When did wedding planning get so stressful? Your Google homepage is fit to burst with bookmarks, you can barely see your friends’ posts on Instagram for all the bridal-related content you now follow, and your inbox is chock-a-block with unread emails from venues you were interested in once-upon-a-time. Surely there’s a better way to do this.
Step forward The Wedding Collective Market. This Sunday, The Engine Works in Glasgow will be home to a bunch of Scotland’s most talented and thoughtful wedding vendors, as they showcase their work to engaged couples. At this market, all the hard work has been done for you so that you can once again find the fun in planning.
The Wedding Collective champions modern aesthetics: think foraged greens, seasonal food options, handmade pieces and a focus on sustainability. They believe in community and authenticity, and giving a voice to small, local wedding creatives.
Close Instagram, log out of Pinterest, and swap scrolling for strolling – choose to meet face-to-face with these original and visionary suppliers. They certainly know what they’re talking about, so what better way to spend a chilled Sunday afternoon than checking out their work and learning more about how they can help create a celebration that’s totally unique. Regardless of how big (or small) your wedding is, they’ll be able to match you with someone who shares your vision for the special day.
If that’s not tempting enough, there will also be good food courtesy of food trucks, and bangin’ coffee if wedding planning has you burning the midnight oil. Paired this with sweet tunes and it’s sure to be an afternoon of both relaxation and inspiration.
The Wedding Collective Market, The Engine Works, Glasgow, Sunday 20th January, 12-3pm. Tickets are £4 online or £5 on the door.
