Princess & Paws ... a bridal show with bite

If you're in close proximity of Poughkeepsie, NY (and even if you're not), this Sunday the place to be is the first ever PRINCESS & PAWS BRIDAL EXTRAVAGANZA.

The brainchild of wedding coordinator Karin Hlywiak, this show promises to deliver - and deliver B.I.G.

That stands for Bridal Inspiration Galore.

Okay, so I made that up .. but it seems to me that it might truly be the case.

What with a belly dancer, strolling tables, a cigar lounge, complimentary hors d'oeuvres supplied throughout the afternoon by Cosimo's, an amazing cupcake and candy bar, a unique fashion show which includes doggy couture and a fabulous hair show, and 30 of the hottest wedding professionals in the Hudson Valley area (including fun photo booths, unusual mode-of-transportation providers, officiants, ice carvers, and entertainers .. just to mention just a few) you just can't go wrong. On top of that (and I haven't mentioned everything) every couple gets a free photoshoot (given to them on CD to take home), and there's free Nanny Service - so that brides with children can enjoy themselves knowing that their little ones are being cared for.

Is your head spinning yet?

It should be!

This promises to be a wonderful event which you really shouldn't miss.

It's going to be held at the Poughkeepsie Tennis Club - the only country club in the area which allows non-members to hold their events on the premises.

And if all of this wasn't special enough, Karin will be donating a portion of the proceeds to Wish Upon A Wedding - a non-profit organization providing wedding ceremonies and vow renewals to couples facing terminal illnesses or life-altering situations. Look for a blogpost about this incredible organization on Monday, incidentally.

Tickets to the event are $5 in advance and $7 at the door - and you can register here.

Each bride will receive a gift from the organizer - and various prizes will be won throughout the afternoon. Make sure to hang on to the ticket you're given at the door!

So, by way of tapering off, here are the four Ws.

What: Princess & Paws Bridal Extravaganza

Where: The Poughkeepsie Tennis Club @ 135 South Hamilton Street, Poughkeepsie NY 12601

When: Sunday, September 12th 2010 from 12pm - 5pm

Who: You, your entourage, and the groom.

Come meet the people who can make your wedding spectacular .. and have fun to boot.

Now ... for those of you still wondering what a strolling table is ... take a look at this video. I can't promise Marie Antoinette on Sunday, but whatever Karin puts out there is sure to be stellar.

With luck I will be there with my trusty SLR - so if you're too far away to drop in, fear not .. I got you covered!
