Engaged and Ready to Plan? Check it out!

Our inbox is being bombarded with so many newly engaged couples, and it’s super fun to start planning amazing wedding films for many of them.

This week is also fun for us because it bookends our favorite wedding shows: Milwaukee’s Magnificent Bride, which was last Sunday, and WEDMKE, which is this Sunday.

Both shows put you in touch with wonderful wedding professionals. And I’d definitely put Sweet Pea Cinema in that category.And both shows offer completely different vibes.

MMB puts on a show for all engaged

MMB is hosted at the Pfister Hotel, one of Milwaukee’s most elegant places for a wedding. Vendors at this show pull out all the stops to show what can happen in the Pfister’s elegant ballrooms. This show has been happening for 14 years, and the quality shines through. Attendees are greeted with champagne and passed hors d’oeuvres. Beautiful models in gorgeous dresses and tuxes saunter through the aisles.

WEDMKE offers a bit of an ‘edge’

WEDMKE is one of the upstart wedding shows in the city. Launched three years ago, it bills itself “as individual as you are.” WEDMKE is hosted at Turner Hall Ballroom, definitely an uncommon space for a wedding. The ballroom’s soaring ceiling — crumbling and shabby chic — can be just the right fit for a couple with a bit of edge to them. You can grab a Bloody Mary and stroll the aisles starting at 10 a.m.

Win a trip to Cancun!

I may be burying the lead here, but if you attend this show, you will be eligible to win a Honeymoon Giveaway to Cancun from LovinAway! With the horrible weather we’ve been having lately, I’m thinking of entering the contest myself. KIDDING!If you haven’t seen either of these grand locations, take a peek at the accompanying video from Alyssa and Joe’s wedding. The two had their bride and groom prep at the Pfister, and boy did those spaces really showcase these two!And we hope to see you at WEDMKE this Sunday.Here’s our coverage of last year’s WEDMKE show.
