Zola’s New Pop-Up Destination Helps Plan Your Wedding in Under an Hour
Newsflash: Getting married is stressful. Between creating the ideal seating arrangement to avoid familial conflicts, mastering the ultimate vegan/organic/eco-conscious menu, and searching for your dream dress, there’s a lot that can go wrong on what’s supposed to be your special day. Wedding registry destination Zola is trying to make the experience a little more chill with their new NYC pop-up. It’s staffed with store clerks who double as certified Universal Life ministers, filled with stations that will help you create a killer wedding playlist or 3D print your own custom cake topper, and a special CBD lounge area so couples can take a much-needed break from all the chaos.
“The Zola store is a wedding planning paradise, designed for busy millennials to plan their wedding in under an hour,” says Jennifer Spector, Zola brand director. Inside the space, she says, “Couples can create a wedding website, personalize their invites, and register for their entire newlywed home.” It’s also a very adaptable experience, offering lots of perks if you’re able to devote more than just your lunch hour. “If they have more time, they can make their own wedding cake topper in my favorite part of the store, our 3D printing chapel,” she tells us.
The pop-up is a great place to start for newly-engaged couples who need a bit of guidance for initial planning steps—making a website, designing save-the-date cards, or starting a registry are all easy ways to begin the process — but Zola was equally mindful of catering to harried brides who are already overwhelmed. Stuck for ideas? Attendees can meet one-on-one with a Zola Advisor or simply look around for inspiration. “We’re showing love in all forms in the store [by] highlighting ten newlywed couples, all from different backgrounds, as a way to inspire other engaged couples who are just starting the planning journey,” Spector tells us.
Zola’s pop-up is located in the Flatiron District of Manhattan and will run until April 2019, giving even spring-engagement couples plenty of time to stop in and start planning for their big day. Check out their site for daily hours and more info… and don’t forget to breathe. You’ve got this!
