24. Brides-to-Be the Guests of Honor at Grace Meets Glamour Bridal Show

 With the new wedding engagements that come with each holiday season, a bevy of new brides-to-be are busy lining up locations and vendors for their upcoming “I-Do’s”. Barrington event planner, Christina Currie, knows how overwhelming the process can be so she’s found a way to make it special by keeping it simple. Christina is hosting her 4th annual Grace Meets Glamour Boutique Bridal Affair at Biltmore Country Club coming up on Sunday, February 23rd, where brides can meet a select group of the area’s finest wedding vendors in an elegant setting, all under one roof.
With Grace Meets Glamour, Christina works hard to create a fantastic opportunity to connect brides with vendors while being treated to an afternoon where they get to truly shine. Champagne and hors d’ouevres will be served during the event to celebrate the brides in attendance. There will be a fashion show, live music, wedding cakes, floral and decor ideas, swag bags for brides and special touches throughout, but Christina Currie says the magic begins at the entrance.
“When they arrive at Biltmore there’s valet parking and ice sculptures at the entrance. Each bride gets a pearl necklace when they come so we know who is the bride. Most of my clients prefer a more customized and personalized approach so the show is very laid back.”
Christina also says she purposefully limits the number attendees to 75 brides and their guests……

Hi! 😁 Today's Word of the Day is 汉语 hàn yǔ -- literally "Han Language."

So, we're backtracking... or maybe just following the path of yesterday's post 😂. Either way, it might behoove you to know the context of this word.

The 汉 hàn in 汉语 refers to the Han ethnic group -- the largest of the 56 (government-proclaimed) Chinese ethnic groups. Some data have indicated that Han people comprise 90% or more of the population. So, it's unsurprising that this large group has gotten to name one of the most common terms for Mandarin. (Remember, Mandarin is what we learn at BHS and is the official language of China. There are other dialects/languages in existence.)

Anyhoo, the point is that if one is going to be referring to Mandarn Chinese as a language, it wouldn't hurt to know how to say it two ways! 🙃

普通话 and 汉语 can be used in most of the same contexts -- 汉语 might be a little less eloquent, but you won't get in trouble for using either. 🙂
