At The Event Essentials we firmly believe that your happiness is our happiness and we absolutely enjoy what we do and what we offer. Our numbers and sales are not our main priority. Serving our customers and giving back to the community is at the top of our list and we value that we are truly fortunate to be surrounded with the gift of love, life and creativity.

In order to make this world a better place and help us remember how truly blessed we are, the Event Essentials has created a team called “BRIDES MAKING STRIDES“.


YES, we are calling all past, present, and future brides and bridesmaids (and family and friends) to bring your dress back to life! Slip on those gorgeous gowns, strap on your sneakers and join team BRIDES MAKING STRIDES for a noncompetitive walk supporting the American Cancer Society’s unique mission to fight breast cancer on four fronts: research, education, advocacy, and service programs.

Walk for your Mother and Grandmother! Walk for your Sister and Best Friend!


Rio Salado Parkway in Tempe, Arizona
Team photos and artistic photography session: 6:30 a.m.
Registration: 7:00 a.m.
Walk Begins: 8:00 a.m.
(More details to come in September)

The fight against cancer is complex and waged in may ways: through research, prevention, detection, and services to patients and families. By giving to the American Cancer Society, you’ll be taking an active role to increase the number of lives saved from cancer and the number of people who remain cancer free for life.

From all of us at the Event Essentials, we firmly believe that friends and family are the Main Essential for any event and hope this gift will assist to those in need. Please check out our website if you are interested in participating or donating.

With love and dedication to:

Leonard A. Pinkerton (2/22/22 – 10/19/96)
Verle L. Pinkerton (breast cancer survivor)
Brenda M. Pinkerton (breast cancer survivor)
Tracy McDowell (6/14/60 – 01/06/06)

Target: Brides and Bridesmaid Gowns

Ok, so I may be one of the last people to post on this, but have you seen the bridal selection at Target lately? The wedding dresses are really very “vanilla” (plain and simple), but they are kind of cute actually!! They scream “I’m a blank slate” just waiting for some rhinestones or a vibrant colored sash and brooch to be attached. It’s easy to be clever and crafty with these gowns because the prices are super affordable. You have to check them out if you are a crafty bride-to-be, a destination beach bride, or even a bride on a budget. Sooo cute!!

…. and they even have a bridesmaid selection (or great dinner party dresses). Simple, but you can’t beat the prices!

Ok, I’m so very guilty of getting excited about this game at bridal showers. It’s a funny way to break the ice and get your guests introduced to one another. However at Cheap Chic Weddings, they took it a step further and actually had a contest. Some of these dresses are AMAZING pieces of creative talent. Way to step outside of the box, or should we say bathroom.
