ABOUT THE EVENT

Georgetown Main Street is happy to announce I Do: A Georgetown Wedding Event on Saturday, March 28.

Charming Georgetown has long been a destination for couples planning their wedding. Not only are the brick streets the perfect backdrop for engagement photos, the neighborhood also has stunning venues and the largest concentration of businesses in the wedding industry. Because it is unparalleled, Georgetown I Do will attract hundreds of visitors to Georgetown.

 

I Do will include an interactive wedding expo, an expert panel, wedding activations, and an afternoon of shopping and celebrating at the local businesses related to the wedding industry. Additionally, this year we are introducing an exclusive I Do Passport that will include special promotions from venues, retailers, restaurants to guide attendees throughout the afternoon.

In our third year, Georgetown Main Street is eager to share our amazing event partners, Evoke Design & Creative for the day-of coordination and official Coordinator Partner, the Ritz-Carlton Georgetown as the official Venue Partner, and BYT as the official Media Partner.
