For the Not so Blushing Bride...
Planning a wedding is a mine-field. Sure it's about love, commitment, family, but there are sources out there that will confuse you into thinking it also has something to do with CHIFFON, ORGANZA BOWS OR SUGARED BLOODY ALMONDS. You will be bombarded with imagery, convention and expectation from all corners, but the important thing to remember is that thang called matrimony ain't a paint by numbers affair.
You and your partner are individuals, right? You're brimming over with your own personalities, so let them be shown proudly on this, your most important day. That's not to say that you shouldn't take inspiration from those sources out there, but you should cherry pick them - one most definitely being the Most Curious Wedding Fair.
About to embark on their second year in Norwich, the Fair takes over St Andrews Hall for the day on Saturday 11th February. With suppliers from round the country, this is your chance to see your imagination interpreted in the vintage and bespoke treasures on offer.
From the mouths of the Curious lot themselves...
"Brought to you by vintage and wedding enthusiasts A Most Curious Party, the Most Curious Wedding Fairs are a new breed of fair which ensures exhibitors have beautiful, elegant offerings alongside fun, quirky, show-stopping elements that allow you to express you and your groom’s personality with flair on your big day.
