FS Weds: A Wedding Showcase

Mar 10, 2014

On Sunday, I had the privilege of  attending FS Weds, a bridal show put together by the Four Seasons Hotel located in downtown Baltimore. This was a very exciting opportunity for me – after all I am the marketing manager here at Samuelson’s and I’m a bride-to-be – so I got to do a little work and a little play at this bridal show. I was offered tickets on short notice and luckily my amazing fiance’ agreed to go with me (the free lunch and drinks help to get him onboard).

FS Weds Event

VIP Luncheon

The VIP luncheon was an awesome experience. We enjoyed a multi-course lunch prepared by Executive Chef Oliver Beckert with wine and Champagne pairings. Each course was delicious and we ate every last bite (especially the desert)

Trio of Tomatoes: Chilled tomato consomme // fried basil // tomato & burrata salad // aged balsamic // wood fire roasted bruschetta // olive tapenade

Pan Roasted Halibut: carrott quinoa // cara cara oranges // frisee // blood orange sauce

Mango Meringue Cake: mango mousse // pineapple run parfait

During our meal, we watched gorgeous men and women modeling the latest fashion trends in the wedding industry. My biggest take was that non-traditional wedding dresses are trendy now. Julie Sabatino, founder of The Stylish Bride mentioned she has dressed lots of her brides in blush and even silver. There was also a Q&A with experts from the wedding industry including celebrity wedding planner, Marcy Blum (she did Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedwick’s wedding), The Stylish Bride founder, Julie Sabatino, Sade Awe, founder of The Bridal Circle and Kim Forrest from WeddingWire.

The day ended with a first access to Baltimore’s best wedding vendors including photographers, videographers, florists, make-up and hair artists, planners, cake decorators and many more! Oh and did we mention the SWAG bag was pretty sweet, too!

I did notice the show was missing a jeweler so maybe you’ll see us participating in next year’s event. Follow the Four Seasons Baltimore on Facebook for information next year’s FS Weds bridal show.
