Brides! Weddings! Champagne!

Well hi there! Are the holidays really over?

Our weekend was filled with brides, and supporters of brides (including the occasional groom), and glitter, and lace, and tulle, and satin, and gorgeous food, and fondant, and just about all things shiny, sparkly, floral-scented and romantic. Ah, the world of wedding planning.

Personally, I love the whole thing. I did lots of community theater when I was a kid, and weddings seem like bigger, prettier versions of the plays I got to help put together years ago. With the added benefit of gathering friends and family and celebrating a couple’s future life together en mass, of course.

Apparently I could go on and on about weddings this afternoon, so I’ll just hop right into the point of my post: Hourglass had a booth at this year’s NW Bridal Showcase at Tulalip Casino, and it was fun! We met all sorts of interesting new customers, and made some great connections with other vendors. Total success all around.


Here was our pretty booth before the show started.

Another cool aspect of the show was that our shoes were featured in the fashion show that was held both days. Here’s what that looked like:

On a different but related note, we’d like to start hosting fittings for brides and their wedding parties at our studio by appointment. You bring the feet, we’ll provide the shoes, some bubbly and our own spectacular personalities. We think it will be a lot of fun, and it will give the whole party a chance to sit down, relax with a glass of champagne, try on heels (or flats of course) and brainstorm the perfect shoe design for the big day.

If you’re interested in scheduling one of these “champagne fittings”, send us an email or call us at 206-535-6193.

Here’s to a great week!
