Review of the Little Black Dress Revue

25 February 2011

Tonight's event, the Little Black Dress Revue held at the Noah Liff Opera Center was fabulous! Not only is the venue beautiful, and a personal favorite of Mr. Collier & myself because we are having our reception there, but everything and I mean everything was on point! Co-sponsored by Music City Events and photographer Gregory Byerline this bridal event was unlike any other. There were no lines, no pushing, no shoving, and no fake incentives. The Little Black Dress Revue is designed as a cocktail party and with the couple in mind. The whole entire mission of the event is to allow a couple to experience what it would be like at an actual reception with only one caterer, baker, photographer, floral designer, bartending service, live band, and even rentals like tables, chairs, linens, and the ultra hip lounge area.

The spread of food from Two Fat Men Catering represented by Karen  and her team was stellar. From the chicken and waffle bites and strawberry bruschetta to the chocolate covered bacon, every bite was savory and I couldn't help but go up for thirds and fourths.

Cakes were presented by the infamous Maples Cakes. Tonight they brought an array of beautifully designed cakes and samples to savor! A slice of strawberry and traditional while almond were both tasty!

The night would not have been the same without the wonderful contribution of Hamilton Bartending Services who created a feminine and masculine signature cocktail specifically for the Little Black Dress Revue. The same is true for Parking Management Co. for their care and responsibility when it comes to valet parking. They allowed Mr. Collier and myself to get in and out quickly and efficiently.

Musical entertainment was provided by NashVegas Allstars a four piece band with a female lead singer that rocked classics and personal favorites such as "Party in the USA", "Jesse's Girl", and "Don't Stop Believing." The NashVegas Allstars demonstrated a lot of versatility with reggae tunes to classic do-wop.

Belle Fleurs Design provided the beautiful greenery and centerpieces throughout the room. I had an opportunity to chat with Bonnie at the event tonight and I would love to have the opportunity to work with her in the near future. I love how each table had a different centerpiece that was individually themed: one big and elegant, one rustic with candles and moss, and one traditional hydrangea arrangement. Bonnie is a joy. She assured me that Belle Fleurs accommodates all budgets and she seemed incredibly willing to work with all budget ranges.

Design in August a custom stationary, invitation, and all other paper needs supplier has such cute ideas for any wedding invitation suite. From stampers to personalized cocktail stirers Designs can do it all!

One of the most unique of all the vendors was First Dance who specialize in choreographing first dances, hence the name, and more importantly provides dance lessons for couples to brush up on those rudimentary skills such as the foxtrot and salsa. The most fun was owners Barry and Dari (husband and wife duo) taught a few brave couples (including Mr. Collier & myself) a short country line dance routine during the cocktail party! We had so much fun!
