Be Inspired by Behind the Veil’s Fashion Show!
Behind the Veil (#BehindTheVeilSavannah), Savannah’s premiere bridal event, will showcase the area’s top wedding professionals on Sunday, March 2, at the Telfair Museums in elegant downtown Savannah. The boutique bridal salon, presented by Savannah Weddings, the Telfair Museums, Visit Savannah and the editors of Savannah magazine, will feature more than 50 expert wedding planners, caterers, florists, photographers, venues and more. Highlighting the boutique salon is the top-label bridal fashion show, courtesy of BleuBelle Bridal, Simon’s Formal Wear, B Street Salon, Savannah Makeup and Skincare Professionals, Urban Poppy and French Knot Studios. Music will be provided by Jeremy Davis & The Equinox Jazz Quintet.
The fashion show, which will lace its way through the Jepson Center for the Arts at 4 pm., will feature gowns from exclusive designers such as Jenny Packham, Vera Wang, Lazaro, Liancarlo, Monique Lhuillier and Paloma Blanca. Heather Burge, BleuBelle Bridal owner, promises a display of the biggest bridal trends of the year—on real Savannah brides. And don’t forget the mothers-of-the-brides and flower girls!
This year, the show’s inspiration will transcend the dresses themselves. Kandace Douglas, from Simon’s Formal Wear, will team up with wedding event stylist Audrey King of French Knot Studios to illustrate how grooms and ring bearers can show off their personality with hidden (and not-so-hidden) touches. Hints of Radiant Orchid, this year’s Pantone Color of the Year, will surprise you in floral creations that will go beyond the traditional bouquet, courtesy of Urban Poppy’s Anissa Manzo. Monica McMasters of B Street Salon and Lynn Quann of Savannah Makeup and Skincare Professionals and their staff will team up to show a variety of original hair designs and makeup artistry that will complement any dress and personality.
Brides are sure to leave Behind the Veil elated and inspired! Make your plans to attend today, purchase tickets online!
