For those of you who are unfamiliar with our Couples Socials, here’s a little bit of information for you:

Not Another Expo…

No more bridal expos, wedding HAPPY HOURS are what we’re about!

The District Bliss Couples Social is a happy hour where you can mix-and-mingle with other engaged couples while getting info to help you plan your wedding.

For those of you unfamiliar with our couples socials, they are a new spin on the “wedding expo“. We work with our Participating Vendors and one Featured Vendor to put on a fun party for engaged couples planning their wedding! The couples get to mingle, share their successful (or unsuccessful) planning stories, kick back with some cocktails and small bites, and learn some new planning tips for their own weddings.

The kicker is: once the venue space is staged and set, all of our Participating Vendors leave to allow for that laid-back, pressure-free environment that District Bliss is all about! There is no awkwardness between the couples and the vendors or a strict layout of booths that couples are required to stop at. Whaaaat?! That’s CRAZY!

All of the Participating Vendors’ items are displayed as they would be at an actual wedding/event, but with their company names so that the couples can easily contact the vendors they would like to work with. The Featured Vendor will be available to answer any questions that couples may have, but is the ONLY vendor present at the Couples Social.

We also promote all of our Participating & Featured Vendors leading up to our event, so you’ll get to learn a TON about each of our amazing vendors! We like give each company as much exposure as possible because we love them (why else would we work with them, after all)!

If you’re a local vendor, head here for more information on our Participating and Featured Vendors. If you want to become a Participating or Featured Vendor, head here! We are still accepting applications in most categories for this specific event and would love to work with you!

This year’s Fall Couples Social will take place at Circle Bistro on October 18, 2015 from 12:00pm – 3:00pm.

Things you can look forward to are: a dressed venue with lots of awesome vendors’ products, a ton of wedding inspiration, one Featured Vendor that will be there to answer any wedding questions you have, one complimentary drink, some delicious bites, customized tote gift bags with lots of goodies from our Participating Vendors and a pamphlet of wedding tips and tricks to help you plan your wedding, and lots of other engaged couples that you can mingle with and share your wedding planning stories with!

The first FIVE couples to sign up will receive an awesome gift which will be revealed at a later date! Wink, wink!
