Wed Bash 2013 Celebrates Chicago Wedding Vendors
MDM Entertainment was a proud sponsor and *the* source of jams at the 3rd annual Wed Bash Chicago. A super fun networking event for Chicago wedding vendors.
The event, hosted by Wedding Guide Chicago, was held at Pinstripes in Oak Brook. By the way, if you’ve never considered Pinstripes as an awesome venue for your wedding or event, think again. They provide a unique, roomy, elegant space with a staff that will accommodate your specific needs.
I had a great time mingling with the Chicago wedding vendors and nomming off a buffet of cheeses, meats, caprese on a stick, chicken skewers and more tasty treats. Mix that with all of the cake and dessert tasting by vendors such as Toni Patisserie & Cafe, The Baking Institute and Wells Street Popcorn and I was rolling out the door at the end of the night.
While checking out all of the great vendor booths and mingling around the event, I became mesmerized by and made a beeline for the Cotton Candy machine. Oh, but this isn’t just any cotton candy. This cotton candy is less than 100 calories per serving, fat free, gluten free, nut free, there are no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, all Kosher ingredients, dairy free, 100% organic sugar…no pesticides or GMO’s! I had a choice of Margarita or Salted Caramel. I chose the Margarita and I was HAPPY. What a fun idea for corporate events, bar/bat mitvahs, you name it!
I was getting thirsty, so I decided to give the Goose Island people a visit. What a concept here! Instead of pairing wines and food, they pair beer with food. Beer and food pairing solutions for every occasion. Dreamy, right? The company’s experts “will help you choose the right beers for every flavor and every occasion as you plan your event.” I had the beef brisket crostini with a side of Pepe Nero. Delish! Tim Lane, the Director of Catering, was so engaging and excited about the company. I’m excited about them too!
OK, if you are planning a wedding, I want you to focus here. WedSocial. Remember when it was fun to buy all of the disposable cameras and leave them at each table and everyone would take fun and crazy photos? This takes that same idea to another level. Imagine not having to collect all of the cameras, bringing them all in to be developed, only to have half of the photos end up blurry, unrecognizable, and THEN how do you share them with all of your friends?
“With WedSocial, images stream effortlessly between all of your guests mobile devices and your website. The best part is, everything is stored in one location for you to easily download after the wedding.”
Guests download the WedSocial app to their phone. Your event gets assigned a name or a “code”. Guests take photos at your wedding. They upload them to the WedSocial site on their phone and everyone you give the “code” to can view the photos of the entire event, real time. Anyone, anywhere. They also have a partner program. Get bucks to refer people. Loves it!
Mike was chill all night while he was mixin’ the beats. Hard not to be when you have a DJ Booth made ENTIRELY OF ICE!
Nadeau’s Ice Sculptures, Inc. provided some fun designs. A couple of benches (they were perfectly comfortable), high tables, champagne holders and a bride and groom. That DJ booth was off the hook! What do you think?
All in a all, a great event! Thank you to Wedding Guide Chicago for putting together this event. Please refer to weddingguidechicago.com for ideas and guidance with your wedding. Thanks also to all of the sponsors for a fun night!
