INDIE WED | Saturday, February 2, 2013 | 10:00am - 4:00pm
WHERE: Ravenswood Event Center | 4043 N. Ravenswood Ave, Chicago, IL
The alternative to the traditional bridal expo. For those in the midst of wedding planning, Indie Wed offers a one stop shop for all the best wedding artisans and professionals from the Midwest and beyond. Not only is their focus on promoting and supporting small, independent (indie) businesses, but also couples with an independent spirit. For some that may mean a full-blown unconventional fete while others may simply want to incorporate handmade items from local artisans. Indie Wed is not just a show but also a market where many of the artists will be selling their wares on the spot.
Tickets for Indie Wed are on sale now at http://indiewed.eventbrite.com
