We’re sending out the final email to those who have signed up for our mailing list for the Tiny Weddings Fair. Our second fair is almost upon us! It will take place this Sunday 10th March at the Birmingham Library and Rep Theatre, Centenary Square, Broad Street, Birmingham, B1 2EP. If you haven’t purchased your tickets online yet, you should; you will pay half the entry fee charged to those who pay on the door. Tickets are just £4 in advance, and we have so much awesome stuff planned for you, we wanted to share the newsletter as a blog post so everyone can read it!
There’s more than one type of Tiny Wedding, and we’re hoping to be able to help you plan the one that suits you. We will have more than thirty exhibitors and speakers, all of whom believe small is beautiful when it comes to weddings!
You might want to elope, or bring a small group to somewhere far away; exotic and exciting. If you do, we have planners and photographers that specialise in far away places. Come to the talk at noon, about how to choose the right country for your wedding, and then meet with people who can help you to make it happen.
Maybe you want to take a small group of your close family and friends to a beautiful location just a drive away and take a whole weekend to share the experience and send quality time together. We have several beautiful venues that would welcome you to stay with them for the whole weekend, or to hold a day’s celebration with them.
We have several more local venues and country estates that are not too far away, who welcome small groups for a more low-key affair, including a local restaurant who can host weddings, and the hosts; Unique Venues Birmingham, who will be giving tours of the locations where you can hold a wedding or receptionin the building. These will be at 11:30 and 1:30. We also have a private chef and a mobile bar who can cater for your small wedding, wherever it may be!
Wherever and however you get married, if you’re a bride, then you’ll probably need a dress. We will have several racks of designer bridalwear at up to 85% off the RRP to our fair that you can try on in the private changing rooms set aside. So, you’ll get the chance to try out some dresses without the hassle of a bridal appointment. We have two jewellers and vendors who can supply you with beautiful paper or felt bouquets or accessories that will last a lifetime, as well as a florist who can supply real blooms.
For the planning on eloping, then the talks on how to make that happen – with either practical advice on the legalities of it all, tips on how to manage family members and suggestions of awesome locations, then come along to hear one of the talks being given our elopement expert, at either 11:00 or 2:30.
We will have four celebrants from the humanist society who will be able to offer suggestions on unique elements and rituals that you can put in to your ceremony so that your wedding is totally tailored to you as a couple. They’ll be giving a talk on this at 2:00 and they will also have an exhibitor stand.
If you do get married close to home, or plan of throwing a party at home after an elopement, then you’ll probably want to meet Gaming4Weddings, who will be in the lobby with two of their gaming units, for you to try out the entertainment they could bring to you wedding (or for you to leave your groom to happily play while you try on dresses!). We have photographers and videographers who want to travel, and have a passion for smaller weddings.
Aside from the talks and tours, come along to meet some of the thirty exhibitors we will have at the fair. There will be so much experience and knowledge of unique weddings in this room. Coming to this fair on this day could hugely affect the choices you make for your wedding. And you’re only going to do it once, so make sure that your wedding is exactly how you want it to be!
