Take The Wedding Walk

Last Sunday Bouché Productions and the Partnership for Haddonfield had the second annual Haddonfield Wedding Walk.  Haddonfield, a small town in South Jersey, has over 70 businesses to help brides in the Tri-State area plan their weddings.  Talk about one stop shopping!

The Haddonfield Wedding Walk began at the Haddonfield Fortnightly (located on the corner of Grove Street and Kings Highway) where each registered bride received a passport with the names and addresses of each business in Haddonfield catering to brides and a place for vendors at the Fortnightly to stamp after the brides visited with them.  Brides with at least eight stamps on their passports from stores located in Haddonfield and signatures from all seventeen vendors at the Fortnightly were entered into a raffle. Prizes included gift certificates and coupons with a Grand Prize of round trip air fare for two.

Retail locations participating in The Haddonfield Wedding Walk were marked with easy to see festive ivory and gold balloons.  Brides and their wedding parties toured through the historic town visiting fifteen locations located throughout Haddonfield that were taking part in The Haddonfield Wedding Walk.  Retailers were located along Kings Highway and from Haddon Avenue, to Tanner Street and Mechanic Street.

A wedding trolley from The Great American Trolley Company delivered brides and their guests to locations throughout town that included eateries like Melange, Little Tuna and the British Chip Shop.

This year’s show welcomed Mark Kingsdorf of Queen of Hearts Wedding Consultants. Kingsdorf is the only Master Wedding Planner in our area, and one of about thirty-some in the nation,”Kingsdorf talked about trends and bridal tips, shortcuts, things brides might not know.” Kingsdorf's information alone makes coming to this show worthwhile.

The show at the Fortnightly included an entertainment showcase and a fashion show featuring gowns from Angel Bridal, Country Way Bridal and Jay West Bridal, and men’s formal wear by Dynamic Crew/Lifestyles Tuxedo.

Brides at The Haddonfield Wedding Walk ran the gamut of the newly engaged who were just starting out planning their weddings to brides looking for specific vendors like florists or photographers.  If you didn't make it to this year's Haddonfield Wedding Walk, log onto Bouché  Productions, they can help you keep up with upcoming wedding shows, and next year's Haddonfield Wedding Walk is sure to be listed next fall.  Meanwhile try some other Bouché  events.  If you live in Pennsylvania, I highly recommend the 4th Annual Mainline Bridal Event at the Villanova Conference Center, last year's show really wowed me!
