The Napa Valley Luxury Wedding Show is an event I never thought I would attend, but somehow I had the misfortune of staying at a hotel that hosted this prestigious event, and suddenly found myself surrounded by gaudy wedding paraphernalia and anxious bridezillas.

The lavish event was an explosion of feathers and tulle and all things gilded and tacky. There was also live music by wedding band hopefuls, a very delicious wedding cake tasting and a fantastic photo booth. At the end of the day I found myself actually enjoying the event far more than I ever should have, considering the fact that I wasn’t even engaged…
