Crystals and Cake at The Wedding Co Show

I went to my first wedding show last weekend to help a friend plan a wedding, and to get a better picture of everything that was available in Toronto. Indeed, everything is available. There is no ceiling to your desires (which also assumes no ceiling on your budget). You can get a Twilight/Braveheart forest-type wedding indoors by renting candle-lit trees, or football-themed cupcakes for a bachelor’s party with the groom’s party, or slap gold foil on your 8 ft long dessert table for the Midas touch. You can have it in any venue that reflects your interest: golf courses, theatres, concert halls (like the Royal Conservatory of Music), art galleries (like the AGO), quirky-hipster Drake Hotel, or just general ballin’ like the Shangri La or Four Seasons Hotels. My impression of the theme was “zero limits.”

By the way, the vendors also feature also have amazing free samples. Like mini cupcakes, chocolates, cookies, macarons. In addition, there’s also live music that you can hire as entertainment. Seriously, this is greatest type of trade show ever.

Below are a few breath-taking vendors for, as the phrase goes, “Classic with a modern twist” look.

Beautiful, symmetrical earrings made of Swarovski crystals by talented Elsa Corsi.

The Wedding Co show also gave away their magazine, which had a ton of advice and content. My favorite was a mock wedding theme they presented different cake and invitations artists, and got their take on it. Seriously, check it out. Their makeup advice was simple, and wearable.

Overall, it was a great show. I’ll be showcasing a hipster-hippy themed set from the show next week.
