Hey there, wedding pro!  Is Swoon for you?

This show is for the creatives and businesses whose target market is design-focused, has an eye for the details and is community oriented.  If you're down for providing a personal touch to every soirée, then yes, this is most definitely for you!

This is a curated, fun-filled wedding show for couples, wedding professionals and the party curious who love putting in the hard work to create magic.  We are open to anyone offering a fresh take on the standard bridal show in the following categories - floral, decor, photography, event design/planning, letterpress, catering, desserts, DJ + live music, fashion + accessories, hair + make up, groom products + services, etc... You catch our drift!

This is a live advertisement for your brand.   This is your chance to show these lovebirds what you’ve got in an interactive and pressure-free environment.  Since this is not a cattle call filled with endless aisles, you'll get quality time to mingle with guests and communicate why you do what you do.

Vendors are fully responsible for the entire display, including but not limited to tables, chairs, decor, walls, ec.

We will respect your time, and we ask that you do the same for us. If you do not have intentions on participating, please do not fill out the application. Please also check your schedule before submitting the application.

Please keep in mind that this show is affordable compared to other wedding shows for a few reasons. It gives up-and-coming creatives and small businesses and those with smaller budgets a chance to gain exposure. It also gives vendors the capacity to be as creative as possible with their booths. This is a community and we are hear to support each other. Therefore, it takes all of us working together. We rely on local wedding publication sponsorships, general and online local coverage and social media to get the word out. Therefore, vendors are required to promote the event on social media and their brick and mortars (if available). If you are not able to do so, we ask that you do not apply. 

Please note that because of event obligations, refunds after acceptance into the event will not be granted, unless the event is cancelled. If you are not able to attend, you can apply the balance to a future event.

If you have any questions, please feel to reach out at hello@theswoonevent.com. Thanks so much for your interest! 

**Dallas and Denver applicants will not hear back from us until we have announced a date.  For those applicants, this application will serve as a waitlist, so that we know you're interested.
