Vintage Bridal Gown Fashion Show and High Tea at St. Mary's

The Vancouver branch of the Ukrainian Catholic Women’s League invites you to their Vintage Bridal Gown Fashion Show and High Tea on Sunday September 26, 2010. It takes place at 2:30 pm at St. Mary’s Ukrainian Catholic Centre, 3150 Ash Street in Vancouver.

This unique event will feature bridal gowns going back to the early 20th century and continuing up to today. Young women in the local Ukrainian community will model several vintage gowns.

Other gowns will be on display along with traditional Ukrainian wedding artifacts and photos. As well, there will be a “Guess Who the Bride Is?” contest.

To wrap up the show, Svitanok Chorus will sing pre wedding songs and feature a reenactment by a soloist “bride to be” from their musical Vinkopletennia, a traditional Ukrainian bridal shower.

The High Tea following the fashion show will feature delicious home-made delicacies by the ladies of the parish.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $4 for children under 12. Please book in advance and help the ladies prepare enough food.

Tickets are available from Sophia at 604 568-2034, Nadia at 604 432-7144  or Ann (Kvitka) at 604 925-2581.
