3. DC area brides in the market for a caterer - RSVP Catering is hosting a tasting event for brides next Tuesday, June 8th. (Here's an invite). RSVP has working relationships with many of the DC metro area's premier venues, and they offer menus that change with the season. Large scale tasting events like this one are the best way to gauge a caterer's potential for your reception. Serving dozens or even hundreds of people visually appealing, well prepared, and most imporantly delicious food is no easy task. An intimate trial run for just you and your groom may be nice, but it isn't representative of all the skills a caterer needs to pull off a seamlessly executed wedding reception service. Plus, you won't have to worry about what to have for dinner next Tuesday.
5. 632 on Hudson is one of Manhattan's most unique and intimate venues. This weekend the stunning restored historic property will serve as host to the Illegal Wedding Fair. The event is an opportunity "to celebrate love for all", and will feature gay-friendly vendors for all the commitment ceremony essentials. It is hard to believe in one of the most liberal areas of the country, same-sex couples are not afforded the same marital rights as other couples. We think this event is a great way to bring attention to the cause, and love the attention grabbing name. Tickets here.
