It’s a Small World After All

Last weekend was truly memorable for everybody. As one person put it, “A prince gets married, the bad guy is dead, it’s a real Disney weekend.”  For Devoted to You, it’s been a hectic weekend as well.  That’s because we were given the honour of exhibiting at one of the most trendiest wedding shows in Toronto, the Spring Wedding Show, organized by The Wedding Co. The event took place at the hip The Drake Hotel on Saturday from 10am to 4pm. This was the last wedding show I was going to do before the baby comes.

On Saturday morning, Stella and I headed down to The Drake Hotel to set up our booth.  The challenge for us (I love a good challenge) was trying to be creative with a 4 x 2 foot table to showcase our company.  We opted to follow the spring theme of the show and created a garden tea party-esque display:

We had a great time mingling with newly engaged couples and networking with the exhibiting vendors.  It’s great to meet these extraordinary vendors in person and get to know them personally rather than just reading about them online.  If you’re planning on getting married or are recently engaged, a wedding show is an all-in-one resource for information and can help you visualize your wedding theme.  Below I’ve highlighted some of the more interesting booths.

Whether you are a vintage fan or planning a vintage-style wedding, here are three vendors from the show that may interest you.

1. Vintage China Hire, originally from England, has opened shop in Toronto renting out English vintage china and hand-embroidered linens for weddings, showers, and tea parties.  Their enormous collection and accessories range from the Victorian era to the florals of the 1940’s & 50’s.

2. These vintage Canadian stamps can add a little reminescence to your vintage-styled invitations, by Send More Mail:

Looking for new entertainment ideas at your wedding or engagement party? Do it with style by hiring someone to script your love story into a play performed by professionals. Jennifer Goodhue, writer/director and Jen Wilkinson, creative director of Tell Me a Love Story are the brains behind the company. They can make your event a memorable one.

The bonus for me was that I got to meet a jewellery designer, Joanna from Belle Boutique. She was actually the one who made my favourite necklace, which coincidentally I wore at the show.  It was funny how we met…she asked me where I got my necklace and then said she was the designer! It’s a small world after all!

Finally, here a video made by Honey and Dear cinematography, one of the exhibiting vendors there.  Also check out The Wedding Co website for more pictures.
