Indyspire: The Independent Wedding Fair

planning your wedding is such an incredible time but it can also be stressful and full of decisions. that’s why we were just thrilled when we learned of the Indyspire: The Independent Wedding Fair happening on Saturday, February 16, 2013 in Minneapolis. not only does this event offer you the opportunity to meet and mingle with incredible, independent wedding vendors from all walks of the wedding industry, but it also wants to help teach you how to plan your wedding in the least stressful way possible. 

though many wedding fairs boast about being different than the next, we can truly say that this one offers a concept we have yet to see here; it’s the most ani-wedding fair wedding fair around. featuring vendors and speakers hand-selected by the Independent Wedding Association, they want to offer you an information-driven, fun wedding experience, perfect for those just getting started with their plans and those who want additional ideas for their plans already set-in-motion. we are seriously stoked for this event! it’s line-up is incredible and the best part about it all is the workshops they offer! yes, workshops. at a wedding fair. AMAZING.

here are the details:

moral of this wedding story is…you CAN’T MISS this incredible wedding event. not is this fair set up to let you meet with vendors but they want to help you get the most of your wedding plans, let your personalities shine, and more than anything, love the process you’re embarking on.
