OMG. If you ever have the opportunity to attend an Indie Wed show, jump on it!!
What is Indie Wed, you ask? Well, Indie Wed is the alternative to the traditional bridal expo - considered wedding planning redefined.
I love this event for so many reasons...the support of small local businesses, truly unique talent, ideas and products, the embracing of couples with an independent spirit - and a cool, intimate setting that feels like a cocktail party AND artisan market at the same time. Heaven.
To date the Indie Wed shows have been strictly in the Midwest...but rumor has it they are expanding nationally in 2013! Super exciting. Their next show is in Denver on July 31st (their Rocky Mountain debut- and in my mind, a perfect place for this event!)
After attending my first Indie Wed show in Milwaukee, I give it a definite thumbs up - and even recommend it for those who just love cool, unique inspiration for fashion, entertaining, food, paper goods, photography...not necessarily just wedding. They pick such great venues to host the show & market!
Here is a peek at the Milwaukee show...
Who knows? Maybe I will see you mingling with a cocktail, dancing to the live music or browsing the market at one of these upcoming events...
Chalkboard wedding details are such an amazing way to add charming details to your wedding without breaking bank all while adding personality+ to your celebration!
These custom signs add the perfect punch to menus, escort cards - and even your photo booth or invitatations!
Check out some of my faves that you could easily whip up yourself (or enlist the help of some new found friends on Etsy!).
