ROK1ROK

“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!

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

Wedding Essentials Bridal University Recap

 

Sunday, Ready or Knot was at the Omaha World Herald Wedding Essentials Bridal University. This event was full of fun, as our models graced the runway in some of our fave gowns and we chatted with lots of enthusiastic brides-to-be. The fashion show gave brides and bridesmaids a taste of what we have in our new store.

Hitched Happy Hour Recap

The Kelly Faetanini Trunk Show gowns are all packed up and out the door. We had a fabulous time with our brides trying on these gorgeous new styles from the latest designer to find it’s way into Ready or Knot. The highlight of the 2 week trunk show was by far Hitched Happy Hour! Couldn’t make it to the event? No need to worry! We’ll bring you up to speed on everything you missed with our Hitched Happy Hour Recap.

 Kelly Faetanini Trunk Show

We kicked off the evening with Dani Cooper of Boss Studios and Christine Danderand of Blush Makeup Artistry. Within a few minutes there was a line to get complementary hair and makeup trials from these beauty experts. Some brides even booked their hair and makeup on the spot!

Hitched Happy Hour

While ladies waited to see Christine and Dani they sipped on champagne and munched on our gourmet rice krispies. There was something to satisfy every taste bud. Cookies & Cream treats were a huge hit with chocolate lovers and Strawberry Shortcake was a pleasantly surprising flavor.

Hitched Happy Hour

Brides enjoyed all this before ever looking through our Kelly Faetanini Trunk Show gowns. They came from all around with friends and family to try on these wedding dresses that we had been so anxiously waiting for. Every single design was a huge success, and we look forward to getting our own samples in the store soon!

Recap

The highlight of the evening was a combination of two ladies who found exactly what they were looking for at Hitched Happy Hour. A mother of the bride walked away with a dress, a hairstyle, and a makeup artist for her daughter’s wedding day. The smile on her face made the evening worth it. We also had a young bride say yes to the dress! After debating between 2 gowns in front of the Hitched audience, she beamed as she chose her dream dress.

These events are always the highlight of our week. We invite you to join us for our next event – be on the lookout for details!

Hitched Happy Hour is This Thursday!

Kelly Faetanini Trunk Show

We’ve had a fabulous time sharing the latest styles from designer Kelly Faetanini since the trunk show gowns arrived last Friday.
