Here comes the Bride...
and don’t forget the Groom
 

Grand Rapids, Michigan, August 23, 2012- Kicking off the wedding planning season, the Annual Fall Bridal Show of West Michigan September 21-22, is a two-day show in DeVos Place on Monroe Avenue in downtown Grand Rapids, MI. Kohler Expos promotes and produces three seasonal bridal shows a year.  All under one roof ... A variety of exhibits will be on hand, including an exhibit featuring the comeback of the Groom’s Cake. Second Floor Bakery is a dessert bakery from Holland who will be displaying a gallery of wedding cakes, featuring groom’s cakes and three distinct dessert stations to meet a bride’s style – drama couture, fresh and funky, and romantic vintage.   

A Groom’s cake is traditionally dark (often chocolate or liquor-soaked) and designed with a nod toward what’s traditionally considered masculine. A current creative trend in groom’s cakes is
to have the cake reflect the groom’s hobbies and interests. “The comeback of the groom’s cake is creating a lot of buzz. It is the newest wedding trend,” says Denise Kolesar, President of Kohler Expos, Inc.

Local bridal boutique Renee Austin, hits the runway. With three couture runway fashion shows, presented by Renee Austin Wedding, you will see all the newest fashions by Sottero and Midgley, Wtoo and Watters, Casablanca, Bari Jay and more! It should be noted that this local bridal boutique was awarded the 2012 Pick from The Knot’s Best of Weddings and focuses
on customer service and unique design services. 

“The runway shows will transition from clean contemporary to uptown swank and end with the traditional touches that everyone will love. We will be showing bridal fashion like you haven’t seen before. We are very pleased to be a part of the runway shows, which will jump start the  bridal season,” says boutique owner, Maggie Torongo. Runway Fashion Shows are Friday evening 7pm and Saturday noon and 2 pm.

W
ZZM TV anchor Juliet Dragos will emcee the Friday evening event, MLive’s Todd Chance will emcee the Saturday Noon runway, and WGVU’s morning Show Host Shelley Irwin will emcee the 2 pm runway.

"Seasons of Love" tables will be set, giving brides a color visual needed for a beautiful  reception setting. Colors will focus on the every popular bright pink, bright green, a beautiful blue, and the traditional black and white, dressed with linens and chair covers. Exhibits include:  

  • Bridal Shops – Wedding Dresses
  • Tuxedo Shops – Tuxedo Formal wear
  • Wedding Bands - Engagement Rings
  • Wedding Cakes - Grooms Cakes
  • Invitations

Another comeback is the brockfolio. Slim, sexy, and a smart front pocket accessory gift for the groom and his whole wedding party. Thinner than a smart phone, the brockfolio is made with a soft napa leather, stylish French turns and strong rope sticking. “It is very unique and useful. It carries your cash, credit cards, I.D., business cards and includes a mini wallet pen with jotter cards for taking quick notes or compiling your honey do lists!

The Brockfolio is truly all you need in your pocket besides your smartphone.” says Ignacio Bonet, spokesperson for this unique product.” Truly not just a man’s item, I am wanting one for myself. Sometimes I don’t want to carry a purse around, which can be bulky, depending on what I have stashed in my purse. This replaces the bulky wallet, for the times you want to go light,” states Denise Kolesar, President of Kohler Expos.

Prizes are many; including a 12 person party-pack for the every popular Wine and Food Festival held in November, brockfolios, $100 cash prizes, the big day bag, and the “I Do” portrait, plus many prizes and discounts from participating vendors.

The bridal show will be held from 5-9 p.m. on Friday, September 21, and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, September. 22.  Admission is $7 at the door. Discount coupons are available on-line by visiting website www.kohlerexpo.com.  Convenient underground parking is available for a minimal charge at the Michigan Street or Lyon Street entrance to DeVos Place. More information at www.kohlerexpo.com
