Marry Me at Blue Martini

Dating is like a box of chocolates: You might pick out psycho mama’s boy on Tuesday, ’roided-up dude on Friday, and closet pedophile McDreamy on Sunday. But if you decide to go the opposite route, force him down onto one knee and get a marriage proposal out of him. Then scamper over to Blue Martini this Sunday from 4 to 7 p.m. for Something New, Something Unique, Something Blue, a supercool, not-your-average kind of bridal show.

For $25 per person and $40 per couple, you’ll be able to indulge in a matrimonial wonderland filled with vendors showing off the best in cakes, flowers, entertainment, and more. “This isn’t your typical bridal show. It’s more laid-back, much more relaxed, and you can really interact one on one with the vendors,” gushes Mariel Ruiz Escasena, event planner and founder of Events by Mariel. And you can interact with free drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and cake samples too. There’ll be luscious goodie bags and raffles that’ll win ya gifts from the Trump hotel, Koko & Palenki, and of course wedding accouterments from Mariel herself.
