All That Glimmers Bridal Event Coming to Pittsburgh

On Saturday, March 15, Arista Catering and Event Planning (AC&EP) will engage with Northern Connection Magazine and A Glimmer of Hope Foundation to take brides from blushing to glimmering.

The first annual “All That Glimmers” Bridal Event will take place in the Grand Room of Holy Trinity Center, the North Hills’ newest banquet and events facility, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. A portion of ticket sales will go directly to the Glimmer of Hope foundation, a locally and nationally-­?recognized foundation dedicated to eliminating breast cancer by raising awareness, furthering research and encouraging young women to seek screenings and treatments.

Brides will be treated to a truly special event, with VIP treatment from start to finish. The day will begin with a 10 a.m. VIP brunch and fashion show. General Admission begins at 11 a.m. Guests can spend their afternoon in the Wedding Fashion Gallery, featuring the latest wedding gown and tuxedo fashions from area vendors. They can also stroll through The Grand Room and plan their weddings with the help of over 50 of Pittsburgh’s best wedding professionals. As an added bonus, brides can meet with local hair and makeup experts and receive tips on what to do on their wedding day. Another highlight of the event will be the Table Top Designs located within The Grand Room and the adjoining Gallery. This space will feature a plethora of business categories designed to give brides a preemptive look and feel of their own wedding reception.

In addition to the excitement of meeting with the wedding professionals and piecing their wedding together, brides will go home with a gift bag filled with vendor coupons and gifts. There will also be a special drawing at 4 p.m. of a gift basket featuring gift cards/gifts from each vendor. Proceeds of this drawing will benefit the Glimmer of Hope foundation, as well.
