Ever wish you could do a trial run of your wedding day? Where you could see how your lighting will look in your reception space, how your rentals will look at your ceremony, how your florist’s creations will size up, and how your band will look and sound? Well, we can’t line up your exact wedding day details, but if you’re a bride getting married in Wilmington, North Carolina, we’ve got the next best thing!
Courtyards & Cobblestones is a highly curated wedding planning and inspiration event designed to help you find your wedding day style and plan your Wilmington wedding, taking place January 14 and 15th, 2017!
Every January in Wilmington, North Carolina, a group of hand-picked creatives brings to life seven mock weddings and showcases them to brides through a downtown walking tour: Courtyards & Cobblestones, A Walk Through Wedding Row.
Your ticket gets you access to seven fully-styled venues in Wilmington, each one designed by a different crack team of the best wedding vendors in Southeastern North Carolina. Each team creates a fully styled wedding and reception at their chosen venue, allowing brides to experience their artistry firsthand.
On the C&C Tour, couples take part in a wedding planning experience like none other with live music, table settings, flowers, lighting, cake tastings, savory samplings, beverages, photo booths, and incredible giveaways from REEDS Jewelers, Pressed Cotton, Party Suppliers & Rentals, High Performance Lighting & Power, and Courtyard by Marriott Downtown/Historic District.
For the past six years, this creative wedding event has provided a relaxed and inspirational atmosphere for couples to plan their wedding. Each bride also walks away with a swag bag full of goodies from the C&C creatives and sponsors as well as several bridal magazines (including Southern Weddings, of course!).
