McElhinney's Bridal Rooms - Exclusive Blogger's Event

Sunday, November 01, 2015

Less than two weeks ago, a huge box was delivered to my front door. Inside was a heart-shaped balloon and a beautiful invitation to the 'Exclusive Blogger's Event at McElhinney's Bridal Rooms.' I couldn't contain my excitement - my first real exclusive blogger's event! This would be the perfect opportunity to network, meet like-minded people and check out the re-opening of the bridal rooms!

Anyone who knows me will know I am obsessed with weddings, dresses in particular! I'm guilty of spending hours upon hours pinning wedding inspiration to my Pinterest board and watching endless repeats of 'Say Yes to the Dress' or 'I Found the Gown.' This event sounded like a magical fairytale!

I arrived at the 'Villa Rose Hotel' in Ballybofey where I was greeted with many delicious gifts, including a box of chocolates, champagne and lots of beauty related treats! My complementary treatments awaited, including an up-do and a session in the thermal suite spa (but we'll get to that later!) I chose a simple side-braid and loose waves, which complemented my 'First & I' outfit perfectly. 



A large group of Irish bloggers mingled in the 'Villa Rose Hotel' lobby and were treated to some lovely cocktails. This gave me the opportunity to meet new faces and get to know some local bloggers. A little while after, we were escorted to McElhinney's by a number of men that were certainly dressed to impress!

After champagne and photographs it was time to see the bridal rooms! The magic began before we had even stepped foot in the suite. A beautiful little fairy guided us through a fantasy themed corridor, complete with fairy lights and enchanting décor.

After an introduction, the bloggers were free to explore! The setting was spectacular. The attention to detail just made it feel that extra bit special. There were four consultation rooms, and each was themed to a season; Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter. Within each room was a model, styled to suit to the season (hair, make-up, dress and décor.) I felt like I was stepping onto a movie set each time I entered a room. Each room contained a number of gifts and treats for us, including candy apples (Autumn) and hot chocolate packs (Winter)! 

I was introduced to the creative team and genius minds behind the decoration and setting, Lily Anabella. They designed and created this magical wonderland, and I can't express what an incredible job they did. I look forward to seeing future work from them and would certainly recommend them to any bride-to-bes. Check out their Facebook page here!
