This past Saturday I attended my first ever bridal show, Indie Wed, at the Ravenswood Event Center. Indie Wed is the alternative to the traditional bridal expo, featuring more than 100 independent vendors with beautiful, whimsical displays all set up in a pretty sweet venue.
Tickets for the event came courtesy of Katie Jayne of Jayne Weddings who had her very own wedding planning booth at the event which featured a sample tablescape of her work (pictured below) and if you need further confirmation of her awesome work, check out her own wedding which was featured on Style Me Pretty’s website.
My beautiful bridesmaid Amy accompanied me to the event. Having never been to one of these before, neither one of us really knew what to expect. What we found when we walked in were aisles of gorgeous displays, beautifully arranged tablescapes, samples from various caterers, beer tastings(awesome!), music from bands and DJ’s, traveling photobooths, artists selling their jewelry & headpieces, photographers, and even models dressed in beautiful vintage wedding dresses. It was as if Pinterest came to life!
Here are some of the highlights:
