I have been waiting for weeks to attend the Wedding Co. Show last weekend, and it did not fail to impress! I was excited to have a chance to meet many amazing Toronto vendors out there and get to know some of the key trends in the wedding industry this year.
It was a great day spent and accompanied by the ever-talented Sandy Tam from Sandy Tam Photography. Thanks Sandy for all the images used in this blog post.
Here are some of the highlights from the show and the trends that will likely pop up in the weddings this year:
Elm Hill Cookies – Cookies as wedding favours in a personalized kraft box or as a cookie-lollipop. Loved the idea of the cookie-pop!
Ephra Event Design – Their display did not shy away from the use of bright bold colours of orange and blue to draw people into their booth. Something that will likely resonate with modern, urban couples not afraid to show their personality!
The Carlu – Where the Wedding Co. Show took place. What a great venue with multiple rooms to choose from (some with regal ceilings). A venue to consider if your budget allows for it! I saw it for the first time years ago at Doors Open Toronto and was blown away, and I still am. Here are some pictures of a reception room set up.
Paulette’s Original – How about a donut tree tower for your wedding? Weddings are all about personality, why not show some on your special day? Macaron trees are classic but this is a new spin and option for a wedding cake. And did I mention the sample of oreo donut we got was delicious! Maybe they’ll sample their fried chicken at the show next year 🙂
Cool Green & Shady – Their display was soft, luscious and romantic, the birdcage candle chandelier is an ongoing trend for those lovebird couples.
Sweetpea’s – I loved their display, it was earthy, rustic and organic. Their use of bulbs and green moss to decorate the centerpiece table coupled with lanterns and florals made it so inviting. Their mini bouquet giveaway is sitting on my desk right next to me, making me smile.
Truffle Cake & Pastry – Two words come to mind when I see Truffle’s work… pretty and feminine. Mint is one of the hot colour trends this year and when paired with gold, talk about elegant.
Patricia’s Cake Creations – Are you having a romantic wedding theme? Then this is the place for you… lots of ruffles, intricate lace work on a wedding cake.
David Dunkley’s KC Hats – Since the British Royal Wedding in 2011, fascinators have been gaining prominence and continue to be a trend in the world of wedding accessories. What do you think?
Cake Opera Co. – Want to see wedding cake as a work of art? Then Cake Opera is the vendor for you. Decadent and majestic, their display was beautiful. Their free sample of a macaron on top of a mini cupcake – love!
Paper & Poste – Invitations and wedding stationery for the hip and urban couple. I personally love stationery so this was one of my favourite booths to visit.
Were you at the Wedding Co. Show last weekend and which were some of your favourites? Hope you enjoyed my take on the show and pictures from Sandy!
