This Philly Wedding Planning Event Is So Worth It For One Key Reason
Hint: It has to do with making a tricky vendor decision much easier.
Maybe you just got engaged, or maybe the question was popped a while back and you’ve just been basking in the excitement while low-key procrastinating on the actual wedding planning. Either way, we’re glad you’re here, because planning for your wedding day fashion, hair, and makeup needs to happen a lot sooner than you might think. Luckily, there’s an upcoming event right here in Philly geared towards checking off all those To Do’s in one stylish place. Think of the Aisle Style Bridal Event as your own personal bridal consultation, chock full of necessities like hair and makeup tutorials, wedding dress trials and more. Sounds like the perfect way to take care of a bunch of things at once, right?
Aisle Style is happening Sunday, December 10th from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Old City Collective (222 Race Street). The day will be filled with a TON of personalized consultations with wedding professionals to help you create or complete your vision for the big day. Plus, there will be live music by Pat and Sean Kelly and, of course, canapés and champagne to get you feeling fancy.
Tickets, which you can grab here, run $99 for the day, but they include entry for you and an entourage of two additional guests to help you with all the decision-making and idea-spotting. Who will it be? Your mom and your maid of honor? Your mom and your husband-to-be? Your maid of honor and a bridesmaid? If you can’t decide, know that you can add to your guest count for $20 per person.
While the price may seem a little steep, the fact that you can try out TWO fantastic hair and makeup vendors before financially committing to their services makes it worth it enough to us. A lot of times, trials with makeup vendors aren’t available until after you book them. And while their Insta feeds may be filled with gorgeous work, you aren’t going to know if their work makes sense for you without seeing it applied directly to your own visage. It’s a tricky Catch-22 of the wedding planning world, which is why we’re so pumped that Aisle Style included two different hair and makeup vendors to decide between.
