A Garden Wedding Experience

Tuesday, September 4, 2012

Fairchild will soon be in full bloom with brides-to-be this Fall when it hosts its premier Bridal Event and Fashion Show on Thursday, October 11. Unlike any other bridal event in South Florida, Fairchild’s event presents guests with a true “Garden Wedding Experience,” as well as providing them with local resources to help make their special day truly unique. 

The Bridal Event will feature a cocktail hour on the Garden House lawn where guests can enjoy drinks and sample light bites prepared by Fairchild’s preferred caterers. Guests will also have the opportunity to peruse local vendors—ranging from full-service caterers and photographers to florists and linen rentals—that will be on site. 

The highlight of the “Garden Wedding Experience” is a fabulous runway fashion show that takes place in the breathtaking Bailey Palm Glade, Fairchild’s most popular location for wedding ceremonies. The fashion show will feature original bridal gowns and bridesmaid’s dresses by Ella Bella Rozio, dresses for the mother of the bride and children’s wear from Bloomingdales and menswear by Hugo Boss. 

Tickets will be sold in advance and at the door. Each ticket admits two guests. Tickets are $40 for general admission in advance, $60 for VIP admission in advance and $50 for general admission at the door. 

For tickets and more information, please call Anna Brickner at 305.663.8058.
