  1. I’ve been to soooooo many bridal shows over the years, most of them in the past 2 months, and they are all the same. The same vendors, the same raffles, the same set up. This bridal bash looks completely different and I’d love to see what “top notch” vendors are out there that I can book for my wedding, for what I still have nothing booked.

  2. As a professional wedding photographer I have to agree with Rebecca 100%. This wedding show looks fresh and new. I would love to attend this.

  3. I have been to many bridal shows and as soon as I heard of Love tour I fell in love it looks like so much fun! Please pick me so my fiancé and I can have a sweet time!

  4. This looks like fun! Carly and I have actually never been to a bridal show and this like a fun opportunity to introduce ourselves to that world. Would love the chance to go this year.

  5. My fiancé and I just got engaged 3 weeks ago. We actually met in Manhattan Beach…so this would be the perfect event to kick off to all the planning!! :)

  6. This looks like such a unique and fun show! Just a shame I’m so far away… Next time!!! ;)

  7. Christine Portillo on:

    This event looks lovely. I’m a bride with a fall 2013 wedding and I need all the inspiration I can get :) I love your blog and check it daily <3 I hope you pick me!

  8. I would love to attend because it looks like a unique event for different and out of the box brides like myself. I’ve been visiting many bridal expos and this one seems like the perfect fit for me. It would be such an amazing experience to go.

  9. This event looks magical! It makes me feel great about leaving my long term career and starting over doing floral design for weddings! Its wonderful to know that vendors are out there supporting each other as well as to show brides there are different designs and creators to partner with on your wedding other than just the trending, same vendors you see on all the wedding blogs. I’m definitely going to this event!

  10. The Love Tour looks absolutely beautiful! With just the pictures, I can see so many ideas and creations that I love dearly, and I can only imagine how much more lovelies are waiting to be unveiled. I can sense there is so much creative energy at this event that I want to go and experience and be absolutely inspired for the future!

  11. It would be an incredibly humbling experience if you choose us, bc we have yet to attend any bridal shows! Green Wedding Shoes has been ourgo-to- inspiration-website for months now! Please pick us, pretty please? We promise to wear OUR green wedding shoes that day :)

  12. Our date is set, the deposit on our dreamy outdoor venue, we just need to figure out the details and get in touch with local vendors who can do that — and this this is completely our style!
    My groom and I had gone to a couple bridal shows in the area to do this it left us running because many of the vendors were so impersonal and gimmicky. we’d love to go. [plus it’s my day off!]
