  1. I am having a DIY wedding next May and am looking for any and all opportunities to draw inspiration. My bridal party is assisting me with all of the DIY tasks and this would be a great way for us to bond creativly and share ideas for my theme.

    Thank you!

  2. I wanna go!

  3. I would love to go and get inspired for my July DIY wedding!

  4. Holy schnikes! I’ve been dying to check out the Culy Warehouse! Plus it would be double awesome, because my maid of honor just got engaged too and I know she can use some serious inspiration also. On top of all that, I really want to start doing wedding stuff with my Mom and revel in this crazy special time. A trip down to S.D. would be awesome!!!

  5. I’d love to go! I just got engaged, and I’m totally lost when it comes to wedding planning, so would love to check this event out!

  6. This sounds like a perfect event to kick-off my wedding planning! Not to mention a great way to become more familiar with new San Diego vendors, and set the stage for time-efficient wedding planning as I’ll be tying the knot this fall!

  7. I would love to see what ideas and decorations that are going to be displayed. My friends are all getting engaged soon as I might as well….coming up on my 5 year anniversary. I have such a tiny budget that going to this event will surely spark the creativity that will make the day perfect!

  8. I would love to go with my bridal party! We are crafters and have a book of ideas that has some empty pages in the back that need to be filled ;).

    It’s so cute, my fiance said out of the blue the other night:
    “we should start crafting for the weddings on Saturday nights”
    I almost fell over in shock. You would too if you saw him.

    I’m so excited to make DIY projects with my besties, my main guy, and our family members.

    choose me! choose me! choose me! choose me!

  9. My friend and I are DIY brides with weddings one week apart from each other’s this coming August. We’ve been talking about going to a bridal event for some time now, and this is the perfect opportunity! PICK ME! :)

  10. omg omg omg. This would be perfect for my upcoming wedding!! I’m up to my eyeballs in planning so the timing couldn’t be more perfect-o!

  11. the reason is simple…such a spectacular bridal fair brings up yet another great opportunity to share & have fun with the girls that i love most. not only can i draw more inspiration from attending, but we can also create new & fun memories…which of course, leads to a more meaningful & creative wedding.

    pick us pretty please…with a cherry on top.

  12. I’ve been following your blog religiously for great ideas for my wedding. now I’d like to see some things I can actually touch and experience!

  13. I just got an engaged! My fiance and I are trying to plan the wedding for this October so that my sick grandfather will be around to see his first grandchild get married. Since we just started planning it will be a perfect opportunity to attend this and be inspired. My girls would also love to use this as a weekend girls only getaway. Pick me pick me!

  14. There are so many reasons why I want/need to go to this event. I was all set to go with the girls to Hitched in Palm Springs and when I went to purchase the tickets they were SOLD OUT! This is a perfect opportunity for me to find inspirations and ideas for my rustic, yet elegant, wedding that will take place on October 8th. I have SO many great ideas but need to find a creative way to bring them all together. I also think this event will be a great way to connect with my sisters since we all live in different places. Two of them are married and the other is still searching for Mr. Right… I would love to share my ideas with them and meet with vendors that I’ve fallen in love with through blogs such as Green Wedding Shoes.
    My venue in Strawberry Farms in Irvine and I would LOVE to be picked for this WONDERFUL event. Thank you for considering =]

  15. Would love to go to this event xo!

  16. I’m not a bride-to-be… BUT! I’m an aspiring wedding planner. I would love to learn the newest trend of modern, non-traditional weddings. AND! My best friend is trying to get into the “favor” business. So it’ll be the perfect learning opportunities for us!!!

  17. My younger sister and I are both planning DIY weddings for next year! My sister’s will be in February and mine is in April. We are both each others maids of honor so we have a lot planning to do and would love to get some inspiration at an event like this!

  18. San Diego… Decked out WHAREHOUSE… 40 UNIQUE vendors… Vintage to modern… Sounds just right;) Count me in!!!

  23. I would love to win this package for me and my future sister in law. We are both getting married next year and are starting to plan our special days. It would be amazing if I won this package and could take her and two of out amazing friends so we could have a spectacular time.

  24. If I won, I would take my soon-to-be-mother because my family is 2000 miles away! She deserves to share in the excitement of her son getting married as much as any of my friends, so without hesitation, I would take her. : ) As someone who truly is a DIY, green bride by way of life (not way of trend), I would love to find more ways to save money and keep the vintage theme of my wedding. Happy picking!

  25. pick me, im the only guy on the list :)

  37. This would be such a fun experience with my bridesmaids! Keeping my fingers crossed to win.

  38. I have been trying my best to create my dream DIY wedding while finishing school. My wedding is next October and I am still searching for decorating ideas. I have tried to put our own personal touch on everything but it is quite the daunting task. It would be absolutely wonderful to see all of the different ways I can make the wedding more “us”. My bridesmaids have been fantastic in this entire process and we are all just about to graduate from college so it would be a great trip to celebrate our success and the exciting endeavors that are yet to come!

  39. I would love to go to this event with my friends! It would be fantastic inspiration for planning my wedding this fall and a fun “girls weekend” event to share!

  40. Wow..what a great opportunity!! Even though I live in Vancouver but planning a San Diego (where I’m originally from) wedding, my bridal party would love to go! I’m flying in 3 days later or I would totally attend. Our wedding is Nov. 12th at the Condor’s Nest Ranch in Pala, Ca and it has such a rustic, vintage and modern feel..just like the wedding fair!! My bridal party would love to attend for me and share all the great and creative ideas that they will experience at the fair! :)

  41. I have a friend who is in the middle of planning her wedding and I would love to surprise her with this amazing gift!
