Sometimes you have to try new things. Last year visiting Engaged with my fiancé was one of those things. We were a bit sceptic, because wedding fairs/events can be a bit dull and not really original. But we had to change our minds because of Engaged. It is the coolest wedding event in the Netherlands, with a lot of creative and stylish vendors that understand the beauty of a bohemian/vintage/outdoor wedding. We spoke to a lot of talented people last year and got some interesting contacts out of it. It was a great day, nothing to be sceptic about!
This year, my colleague/videographer Jamy (Life from the Inside) tried something new: Enter as a vendor for Engaged 2014! He asked me to design&style his stand and we ended up in a cool co-op stand together. We promoted each other with flyers, stories and of course with our wedding video.. which played on loop all day, so I saw it about 50 times ;) Jamy and I made a great team, I am really happy he asked my help and love how 'our' stand looked! The theme for Engaged was 'winter wonderland', but without the polarbears and fake snow ;) The theme worked out great! There were string lights, wooden blocks and rustic settings all over the event.
My concept for Jamy's stand was to really bring out a vintage, bohemian style, with a masculine touch. No pink or pastel for us, but a warm, forest cabin feel with plaid blankets, wooden furniture and glowing gold accents. It was the perfect match between both of our styles and the theme for the event. It was our little living room, so everyone could sit and watch Jamy's work feeling comfortable and welcome! We had so much fun all day with our 'neighbors': Eva from La Nou Nou and Jasper from SayKaas! Then again, all the vendors were super sweet and talented and it was really nice to meet the people behind the hashtags! ;) I am proud of our stand, all the accessoires fitted right in and the chalkboard turned out really cool! And most important, Jamy was very excited about what I did :) If you are interested in a custom made design for a stand or interior, feel free to contact me!
We can look back at an amazing Engaged weekend! We had fun setting everything up the day before, talked to a lot of interesting people, made some couples very happy with our ideas and thoughts about their plans and went home feeling satisfied (and tired!).
It was a great day, thanks to Judith&Boaz for organising it all and taking care of all the vendors. We'll see you next year! :)
And above all, thank you to all the visitors!! You were the best!
