Wedding Palace Bridal Show

Last weekend we had the fantastic opportunity to showcase a little bit of what we do, at the Wedding Palace Bridal Show at the Shaw Centre in Ottawa. The generous people at
Quality Entertainment inquired about applying some of our vinyl to their white wedding dance floor in the "Inspiration" section of the show along with other great local vendors who were displaying their inspirational wares and talents, like Groovy Linen Rentals whose colour choices were a perfect fit with our Dark Brown Dance Floor decals. We can not say THANK YOU enough times, for giving us this opportunity.

Applying custom and personalized vinyl to a wedding dance floor is relatively "new" and is still a little known option for weddings at this time, but it is something that we have been showcasing whenever possible as one more option to help personalize your wedding day, along with the many other ways our vinyl can be applied to your special day as well.

Again thank you to Scott and Bryan over at Quality Entertainment!

Best Day Ever Votes Are In

Just a quick update to everyone who has been following the Best Day Ever event that was recently held this past weekend. For those who havnt been following it was 2 mock weddings in one location with two teams showcasing some of the best talents and services the wedding industry has to offer. Two completely different styles of weddings were staged for The Best Day Ever as each team worked hard to gain your votes. The voting stage is over and was tallied up from the ballots of those who were in attendance as well as the use of hashtags on various social media platforms (#teamtoast #bestdayeverottawa in our case) and a winner was announced. We are thrilled to announce that our team was declared the winner of the Best Day Ever.


Best Day Ever Winning Team, TEAMTOAST

With that said, all the vendors who were on hand this day were all WINNERS, there truly was a lot of amazing , inspirational and fun talent on hand and either one of these staged weddings could have easily won. Just take a look at all the pictures from both teams on instagram, twitter or the various facebook pages. (use the hashtags #teamsparks and #teamtoast or #bestdayeverottawa)

Best Day Ever Ottawa

This past week has been a busy one for us here at sparklingexpressions as we prepared  for the Best Day Ever event held in Ottawa at the Museum of Nature. For those who have not been following, this was a wedding showcase and contest taking some of the best and most talented in the wedding industry with respect to their specialties and having 2 mock weddings to compete for votes. (team Toast and team Sparks).

sparklingexpressions was proud to be a member of team Toast and had the honour of making custom monograms of the bride and grooms initials and applying them to some very elegant ghost chairs as well as a dance floor decal for the dance room. We were also setup just outside the dinner lounge to meet and mingle with all the attendees at this years event and what an amazing time was had by all.

here are some pictures we managed to snap during the initial setup of the night.
