The wildly popular Midtown Pop-Up Shops are back this weekend with a special theme – weddings and special events. As we enter “wedding season” (which always makes me think of hunting season – remember, don’t shoot the bride no matter how “Bridezilla-ish” she may become!). The “Running of the Brides” at Filene’s Basement was last Friday and brides across the city are in major planning mode. Send them to the Midtown Pop-Up Shops for ideas and inspiration.
This three day event – Friday, March 25 through Sunday March 27, 2011 – is packed full of local vendors who can help you not only plan your wedding, but any other special spring or summer event. Meet amazing wedding vendors, such as Anne Barge and Intimacy, and check out all the other fun experiences, like Smilebooth or custom bride and groom ice cream flavors (or perhaps a signature flavor for your garden party, your family reunion or your baby shower!) from Jake’s Ice Cream. There’s even a special prize giveaway from Exhale Spa – a bridal bootcamp package for one lucky couple!
Pop-Up Shop hours are Friday, March 25 through Saturday, March 26, 11:00 AM until 7:00 PM, and Sunday, March 27, from 12:00 noon until 4:00 PM. Stop by 999 Peachtree Street NE, the anchor location with approximately 15 vendors occupying vacant commercial space, to pick up a map of the locations of all participating vendors – and then shop ’til you drop!
