From Be Inspired PR:
Every year during Bridal Fashion Week, we bring our big networking party, Tassels and Tastemakers, to the big apple! This exclusive event brings the movers and shakers of the event industry altogether for a fun night of networking, cocktails and picture-perfect moments!
This year, we decided to bring an exciting addition to the event! We had top brands in the wedding and lifestyle space give a first-look of their new collections and products to editors, influencers, and top industry pros! Be sure to check out the photos of all of the booths including Bed Bath & Beyond's wedding + home registry and 'Bachelor' Alum Desiree Hartsock's new bridal line!
We absolutely love this chic modern space!
Bed Bath & Beyond set up a BEAUTIFUL booth showcasing some of their amazing registry items.
Bare and Me did not disappoint by showcasing their stunning handmade pieces.
Thirsty Nest showed off some of the items wine lovers can register for on their site!
This event would not be possible without the brilliant design direction of Gianna SanFilippo of Chic Celebrations. She warmed up this chic white space with beautiful blues, greens and natural texture. Even though every booth added their own personal design flair, Gianna managed to keep the space looking cohesive and modern!
The event space at 404 is a clean, fresh and vibrant space. White walls and glass panels make it a blank canvas for design (praise hands!!!). This year's Tassels featured a Bridal Market Showcase for media, bloggers and editors followed by a cocktail party for industry influencers and pros. What a turnout! Alicia King Photography was there to capture all of the fun!
We wanted to warm the space up with wood and iron tables and bars from Party Rental Ltd. and wild and whimsy green arrangements of different shapes and sizes by none other than Mixed Greens Event Design. Each vendor had a warm welcoming space and was on display throughout both back-to-back events.
Eliza Gwendalyn was there doing live digital sketches of the guests. It was so fun to watch and such a cool digital takeaway for everyone there. Murrays Cheese kept everyone full with an amazing spread of meats, cheeses, charcuterie, and seasonal sweets like fruit tartlets and apple crumble bars. The parmesan puffs were by far the biggest hit and went perfectly with the OneHope Chardonnay and Champagne that was poured all night! Thanks to For Your Party, our bar was complete with adorable custom cocktail napkins and stir sticks.
Three words - Boozey Ice Cream! Tipsy Scoop was there serving a variety of spiked ice creams and sorbets. Music from Jarrell Entertainment kept the mood lively and upbeat, and who doesn’t love some good photobooth
We had such a great turnout! Saw some familiar faces and made some new friends. Looking forward to next year!
Azazie showed off their bridal and bridesmaids collections, while guests could chat with the designer!
The Handkerchief Shop brought some of their pretty handkerchiefs that make for the perfect gift!
Partyslate was definitely the life of the party!
Silk flowers?! Need we say more about the Something Borrowed Blooms booth!
Desiree Hartsock showed off her brand new line of bridal gowns and we couldn't be more obsessed!
These keepsake boxes from Savor are perfect for future brides & newlyweds!
For Your Party does it again with all of their fun party goods! They literally have everything you need!
