The Wedding Co Show – 15th Anniversary

Hi everyone,

I am so excited to be writing about how I spent my weekend at the annual Wedding Co Show  which is in its 15th year now, at Artscape Wychwood Barns. We met some wonderful new vendors and said hello to a few familiar faces. This post specifically is packed with florists and selected unique vendors I would love the opportunity to work with at upcoming events. They were very nice and friendly, their work is amazing and I have a good feeling that they’re just the people that my clients would love! Let’s get to the list, shall we?

For any couple getting married, the Wedding Co Show is not to be missed! So much prettiness in one room. About 60 vendors – I didn’t even get around to speaking to all of them the three hours I was there. The quality of the vendors were carefully selected and curated – they were all top-notch! There wasn’t really one that had a better looking display than the other… which is why your decision will have to come from your personal connection with each vendor, inquiring about their pricing, getting a sense of their service and their flexibility and the trust you have of them to be able to execute what you are looking for.

Can you tell that the above are paper flowers? I had to a double-take and touch and feel them before I knew for sure they were just paper. You can learn to make these beauties at The Wedding Co‘s next workshop coming up in April!

Quince Flowers produced a beautiful floral wall which we happily posed with! We love it when vendors go all out on their booths – they truly value their brand, have a standard of which they hold themselves to and a certain respect for their audiences – and it shows!

JENLA Cake showcased captivating cakes (and they’re delicious to boot!) that I was immediately drawn to. Owner Jen is super nice too which is a big plus in the Wonder Chic books. One of my personal favourites of the show 🙂

N. Historiae is a funky, unique, high-end jewelry line by Flora Lam. Her pieces take my breath away – it was hard to peel my eyes away from her booth! The Horned Cuff to the right is one of my favourite pieces.  Brides, they also have a bridal line that you do not want to miss out! Another of my personal faves.

We loved learning about different florals with the lovely Erin of Mum’s Garden. We 100% felt Erin’s passion for flowers and loved the story of how Mum’s Garden began. You can read about it here.

We’ve seen Green Autumn Photography all over magazines and weddings blogs. They have photos that make you want to see more and more. It was so great to finally meet Sonya at the Wedding Co Show. Can you tell they love the outdoors? 🙂

We hope we’ve helped you narrow down some amazing vendors! The next step is to contact them to get a quote. There’s no harm interviewing and requesting quotes from three different vendors in the same category. That way, you get an idea of their pricing, how they work and what they can and cannot do for you. As with your fiancé – once you’ve found the one… Stop Looking! Your chosen vendor… whomever you decide to go with is perfect… and the right one for you. It will be your job to have full faith in them to make things work (unless of course they’re totally unreliable, then in which case, run!).
