To all of you grooms who are going to make her day absolutely perfect, Durham-based Virtue Event Planning and Consulting Inc. wants to give you your day as well. Couples who are preparing to tie the knot are invited to come to The Invisible Groom, an exclusive wedding event that will take place at Top of the Hill's Great Room Sunday, Feb. 24 from 1 to 4 p.m.
Whether you're looking for some helpful hints on bachelor party planning or budget tips for your honeymoon, Virtue Event's team and a selection of local vendors will be there to provide you with all of the information you need. While you're there, you can also enjoy beer tasting and raffles, all within the "man cave" atmosphere of The Great Room.
Don't worry, ladies: There's something for you as well. The Invisible Groom will also feature a bridal boutique with information on wedding planning, wine tasting, wedding dresses, florists, stationery, makeup artists and more essentials for the bride-to-be.
"We want soon-to-be grooms to be as excited about their wedding day as brides," says Virtue Events founder Joye Speight. "They are an important part of the equation, and that's the point we're emphasizing with this event."
We know you're saving every penny for your special day, so we have some good news for you - this event is free to the public, but guests are encouraged to RSVP, as space is limited. To register for the event, click here.
Based in Durham, Virtue Event Planning and Consulting Inc. is a full-service event planning company with passionate, certified event planners and designers who specialize in contract negotiation, on-site management, design concept development and much more. Joye, who is a Durham native, says she has been impressed with how many talented individuals there are in her very own city.
“It is this asset that has allowed me to push the envelope creatively in the events that I’ve planned locally,” she says. “I love that Durham is big enough to be recognized on a national level and small enough that you have the ability to connect with the people.”
In addition to The Invisible Groom, Virtue Events will also hold the Virtue’s Bridal Beauty Bar event, which will take place at The Courtyard by Marriott in Chapel Hill on March 10.
