It’s Time for Winter Indie Wed!

indie wed chicago eco friendly weddings green weddings bridal expo bridal event

When planning an Eco-Beautiful wedding in Chicago (or anywhere), weekend afternoons are meant for shopping for wedding essentials crafted by indie designers and artists, admiring tablescapes created by some of the area’s hottest wedding pros and sampling craft cocktails and decadent sweets from local caterers.  Not quite what you’ve been up? In that case, change your plans for Saturday February 1st, ‘cause you’re headed to Indie Wed!  

This unique bridal expo offers engaged couples an opportunity to engage with over 100 independent vendors at their unique and whimsical displays.  This year, the Cirque de l’Amour wedding lounge will add some additional fun to the event, featuring can-can performances, Parisian jazz, circus-themed bites and a handmade kissing booth! The lounge is a perfect retreat to relax, meet cool, eco-friendly vendors and be inspired.

In case you’re curious, here’s a video peek at one of the past Indie Wed events!

Let It Snow

It’s snowing where we are today, so we thought we’d share a few flakes with you! Winter weddings inspire thoughts of pretty snowflake accessories and decor, and the result can be beautiful.  Let snowflakes perfect your wedding day look with a sparkly headband or bouquet. Carry the theme through to the reception with a flurry of recycled paper snowflakes near a large window or over an entrance, and a winter white dessert table of homemade sweets!

Paper Couture

Your wedding dress.  Creative?  One-of-a-Kind? Paper?

These creative dresses all fit the bill, and even if they’re a bit too fashion forward for you, these creations are certainly fun to gaze at.

But, if you do choose to go the paper route (pardon the pun), please don’t forget to recycle!

Real Weddings: Heather + Steve

Real Wedding Steve Heather Outdoor Weddings California Eco Friendly Weddings Green Weddings Eco Beautiful Weddings Magazine

Steve and Heather didn’t want a huge, fancy to-do wedding.  They threw most of the traditions, like not peeking at each other before the ceremony, to the wind, and just gathered the people they loved in a charming garden.  Amid strung flags and lights, the couple stood within a semi-circle of their guests, who cheered while they exchanged vows and rings. From there, it was good food, laughter and Scottish dance lessons.

This was very much a wedding rich with only the things and customs and people that really meant something to the couple.  Every piece of jewelry Heather wore had a significance and history—a connection to people of importance in her life, and almost everything used in the wedding was handmade or made by friends or family.
