Lindsay and Steve Hileman - November 2009

So, we're trying to be a little more diligent about posting events. So, hopefully, over the next few weeks, we will have several more fabulous events to showcase (from both last year and this year). This was a gorgeous wedding at the Dayton Art Institue. This venue has risen to be one of my top 10 favorite venues! Lindsay and Steve (the bride and groom) are very artsy and their flower choices definitely echoed that...lots of different designs and textures. In addition to the vendors indicated on the design boards, the event was expertly executed by Kristen & Rick Kloth of Tres Chic Events and the cake was designed by Barb Harvey of Incredible Endings!

The Details…
6-7 PM: Registration Arrive at The Bridal Studio (610 Main St) between 6 and 7 PM, wearing your donation dress (don’t forget to wear something underneath– you’ll be dressless at the end of the night!) By committing to donate your dress at the end of the evening, your $10 admission fee will be waived. 9-10 PM: Prizes.

What if I have more than one dress? You can donate them all at once or give them to friends to donate for a fun girls night or some even hold on to the extras so they’ll have one for next year!

What happens at the end of the night when it’s time to donate my gown? First of all, remember to wear a pair of shorts and/or a tank top under your dress so you’re able to go out in public at the end of the night. When you’re ready to donate your dress, simply go to Pachinko and someone will be there to guide you to a changing area and we’ll have t-shirts on hand for you.

Are boys allowed? Yes!! The more the merrier! If you have an extra dress on hand, you can give it to them to donate or they can pay the $10 donation fee. Heck, if they want to wear a dress, that would be even more fun!

What condition should the dress be in? We ask that you donate gently-used dresses that you think high school girls would like to wear to prom or other formal events. We also accept accessories too, so if you have some shoes, bags and jewelry that you think a girl would like to wear, please donate it also!

Where do I sign up? You can register between 6-7 at The Bridal Studio, or please visit one of our “Registration Hot Spots” at Sara Benjamin’s, Soho Boutique and The Wardrobe. These locations are also available for donations and dress drop-offs!
6-9 PM: Pub Crawl

Your admission will get you drink specials at Cock & Bull, Pachinko, Strasse Haus and Zola’s in Mainstrasse Covington. Have fun wearing your dress for one final night out!

We will all gather at Pachinko to announce raffle winners and give prizes for the “Best-Dressed” “Biggest Bridal Party of Matching Dresses” and many more!! Changing stations will be available where attendees can donate a dress and receive a t-shirt in exchange. The first 100 guests will also receive a bag filled with gifts from our various sponsors.
FAQs about the BBBash!

What if I have a dress to donate but I don’t want to wear it? We encourage everyone to wear their dress since it adds to the fun, but if you’re just not feeling it, you can still donate your dress when you register and your admission fee will be waived!

I want to wear a dress but I’m not ready to give it up yet, what do I do? If you’re not ready to part with the dress yet, but you’d still like to wear it, you can either bring another dress for your admission or simply pay the $10 donation fee and party in your dress all night!

Thank you to our amazing sponsors who will be entertaining you,and providing you with amazing gifts and prizes! Hosted by The Bridal Studio.
