“Lights. Camera. I DO!” is a unique staged wedding produced by Exclusively Entertainment, a premier full service company in the metro area. After 2,000+ events and having had the pleasure of working hand in hand with hundreds of brides and grooms, EE realized that nothing would make your life easier than to touch, feel and see the products and services offered by vendors live in action, before making valuable investments into one of the most memorable days of your life.
Therefore, on Sunday, February 21st at the Bethesda Marriott Hotel, LCID will once again act out the most important parts of a wedding to help you decide on what to incorporate at yours.
We welcome you to attend either as a “Wedding Guest” from 12pm – 3pm or a “Wedding Crasher” from 3pm – 6pm.
As a WEDDING GUEST, you will enjoy:
THE CEREMONY… [1pm – 1:30pm]
The synopsis of the program will include an actual ceremony with live musicians providing the soundtrack, the bridal party as supporting actors and of course, the bride and groom playing the lead role, while the officiant conducts the marriage.
THE COCKTAIL… [1:30pm – 2pm]
The foyer will be staged similar to a cocktail hour where you will have the opportunity to mingle and socialize with wedding professionals, as you enjoy complimentary beverages and hors d’ourves. Instead of oversized “booths” seen at traditional bridal shows, exhibitors will showcase their work on cocktail tables, putting the focus on the professionals and their work. The cocktail hour will also include visits by special guests who will be modeling the latest trends in bridal gowns, tuxedos, bridal party dresses and more.
THE RECEPTION… [2pm – 3pm]
Once you’re ready to enter the reception, you’ll be in awe of the newly renovated, beautiful Grand Ballroom that will be completely decorated with lighting, pipe and draping, floral arrangements, white dance floor and more! The reception of course will be highlighted by the entrance of the bridal party as they enter with nostalgia and enjoy their first dance together. All wedding guests, will also enjoy tasty food stations courtesy of the Bethesda Marriott and have the option to stay beyond the reception time to mingle with wedding pros!
As a WEDDING CRASHER [3pm – 6pm]
You can skip the “wedding” but still have the opportunity to meet some of the finest wedding professionals in the area.
At LCID, we have done our due diligence to select the most suitable professionals for your special day! A maximum of five exhibitors will be selected in each category, based on their years of experience, professionalism, awards and of course, reviews on trusted websites such as WeddingWire.com, TheKnot.com and Yelp.com.
