Brides-to-be will be pampered at Enchant Me wedding show

By Laura Anderson Shaw, landerson@qconline.com – Oct 22, 2016

You have stacks of bridal magazines filled with neon-colored sticky notes, a Pinterest wedding board packed with pins, and multiple never-ending to-do lists, reminding you to choose cake flavors, bridesmaids’ dresses, centerpieces, shoes, tuxedos and flowers. And you’ll need a DJ, a photographer, a caterer, a venue — and the lists go on and on.

But where in the world do you start? How will you transform a stack of paper and a bulletin board living in your smartphone into the wedding of your dreams without turning into Bridezilla in the process?

The third annual Enchant Me, The QC Wedding Event, has your back. It will take place from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 3, at the University Club QC, 1518 5th Ave., Moline. Tickets are $7 in advance, and they are available at QCOnline.com/enchantme and at the customer service counter at The Dispatch/Argus, 1720 5th Ave., Moline.

Enchant Me — presented by The Dispatch/Argus/QCOnline, University Club QC and Taylor-DeBord Catering — will offer more than you might expect from a typical bridal show. It will feature a fun, girls’-night-out atmosphere, and attendees will be pampered while they visit with representatives of area wedding businesses and learn about what each has to offer.

“By design, there’s something for everyone planning their special day,” said Valerie Yazbec, chief revenue officer for the Moline Dispatch Publishing Co. “The size of this wedding event allows for casual conversation with the vendors and is a great opportunity to learn from their experience.”

Participating vendors include:

— University Club QC
— Taylor-DeBord Catering
— Anytime DJ
— Goal Weight Clinic
— Hauberg Center
— Hy-Vee Floral, Silvis
— Johannes Bus Service
— Lagomarcino’s
— Lamps Florist
— Main Event Catering
— Mary Kay, Angelique Saddoris
— Olde Towne Bakery
— Profile by Sanford
— QC Wedding Rentals
— Radisson on John Deere Commons
— RE/MAX River Cities, LaTisha Howlett
— Skeffington’s Formal Wear
— Stoney Creek Hotel

Ms. Yazbec said she is very pleased with the variety of vendors that will be on hand.

“I think the success of the event is largely due to the intimacy and elegance of the venue,” she said. “Enchant Me offers attendees the opportunity to enjoy luxurious Old World ambiance while learning about fun, trendsetting ideas for weddings.”

Attendees will be served complimentary hors d’oeuvres and sparkling wine while they enjoy food and wedding cake samples, along with an up-close look at wedding attire and favors, Ms. Yazbec said. Brides-to-be and their friends and family members can feel fabrics and linens, and see table arrangements, flowers, centerpieces and other decor.

Katie Otten, manager at Lagomarcino’s in Moline, said the company will showcase a small sampling of the various favor boxes it carries, as well as some of its chocolates.

“We’re handing out samples of chocolates as well,” she said.

Ms. Otten said Lagomarcino’s offers favor boxes in a number of colors so brides and grooms may choose whatever matches their colors or theme. The boxes hold one, two or four pieces of candy.

Ms. Otten said the folks at Lagomarcino’s enjoy Enchant Me and what it does for area brides and grooms and their families. “It’s a little more elegant. We just like … the presence of it,” she said.

It’s a smaller show, she said, which makes it easier for attendees to talk with vendors. Plus, a number of the vendors who will be in attendance are from the downtown Moline area.

It shows attendees that “downtown Moline has stuff to offer for weddings,” she said.

Lisa Bragg, retail store manager at Skeffington’s Formal Wear in Davenport, said Skeffington’s plans to show attendees tuxes in navy and various grays, as well as an “upcoming new one that is available for next year, which is a burgundy.”

Ms. Yazbec promised that people who attend the show will not be disappointed.

“Our wedding specialists participating in this event are truly the best the Quad-Cities has to offer,” she said.

Signature Couple’s Retreat (2 hours)
An experience unlike any other, the Signature Couple’s Retreat inspires laughter, playfulness, connection and true relaxation. Couples begin with a mineral wellness bath in a Japanese soaker tub and then enjoy some alone time with a palette of fresh, all-natural body scrubs and full-body mud bath. After rinsing off in the private outdoor rain shower, the retreat continues with a side-by-side sixty-minute couple’s massage in the seaside suite using warmed bamboo and polished stones in conjunction with an all-natural essential oil blend and locally harvested ingredients.

Complete Serenity, Private After-Hours Spa Experience (3 hours)
This romantic wellness experience allows couples to begin the evening with the Signature Couples Retreat or Wellness Kur Therapy and Massage. Upon conclusion of all spa treatments, couples enjoy a private candlelit dinner under the stars in the spa garden.

Traveler’s Reprieve Retreat (3 hours)
The two-day retreat is a therapeutic and restorative blend of three treatments: The Traveler’s Reprieve Massage, Magnesium Massage and Natural Facial. Designed with wellness in mind, all treatments help restore hydration, and bring the body, skin and emotional state back into harmony.

Signature Retreat (2 hours)
The Signature Retreat includes three signature therapies: body treatment, massage and facial. Warmed bamboo and polished stones are woven throughout the series of treatments in conjunction with an all-natural essential oil blend and locally harvested ingredients as well as a restorative 16-point acupressure facial massage.

Wellness Kur Therapy and Massage (2 hours)
Windjammer Landing’s holistic couples experiences are comprised of four nourishing phases: bathing, moor mud wrap, private outdoor rain shower and hydration massage. Kur Therapy draws upon rich natural resources such as thermal mineral water, purifying algae, mud, essential oils and herbs to rejuvenate the body.

Mineral Wellness Kur Ritual: Hand-harvested, concentrated mineral crystals contain a rare balance of 60 essential minerals and trace elements to promote overall health and reestablish the essential mineral balance of the body. A nourishing bath for two is followed by an organic moor mud wrap, and then a full-body application of a mineral-rich crème mixed with an organic revitalizing body oil. A restorative 16-point acupressure facial massage completes this luxurious couple’s experience.
