Toronto Bridal Brunch was held on Sunday, April 7 at The Globe and Mail Centre event space. It was a lovely Sunday to learn about everything bridal.

The day’s French theme began with a performance by vocalist Melyssa Rose of A Parisian Tale.
Presidential Gourmet catered the luxurious brunch at the pop-up restaurant, “Marie BrunchCafe.” Marie BrunchCafe was so elegant with pink decor and beautiful place settings.
Guests were first offered mimosas and then offered a choice of Eggs Benedict ala Marie, Modern Nicoise Salad, Brulee Soufflé Pancakes and Vegan Sweet Potato Waffle. It was simply delicious. This was followed by a trip to the Lenotre pastry bar, which had a variety of decadent sweets like, Chocolate Dulce De Leche Sable, Strawberry Rose Beignet, Tarte Au Citron, Salted Caramel Eclairs, Decadent Cupcakes, and White Chocolate & Passion Fruit Macarons. It was hard to be satisfied with just one.

There were a lot of bridal oriented workshops during the day.   A List Beauty had a makeup tutorial, Glam Wow! Led by Al Fortier and later in the day, a hair demonstration. Allison McGill, Editor-In-Chief of Weddingbells Magazine, lead a Fearless Wedding Planning panel with Luis Cabrera and Tanya Mora of The Globe and Mail Centre and Jordan Kentris of A Good Day Inc.

Chef Jamie Naka demonstrated innovative entrees for wedding day celebrations.
Sash and Bustle, and Valencienne Bridal had fashion shows featuring their designer wedding gowns.   As the models entered through the floral hallways, they looked radiant in their gorgeous dresses. There were a variety of styles that can suit all different tastes.

There was a pretty vignette that was the backdrop for photos at the event.
In the “Rue de Romance” hall were lots of vendors showcasing their products. Products included L’Occitane en Provence, The Perfume Bar (where one could get a customized perfume), Royal Des Versailles Jewellery, Succulent Chocolates and Sweets, Art of Celebrations, Dream Boudoir Photography, Candy by Sisters, Lollishop, By Catalfo, Blazing Bombs, Willow & Stems, A Parisian Tale, Cakelaine, Plate Occasions, Detailz Couture and Opening Night Flowers.

There was so much to be inspired by at the Toronto Bridal Brunch, and it made planning a wedding so much easier.
