Guys – it’s almost BASH time!
After a few weeks of some heavy Bash planning, we’ve discovered that BASH time to us is basically Christmas 2.0…. a) we get to reunite with a lot people that we’ve missed through the year (seriously – the vendors there are great – they’ll feel like family to you in no time!) and b) there is a lot of décor to be put up. Only instead of hanging stockings and ornaments, we’re hanging paper for backdrops… and instead of drinking hot chocolate, we’re drinking wine… mostly because there is a lot of paper to be hung for the backdrops.
So, we thought we we’d take a quick break from the paper and the wine and give a few quick tips to the Bs (+ Gs!) who are coming to the Bash!
It’s totally cool if you don’t know what you want! The nice thing about a curated show like The Bash is that there will be plenty of inspo for you to look at and ideas to pull from! Don’t be shy to take pictures of what you like so you can remember closer to the day!
2. OPPOSITE of INSPO
It’s also totally cool if you do know what you want! Bring pictures of your vision, have your Pinterest board ready – that way you can figure out which vendor shares that vision!
3. TAKE YOUR TIME
A smaller show means more time to chat. And chatting is so helpful! A lot of the time, vendors are who you spend a decent part of your wedding day with (hair, make up, photographers, planners) – so it’s important to get to know who you vibe with! Don’t be shy to say hi and chat away the night (or day!) – we’re all pretty excited to meet you!
We’ve been lucky enough to work with a number of the vendors at the Bash and below are some of our favourite photos from a recent shoot with Genevieve Renee, Art + Alexander, Pearl & Dot, Pretty Sweet and Gathered Table Supply. See photos for info!
Looking forward to sharing a cocktail with ya’ll on Saturday and a coffee (or two!) on Sunday!
