We have been eagerly waiting to share the details for this years wedding pop up shop!
So, where did this all begin?! Our idea for the wedding pop up shop began last year. Maggie from Bella Bridesmaids and I were talking one day and started throwing around the idea of having a boutique pop up shop with a select number of vendors ranging from various wedding backgrounds. The idea was to be different from the huge wedding shows. Instead, we wanted to keep our pop up with more of a boutique feel that would be intimate and fun. So, we started by reaching out to our sweet vendor friends (or “friendors”), and soon our first wedding pop up shop was born!
Last year, our pop up shop was called The Westport Wedding Walk because it took place in various shops along a road in Westport. This year, we’ve decided to change it up a bit. Instead, all vendors will be in Bella Bridesmaids in Westport. And, we’ve renamed it to The “I Do” Pop Up Shop!
Also, aside from great vendors (more on that below), there will be light bites, sips, and tons of mingling! Keeping the show on the smaller side will allow all vendors to spend time chatting and getting to know the brides and grooms (and their families and friends!). And, to make it extra-fun, all vendors will be giving away prizes!
So, you may be wondering which vendors are involved! We wanted to have a well-rounded group of vendors, all of which are so talented, and most importantly, are incredibly friendly and amazing to work with. One of the things we pride ourselves on for our wedding show is including vendors that we know provide great service, product and customer experience!
