I’ll confess, even though I work in the wedding industry, I’ve only been to a wedding fair once (and as a bridesmaid at that). And I’m pretty sure I only did it for the free cake samples and raffles. (I didn’t win. Boo.) But when APW’s Advertising Manager Emily (also of Emily Takes Photos) and Elizabeth of Lowe House Events told me that they were throwing together a very small, very local East Bay wedding gathering called Mad For Love, I was slightly less dubious. Then they told me there would be free cake and champagne and I asked them where I could set up my booth.
So what does this have to do with you? Well, again, free champagne. But in short, if you’re local to the Bay Area and want an opportunity to snack on some cake and champagne (dead horse, meet my fist), and meet up with sane vendors (many of whom are APW sponsors, or who have worked on APW weddings) in a non-squicky way, stop on by. Attendance is free, plus Meg will be there signing books and I’ll be there trying out all my best jokes on unsuspecting victims. If you want to learn a little more about the vendors who will be at the showcase, hop over to the Mad For Love website. Plus, TOAST, the bar hosting the event, is the first bar Meg ever took her baby to. And her baby has high standards. Just sayin’.
And if you do stop by, please come by and say hello and let us know you came from APW. We love meeting readers in real life!
Editor’s Note: This post was not sponsored Mad For Love, and APW is not affiliated with the event. We’re just letting you know where to find us. In a non-stalkery way. Which is nice.
