Couples in the Charlotte, North Carolina area were treated to a fun night of food, drink, shopping, and helpful wedding talk this week at our WeddingWire Social! Attendees perused Stella & Dot jewelry and accessories, swapped tips with other couples planning weddings in the area, and got an exclusive sneak peek at the 50 Fresh Ideas story featured in WeddingWire’s just-released WinterBook. They were also able to have their planning questions answered by WeddingWire editor Sarah Zlotnick and Charlotte event planner Heather Bryson of Carolina Event Design.  Scroll down for pictures from the event.
