There aren't quite as many weddings the first few months of the year as there are from April through October, but these months are always crazy busy with lots of other fun stuff to do. All the the recently engaged young couples are busy planning right now so we're having lots of meetings about making their wedding cakes. This is also the time for lots and lots of bridal events. On February 12th we attended West Manor Events open house at the beautiful West Manor Ballroom in Forest. What a magical evening and a wonderful opportunity for brides to see different flower arrangements,table settings, cakes and delicious food in an actual wedding setting. It really brings it all to life and of course the West Manor team really know how to throw a party! With three venues - West Manor Ballroom, The Trivium and City View the West Manor team will certainly have a space that suits your taste! Check them out at www.westmanorevents.com Thank you West Manor for sharing this evening with us!
On February 20th the Central Virginia Bridal Guide's Bride of the Year Luncheon was held at The Trivium in Forest. We were so pleased to be there again this year and meet many of the beautiful brides planning their weddings for this year and next. The winner, Whitney Bowers, received a honeymoon from Travelbugs as well as lots of other prizes and an article about her wedding in the next Central Virginia Bridal Guide.
