Whidbey Wedding Tour not just about matrimony

This year’s Weddings on Whidbey and Events Tour is not just for the blushing bride.

Settings and decorations for various events will be among many island services and products to be featured at the Weddings on Whidbey and Events Tour Saturday

This year’s Weddings on Whidbey and Events Tour is not just for the blushing bride.

The event, now in its second year, will highlight services and vendors for all types of events, according to Gloria Mickunas, organizer and owner of Whidbey Party Girls!

“The tour isn’t just about getting married,” Mickunas said. “It’s about events.”

Weddings on Whidbey is a fall wedding show designed to showcase select venues and highlight event specialists from Whidbey and Camano islands and the surrounding communities.

At each stop on this chauffeured tour, attendees will find a venue decorated to a specific theme, including Christmas and New Year’s Eve celebrations and a “groom lounge” capturing more of a “guy vibe.”

Within each venue, vendors from all over Whidbey Island will be highlighted, according to Mickunas. Event planners will stage and design each venue to showcase the possibilities; caterers and cake makers will be at each location offering samples; DJs and musicians will provide music; and photographers will share the latest trends.

The tour also features top wedding and event vendors including wedding coordinators, dressmakers, rental suppliers, florists, makeup and hair stylists and more.

“You will quickly understand why Whidbey Island is the perfect location for your next destination event or dream wedding,” according the Weddings on Whidbey website. “This tour will make planning that special occasion effortless.”

Tickets are on sale now for the Weddings on Whidbey and Events Tour; tickets must be purchased prior to the event.

Participants will take a shuttled tour to four South Whidbey event locations noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 8.

The first stop will be Fireseed Catering and Events Garden, where participants will check in.

The tour will continue on to Dancing Fish Farms, Freeland Hall and Roaming Radish Catering and Event Facility.

Participants must be at least 18 years of age.

Cost is $20 per person or $35 for VIP admission.
