Downtown Evanston is planning a Wedding Walk event for brides-to-be and their guests on Sunday, Feb. 24.

Downtown Evanston Executive Director Carolyn Dellutri says the event, from noon to 4 p.m., will demonstrate “how every element of the perfect wedding — from the dress to the flowers and reception — is available right here.”

Update 10 a.m. 2/15/12:

The wedding walk event now includes a chance to win a handmade gown from Avail & Company valued up to $3,000 or a private party at 27 Live, a crystal and freshwater pearls necklace from Eve J. Alfille Gallery & Studio, or a one night stay including breakfast and parking at the Hilton Orrington/Evanston Hotel 

Welcome bags will be available at two registration check-in locations — the Hilton Garden and Hilton Orrington hotels.

From there, Dellutri says, participants can tour ten downtown businesses that offer products and services for weddings, from reception and rehersal dinner venues to jewelers, florists and travel agents.

A fashion show at 27 Live, 1012 Church St., she says, will showcase all of the latest trends in bride and bridesmaid dresses and offer with champagne, hors d’oeuvres and a grand prize giveaway.

Registration online is $25 for a bride and two guests in advance, $5.00 for each additional guest. At the door the charge will be  $30 per bride and two guests at door and $10 for each additional guest.
