Special Event | Bridal Open House

old-cigar-warehouse-open-house-047

Nothing like a little #flashbackfriday to an event that we love hosting! Our Summer Bridal Open House was held on July 21st last month. With a jam-packed “line-up” of vendors, we were excited to not only showcase two different themes in our venue, but all our venue has to offer – especially paired with one or many of the featured vendors!

Guests were welcomed on our deck before proceeding into the Main Hall down our grand staircase. Greeted by the sounds of The Erica Berg Collective‘s talented trio, the heavenly smells of CHEF 360 Catering and Holly’s Cakes, and Liquid Catering‘s bar featuring Lemon Coconut Cake Punch signature drink, a happy vibe quickly filled the room. The rest of the Main Hall showcased both a ceremony and reception set-up to showcase what most commonly happens in our space. The “altar” and aisle were donned in gorgeous florals by Renee Burroughs Design while cocktail tables and small dining tables showcased centerpieces created by Twigs.

In the cellar, guests had the opportunity to mingle with a variety of vendors who have worked in our space before. All of the vendors represented many categories that most couples often want to hired for their big day.

Throughout the event, guests were welcomed to get a tour of our space as well as sit down with Sales Reps for mini consultations. These consultations were an opportunity for potential new couples to get a proposal and for current couples to make changes to their current invoices or ask questions about their event! Thanks to the creative minds of TriCounty Rentals and Frilly Bloomers, we had a beautiful tablescape that reflected the theme of the cellar for guests to view as well!

In addition to vendors that work in our space on the day of a wedding, we also had some local-vendors/friends showcase their services to our guests! Gregory’s Formal Wear On the Go! was available for future-grooms as was The White Magnolia Bridal Collection for any brides who hadn’t purchased their bridal gowns. We were also graced by Hilton Greenville, The White Box and Cotton Rouge & Company!

We love this event and look forward to working alongside such talented vendors from our preferred vendor list again soon! Details on this Bridal Open House and any upcoming Bridal Open Houses at www.oldcigarwarehouse.com.

Thanks to John with Cureton Photography for capturing the event!

12657944_1104220559612067_4638513875439771351_o

Today’s Vendor Spotlight goes to David Gregory from Gregory’s Formal Wear On the Go!

 

070-ocw-open-house

Greenville has been home to the Gregory family business since 1939 when Mr. and Mrs. F. L. Gregory opened Gregory’s Laundry Cleaners – a business with two generations following only to expand the family business. In 1972, their sons saw potential in a growing market and decided to expand the business into formal wear rentals. Grandsons of the founders, Buddy and David Gregory, continued to operate Gregory’s Formal Wear with the same dedication and premiere service as their predecessors. Their hard work consistently earned them the title of “Best Men’s Fashions of the Upstate.

beginningsb_w

Within the past two and a half years, David Gregory launched a new branch in the form of Gregory’s Formal Wear “On the Go!” With forty years of experience under his belt, Gregory has taken customer service to an entirely new level. He offers personal visits to the client’s place of choice in order to take proper measurements for a perfect fit. For out-of-town customers, David is happy to work with them directly over the phone or email to guide them through the process of obtaining professional measurements at no cost to them. This is a great service for those out of town grooms or groomsmen to ensure that they have a perfectly fitting and high quality suit waiting for them when they arrive in Greenville.

Gregory Formal Wear “On the Go!” is aligned with the premiere supplier of extremely high quality men’s formal wear in the country. To take the premiere service to the next level, Gregory delivers the custom outfits to the client’s home or office, or if preferred, the outfit may be picked up at the office location at 1322 East Washington Street.

They will be at our open house on July 21st available to talk about all of their services, so be sure to check them out!
