The Swoon Event

san diego • austin • dallas

The Swoon Event is a curated, creative wedding show in Austin, Dallas and San Diego. You won't find massive crowds or endless aisles here; just a fresh take on wedding planning with a thoughtful mix of creatives in a welcoming and collaborative setting.

The Swoon Event was created by Amberly Washington of REVELRY, an East Austin creative event studio that crafts a variety of gatherings. With a focus on supporting small businesses, Revelry brings intimacy, community and creativity to everything from large scale events and markets to pop-up dinners and skill-based workshops. 

Each location for The Swoon Event is carefully selected and is near and dear to Amberly's heart. She was drawn to each creative community within these cities because they are incredibly passionate, take great pride in their work and most importantly, cheer each other on.

Located at 2511 East 6th Street, Unit E, the REVELRY studio is perfect for hosting your own gatherings and workshops.

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 brides, grooms, 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 in the following categories - floral, decor, photography, event design/planning, letterpress, catering, food trucks, desserts, live music, DJ, jewelry, clothing, make-up artistry, hairstyling, groom products and services, etc... You catch our drift!

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

Vendors cannot promote products or services of vendors who are not participating in the show. 

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.
