Festive Couture Floral and St Louis Best Bridal at Ritz Carlton

Festive Couture Floral and St Louis Best Bridal at Ritz Carlton It’s time to plan that glorious, wonderful wedding at the Best of the Best Show and light luncheon with tea from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 16, at The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis.

Seating is limited in the elegant location, so reservations are advised to set aside a few hours of quality time with the region's best bridal providers.

At the event, sponsored by St. Louis' Best Bridal, brides and their guests visit reliable specialists of wedding sites, boutique fashions, luxurious flowers, luminous lighting, romantic music and more exciting details that capture the essence of the unique occasion they are planning.

The luncheon provides time to chat, as Syndi Bruchesky Sills discovered while planning her wedding to Ken Sills. "I just wanted to say that was the nicest bridal show I've attended yet.  I felt like I got the attention I deserved as a bride-to-be," Syndi said.

Under Grand Ballroom chandeliers, guests are seated and The Ritz serves tea with petits fours, tea breads, miniature sandwiches and fruit tartlets.

Then it's time for the fashion show. It is the first time exquisite gowns of the Victor Harper Couture 2014 fall collection, straight from New York runways and available through Beau Monde Bridal by Wedding Gallery Couture, will be shown in Missouri.

Some of the gowns were featured here on a KPLR afternoon segment.

Brides-to-be continue to visit with providers and relax in the aura of the decorated runway. Each has a chance to win – thinking honeymoon or romantic getaway? – a 3-night/4-day Funjet vacation to Mexico courtesy of Travel Haus of St. Louis, Funjet Vacations and El Dorado Spa Resorts.

The menu chosen by The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis, and St. Louis' Best Bridal befits the treasure of planning time for brides-to-be.
