Without further ado, we are excited to reveal that “Wanderlust: A Love of Travel”  is our show theme and guiding inspiration as WedLuxe becomes your ultimate host––with global travel and hospitality-styling providing unlimited luxury wedding inspiration.

This year we are thrilled to announce that Marta Urbanowicz of artam design joins the show as Event Design Director, with Kim Miyama of Kim Miyama Events as Event Logistics Planning Partner. Last year’s incredible show was brought to life in part by Alan Bisson of FireDog Creative and his talented team and we could not be more excited to share that the FireDog Creative team is returning this year as our Live Event Support Sponsor. Contemporary Furniture Rentals Inc. is our official Show Furniture Supplier for the sixth year in a row (THANK YOU Peter and team!), and Eventure Custom Environments and Event Draping is our Event Draping Partner.

Now, we’d love to take you on a brief tour of the show and give you a little taste of what you can expect!

When guests entered the House of Juliet room at the WedLuxe Show in Toronto, they were mesmerized by The Social Rose's floral design. With flowers from Royal Flowers Ecuador, The Social Rose created a rose covered entrance, floral frames that flanked the room, a floral fountain, and finally a floral canopy with beautiful draping by Eventure Designs Inc. The ornate, metallic feature wall that served as the backdrop for the serving area was provided by G.P.S. Decors who also provided the frames displayed throughout the room. Production, installation, lighting, and AV was all due to the team at FireDog Creative. In addition to the beautiful room design, guests were treated to an incredible food tasting (such as gnocchi with caramelized brussels sprouts, smoked bacon, and white balsamic cream) courtesy of the chefs from Oliver & Bonacini Events and Catering. For attendees looking for a dose of sweetness, there was a gelato bar from Hotel Gelato, and cotton candy being spun by Fancy Pufs!

This year, Teatro Verde presented and designed the florals for the Palazzo Floreale Flower Market at the WedLuxe Show and it was as if a pink-tinged Italian piazza came to life. With flowers from Royal Flowers Ecuador, the hard wall, doors, and massive urns from Decor and More Inc., the backdrop and signage printed and installed by Event Graffiti (designed by the WedLuxe art team), and the production, rigging, lighting, and chandelier installation thanks to the FireDog Creative team, this was a project of love and passion.

Each guest received a copy of WedLuxe Magazine and a personal takeaway rose bouquet. However, this wasn't the only treat we had in store for our attendees! To go along with the bouquet, guests also stopped by our signature gift bar to pick up their own gift bag, which included products from John Frieda, Jergens, Racinne, Radford, Vitabath, Elizabeth Arden, Chloé, and the WedLuxe Colouring Book designed by Cadence Design House.

If you didn't get a chance to attend, you haven't missed your chance to own the beautiful bespoke WedLuxe Colouring Book from our gift bags- it's now available for purchase online here! We'd love to see your colouring progress- share your art on Instagram with us using the hashtag #WedLuxeArt!

The 2016 WedLuxe Wedding Show in Toronto on January 10th, at the Carlu, presented by Oliver and Bonacini Events & Catering, will see another year where Rachel A. Clingen Wedding & Event Design, Laura & Co. Events, and Fine Cakes by Zehra unite to create an original installation feature area, this time, inspired by "Ethereal Love". It will showcase a larger-than-life floral masterpiece, a radiant all white tablescape, and the angelic pièce de résistance...The Dolce Ambrosia Cake, complete with fine-art 4ft. sugar crafted wings. Don't miss the opportunity to engage in conversations with the artists behind this magical installation and enjoy some fabulous giveaways compliments of this elite creative team!

In anticipation of the show on Sunday, January 10th, we'd love to reflect on last year's unique feature area, inspired by a breathtaking Parisian garden of cherry blossoms, these three elite Toronto wedding professionals partnered together to present (it even included a 15-foot tall cherry blossom tree!).

We can't wait to see you at the show! Tickets are available (while they last) here: http://wedluxe.com/tickets/
