Time certainly does fly!! We are officially one month away from our next Brisbane vintage and handmade wedding fair and we are definitely starting to get excited. This year our event will take place on Saturday 15th February from 10am to 3pm in The Tote Room, Eagle Farm Racecourse – 230 Lancaster Rd Ascot.
We have such an amazing bunch of vendors who are busily putting together their stand spaces to treat you all with inspiration for your upcoming weddings! Over the next few weeks on our blog we will be sharing a little bit about each of the lovely businesses so that you can all start to get excited about the gorgeous people you will meet!
Unlike generic “wedding expos” we discourage our exhibitors from having corporate looking stands and standing lifelessly shoving brochures in everyones hands with the repetitive “got your (insert their wedding category here) booked?”. Just like us, we have selected vendors who love a chat and can’t wait to actually meet you in person. Be sure to set the day aside to spend the time getting to know everyone and I can guarantee you will have booked some of the best wedding professionals in SE QLD by the end of the day!!
Sound awesome? We think so… and until then, here are a few of the wonderful businesses!
