23 Mar Pendry San Diego – Bride’s Focus Group Wedding Luncheon
Loved meeting all the brides-to-be at the new Pendry San Diego last month. The new hotel in Downtown Gaslamp Quarter is part of the Montage Collection of hotels and an incredible space with so many cool venue locations for weddings and events. Not only do they have exquisite ballrooms but the hotel offers six unique bars and eateries – all with venue spaces thoughtfully designed with their own look and feel. Our bride’s enjoyed a lovely lunch by the amazing catering group at the Pendry San Diego – we started off with refreshing Mimosas and tour of the upscale urban hotel. During break time – all the bride’s were delighted with an array of sweets from Pendry San Diego’s Pastry Chef- including mini wedding cakes for each bride to enjoy, Pendry pink macarons and more! Service staff impeccable!!!
We are truly lucky to have some of the best partners in the wedding industry help create our space. Blooms by Breesa Lee outdid herself with lovely florals in pinks and blushes. Exquisite light grey table linens by Wildflower – including pink napkins to add a pop of color to place settings. All the brides loved the Noveau Diamond chairs by Hire-Elegance Rentals – think ghost chairs in white! Definitely a new look for modern wedding design.
Our focus groups are always reserved for brides only so they can freely discuss all things wedding without family and friends commentary. As always they loved hearing other brides’ perspectives and challenges and quickly bonded. We gathered some great info to further help brides in the wedding planning process and we were able to educate many of the brides about the differences between wedding planning and coordination. All in all a great success! Stay tuned as we announce our next bride’s focus group here in Orange County, CA.
A BIG thank you to our raffle and gift bag sponsors: Kendra Scott, Diptyque, PaperPunched, MantraBand, Crate & Barrel, Frost Me Gourmet, FIT Athletic, Soul Cycle, Flutter Magazine and Pendry San Diego.

Frost Me Gourmet offered all our brides individually wrapped cupcakes! Such a delicious treat!
