The Cream Event LA + a Ticket Giveaway!

the cream event los angeles I’m super excited to announce that Green Wedding Shoes will be a part of THE CREAM in LA (formerly Hitched Event)! We had a blast at the first LA event and are super excited to be joining all the fun again this time around. This year’s event is going to be held at The Book Bindery in Culver City, CA on March 1, 2012 from 6-10pm. What is THE CREAM you ask? Well, it is organized by the super creative duo of Paige + Kelly of Bash, Please and it is not your typical wedding event. They curate the list of vendors to bring in the best, most creative wedding industry professionals and invite them to share their talents in an event that is more like a fun party, then traditional wedding event. The majority of the list of vendors is still a secret (they will be revealing the rest of the crop each day on their Twitter feed), but let me tell you, I saw the list and you won’t want to miss this event! Some of the crop have been revealed and include GWS faves such as: Twigs & Honey, Enjoy Events Co., Braedon Flynn,, La Partie Events, Aaron Shintaku, Superfine Bakery, Casa De Perrin, The Flashdance and so many more to come! neon love Oh, and did I mention that this year’s event will have a theme that all the crop will be inspired by – neon! Love it! We are currently brainstorming up some super fun ideas, DIYs and inspiration based off this rad board! Can’t wait to share our table + see what everyone else creates! We also have a pair of tickets to give away, so you can attend with your honey, bestie, mom/sister or whomever you’d like! I’m totally looking forward to meeting lots of you – that was one of my favorite parts of the first event! So, please say hi if you attend! Would love to meet all you lovelies. :) To enter the giveaway, leave a comment with why you’d love to attend and I’ll pick a winner at random. Giveaway ends Sunday, February 12th at 10 pm PST. You can purchase tickest to the event HERE.

  1. I got engaged last month…on my birthday! It was the best birthday present ever. I’ve never been to any bridal event as a bride…though I did help organize one before. I can imagine it must be really fun and inspiring.

  2. I just want to be a sponge and soak it all up and learn as much as I can about styling from the best! This would be an absolute honor!

  3. Hello! I just got engaged on Christmas and am starting to plan my wedding. I am the first one of my friends to get married so I really don’t have a lot of resources or advice from those around me. I would really appreciate the opportunity to learn and explore the world of weddings through you and this event- for I know you would not leave me astray! I would bring my little sis who is my ninja maid of honor (seriously, she’s so dedicated) or my fiancé who said he would love to go with me (isn’t that so sweet)! And of course, I would be so tickled to meet you as well!!

  4. Hello fabulous Green Wedding Shoes! I would be thrilled to win the tickets to such a wonderful event!!! My sister and I are aspiring event designers, and ironically I have been working on NEON inspiration boards, when I stumbled upon this nifty giveaway. If I don’t win, I’ll see what the hubs says about buying tickets, becuase this event looks amazing! Best to you!

  5. After getting engaged last October and spending 4 1/2 months of searching high & low for a wedding venue and dates – from California to New Hampshire – my fiance, Ricardo, and I finally signed, sealed and delivered the contract to our LA venue yesterday. We officially know our anniversary date – YAY! Now I only have six months to plan the rest – Yikes! The check-list addict in me would love to have a several birds-one stone kind of event to help me pull a Green Wedding Shoes-worty vision (the fun part!!) all together. Plus my darling fiance said he’s even excited to go – point for me! :) Thanks for considering us – and Happy Friday!

  6. Jen! I can’t wait to meet you!!

  7. As a new wedding planner, getting to attend this event would be absolutely amazing! I would love the opportunity to check out some of my favorite vendors all in one location!

  11. I’m getting married in May and there a few things missing. This event would help me locate a few good vendors :)

  12. Ok, first of all – I am obsessed with weddings and I am in two this Fall (ah, dream come true). I just got married myself last year and practically lived on your blog.

    I REALLY want to take my LA based friend as a present with her two other Bridesmaids. I think that a rockin Bridal Event is a right of passage for any Bride.

    Any I mean, NEON – this I HAVE to see.

    Finger and toes crossed.

    XO, Amy
