Tis’ the season to get engaged! We are in the thick of engagement season (hello, snowy proposals) and you know how it goes: first comes love, then comes a proposal, then comes wedding planning! With all of the highs of being newly engaged, jumping into the wedding planning process can be overwhelming at best and daunting at worst. An excellent first step in the planning process is attending a bridal showcase. Why? Before you start Pinteresting or even budgeting, it’s great to go and see florals, dresses, tablescapes and installations in real life to find what you really love – from colors to place settings – and focus your energy there. We know, the words ‘bridal showcase’ may conjure images of puffy white dresses and doilies but we assure you, this one is a treat.
Started by mega-creative and close friend, Jill Fausner (you may know her as Layered Vintage), Modern Love Event is a unique bridal showcase built exclusively for the city it’s in. Modern Love launched in January of this year with its first event in San Diego followed by Nashville. What’s special about this collection of creatives is that they are gathered based off research about the unique wedding market of that city. We caught up with Jill about the Nashville event at The Cordelle and got the inside scoop on the second San Diego event coming soon.
