A List of Alternative Wedding Fairs across the UK in 2014
So wedding fairs can be a bit icky. More often than not, you’re faced with an underwhelming, uninspiring sea of ivory and talked at by wedding suppliers that all blend into one by the time you get home! But they’re not all like that, honestly! There are a handful of events out there that offer alternative, bespoke, unique, quirky, expressive, fresh, fun, creative, innovative, memorable suppliers and inspiration for your big day! (Yes, I know that’s a big list of buzz words)!
Researching alternative wedding fairs is way harder than it should be – we couldn’t find an actual list of alternative wedding fairs anywhere! It took the best part of a day of trawling through the interweb to compile the list below for our own reference initially, but we figured if we’re struggling you probably are too, so we thought we’d better share it! If we’ve missed any, and I’m pretty sure that’s likely, please comment below and we’ll be sure to look it up!
