So far I have been to about 5-6 wedding fayres in less than three months and I think it is pretty safe to say I've had my fill for a while. For anyone who is new to them, word of advice; pace yourself. They are very exhausting! As expected there are usually a lot of sales people there, all asking you the same questions and you will be swamped with lengthy conversations and leaflets.
The one that was my favourite and really stood out from the crowd was The Glasgow Wedding Collective. They showcase some of the 'most creative, kitsch and downright gorgeous handpicked wedding suppliers from throughout Scotland'. Exactly what I am looking for! It is quite a small fayre, but the atmosphere is lovely and all the people on the stands are friendly, putting no pressure on you. The suppliers and products on display are super funky and vintage inspired. So far I have found an amazing photographer, stationery and some vintage decor accessories that I all have my eye to get sorted on (ASAP!). Each company also has a really unique personal feel, not seeing another wedding as just another big commercial money maker.
The next farye is on April 15th (11am – 4pm) at Hillhead Bookclub in the west end of Glasgow and entry is free. What's even better is that Hillhead Bookclub is uber cool, doing some great food and yummy cocktails. So plenty time to chat over any ideas and pop back up to admire some of their gorgeous vintage dresses and accessories.
