The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza!

Today is the first day I’ve ever wished (briefly!) I lived in Birmingham. It’s not that I don’t like my home by the sea on the edge of the Lake District… but there is a Big Exciting Thing happening in Birmingham on the 4th of November.

If you read UK wedding blogs you probably know all of this already. And if you live near Birmingham and read UK wedding blogs I’m incredibly jealous. You’re going to the Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza, aren’t you?

For the reader (hello, you!) who hasn’t already heard about this, I am delighted to be able to share the news of this new breed of wedding fair with you. Here goes…

The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza – It’s all about EWE!!

Sunday 4th November 2012 in Birmingham

So…… What happens when three slightly mad wedding suppliers come together? They hatch a crazy plan….that’s what!! When Sassy (Assassynation), Jo (Couture Company) and Vikki (Liliia) got nattering over a glass of wine (standard) they decided that they would put on a Wedding Extravaganza with a real mix of suppliers.

“We want to put on an amazing wedding extravaganza (aka fair) that would be exciting for both the suppliers and couples alike, so we hatched a plan “A-team” style (Hannibal Smith would be proud).

The idea is that we want people to shake off the shackles of what is considered ‘normal’ or ‘traditional’ and to take their own personalities and loves and stamp them on their weddings, so we have picked suppliers who can help ewe do that!

This is no ordinary wedding show, the suppliers aka the Baad Ass Mother Flockers have been chosen and invited based on their personalities, the quality of their end product and the fact that they offer something unique.

White linen covered trestle tables are discouraged and hard sells are banished, we want you to come along, have a drink and a good old natter to the Mother Flockers that catch your eye. The Mo Flo’s are being challenged to create stands that are totally unique and interactive. As well as having awesome Mo Flo’s at the show, we will be running some competitions, having a fashion walkabout/ramble and organising a treasure hunt! Prizes will include free photography sessions, make overs and styling, free cakes, accessories and Big BIG Discount vouchers

So we are putting a call out to all you gamers, goths, geeks, rockabillies, psychobillies, off the walls, mods and rockers, steampunks, new punks, old punks, flappers, happy clappers, hipsters and hell-raisers, bohemians, folks who are inked and pinked, or if Ewe just want YOU to shine through.

We hope to offer you some things that are really EWEnique for your weddings.

Our Motto

“Don’t be a wedding sheep…it’s all about EWE!!!”

Our venue, Fazeley Studios, was chosen due to the fact it is such a gorgeous space (and yes they do have weddings there) with tons of natural light to show off our Mo Flo’s work in the best possible way.

Have a ramble round the website, register and get your tickets early at a BAAAAArgain price of £3. YES!!! EWE heard right…..only £3!!!!
