If you’ve wondered about the hashtag # 130Weddings floating around lately, we scratched our heads over it too. But all was revealed recently at a special # 130Weddings launch party at Vancouver rental and event company Loungeworks.
Loungeworks invited some of the city’s top event planners to interpret the top wedding trends for 2014/2015. How? By creating a Pinterest board of their design inspiration — then bringing it to life inside Loungeworks’ wide-open venue space at 130 West 4th Avenue (hence: #130Weddings).
On March 27, all the design teams were on hand to unveil their specially decorated wedding spaces to a packed room of industry types (including Real Weddings, of course!). Here are the amazing trends we saw brought to life. You can see them for yourself, as each unique set-up will remain on display at Loungeworks until April 25.
