WHAT: Valentine's Day isn't the only notable celebration happening this month: Plan a date night with your honey to check out the Luxe Bridal Event, an evening of wedding planning and revelry for style-savvy couples on February 19.

More cocktail party than wedding show, this year's contemporary venue creates a lounge-like atmosphere for the evening's festivities, including a designer gown parade by Charlotte's Weddings & More, bubbly and a cash bar by My Bartender, a sweetheart table showcase, and the opportunity to mingle with an elite and creative collection of Northwest wedding professionals.
