Three times a year they work to produce The Wedding Fair for Twin City Bridal Association. This one-of-a-kind event features exhibits and themed areas designed to inspire ideas for your wedding. The Wedding Guys also design and host three one-of-a-kind events. The “Love Is A Cure Breast Cancer Benefit,” held in February, features a silent auction of wedding items donated by industry experts. “The Engagement Party,” held in November, focuses on engaged couples and features a talk show format on the hottest and most requested topics. Twin City Bridal Association’s yearly “Trend Wedding” has become The Wedding Guys’ signature international award-winning event and the most celebrated wedding giveaway in the country. One lucky couple will win a wedding designed especially by The Wedding Guys; a dream wedding featured in the local and national media. Trend Wedding has been featured in Inside Weddings, a national bridal magazine, and awarded the international ISES Esprit Award for “Best Wedding.”
The Wedding Guys are passionate about the wedding industry and the joy a wedding celebration brings. This same passion drives Trettel and Vassar to devote their personal time to charity. From meeting one-on-one with couples over dinner, to answering questions or giving creative insight, to actually planning an entire wedding, their donations have raised thousands of dollars for local charities. Last year they were featured on Discovery Channel’s ‘Miracle Weddings’ for the wedding they donated to Mercedes Gorden, a 35W bridge survivor, and her fiancé, Jake Rudh.
