While brides-to-be (im)patiently wait for Vera Wang to unveil her Rodeo Drive boutique, perhaps it's a good opportunity to focus on the bigger picture—y'know, like the wedding festivities. To help luxury-loving ladies plan their big day, Luxe Hotel on Sunset Blvd is teaming up with pro wedding stylist Renée Strauss for a day of expert nuptial tips, gown ogling and much more.
Taking place Monday, March 17th from 3pm to 8pm, find a host of luxury fashion and accessories vendors catering to both brides and grooms, like lingerie line Cosabella, stylish suitmakers Brooks Brothers and WeHo boutique Mayfair House. In addition, a panel of pros will be on hand to dish relationship and event planning advice, plus enjoy gourmet bites and dessert tastings, fancy honeymoon giveaways (Canada and Italy, anyone?) and of course, a showcase featuring dresses for the Big Day.
There's even something for your groom: John Allan's men's salon will also in the house offering haircuts, shoe shining and pints of booze. The following day, an appointment-only bridal shop will be popping up at the swanky hotel.
