¡Ay, Caramba! San Diego never fails to amaze us – and The Big Fake Wedding San Diego, presented by BRIDES, was no exception. Our vendor team completely blew us away with their brilliant creativity and ability to transform The Moniker Warehouse into a Mexican fiesta at the drop of a hat (er, sombrero). Enjoy some highlights below!
Inspired by the exciting culture of Mexico, our “Paleta de Piña” inspiration board incorporated fresh flavors, bright colors, and fascinating traditions. Think big skirts, perfect for twirling. Hot days by the beach cooled down by fruity paletas (aka popsicles). Woven blankets, piñatas, embroidery, pottery, Dia de los Muertos… the list goes on and on. Our San Diego vendors were encouraged to be vibrant, brave, and fun in this sweet and spicy opportunity to cut loose and celebrate with color.
