Usually, we don’t do a lot of wedding shows, but this winter we styled it up at several. You would think after last year’s Camp Indie Wed, we’d hang up our hats for a bit, but no. This year, we hit Indie Wed, Dose Trousseau, and helped launch the first Beverly Wedding Expo. At all three, we channeled our inner grandmother goddess to put together some wedding inspiration with just the right level of “eclectic” and “granny” combined. (If you didn’t know, we’re kind of known for this vibe.)
As we prepare for Indie Wed this weekend, we’re taking a look back at last year, when we put together Camp Indie Wed with some of our favorite friendors (aka vendor-friends)! It was so ah-mazing that we just had to share…
When we met Amy + John last summer, we knew we were going to love working with them. I mean… look at those photos… you can tell they are having a blast and loving every minute! That, plus, getting to work in one of our fave venues with some awesome vendors – we’re in!
The only wedding show we ever participate in rolled around last winter and we (per usual) stayed up all night putting the finishing touches on our booth. Indie Wed is one of our favorite times of the year because we get to see so many of our very favorite vendors in one place and get the chance to be creative with only the dimensions of our booth to confine us.
Laura saved the day when I was setting up and my giant, golden “P” popped. Let’s face it, “Let’s Arty” just doesn’t have the same ring as “Let’s Party!”

Indie Wed is the alternative to traditional wedding expos. From their website “For those in the midst of wedding planning, Indie Wed offers a one stop shop for all the best wedding artisans and professionals around the country. Indie Wed is the longest running independent bridal fair in the U.S.
So what exactly does Indie Wed mean? Not only is our focus on promoting and supporting small, independent (indie) businesses, but also couples with an independent spirit. For some that may mean a full-blown unconventional fete while others may simply want to incorporate handmade items from local artisans. Indie Wed is wedding planning… redefined. Indie Wed is not just a show but also a market where many of the artists will be selling their wares on the spot.”
