AUGUST 19, 2018 | ACE HOTEL | 11AM - 2PM

Welcome to #SwoonNOLA, the first annual modern wedding showcase to hit the bayou with a focus on creative and design-focused entrepreneurs and small businesses! We're teaming up with Ace Hotel New Orleans and 30 vendors to give couples and the party curious a dang good time surrounded by tons of unique wedding inspiration.


With the best the bayou has to offer, we'll feature the following from our sponsors and so much more: complimentary light apps + savory sweets from Chasing Wang and Salt & Light Pastry Co., loungin' with Distressed Rentals and Revival, DIY bloom bar by Kim Starr Wise, calligraphy demos with EBB & FLOW ink, blow out and braid bar from BLEU Blowdry Bar, make up touch ups from Verde Beauty Studio and bridal styles from Wedding Belles. It will all be captured by Bride Film and Peony Wedding Photography while DJ RQAway spins! We'll also have a cash bubbles bar to start your Sunday Funday off right!

Oh, and did we mention some serious swag for the first 50 couples? That's right, along with a slew of giveaways from participating vendors and sponsors, like Kendra Scott, The Knot, New Orleans Weddings Magazine, The Mrs. Box, KREWE, Josephine Estelle, Wedding Favorites and more!

You'll receive a giveaway entry for each 1) ticket you purchase online and 2) for each gently used wedding, bridesmaid or cocktail dress donated to our dress drive.

Sounds like a hoot, right? So avoid those long aisles + massive crowds at the standard bridal shows, and bring your krewe along for a chance to truly connect with vendors and learn how they can make inspiration into the real deal!
