 6) at the Radisson Blu at the Mall of America. What's a bridal market, you ask? Ashley Hawks, vice president of Forever Bride, classifies this event as "a wedding style farmers' market," complete with floral robes, custom stationery, gift ideas for the groom, and tons of giveaway.
Hawks and her team put on the first market roughly eight months ago in an attempt to create a craft-fair environment that would skip the spectacle that goes along with some shows and help brides feel more in charge. "By forgoing the elaborate fashion shows, we are helping brides make the most of their time by connecting them to the local wedding community.” says Hawks.
Tickets are $20 and are on sale at foreverbride.com/market. You'll find us loitering around the s'mores bar.
