Welcome to 2013 and to those of you who are newly engaged- huge congratulations from us at Vintage Chic Wedding Fair!!
Christmas and New Year is a traditional time for couples to announce their engagement. It’s such an exciting time of the year and a special time to share this wonderful news with friends and family.
It’s always interesting to hear how people become engaged and these days some go to extraordinary lengths to make it unique and memorable and oh so romantic.
After the announcement, comes the big P word. PLANNING. Where to start? Where to find the ideas, inspiration and themes and the expertise to put them in place.
The internet is a great place to start your wedding planning and there are some amazing Bridal magazines too. However, wedding fairs are a place to experience things. All of your ideas take on a different dimension once you can see them, touch them and feel them. We’ve used these terms before but in all fairness they’re still valid.
We truely believe that planning a wedding is a momentous and happy time in a couple’s journey towards being married but we appreciate that the planning part can be a tad overwhelming at times.
Our aim is to bring together a selection of suppliers who define vintage with a modern twist. So what does that mean exactly? In a nut shell our fairs are for Brides who are looking to incorporate details of a certain vintage era into their wedding day theme. For a few years now, vintage weddings have become more and more popular but that doesn’t mean to say that they are all the same. Each vintage era be it 1930’s – 1970’s all comes under the vintage umbrella. Yet a ’30’s wedding and ’70’s wedding couldn’t be more different for obvious reasons!
Our next fair on 14th April is at a new venue and we are so excited to be hosting our Spring fair at the stunning Malmaison Hotel in Birmingham. Situated at the iconic Mailbox, The Malmaison has a touch of vintage inspired glamour about it.
The venue actually holds some wonderful personal memories for us as we stayed there as a group of hens for Cathy, the founder of Vintage Chic Wedding Fair’s hen night in Birmingham back in 2007. I can still remember the hangover which was made a little easier waking up in such a comfortable and stylish bedroom.
So, what can you expect to see? With a pinch of glamour and a large dose of style, our exhibitors are handpicked to provide Brides with varied, high quality vintage inspired suppliers. This is a great opportunity to see their work and meet the people behind it as part of your important wedding planning and preparations.
Simon Partridge our signature entertainer will again be doing what he does best by singing some fabulous swing jazz which really does create the best atmosphere.
We’ll be bringing you some more information about the event and the exhibitors soon and in the meantime, save the date in your diary! xx
