We adore our Love List vendors and, with wedding season swiftly approaching, we know that their schedules will be filled with client meetings, site visits and, of course, celebrations so we wanted to give them an evening of networking hilarity with a side of creativity and competition.
Your favorite wedding vendors were placed into three teams to compete for bronze, silver and gold of the first Love List Olympics held at Nuage Design‘s studio in New York City. From a Champagne-and-cupcake relay race to a bouquet toss, best dressed contest, Instagram Scavenger Hunt and the ultimate Table Design Challenge, the wedathletes battled it out in wedding-themed games for top honors and bragging rights.
We displayed the snacks in an Olympic-themed tabletop using boxes wrapped in gold, silver and bronze metallic wrapping paper. Our team created the Olympic ring wall display by painting Styrofoam wreaths in Love Inc. colors (acrylic craft paint works best) and sticking them to the wall with adhesive putty (doesn't damage walls and easy to remove!). The signage was leftover from our launch event, made by the amazing design shop Liddabits and because marriage equality is important to us, we had a donation station set up for those who wanted to give a little somethin' somethin' to Freedom to Marry. Sugar Flower Cake Shop provided mouthwatering mini cupcakes while Karma Flowers designed beautiful bouquets and centerpieces used for the challenges.
Of course to keep these competitive athletes in check, we enlisted our friends from Nuage Designs, Sarah and Zaira, as well as our two favorite bloggers — Stacy of How He Asked and Jessica of Budget Savvy Bride — to referee. Now it's time to introduce you to the teams …
Shuffling in with bling, grills and 40s, Team Hustlers set the intimidation bar to high the moment they swaggered through the door … and they definitely backed up the badass attitude throughout the competition.
