On a steamy Melbourne day (who would have thought?) a group of Melbourne’s most talented Vintage Wedding suppliers filled Brighton Town Hall with jaw dropping dresses, stylish décor, funky hair and makeup, sparkling jewellery and impressive photography and videography.
There was a steady stream of couples who impressively chose the lure of spending their Sunday at a bridal expo rather having a snag at Bunnings.
I love expos. I love designing my little display (it’s real hard to cull the invites though!) and yesterday’s booth was certainly the girlish one I’ve ever put together! However, I was stoked with how pretty it was! Anyway, back to the important parts.
Thank you to the amazing couples that stopped by. The best part about attending smaller expos is the chance to talk to you. (Thanks to those who had to do laps and wait – I really appreciate it!) There may have been a line up or two sometimes, but I really think there’s value in getting to speak individually with you all and hearing your story and finding out what you are getting struggling with. I heard some common themes and common questions, so I will answer them for you in upcoming blog articles. The most common questions were good ones - “Where do I start?” and 'How does it work?'
The other part of expos I love is the instant feedback. I really liked hearing your honest opinions on the designs and your great ideas for what you want to see! It’s always interesting how from expo to expo the mood and taste of the attendee changes. My absolute favourite quote of the day was hearing our invites described as 'a wedding dress on a card'. Haha brilliant!
So, drum roll please….
Top 5 invites that couples stopping in their tracks!
2. The Chrissie pocket invite
Yep, navy, blush and florals are very on trend and the couples were loving the contrast effect of the pocket inserts and the great price-point. The rustic Kraft version was also super popular. This one has been creating a quit the stir on Facebook as well.
For those of you who were unable to make it on the day, never fear, he’s some piccies so you can see what you missed out on. If you have any comments or curly questions, feel free to send them through.
The beauty of shimmery pebble paper...
Mmm chocolate bar bonbonniere! When your bonbonniere looks this good, you don't want to eat it! Up top is the Erica lasercut - another super popular design.
The super popular Christie watercolour invite hiding in the back!
The contrasting black and gold on the Camilla really had the brides talking! It's a sexy invite! :)
