“The Unveiling” Wrap-Up!


“The Unveiling” took place Friday, January 24th at Ready or Knot, and was a blast to say the least! We had such as wonderful time with our friends and supporters.


Party guests enjoyed delicious appetizers from Jones Brothers Cupcakes, yummy croquembouche and puff pastries from Cake Expressions Inc. and delightful mixed drinks made by yours truly! Lillian Jacobitz from Creative Fleurs and Larry and Lisa Zulkoski from Hyvee Floral stopped by with gorgeous floral arrangements, and Joel Rudloff from A Final Take pumped up the party with some awesome jams. The hot commodities of the party were Christine Danderand of Blush Makeup Artistry and Dani Cooper of Boss Studios. They turned our beautiful brides-to-be, into drop dead gorgeous brides-to-be. We also had special guest Melissa Kasoff of Kelly Faetanini in attendance to help brides find the dress of their dreams. Lots of fun was had by all, and we were so thrilled to see so many old and new faces. We are so grateful for our friends and supporters. We would not be where we are today without each and every one of you!




Pictured above are the cronuts that served as the vendor invites for our party. How fun are they?! They tasted even better than they looked (believe it or not!)

Stay tuned, because this party was definitely “knot” our last…though it will be tough to top “The Unveiling”!

Ask the Experts

It’s a new month and today we’ve got brand new wedding tips from a local wedding vendor we have the pleasure of working with at every Hitched Happy Hour! Christine Danderand of Blush Makeup Artistry provides a unique beauty experience for brides on their wedding day.  Years of experience have taught Christine a thing or two about the dos and don’ts of wedding makeup and she was kind enough to share some of her favorite tips and tricks with us.

1. Be Yourself

When choosing a makeup look for your wedding day, don’t stray too far from how you normally wear your makeup. Your wedding pictures will last forever and you don’t want to regret going with a “trend” instead of looking just like you.

Christine offers brides makeup trials at every Hitched Happy Hour

2. Take Care of Your Skin

About 6 months before the wedding, consult a skin care specialist for a facial and regular treatments. Go in for your final facial no later than one month before the big day.

ONE…a birthday bash recap

It’s been a week since our 1st birthday and our ONE…a birthday bash event. If you weren’t able to make it out we wanted to give you a little peek at what you missed!

Modern Trousseau Trunk Show/ Style Show

Elegant Modern Trousseau gowns from the style show!

Our night included a style show where we featured the one and only Modern Trousseau wedding dresses. With the Modern Trousseau trunk show last weekend as well we were pretty busy, but the models gave these wedding dresses great movement and made them look even better than they do on the hangers!  A special thanks to our models Nicole, Brooke, & Stephanie.

This is our personal thank you to all of the vendors who helped us make this event a success. Cuppycakes‘ macaroons were a huge hit!

The style show couldn’t have been any better with out A Final TakeBlush Makeup Artistry, & Dani Cooper. It was a great night full of fun, friends and laughter!
