Last weekend I visited my first Wedding Fayre in Sheffield at the Millennium Gallery. It was so adorable and I even shed a little tear! I can’t believe I hadn’t been to one before as I was in my element, I loved absolutely everything in the room! It has actually opened my eyes to something different I could potentially get involved in; I would love the job of planning weddings on a daily basis.
I would highly recommend visiting a Wedding Fayre if you are planning your wedding as it had absolutely everything on offer, whether it be just for ideas or to secure something special for your wedding day. I also learnt so much from speaking to so many different people. It is a great way to gather information, get contacts and understand everything that is needed to be planned for a wedding.
There were lots of different unique stalls on offer which stood out to me:
PHOTOGRAPHY: There were quite a few different stalls dedicated to photography companies who all had their own little unique style. It was interesting seeing all the different types of photos on display and also finding out how important it is to get to know your photographer personally and to have a good relationship with them so you can create the best photos possible for you. This was the best part of the day for me, I love photography and I loved talking to all the professional photographers. This is something I would love to do myself in the future.
FLOWERS: One company called ‘thebloomboxcompany’ introduced us to the best idea! They had Fake Flowers on offer that came in a little box. They were absolutely beautiful! I’ve always thought that you spend so much money on flowers for them to die in a week or so, but these you get to keep forever!! They seemed to be so popular and are something I would definitely think about when I get married.
PHOTO BOOTHS: There was one photo booth at the event which offered your typical comical shot but there was one very unusual item on offer too. It was a giant mirror that took group photos; an interactive mirror which printed out photo booth like photos!. It was amazing! You could check how you looked before the picture was taken so I think this is a fantastic idea. I’m sure this would go down a storm at a wedding!
FAVOURS: One particular favour stall stood out to us which was offering little lip balms and lip scrubs. I loved it, a really cute idea which was something everyone could use too. I even bought one as a sample and it makes my lips feel amazing. I love supporting small companies.
FLASHY LIGHTS: These seem to be the ‘in’ thing at weddings at the moment. There were a few companies which offered big lettering that lights up and sparkly lights for the dance floor and walls. These are an added bonus to a wedding in my opinion but they did look beautiful on the photos.
There were also many stalls offering decorations with loads of different themes, lots of cars you can hire, cakes in all different shapes and sizes and companies that make personalised rings. It was a really great event that I thoroughly enjoyed! I can’t wait to go to my next one with my friends..
Have you been to any wedding fayres recently? I’d love to know of any new and unique things you found! Let me know below..
If you haven’t been to a wedding Fayre and you are getting married soon, go to one near you as soon as you can; You will leave feeling inspired and incredibly happy, I can promise you that!
