This past weekend was the start of the Wedding Walks. This new trend engages local wedding vendors within walking distance of each other to showcase their businesses and products to brides and families within a specific geographical area. I spent a couple of hours on Sunday at the Geneva Wedding Walk. What a perfect day! The day began at The Herrington Inn & Spa where brides where given a goodie bag and a map of the stores around town. As the brides and their families visited the locations on the walk, including places like Town & Country Gardens Florist, The Crystal Bride, and Veiled in Elegance, they received special stamps toward the grand prize giveaway. The winner was awarded a trip or honeymoon to Bucuti & Tara Beach Resort in Aruba. The day finished up at Riverside Receptions where brides listened to harpist, Tina Barber, participated in dance lessons from Vargo’s Dance Studio, or had Rosemary Fanti demonstrate her amazing talents of illustration! Here’s the illustration she did of me in less than 5 minutes!
There are three more wedding walks on our Event Calendar. They are in Hinsdale, Downers Grove and Glen Ellyn.
