Vendis 2018 – Come Join the Circus!

11th Annual Vendi Awards
 

Can you believe it's that time again?  The Vendis are almost here!  Our members have cast their votes for the nominees and now they are in the process of sending in their final vote on the winners for our 11th Annual Vendi Awards!  This highly-anticipated wedding industry awards event for the Dallas-Fort Worth wedding industry always sells out, so make sure you get your tickets soon!  Curious as to what it'll be like this year?  We are too!  Check out what Lauren Twichell, our 2017 Vendor Relations Chair and 2018 Fundraising Chair, has to share about the amazing event she has planned!

Q: What's the theme this year and what was your inspiration?

A:  The theme this year will be Vintage Circus! I wanted to make sure and let our 10 Year Vendis stand out and shine, so I have gone a total different direction making it more playful and fun!  I definitely wanted to keep the formal aspect while adding in some pizzazz.

Q: So what should we wear?

A:  The attire is Black Tie Creative! It’s formal with a very playful aspect! A little bit of a costume element to it!  (Want more ideas on what to wear?  Click here for a description/ideas.)

Q: What's different this year than previous Vendis?

A: We are partnering with a couple amazing vendors and companies to bring quite a few fun surprises throughout the evening!  Kendra Scott is one of these fantastic partners!

Q: Tell us more about Kendra Scott!

A: Kendra Scott is collaborating with us and offering some amazing grab boxes of jewelry from their new Spring line! We will be selling these boxes for $50 each, but they are valued from $75 to $200 each!

Thanks so much for sharing this info with us Lauren!  Haven't registered yet?  You'd better get your tickets soon as we always sell out!  Register here and don't forget to get your Kendra Scott mystery box!
