Getting married is one of the most amazing times in your life, but it can also be one of the most stressful.
Where do you even start in the planning process?
Catering, flowers, photography, venue…..
Before you start stressing, make a stop at The Event Gallery in Minneapolis (Uptown). It’s the perfect resource for brides.
The Event Gallery is a boutique style wedding planning gallery. They’ve done all the hard work for you by screening many vendors and hand selecting only the best in the Twin Cities to feature in their boutique.
As you walk through the gallery, you will find a variety of vendors – photographers, caterers, florists, spas, photo booths, makeup artists, venues, stationery, event planning and linen and party rentals. You will also be blissfully distracted by beautiful displays and DIY ideas. It may feel like you are walking through a real life Pinterest board.
Oh, did I mention it’s completely complimentary? It’s true. There’s no pressure, just inspiration, and assistance.
This isn’t a wedding fair. The actual vendors aren’t live. Each vendor has a display for you to find inspiration in and take along their information. Like I said, no pressure.
No appointment is necessary, however they do ask that you make one if you plan on coming between the hours of 11 and 3 Tuesday-Friday. This tends to be a busy time with vendors and meetings.
So, what happens when you stop in? You are warmly greeted by either Jenna or Megan – the Gallery gurus. They will offer up some champagne and give you a folder of information about the Gallery. You will sit and chat with them for a moment about what you are looking for, answer any questions you may have, and then you can enjoy looking around and gather ideas.
It’s that easy. Bring your mom, bring your friends, make it fun!
Keep in mind, they only opened in July, so they are growing and will only become more amazing!
Listen up! The Event Gallery is giving away a $20,000 wedding!
