Roanoke Wedding Network Hosts Real Wedding at 4th Annual “Wedding Crawl”
On Sunday, April 3, the Roanoke Wedding Network will host the fourth annual Wedding Crawl, with all proceeds supporting the programs and services provided by the Roanoke Valley SPCA to homeless animals and those in need in our community. In addition, there will be a live wedding to take place in one of the five venues, incorporating a real, local couple and their guests into the event.
The Roanoke Wedding Crawl is a unique bridal show experience for Roanoke where five prominent downtown venues are setup as actual wedding receptions, with the help from local wedding vendors to showcase their businesses to future brides. Venues will feature caterers, cake bakers, florists, lighting experts, photographers, photo booths, DJs, wedding planners, dress shops, salons and so much more. Brides are encouraged to come hungry, as the caterers are ready to feed attendees. Attendees can walk to each venue, though transportation will also be available.
Venues include Center in the Square, Patrick Henry Ballroom, Taubman Museum of Art, Blue 5 – The White Room, and Charter Hall. More than 50 vendors will be participating to showcase their services and products to future brides and grooms. Attendees will have opportunities to talk at length with vendors, sample food and wedding cakes, get a mini manicure and updo, as well as win fantastic prizes such as a submission in bridebook magazine amongst many others. As the main sponsor, AmRhein’s Fine Jewelry will offer a gift certificate to their store for a grand prize winner.
The date of the event is Sunday, April 3, 2016, from 1:00pm to 5:00pm (rain or shine). Registration will be open from 12:00pm-2:00pm. Guests may purchase tickets in advance for $15. Tickets will also be sold at the door for $25.
Since October 2013, the Roanoke Wedding Network has donated approximately $9,090 to the Roanoke Valley SPCA. All proceeds from the Roanoke Wedding Crawl ticket sales are donated to the Roanoke Valley SPCA. It’s a partnership that brides seem to love!
Tickets may be ordered through the Roanoke Valley SPCA website. The deadline to order in advance is April 1, 2016.
Registration will be held from 12:00pm-2:00pm at the Roanoke City Market Building. RVSPCA is providing volunteers to staff the registration areas. At registration, guests will each be given a goody bag and map of the different venues participating as well as their starting venue. Once guests leave their first assigned venue, they may visit other participating venues at their leisure.
