A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure to plan and coordinate the inaugural fashion show for Valencienne Bridal at their store. Top wedding planners in Toronto were invited to attend and learn about the process of how a couture wedding dress is born from start to finish. When it comes to custom wedding dresses, they are more affordable than you think. Valencienne’s custom dresses start at $3000+ and they can go up to $10,000. Everything is measured precisely to fit your body. The price of the dress is based on the style and the materials chosen. Wedding dress shopping is fun, but if you can’t find a wedding dress after hitting 4-5 bridal stores, it can get exhausting and stressful. Half of our brides decide to go with a custom wedding dress after exploring their options. Most of the time they found themselves liking the neckline of Dress A, bottom of Dress B dress and details of Dress C but not a dress that has everything that they like.
Here are some behind the scenes photos from our event:
Here’s the team and sponsors from “Behind The Seams” Fashion Show:
Jessie and Victoria from Rachel A Clingen, GMA Clinic, Kim (Valencienne Bridal), Laura Jayne Bridal, Succulent Chocolate, Carli D paintings, Ladylyn Gool (Toronto Bridal Hair stylist) , Dawna Boot Makeup (not in photo) and last bust not least, our team – Carmen and Janet. Also a big shoutout to Paper & Poste for the beautiful invitations that you made for this event.
Anime, our wonderful host and DJ kicked off the evening in one of Valencienne’s dress. It was both educational and fun to see Kim’s collection and learn about the couture wedding dress design process. She even demonstrated how a dress was made in live.
The biggest giveaway of the evening is a custom cocktail dress made by Valencienne and Sunny from Lux Event Co was our winner!
We also put on our very own fashion show as well. Most of us changed into wedding dresses and partied for the rest of the evening. It was definitely the party of the year.
We also had a lot of amazing gifts in our swag bags for our attending wedding planners. Succulent Chocolate provided a live Smash bar Station where they do a live painting on the chocolate slab and smash it for takeaways.
Hope you enjoy our snippet of the event.
