Back in early 2012 a wedding show like no other was borne. It tumbled, devoid of elegance, from the crazy hearts and minds of three creative wedding industry suppliers, Sassy (Assassynation), Jo (The Couture Co) and Vikki (Liliia Designs). Their desire was simple; to encourage couples to shake off the shackles of wedding conformity and showcase the very best of alternative wedding industry suppliers, who are also known as The Baaad Ass Mother Flockers!! (Aka Baad ass Mo Flo’s) who all offer a diverse and eclectic feast of all things wedding in a fun, friendly and relaxed environment. I went last year – It was awesome! There was so much cool stuff going on – Check out how it looked with these photos from the day from Louise Holgate Photography.
The motto is ‘Don’t be a wedding sheep, it’s all about EWE!’
Since 2012 The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza has showcased a wonderfully diverse range of services and products, from kick ass wedding dresses to sculptural flower bouquets, from gothic themed wedding cakes to some of the best DJ’s around. Previous shows have included live music, stilt walkers, a procession of models in gorgeous dresses and accessories on the Real Bride’s walkabout and amazing prizes to be won in the renowned treasure hunt.
In 2016 the Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza is back with a bang, with a vibrant, unique and eclectic show in Birmingham!
The Extravaganza will be held on the 21st February and will take place at the unique Bond Company, a hidden gem in the heart of Birmingham’s industrial Digbeth. The Bond Company even has a café which is a great place to sit and consider all the unique wedding products and services on offer.
Each show we do is different, so come and explore…. who knows what amazingly Baaaad Ass things EWE will find for your ewenique wedding day!
To top it off we are bringing back our immensely popular ‘Treasure Hunt’ where you stand a chance of winning tons of great prizes. Some of our super generous Mo Flo’s/Suppliers will even be giving away prizes or discounts of their own only available at the show!!
There will be a chill out area and café facilities so you can have a drink and something to eat and just sit down and take it all in. 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!!
For the little lambs there will be a colouring competition in the Café with prizes to be won.
One thing we can assure you of is that it will be a fun day out, with lots of giveaways, lots to learn and see and not one bit like a ‘normal’ wedding fair!
