Today I am so excited to introduce you to a modern wedding event unlike any other – The Swoon Event. The Swoon Event is New Orleans’ first wedding showcase featuring modern wedding inspiration. Twenty creatives and design-focused businesses are going to have their creativity on full display for brides and grooms at the Ace Hotel on August 19th. The Swoon Event sets itself apart from standard bridal shows as it aims to provide the most cutting edge and unique wedding inspiration to couples. At The Swoon Event you can avoid the massive crowds and long lines of a traditional bridal show and instead mingle with wedding professionals showcasing their talents in a relaxed environment. As you gather insta-worthy inspiration for your wedding, make sure to enjoy all the vendor delights along the way. Ace Hotel is providing tasty bites, while Chasing Wang and Salt + Light Pastry Studio are bringing the sweets. Get a blow out by Bleu Blow Dry Bar or make-up touch ups by Verde Beauty Studio. Wedding Bellas is showcasing their newest bridal collection, Ebb & Flow Ink will be showing off their calligraphy skills, and Kim Starr Wise is designing the event florals. There’s also a cash bubbles bar to start your Sunday Funday off right! I personally was sold after seeing that champagne truck but if you need more convincing know that you can expect a slew of giveaways at the event. The first 50 couples receive a pretty sweet swag bag. We hear Kendra Scott’s giving free baubles from their color bar and the Mrs. Box has a special offer on their heirloom ring boxes. Participating vendors and sponsors will also be providing a slew of raffle prizes, including Krewe sunglasses, beauty services, photography sessions, wedding planning workshops, and so much more! You can receive additional raffle tickets for buying your ticket online or by donating a gently used wedding, bridesmaids or cocktail dresses to their dress drive. Make sure to grab your ticket here! And if you’re not close to New Orleans don’t fret, The Swoon Event is hosting three other shows in Austin, Dallas, and San Diego in early 2019.
