Firsthand Snapshot of the Tickled Pink Bridal Show!

November 13, 2012 | Posted in Weddings

The Hotels Unlimited Tickled Pink Bridal Show at the Crystal Ballroom wedding venue in Freehold, NJ, was an amazing success! Here’s a firsthand snapshot of the experience…


From the moment you stepped out of your car, you felt like a celebrity: valet parking, escorts to the registration tables, escorts to the wedding planning teams, not to mention the décor when you walked in. A towering breast cancer awareness ribbon ice-sculpture was illuminated with pink lighting and complimentary pink cocktails surrounding it. It was the perfect setup to gather and plan ideas for your perfect wedding.

SCE created a lounge atmosphere in the Crystal Ballroom with white draping and mood lighting galore. The room was accented by high backed white leather couches, and chandeliers lit up in pink. Chiavari chairs lined the runway where the models would soon be strutting by in the beautiful designs by Sweetest Sin Boutique wedding lingerie. Abella Studios’ cameras flashed all night.

The models in the fashion show walked with an elegance and confidence that impressed the crowd tenfold. Their themed ensembles were complemented by hair and makeup designs. Kiss and Makeup 247 highlighted the girls’ inner beauty, and Hot Mess Studio rocked the hair!

Brides, booked or un-booked, could not stop raving about the vendor tables. They browsed exquisite bridal gowns from Sassy Chic Boutique. One favorite gown – featuring floor length draping, a sweetheart neckline, and a dramatic white feather bustier – attracted endless praise from passersby.

Narcissus Florals also pulled out all the stops with their centerpiece displays. One stood about three feet atop a table sprinkled with crystals. The centerpiece had black feathers spilling over the top. Another centerpiece stood about four feet overhead with bright pink flowers intertwined with green leaves that created the perfect dramatic flair.

“I could not have been happier with the bridal show’s outcome. We gave the brides a VIP treatment we hope they will never forget,” said Julia Coppock, Marketing Director for Hotels Unlimited.

1% of all the proceeds will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The group’s representative, Alicia Barbieri, said that she could not wait for next year, and hopes to make an annual appearance at the bridal show.

The bridal show also attracted a celebrity! Doria Pagnotta from Jerseylicious, a popular show on the Style Network, joined the crowd. Recently, Pagnotta was engaged and is planning her wedding for next year. “This whole thing was aDORIAble!” said Pagnotta. Doria does onsite hair and make-up designs with her own company, Stunning Beauty By Doria.

We want to thank everyone who participated in the Tickled Pink Bridal Show. It was an amazing time, and we can’t wait for next year!
