Though August may is considered a slow month for the city and our hospitality industry – because, heat ­– that’s not the case for the wedding industry. The last few weeks of the month play host to a few bridal shows around the city and beyond. Additionally, we received an appetizing press release we think will add a little flavor to your Big Day.

Town & Country Bridal is hosting a Sareh Nouri trunk show in its new store at 1912 St. Charles Ave., Aug. 19-20.

4 August Bridal Trunk Shows and a Taste of Cajun Pop
Elizabeth and David Roper, wedding designed and planned by Angela Marie Events


Cajun Pop – a Louisiana style popcorn brand – recently announced what we think is a a fun way to send guests (both locals and visitors) home with a little taste of Louisiana. In a recent press release, the company shared an image with a sign that said, “Thanks for popping by.” We think this could also be a fun addition to an engagement party or bridal shower, playing on the idea of a member of the betrothed couple“popping” the question. The popcorn company offer a variety of local flavors – like boiled crawfish and bananas Foster among others – that sound promising for an event treat or a tasty addition to a welcome basket for those guests “popping in” for the wedding.
