The photog! The cake! The party favours! The decor! The invites! The flowers! How many fights have you had so far? KIDDING! Actually, we aren’t. Planning a wedding can induce panic attacks, rashes, drunken disasters, family feuding, major debt and diarrhea. SERIOUSLY. Now, we might sound disgusting and uncouth (we are) but to combat these undesirable wedding planning side effects you really need to head to The Original Wedding Soiree this Sunday. Stop making everything so difficult! Trust the pros! Planning a wedding can be nice and this event brings together the best in Toronto in an intimate and dignified setting.

For $20, the Original Wedding Soiree is a near-magical way to spend an afternoon with your mother (lies!). Okay, doing anything wedding related with mom or mom-in-law to be can easily turn into a nightmare BUT we do think you should hit this up with your fiancee, sister or BFF. Ticket price will get you the following:
– A signature cocktail (DO DRINK BEFORE PICKING CHINA!)
– Decadent hors d’ouevres and canapes
– Entrance to the Bridal Beauty Bar
– A Beauty Swag Bag valued at $150 (REASON ENOUGH TO GO!)
– Access to 50 magnificent vendors
– Bridal couture fashion show

Everything you need for your big day can be solved in one lazy Sunday afternoon. Do you want a photobooth at your party? Have you considered a fancy hat from a local milliner? Would a wedding planner be just the thing for you to actually enjoy this process? How much is too much for a cake? Who will do your makeup? PHOTOG?! DECOR!! STATIONARY!!! (See how quickly things can get overwhelming and crazy?) Do yourself a favour, and GO TO THIS instead of Googling “Toronto Wedding” and breaking into a sweat while you gulp Merlot on your own.

Billed as “intimate, interactive and inspirational” we think this is a pretty good idea. After all, you really should enjoy your journey to the altar.
