Here are some photos from our IndieWed booth at The Bauer by Jana Marie Photography. I haven't done a bridal fair since I very first started almost 14 years ago. It was one of those big, overwhelming ones at a trade center and though it was good to get my name out there, it just really wasn't my thing. I've been lucky to work from referrals by brides and planners, so I hadn't been interested in participating in another one until I heard about IndieWed. It was a small but well curated bridal fair at an actual venue and it had such a great vibe! All of the vendors really meshed well and it was a great turnout!
I had a small space and really wanted to appeal to different styles of brides, so I decided to show four options: bright and modern, organic and local (incorporating local makers Convivial Productions ceramics and Axel reclaimed wood tray), classic blush and gold and traditional blue and white with silver accents.
I also wanted to try something different from a standard book portfolio, so I ordered a ton of square prints, backed them with fun paper and hung them from a mixed greenery wreath. It turned out great and drew brides into my booth:)
We were lucky to be right next to Jana Marie Photography and added some bright pops of color and fun greenery to her booth. Love her energy and kind spirit, it shows through in her photos and we have been lucky to work with her on a few weddings this past year!
Ultrapom and West Elm created a fun "Stellar Lounge" for guests to hang out in and enjoy delicious treats from vendors like Dolce Bakery and Moxie Catering. Botanica created the florals for the head table, layout by Chappelow Events and paper goods from Sugarbean and Little Yellow Leaf. It really shows that the details, like dishes/flatware/glasses/linens/placecards, all can make a huge difference in how a tabletop comes together to create a cohesive style!
Much thanks to Ultrapom and Hello Bride for coordinating such a unique wedding fair. Can't wait to see how it grows next year!
