The Crème de la Crème of wedding shows returns to Vancouver this month

Feb 2 2023, 7:16 pm

The most romantic month of the year has arrived, and Vancouver’s preeminent wedding show has returned to help lovebirds prepare for their big day in style.

Crème de la Crème Grand Wedding Showcase is happening on Sunday, February 19, at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver.

“The most opulent event of the year” will treat guests to delectable sweet and savoury food tastings, photoshoots, and a magical haute couture-style fashion show. There will also be over 60 local artisans and vendors to meet.

CountDown Events’ founder and planner Soha Lavin created Crème de la Crème in 2004 to show the industry what the world of weddings infused with artistry would look like.

“We were the first to introduce ballerinas during a fashion show – a first in the world of weddings. Live art like ballet and music is beautiful, it is memorable,” said Lavin in a release. “People weren’t sure at first, but it was a big hit and something we’ve continued to do. Creating awe-inspiring moments that create trends is why we wanted to bring back Crème de la Crème this year.”
