  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) September 30, 2010 - Organizers of the WeddingChannel Couture Show and the Green Bride Guide today announced the addition of a special Green Bride Pavilion at New York's Premier International Bridal Market, October 16-18, at the InterContinental The Barclay, New York.

    "This is an important event for us and our members," said Kate L. Harrison, the founder of the Green Bride Guide. "This is one of the most influential bridal events in the country, and it really brings this trend to the forefront of the industry."

    Harrison and her team are hosting the pavilion in the InterContinental's Madison Room 1, and will be providing background information on the Green Bride Guide and how other event participants and attendee can "go green."

    "The Green Bride Guide has done a great job demystifying what it means to be 'green' for our industry, and that's why we wanted to invite them this year," said Jane Heflin, the WeddingChannel Couture Show's director. "It's more than just about a trend and what's hot - it's an important challenge that every industry must face, and Kate has shown us that it can be done with style."

    The Green Bride Guide is the comprehensive and credible resource for green wedding product and services. The site's directory connects couples with green wedding service providers in their area, such as restaurants that serve local, organic food and limousine companies that use hybrid vehicles. The directory includes vendors throughout the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.

    "When my husband Barry and I began thinking about and planning our own green wedding, we were surprised by how little information was available to assist us. The book, The Green Bride Guide: How to Plan an Earth-friendly Wedding on Any Budget (Sourcebooks 2008) was the first step in compiling the results from the hundreds of hours I had spent researching green wedding ideas," said Harrison. "When I launched the website in 2009, I was thrilled with the user feedback and response as it quickly became the #1 green wedding website. The Pavilion at the Wedding Channel Couture Show is the next step in the evolution of this idea, as it brings together green wedding vendors and the industry decision makers at a live event."
