Her Big Day – A Cultural Wedding Show

20160131_114635.jpg

The colorful, unique traditions we have around the world are finally being recognized in the Northwest. Karen Okonkwo and Beri Gebrehiwot created Her Big Day because they found that cultural brides had a hard time finding the right vendors to decorate, cater, style, and plan their non-traditional weddings. The market for brides looking for dresses other than the white strapless gown, something old, something blue tradition, and 3 course dinner are not easy to come by. In 6 months, these ladies made their vision come to life and had the support from sponsors Seattle Met Bride & Groom and The Double Tree by Hilton. They brought together trusted vendors to share with brides to be. I must say, it was well organized and full of complimentary experiences to make wedding shopping fun and easy.

I see something shiny and run to it….there were many tables of jewelry but Mitra Raman, merchandise manager of Chloe + Isabel really hit it off. I also got to try on stacks of jewelry, she won my heart.
