A Bride’s Mafia Afterhours Bridal Show at Music Hall Nov. 19!

A Bride’s Mafia has its third annual Afterhours Bridal Show coming up at Music Hall November 19th from 6-9pm! Afterhours Bridal Show isn’t your typical (and boring) wedding expo event! They have lots of fun, interactive, and relaxed ways to find the wedding vendors who are perfect for you! Click here to read the story we did on my friend Nidhi who’s behind it all!  The last four Afterhours Shows have brought in more than 2,000 people in three hours, so they’re pretty amazing!

At the event, brides, grooms, and their families will be able to meet and greet with 75 of Cincinnati’s best wedding vendors. You can preview the latest wedding trends and find everything you need under one roof to make your special day perfect, from the moment you get engaged to the time you walk down the aisle! While you’re there, make sure you stop by the pampering room, in which brides and their guests receive complimentary hair and makeup applications!

The best part about Afterhours is that admission is FREE! (my favorite price! haha!) Cincy Chic will have a booth there, too! We’ll be giving away a salon gift certificate to one lucky lady who visits our booth, so definitely stop by and see us! Hope to see you there! It’s one show you will not want to miss! RSVP here!


FREE Pamper Event for Moms Aug. 21!

I’m not officially a mom yet, but boy could I use some pampering. Making a human is NOT easy!! haha! 🙂

But I know my job isn’t going to get any easier… from around-the-clock feedings and diaper changes to (in just a few years!) bustling them around town for social and school activities.

Moms do a lot for their little ones and that’s why my team at Cincy Chic and I host an annual “School’s Back, Moms Relax” event to give moms the opportunity to kick back, relax, and enjoy a night with their other mom friends (or just themselves!) for once now that the kids are headed back to school!

This year, we’re hosting it at the Elements Event and Conference Center, which is owned by my friend Nidhi (she does Afterhours Bridal shows I’m always telling you about). We’re holding it there this year because it can house SO many more vendors (better to pamper you with!) and showcases the runway fashion show so much better! This year, the fashion show is going to feature the latest fall trends from Pink Tulip Club and the hair/makeup will be by The Blowdry Bar…. so excited to see it!

We actually had our first event there (New Year New You – check out the pics here) in January and it was a HUGE success… more than 50 vendors and 600 attendees!

Check out all the info below and RSVP here! This will be my first event back from maternity leave, so I hope to see you there! 🙂

Afterhours Bridal Show Aug. 10!



If you’re hearing wedding bells in your future, listen up! The Afterhours Bridal Show, presented by A Bride’s Mafia, is an event you won’t want to miss!

My good friend Nidhi Bedi – owner of A Bride’s Mafia, a local wedding concierge business – says she has this awesome Afterhours Bridal Show in the works for thanks to popular demand!

It’s going to be on Sunday, August 10, from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Lawrenceburg Event Centre (91 Walnut Street in Lawrenceburg, Indiana), and will feature a number of perks for brides-to-be planning their special day. In fact, this year’s Afterhours Bridal Show features Battle of the Wedding Bands, 75 of Cincinnati’s best wedding vendors, 25 grand reception table set ups and a $20,000 wedding giveaway for one lucky bride-to-be! (yes, you read that right… $20k!!)

The Battle of the Wedding Bands will feature local musicians including The Company, Laika and Naked Karate Girls. Complimentary hair and make-up for brides-to-be will also be offered to event attendees.

The grand reception will offer an array of 25 different table set ups, with combinations, colors and access to florists and decorators first-hand to help make your visions a reality. Attendees will also get to meet and greet with local businesses specializing in wedding photography, hair, food and sweets. 

There is no cost to attend, but they do ask that you register here prior to the event!
