Dream Bridal Tour | Sunday January 24

Dream A Little Dream Events is pleased to present our next installment of the San Francisco Dream Bridal Tour! Here are all the details you need to know about and how to get your tickets: The Dream Bridal Tour - San Francisco edition is hitting the streets once again on Sunday January 24th. This is set to be a fun filled wedding planning extravaganza! The day begins at the Dream A Little Dream Events studio in San Francisco. From there, the group will be taken by cable car charters to a lavish champagne brunch at a posh SF hotel. After we are full and ready to take on the world, we will be visiting and meeting with over twelve other vendors in the wedding world. You will learn about photography, invitations, spray tans, flowers, linens, beauty, cakes, bridesmaid gowns and much, much more. The best part of the day is when you get to take home your bag full of goodies and discounts from all of the participating, hand picked by a planner, vendors. The last tour's bag was valued at over $3500 in discounts and gifts.

The premise of this tour was to bring the best that this city has to offer to brides that want to learn as much as they can about planning their wedding. This isn't a bridal show, the vendors do not a pay a dime to be featured, they are simply great at what they do. Think of an intimate setting where you can ask all the questions you want, and walk away from the day with a new found knowledge on all the things you wanted to know, but had no idea who to ask!

Happy Planning!

Prior to starting my business back in 2002, I worked in the hotel industry. The last hotel I worked at was a little French Chateau looking property in the East Bay called The Lafayette Park Hotel & Spa. Last week, the Fab 5 was invited to LPH for a wedding industry luncheon, so of course I jumped at the chance to go back for a visit. It was lovely.

The Lafayette Park Hotel is described by some to be a mini Ritz Carlton in the East Bay. It is such a charming property with so many fine details. From the collection of books in the library that guests are welcome to take home with them to the apples in the lobby, to the fireplace by the pool, there are so many wonderful qualities about this hotel.

The Fountain Courtyard is a gorgeous setting for a wedding ceremony and the newly redone Independence ballroom is a perfect size for dinner and dancing.

The Hotel also has another smaller Wishing Well Courtyard which is perfect for more intimate sized ceremonies, rehearsal dinners, etc.

Oh, and can we say Fabulous Spa!?? When I was working at LPH, they built the spa and during the start-up process, the massage therapists had to complete so many hours of massage before the spa could open to the public. Needless to say, I had many a La Stone Therapy there. The spa is beautifully done and so soothing.

I asked Becky Aramayo who is the Social Catering Manager at LPH to tell me her 5 favorite things about the hotel and here they are:

1. Charming outdoor patios complete with fountain and wishing well

2. French Chateau architecture

3. Award Winning Restaurant – The Duck Club

4. Poolside setting next to the Spa

5. Tasteful guest room d├ęcor

In closing, I have to say that The Lafayette Park Hotel & Spa has it all and is a very quaint and unique place to hold a wedding or any other type of even for that matter. Even a weekend getaway would be great there. It’s quite a romantic setting.

Thank you so much to Becky K. Aramayo, Social Catering Manager & Peter Dyckes Director of Sales and Events and all the rest of the wonderful staff at the Lafayette Park Hotel & Spa for hosting such a lovely event.

Fashion Event Just For Moms!

Our good friend, Kathy Goodman with Well Rehearsed, is hosting a fashion event just for moms! This event is specifically for Mothers-of-the-Bride & Groom to help them in selecting their rehearsal dinner & wedding day attire. We sometimes find that moms have a difficult time finding the perfect attire, so we're glad Kathy created a special event just for them.
