Once Wed goes to Washington!

I’m so excited to announce that I’ll be taking part inĀ  The 2nd Annual Luxury Event presented by the Couture Wedding Consortium of Washington DC coming up on February 6th. Blogging has been such an integral part of Once Wed’s growth and I’m very much looking forward to the opportunity to share my experience(and mistakes!) with a small group of VIP vendors taking part in the this event earlier in the morning and then actually attending the event later on in the afternoon with fellow bloggers Oh So Beautiful Paper, District Weddings, and The Relentless Bride.


Below is a small list of exhibitor’s(more to come next week) who are showcasing their services including the amazing, The Cotton Bride, who is also giving away the lovely wedding dress you see below to one lucky attendee.

    I would love to attend this event. I am engaged and live and work in DC. I am planning our July wedding and also purchased my wedding dress from your site. I read the site daily as does my mom along with one of my bridesmaids ,who also just got engaged and is planning her September wedding. She also lives and works in DC. I would love to attend this event with her. Thanks so much for the offer of 2 free entry tickets.

    I’d love to go! With an August wedding and my job keeping me on the road 250 days a year Once Wed has been a HUGE help! We’d love to go to the DCCWC, we could get a huge jump on the planning process and take some of the pressure off us.

    I’d love to attend too! I’m a DC native, recently engaged, Once Wed junkie, and I could REALLY use an event like this to check out vendors since my full-time job is rather demanding.
