Eek we have some exciting news for you all today! The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza will be back with a bang, with not one, but two vibrant, unique and eclectic shows this year! Full to the brim with the most wonderfully unique and awesome suppliers that will help you make your wedding EWEnique to you and your partner! This is hands down our favourite wedding fair, the vibe is amazing and the suppliers are out of this world good! Here’s 10 reasons why we know you’ll love it too…
1: There’s tons of EWEnique suppliers!
Ok, this one is a given but I’m serious, I’m talking every single business having been specifically approved and chosen meaning only the highest quality and most alternative suppliers will be there! There’s a wonderfully diverse range of services and products too, from historical inspired dresses to sculptural flower bouquets, from gothic themed wedding cakes to giant paper flower decorations! There truly is something for everyone.

2: The Treasure Hunt
Yep, you read that right! A real life treasure hunt for adults full of prizes where answers to clues can be found on the Mo Flo’s stands. We want EWE to get involved, pick stuff up, take a good look, really check out the Mo Flo’s and ask them tons of questions as they are all a super friendly bunch.
3: There’s a prize given to the best decorated stall
Meaning that the suppliers really GO TO TOWN to make their little space at EWE one to wow! Every stall is different and beautiful in it’s own right, which makes some serious eye candy for you guys!
4: The Fashion Show
Why sit down and watch the models walk up and down a runway when you can brush shoulders with them and see them up close and personal?! This is one of my favourite things about EWE, the gowns are showcased in a completely relaxed way as the models walk around the rooms in Birmingham! Don’t worry if you’re attending the London show you can still see the gowns up close as personal on the suppliers stands! I love being able to see the details of the dresses!

5: Chill Out Area & Cafe
Don’t worry if you tire easy and need to take a load off at EWE, they have their own designated chill out area and a café on site for those of us who need a sweet fix now and then! (I’m not the only one right?!)
Now I don’t want to give too much away here and I’ll be honest, I don’t know the surprises that the next EWE show holds but whenever me and Emily attend the eclectic wedding extravaganza something always surprises us in the most amazing way! Last time we were greeted by circus acts on stilts! EPIC? I think so!
7: There’s always a Photo Booth or two to jump in!
This is a big selling point for me! I LOVE a good photo booth but more importantly I love having memories from an awesome day! You’ll be able to take the prints home with you, remember what a fab time you had at EWE and you would have met an awesome company no doubt should you want to book a booth!

8: No Pressure
This isn’t one of those wedding fairs where the suppliers are like ‘oh hey do you want a leaflet?’ and the same thing happens for every single stall you visit, oh no baby! This is so much more than that! There really is no pressure when approaching the exhibitor’s stalls; they are all genuinely lovely people who want to hear about you and your wedding! Me and Emily end up staying at the show for hours and hours because everyone is just so darn nice!
9: Tickets are a bargain £3!!
Let me just repeat that, 3 POUND people! It’s such a bargain for the amount of awesome in the show! But if you prefer to be a maverick and simply turn up on the day, the door tickets are £6 each. Little lambs get in free and there will be some fun things for them to do too!!
10: There’s a show in Birmingham AND London!
Maybe you can only make one show, maybe you can make both, either way both shows are very accessible and If you haven’t realized by now you won’t want to miss them!
The first Extravaganza on the 1st February will take place at the beautiful Fazeley Studios, a heavenly gem in the heart of Birmingham’s industrial Digbeth.
The second Extravaganza on the 1st March will be held at Far Rockaway www.farrockaway.co.uk a hub inspired by urban street art and culture, serving New York style food that has opened its doors as a new wedding reception venue in the heart of Shoreditch, London’s creative district.
Each show is going to be different so go and explore…. who knows what amazingly Baaaad Ass things EWE will find for your EWEnique wedding day!
