Same-Sex Brides, Rainbow Aisle Runners, LGBT Certified Vendors, Kleinfeld Bridal, Kleinfeld MEN, Matthew Williamson, Sylvia Weinstock, Shawn Rabideau from the hit TV Show, Bethenny Getting Married, Pinkberry & More Joined Forces for One Night to Celebrate this Historic Occasion
The Bridal Wishlist supports the right of all persons to be joined together in holy matrimony. LOVE is LOVE!!! So we are proud to highlight this fabulous event. The Wedding Salon celebrated this historic occasion with the bridal event of the summer on July 20th at Capitale. Working in collaboration with key gay wedding websites including GayWeddings.com and numerous LGBT Certified Vendors, The Wedding Salon made wedding dreams come to life for all couples alike.
The biggest names in the weddings industry exceeded expectations at this one-night event. Kleinfeld MEN showcased their classic tuxedos for the traditional groom and modern designs for the more fashion-forward groom. Showcasing peak lapels, Swarovski accents, morning tails, silk ties, pocket ties and diamond studded cuff-links, Kleinfeld MEN showed that “It’s not all about the bride” especially with the new horizon of gay marriage. Matthew Williamson additionally showed their support for gay marriage by dressing a lesbian couple in couture wedding gowns underneath a crystal canopy. This canopy became the focal point for the celebration of gay marriage at The Wedding Salon, as the two brides stood on a rainbow aisle runner constructed by Jerry Sibal Design Fusion.
Other trends seen at The Wedding Salon include the use of bright colors, from emerald green to purple reception tables, coral wedding cakes, the colors of the rainbow! Another must-have at weddings will be mini-mini cupcakes as shown by Baked by Melissa, mini-skewered Hors D’Ouevres as displayed by LGBT certified Cocktail Caterers, and LED lighting from cake tables to glow bars. Engaged couples will also look to elements of fun to truly celebrate their weddings in the season ahead by hiring caricature artists to sketch favors and Photo Book Flip Books for guests, another must, Pinkberry Frozen Yogurt
