Save the Date ladies!
Her Big Day: A Cultural Wedding Affair at the Double Tree Hilton January 31st, 2016! Its going to be hosted like a big party so women can really come together and celebrate their cultures. They will be able to connect with vendors who not only understand the needs of various cultures but truly are passionate about ways to incorporate these into the big day. It’s very exciting to learn from the various cultural traditions of weddings which will be represented. We always encourage brides to be inspired from their roots as much as “bridal trends” since today’s traditions are quickly evolving and adapting to the modern bride’s needs. What a great way to make your wedding stand out by attending and getting inspired in ways you may not have ever considered much less ever seen attending western weddings. Click here to buy your tickets with your girls to have a one of a kind bridal event experience.
Beri’s passion for creating a wedding platform for multi-cultural brides began after she went through the process herself as a multicultural bride planning a wedding for over 1500 guests over many days of rich traditions and, yes, wardrobe changes as well! 😉 Beri is Eritrean-American and the Co-founder of Her Big Day, a website and blog that highlights beautiful weddings, predominantly from different cultures. Beri recognized how hard it was for her to find wedding vendors specific to her unique needs when she was tying the knot and thus the idea of Her Big Day was created.
Karen is Nigerian-American and the Owner of Party With a K, a party & candy buffet design company. Having been an avid party planner since 2003 and both a bridesmaid and guest in over 10 weddings, Karen knows a thing or two about the wedding industry. Planning events, helping others, and celebrating are her three biggest passions. In addition to her other ventures, she is also co-founder of Her Big Day and together with Beri, these two are fabulous. Their event in January, unlike many Bridal events, fill a much needed nitch of vendors who specialize in the needs of multicultural weddings and understanding the chic modern bride.

The Eryn Rose dress at Le Salon Bridal Couture Seattle was a fitted open back lace gown with pearls and crystals with a custom cathedral lace veil by Ariel Jennifer Taub, for a timeless elegant western bride. We love Ariel’s veils because they are so customizable and offer wide range of colors in not just tulles but also Swarovski crystal designs.
The Brittany Dress at Le Salon Bridal Couture Seattle Le Salon look featured a blush full a line ballgown with heavy Swarovski and satin bodice and dreamy tulle skirt. The Toni Federici double satin edge finger tip veil tied the look together for a very classy finish to frame the brides face on her big day.
