Omaha Fashion Week kicks off its Fall 2019 runway shows with The Aisle, a red-carpet bridal showcase hosted by Wedding Essentials magazine.

"We're partnering with Wedding Essentials to make our luxury bridal showcase even better," says OFW producer Brook Hudson.

The Aisle, a remake of OFW's Omaha Wedding Salon, is all about fashion and elegance. Decadence, too, in a brand-new boutique bridal experience designed to inspire and entertain from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. Aug. 18 at the Omaha Design Center

Admission to The Aisle includes valet parking, champagne and hors d'oeuvres, live music, a wedding vendor marketplace and a professionally produced runway show highlighting labels exclusive to area bridal stores and boutiques, plus original gowns by OFW designers Only by Faith, Hannah Caroline Couture, Denise Ervin Design and others.  

"Engaged couples and wedding pros alike repeatedly have asked for something like this," says Lauren Miller, advertising manager for Wedding Essentials. "We wanted to partner with a key producer in the Omaha market, and that happened to be OFW." Omaha Fashion Week is the Midwest's largest fashion event with shows each spring and fall.

The Aisle provides an intimate atmosphere to connect with local wedding pros and learn about their products and services, as well as pinpoint favorite wedding day looks on the fashion runway.

Tickets to The Aisle are $45, $35, $25 and $15. The VIP-level tickets (there are two) come with added perks, including a swag bag with more than $100 in products and services and prime seating for the fashion show (which is where you'll want to be to catch every nuance of your favorite looks).

Buy tickets at any level between July 19 and July 26 and receive 20% off with the promo code BRIDE20 at checkout.
