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.
The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza is being held in Birmingham this Sunday, November 4th at Fazeley Studios from 11.30 – 5pm! Tickets are £6 at the door or £3 if you buy them in advance from EWE. “The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza was born out of a real and genuine need for an alternative wedding show,” says one of it’s founders Jo, “the mainstream and vintage sections of our industry are adequately catered for, but what if you are a geek or a goth?” There are also going to be some amazing giveaways happening on the day…
