Wedding fairs are changing, with the traditional hall full of nervous exhibitors and white table cloths taking a back seat. (Yay!) Events like Zoe Lem’s vintage wedding fair have taken centre stage, and their creative approach to planning is a refreshing change – as well as being a huge success and inspiration! Championed by top wedding blogs like Love My Dress, Zoe Lem’s Vintage Wedding Fair takes place in April. Will you be there?
It’s showtime! Brides-to-be will get a glamour masterclass at Zoe Lem’s Vintage Wedding Fair, Sunday April 14, London
A unique wedding fair with an emphasis on education takes place this April in London. The fifth Zoe Lem Vintage Wedding Fair brings together the best suppliers and experts in the industry. This event will not just showcase glamorous trends, it will help each bride find their vintage style and push a personal twist on their enduring elegant trend.
The Bloomsbury Ballroom in London provides the stunning art deco background for this unique event, which takes place on Sunday April 14, 2013.
Zoe Lem and her team are famed for expertise in shape and styling to create both bespoke and ready to wear designs based on vintage styles to suit your shape and wedding theme. This is the fifth Zoe Lem wedding fair and a not-to-be-missed opportunity to benefit from the team’s expertise.
And as every bride wants her wedding to have the edge… you can get even closer to their experts with VIP entry. Zoe is hosting a VIP morning from 10AM-midday on the day where guests will be entertained with a private cabaret and fashion show and will have the privilege of a Q&A session with hand-picked suppliers.
Doors will re-open to the general public at 12noon and all guests will be given a membership to a secret club, which will entitle them to a discount on over 100 unique wedding suppliers. Each bride gets a series of codes to use online, which can save hundreds of pounds.
The event, as Zoe says, “showcases the glamorous edge to vintage which is, I believe, the side worth revisiting; less aprons and teacakes and more Hollywood glamour.”
Zoe create the series of unique wedding fairs with the motivation of inspiring brides – there is so much scope within the vintage genre for wedding day looks and Zoe says it is about matching the right sort of vintage glamour to each, unique bride.
While other wedding fairs encourage you to browse and buy, Zoe is here to educate and excite. The possibilities are endless, whether you just want to add a hint of vintage flair to your event or whether you want to immerse yourself fully in the glamour of days gone by.
Workshops last just 15 minutes, so you can dip in and dip out until you are confident with your big day direction.
“By the end of the day, brides will be confident about which era suits their body shape and taste, right down to the finer details such as deportment, posing for photographers the way ladies in the 1930s would have done; how to create the perfect victory roll; how to dance as they did in the 1940s; and lots more…” she said.
While other fairs focus on fashion, Zoe Lem Vintage Fairs cover all areas from photographers, videography, florists and dresses to accessories, shoes, catering, stationary, crockery, props and entertainers.
Guests will be treated to a champagne bar, tearoom, pamper room, charm school, photographers gallery, workshops, performers, singers, dancers and DJs and much, much more.
