San Diego Slow Wedding Guide
Planning a local wedding? If it's yours, you probably dream of not just any wedding, but an event that is meaningful.
Melissa Strukel started planning events because she was motivated to help reduce the waste they generate, which led her to open Pow Wow Design Studio, offering unique space and event planning services that give clients access to Strukel’s collection of vintage furniture and decor. Strukel’s sumptuous, boho-chic aesthetic has brought national success, with Strukel saying that she often has to turn down small wedding projects. In those cases, she says, she enjoys advising couples on where to go and how to make the event look amazing.
Planning a wedding? If it’s yours, you probably dream of not just any wedding, but an event that is meaningful, intimate, creative, stylish, fun and epitomizes San Diego. Frankly speaking, a super-bitchin’ celebration of love that is affordable.
Your solution? Cue the chiming wedding bells in your head, and…
Welcome to the dawn of the Slow Wedding. If it’s going to happen (and we all know it will), shouldn’t we start it here? Could we call it a Tiny Wedding? Someone, somewhere is probably working on a Perma-Wedding. But here, in a city filled with passion for preserving what is local, we will call it a Slow Wedding.
So, what is a Slow Wedding? Well, it’s a wedding that harkens back to the time when weddings didn’t have to cost $100,000+, were styled with what was locally available, and the decor, flowers and food for such an event were sourced from close to home.
A Slow Wedding is San Diego bespoke at its finest, and it doesn’t have to break the bank or have a carbon footprint the size of Nebraska. We took some suggestions from Strukel and searched our talent rich city to curate a list to help you plan your very own San Diego Slow Wedding.
