Local engaged couples gathered at the annual Longfellows Wedding Show last month. If you’re newly engaged, you should definitely save the date for next year’s show – here’s how the recent event went, and what you can expect at the next Wedding Show.
For the 17th year, the beautiful and historic Longfellows in Saratoga hosted an elaborate wedding show with dozens of vendors, giveaways, and more.
Vendors included area favorites like All Occasions Limousine Service, harpist Karlinda Caldicott, Saratoga Olive Oil Company, Smile Lounge Photobooth NY, Country Corner Cafe, and The Saratoga Winery, to name a few.
Many vendors have already signed up for next year’s , which is set for February 25, 2018.
“A good number of vendors sign up by the end of the month to secure their space for the following year,” Fran Dingeman of Network Saratoga and a long-time Coordinator of the wedding show said in a statement. “We’re proud to say that we have some wedding professionals who have been part of the show at Longfellows for all 17 years!”
Giveaways, Tastings & More
A wedding shower for up to 20 guests was given away at the recent Wedding Show, courtesy of Longfellows. Engaged couples also registered to win a $850 Wedding Day prize package, courtesy of several of the participating vendors.
The Tasting Room at the show allowed couples to sample a variety of confections and then vote on their favorites. The winner for Best Confection of the Show this year was Rachel Womble of Oh Goodness Cakes with her Pink Champagne Cake.
In addition, there was a Wedding Breakfast Workshop prior to the show which offered couples the chance to enjoy a Longfellows breakfast while hearing from local wedding professionals. These professionals who work in wedding-related fields like photography and DJ services presented top notch advice for those planning a wedding, such as questions to ask when interviewing vendors.
Make sure to save the date for the show next year on Sunday, February 25, 2018! There is no cost for admission and the contacts you can make and the information to be gathered cannot be beat.
Also, don’t forget Longfellows itself when considering a venue for your special day. The restaurant and hotel not only puts on a spectacular wedding show each year, but it’s also an ideal venue for weddings. Longfellows has a unique layout, a cozy fireplace, and it just exudes a rustic charm that is the perfect backdrop for a celebration of love.
