Something Blue is a new and trendy show that showcases all things details for brides and future brides. With the wedding season ahead of us, it was the perfect event to help finish off the ultimate look for one getting married, attending a wedding or one that just wants to look fab. Not only was it a fun girls night event, but all of it was for a very good cause. The small $10 entrance fee earned from the event was donated to Stanford’s Ronald McDonald House.

Something new, something borrowed, and something blue are all wedding traditions that can sometimes get overlooked as brides overwhelm themselves with the larger aspects a wedding can encompass. Thus, focusing on these small but important details, “Something Blue” showcased a variety of fun, yet classy, unconventional wedding options that are sure to modernize simple, bridal traditions, into personalized wedding memories. The event will showcased upcoming lingerie and bridal gown trends, jewelry and accessories designers, favor and stationery vendors and so much more. Guest enjoyed amazing entertainment, food and free flowing Something Blue Cocktails. It was definetly the perfect girls night outing.  Hosted by, talented event producer and stationary designer, Karla Randolph “The Card Lady”, this in one event no bride or bridesmaid should ever miss.
