Weekend Ahead: February 19-20
Brides, listen-up … here are a few weekend wedding to-dos you might want to squeeze in between brunch with your maid of honor and that afternoon yoga class.
The Modern Bride
Australian-born Callie Tien’s Modern Trousseau bridal line has been a bride favorite at Hayden Olivia since the boutique opened in uptown. Ruffled skirts, lace and floral details, simple silhouettes, and spaghetti straps make the collection so versatile. In other words, every type of bride will love this line, so head to the trunk show Friday and Saturday, February 19 and 20. By appointment only. 221 South Tryon St., Suite 221, 704-333-0377, haydenolivia.com
The Bold Bride
If Swarovski crystal details and diamante embellishments make your eyes sparkle, then a visit to J. Major’s Bridal Boutique for the Martina Liana trunk show this weekend will be fun! The collection is full of delicious silk organza, silk satins (in shades of pink, blue, or candlelight) and Italian metallics with accessories like capes, beaded belts, and detachable beaded shoulder straps. Special pricing offered on gowns during trunk show events. Friday and Saturday, February 19 and 20. By appointment only. 2400 Park Rd., 704-372-0072, jmajors.com
