This sounds like it's going to be an incredible event: The Ritz-Carlton, Denver is hosting an afternoon of wedding workshops and showcases, with a portion of the proceeds supporting Wish Upon a Wedding, a nonprofit dedicated to creating weddings for couples facing terminal illnesses.
Pre-registered tickets are $30 per person, and will gain you access to interactive workshops, including a presentation of flattering wedding and bridal party attire by the pros at Anna Be Bridal Boutique, a hands-on floral arranging session with The Perfect Petal, a culinary demonstration with the Ritz-Carlton chefs, and a showcase of wedding bands and gifts from Tiffany & Co. There will also be plenty of style inspiration in the form of a "wedding vignette" showcase—featuring ideas for table settings, floral arrangements, linens, and more—plus a gift bag and the chance to win prizes like a $500 Ritz-Carlton gift card. And if you spring for the $60 tickets, you also get to attend a V.I.P. brunch with some of Colorado's leading wedding experts and a special V.I.P. gift bag. The event takes place on November 7, 2010; the V.I.P. brunch starts at 11 a.m., and rest of the events begin at noon. To purchase pre-registered tickets, call Angel Montez at 303-312-3133 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
P.S. On a somewhat unrelated note: The Ritz-Carlton, Denver also just announced that their award-winning spa is offering 45-minute massages, facials, pedicures, and hair-conditioning treatments for $50 each from October 11-17 in honor of Spa Week 2010. To make an appointment, call 303-312-3830. —Lauren Matthews, editor, Brides Colorado
