Like many other wedding shows The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza showcases the best the industry has to offer from dress makers to cake designers, but this isn’t your ordinary wedding show. Step inside this wedding extravaganza to find custom comic book heels, three-tiered Back To The Future and lavish skull and rose themed wedding cakes, as well as, bespoke wedding gowns inspired by fairies and fantasy to tattoos and rockabilly. Their second show on March 24th continues to cater to couples who want “their” wedding be it Gothic, punk rock, geeky and everything in-between. It’s your day and your vision so “don’t be a wedding sheep…..it should be all about EWE!!”
Unlike ordinary wedding shows the suppliers, also known as the Baad Ass Mother Flockers, have all been hand picked and invited by the creators of The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza and industry professionals themselves – Sassy of Assassynation, Jo of The Couture Company and Vikki of Lillia. “The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza was born out of a real and genuine need for an alternative wedding show, the mainstream and vintage sections of our industry are adequately catered for, but what if you are a geek or a goth?” asks Jo. “The suppliers aka the Baad Ass Mother Flockers have been chosen and invited based on their personalities, the quality of their end product and the fact that they offer something unique. White linen covered trestle tables are discouraged and hard sells are banished.” The trio is also challenging their “Mo Flo’s” to create stands that are totally unique and interactive and unlike anything you’ve before.
With the success of their first EWE show behind them the trio has since been inundated with couples and Mo Flo’s asking, “when are EWE putting on another show???” Luckily you won’t have to wait long, EWE2 is scheduled to open on the 24th March 2013 at Fazeley Studios in Birmingham. In similar fashion to last year’s show, EWE2 will include competitions, a fashion walkabout and a treasure hunt with chances to win incredible prizes including free photography sessions, make overs and styling, free cakes, accessories and Big BIG Discount vouchers. If you missed last year’s show here’s a taste of what EWE is all about with photos of their November 2012 show shot by Louise Holgate Photography and Toast of Leeds Photography.
“we are putting a call out to all you gamers, goths, geeks, rockabillies, psychobillies, off the walls, mods and rockers, steampunks, new punks, old punks, flappers ,happy clappers, hipsters and hell-raisers, bohemians, folks who are inked and pinked, or if Ewe just want YOU to shine through. We hope to offer you some things that are really EWEnique for your weddings. Our Motto, “don’t be a wedding sheep…it’s all about EWE!!!”
