WOW what a weekend to meet with couples who are planning their nuptials.
Some were far down the track in terms of planning and were looking to vendors like us to ‘fine tune’ their theming and decorating, others were at the starting gates. One of my favourite comments of the weekend was asking a lady ‘how far you are down the track in terms of planning your wedding?” and her response was “Well I do have a groom at least”.
Something that certainly is clear to us in 2018 is that every couple wants their wedding to be bespoke and show their personality and character. Cookie cutter weddings are definitely out. Rustic, Vintage, Elegant, Boutique are in.
In regards to the venues some were looking for a blank canvass to completely decorate and theme to taste with food trucks and festoon lights, hay bales, live bands, lots of fun etc. Others were looking to more traditional wedding venues, but one thing is for sure the couples want to put their own stamp on their day and make it as memorable as possible.
It was great to share ideas with all the couples. Everything from managing the full wedding process to just adding the finishing touches with some of our centrepieces and styling.
The fair was gorgeously decorated and a lot of thought and effort went into every Vendor’s stands (a video of our stand is below). It was great to be able to meet businesses that we have worked alongside previously and collaborate many more with new suppliers.
We will be back for 2019 for sure!!!
