My current crush is with the colour gold and with a can of gold spray paint and a bottle of gold glitter, I was pretty invincible!

Our booth was an eclectic mix of DIY and vintage items. What we didn’t already have around the house was crafted specifically for the show… gold spray painted zoo animals + pomegranates, glitter signage, and lots of neon confetti! Booth design is always a challenge and as a service based company, in this case, wedding planning, it is sometimes hard to portray what you do without coming across as a decorator. I’m super happy with how everything turned out and we didn’t have any confused brides wandering through our space, so that’s two thumbs up in my books!

It’s hard to imagine that Miranda and I started this show 5 years ago during a normal breakfast catch up. Created as an alternative to the cookie cutter wedding shows, Indie I Do is a great place to meet the coolest wedding couples looking to add a non-traditional touch to their upcoming wedding day. Not to mention, the best place to catch up with some of my favourite wedding vendors. That is, if you get a chance to leave your booth and check out all the other fantastic goodies at the show!

Off we go! Indie I Do is tomorrow and we are headed out to put the final touches on our Lotus Events booth. I have been dropping hints all week on instagram with pictures of our DIY projects. Fingers crossed that it will come together as brilliantly as it looks in my mind! Creating booth displays have to be one of the most stressful parts of the job!

We still have plenty of things to cross off on our to-do list, but we do hope that you will stop by and say hello!

  4. Performances: Vendors such as Pure Something will have models roaming the venue throughout the day, but keep a look out for shows on the “main stage”: Diva Boutique 11:45 | 12:45 | 13:45 | 15:45, Frocks 12:15 | 13:00, East Vanity Parlour 14:00 | 15:00 | 16:00, Samar (belly dancing!)
