We are accepting applications for
San Diego on February 21, 2020.
This is a team-based collaborative event and spaces are limited. Please be aware that due to the nature of this style of event that not all applicants will be accepted. Thanks for understanding.
We Work in Teams
Types of vendors
Selected vendors will be put into teams and we will ask for your team to collaborate on overall Palette, Style/Vibe and submit a Mood board describing the design space you wish to create. In an effort to keep everything unique and fresh we are planning out design ahead of time so that we don’t have overlap or teams that are too similar. Most designs will be either Lounges or Tablescapes. If you have an alternative idea in mind please feel free to share it and we will see if it can be incorporated in.
Once everything is submitted and approved you will then go through the selection process of choosing your rentals. There will be a flat fee for rentals and you will work directly with the rental companies.
The palette is provided for you and your team to interpret. We want you to use it as a foundation for your design. Please keep it at the front of your mind when designing as we are looking for the palette to be featured and brought to life.
Please get creative and use whatever inspiration you’d like to convey your ideas. A brief explanation or walk through your thoughts will need to accompany your board as well.
Design spaces will all be the same size and vary by venue. You might have a wall behind you or you might not. If you need electricity or plan to suspend something from the ceiling please note that on your application.
All spaces will need to designed with rentals, decor and possibly florals. You’re welcome to bring in your own items or reach out to collaborate with one of our participating vendors. Each set up will be roughly 10×10′ and we will need to have your layout/design approved prior to the event.
Hair/Makeup: We’d like to create an interactive experience for all of our guests. Rather than flip through photos of your work we are hoping to have you come up with a quick live demo you can try on Bride’s. Successful demos that we have done in the past would are: The Quick Lip, Lash Bar, and Braid Bar, to name a few. These interactions need to have quick turnarounds, meaning less than 5 minutes in the event that there is a rush and a line forms. *For small set ups we will pair you up with another artist.
Catering/Desserts: What are you “known for” and why? We are hoping to set up inviting displays featuring your tasty treats for our guests to try. We are looking for killer styled set ups and outgoing personalities to accompany them! Ideas that have worked in the past: Tapas rotating out on the half, grazing stations, self serve stations, carving stations, etc. *Let us know if you’re wanting to collaborate on a design team as well as have a display to offer your treats! There won’t be an additional fee to do both just make sure we know you’re interested.
DJ/Live Music: We want to know a little bit about you and how your style sets you apart from everyone else. Please plan to share how you’d like to run the show during the event and any ideas you might have.
