MILWAUKEE'S MAGNIFICENT BRIDE An elegant bridal show like no other.

E PROPOSED, YOU SAID YES more. “It’s a show where a bride can pretty much

(how could you not?), and the date has been set. Now the wedding planning begins. You want to create an exquisite day that everyone will remember forever. Where to begin? On Feb. 26 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m., Milwaukee’s Magnificent Bride Wedding Show at the Pfister Hotel returns for its seventh year. This is your chance to peruse the specialties of more than 60 high-end boutique vendors, including caterers, florists, bakers, photographers, stationers and

plan her entire wedding from beginning to end,” says Debi Zeinert, calligrapher and owner of The Blooming Quill. Zeinert, along with David Caruso, president and creative director of Dynamic Events, and Kate Iggens, owner of Stone Manor Bridal in Cedarburg, founded the show in 2006 as an alternative to larger impersonal events. At this exclusive show, the business owners, not hired reps or employees, usually attend and are available to speak with brides in person about their services. “There really

is nothing like Milwaukee’s Magnificent Bride Wedding Show,” says Caruso. “It is the premier opportunity in the city for brides to connect with some of the best local wedding artisans in the state of Wisconsin.” The show, which is spread throughout the Pfister Hotel’s entire seventh floor, has the ambiance of a wedding reception. Sip champagne and sample specialty hors d’oeuvres, cake slices and fine chocolates. Mingle with models attired in wedding fashions for brides, bridesmaids, grooms and groomsmen. In addition, Caruso presents two informative workshops during the show at 1 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., each lasting 30 minutes. “The workshops provide a nice opportunity for brides and couples to get inspired with new trends of the upcoming season as well as helpful tips on how to create a very unique and personalized wedding,” says Caruso. Every year, a showstopper is the collaborative designer tables. For 2012, the whimsical theme is fairy tales. “These over-the-top fabulous displays of dining tables are so much fun for brides to see,” says Caruso. “It’s definitely a highlight of the show.” Created by a team of vendors, the displays reveal just how breathtaking reception tables can be and are inspirational as well as eye-catching. Another show highlight, Caruso notes, is the swag bag giveaway, provided by participating vendors. All preregistered brides will receive this special gift bag full of premium surprises. To preregister, visit mmbshow.com. The price is $25 in advance (credit card/ PayPal) or $35 at the door (cash/ check). Tickets go on sale starting Jan. 1. A grand prize is also awarded toward the end of the show, so don’t forget to pick up your satin lanyard with a key. Like Cinderella and the glass slipper, each bride gets to try her key on a glass treasure box. The winner goes home with a beautiful piece of jewelry from David Liska Custom Jeweler. ■ PHOTOS BY FRONT ROOM PHOTOGRAPHY

FABULOUS TIPS David Caruso, Wisconsin's premier wedding planner, gives you the top 10 tips for making your wedding a success.

1 SET A BUDGET. Have a clear

understanding of your finances.

2 DEFINE A THEME.

A common design element threaded throughout the event is a fabulous way to personalize the experience.

3 BE A GIRL SCOUT. Always be

prepared for bumps in the road during the planning process. And don't sweat the small stuff!

4 PUT IT IN WRITING. Make sure

every vendor provides a detailed contract outlining their terms and conditions.

5 ALL ABOUT ORGANIZATION. Prepare a detailed planning checklist and work through the tasks in a timely fashion.

6 BE NICE! REALLY NICE! The

nicer you are to your vendors, the more they'll want to go above and beyond to make your wedding day perfect.

7 AVOID A SEATING DISASTER.

should be plenty of food from start to finish.

9 PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE IT COUNTS. Make big state-

ments by spending your budget in savvy ways. Perhaps a custom ice sculpture or impressive head table centerpiece.

10 THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX.

Wow your guests with unexpected details such as club-style lounge areas and interactive photo booths.
