The Engaged Collective
August 18, 2019
We are blessed with the greatest brides and vendors! Let me just start with that! We could not be more pleased with how this year’s Collective went. As we walked around talking to our guests, we could not help but be blown away at the brides and grooms (and vendors, of course) that we get to work with. So, THANK YOU to everyone who spent their Sunday afternoon with us.
This Engaged Collective was unlike any other! Haven was set up like a wedding with round tables displaying our vendors (the best in the world!!), a stage with a live band, and a dance floor where we boogied the afternoon away!
We also had a silent auction, giveaways, and a Best of Show Contest. Kendra Scott gave away 100 prizes and we had a drawing for a $500 Diamonds Direct gift certificate! I guess you could say it was the best day ever!!!
As mentioned above, this year we hosted a Best of Show contest amongst our vendors. Each display was worthy of an award, so we got our brides to help us vote on the winner! Brides filled out a ballot, choosing the display that caught their eye the most, and we announced the winner at the end! Bella Couture, one of our Bridal gown shops, took the crown!! Their breathtaking gowns on display won our brides over.
Another surprise this year was that we had a live BAND!! Shoutout to Just a Few Cats for letting us Engaged girls (and brides!!) be your biggest fan!! Alvin and his crew played at the Collective’s intermission, and the party didn’t stop!
The other day, a little birdie (Steph) told Sidney and I about possible dates for next year’s Engaged Collective! Can you believe it?! We’ll keep all of the details a secret for now, but go ahead and mark your calendars for August 2020 at Haven.
