An Ikea Wedding?

January 25, 2010

Ikea Bridal EventYesterday I went to Ikea with high hopes of leaving with a detailed plan and budget outline for our upcoming kitchen makeover. Sadly, that part of the trip didn’t go too well (I am not at all a fan of their in-store kitchen planning software) but as we went to grab lunch in the restaurant, something caught my eye… a wedding dress. It was very out of place amongst the wayward toddlers and trays of swedish meatballs, but I was so cranky about my failed cabinet planning expedition that I didn’t investigate.

Once I was back home (and done pouting about my lack of kitchen progress) I remembered the oddly placed gown and went to Ikea’s website to investigate. It turns out that the West Chester location is having a “bridal event” tomorrow that they are calling “Simply Perfect, Simply Affordable”. They’ll be sharing “wedding decoration inspirations courtesy of Ikea” and on the site they leave a kind reminder that “the more money you save in decorating your reception, the more money you’ll have to invest in the dress!”

Even better, they are asking attendees to bring gently used formal gowns to the event for donations to Kenzie’s Closet. As a founding co-chair of the Bitter Bridesmaid Bash, Kenzie’s Closet is an organization that is near and dear to me, and I love hearing about any event that furthers their cause.

If you are interested in learning about the wedding decor ideas Ikea West Chester has to share, stop by tomorrow – Tuesday, January 26th, from 4pm to 7pm. There will be complimentary appetizers from the Ikea restaurant, and a chance to win an Ikea gift card! More details are available on their website.

I am so curious what ideas they will be sharing! I am going to do my best to attend and hopefully will have some projects to tell everyone about afterward.
(Anyone care to join me???)
