Indie Wed Bridal Expo - 1.28.12

Ten years ago, with a shiny new engagement ring on my finger, I went to one of those bridal expos. There in the bland hotel ballroom my eyes glazed over one dull vendor booth after another. After 20 minutes, I'd seen enough to know it was a one-way ticket to Generic Wedding town, complete with rubber chicken and cheesy DJs.

Lucky for you, 2012 bride, there are other options!

Indie Wed is a bridal expo focusing on small, independent businesses, and also couples with an independent spirit. For some that may mean a full-blown unconventional fete, while others may want to incorporate handmade items from local artisans.

With 100+ of unique & whimsical displays from the Midwest and beyond, brides can actually shop, as the majority of vendors will have wares for sale. Bring your other half and dance to tunes the DJ spins, admire tablescapes created by some of Chicago’s hottest wedding pros, and nibble samples from local caterers. Free interactive workshops and lectures will run all day. In short, it's THE alternative to the traditional bridal expo.

Purchase Tickets and get 20% off using the code SECONDCITY. And be sure to peep their adorable promo video!
