No, not really—I didn’t get married. But I did get hitched. Really.
See, last Sunday The (uber-amazing) Ace Hotel Palm Springs hosted the (amazingly inspiring) Hitched Event, and yours truly was in attendance.
First, let’s chat about the Ace…
In a word: rad. The decor and design, the super-friendly staff, the sunny location, the pool that’s open until the wee hours of the night and the $4 PBR tall boys (served poolside, no less), all make this hotel a top destination in my book. I would go back in a heartbeat. And I plan to. Very, very soon. Though not soon enough.
Second, a word about Hitched…
This sign says it all. A wedding showcase for brides and grooms (though many vendors, such as myself, wanted to get in on the action), Hitched is hands-down one of the coolest, smartest concepts to hit the wedding industry. The night was pure fun.
Highlights included a white ban.do caddy, mini cans of Sofia complete with pink straws, brown-bagged PBR (what groom wouldn’t die over this idea for his wedding?), a grilled cheese bar, truffle popcorn + cotton candy, a groom’s lounge featuring a barber shop + bow tying lessons + arcade games, a fashion show, The Flashdance, inventive tablescapes, false eyelashes, and a dance off. Oh, and synchronized swimmers. For realz.
Suffice to say, if I were getting married, following Hitched my head would be full of awesome ideas and inspiration, and I would be beyond excited to start planning said wedding. (And I would totes get hitched at the Ace Palm Springs, btw—such a cool venue!)
Another Hitched event is in the works, and rumor has it the shindig will take place in San Francisco next time around. Brides-to-be take note!
