Only a week to go until Indie Wed’s first-ever pop-up shop! So here’s our last roundup of vendor previews. All of these folks will have their lovely wares for sale or special order at the pop-up September 27 and 28. To purchase tickets, visit the event page for more info.
Your ring is probably one of those things that you spend as much time shopping for as your dress, right? So you need to consider Simply Wood Rings. They’re made of natural, beautiful, and responsibly sourced wood, plus whatever special materials you want to add: gemstones, shells, fossils, or (for one client) antique bagpipe keys.
For your head: Designer Nancy McAllister of Wildflower Couture hand-cuts and -dyes the silk flowers she uses in her headpieces and combs, and on her off days she studies with a master milliner. She’s also a wiz with sparkly things. AND she’s bringing a brand-new line of veils to this show.
Looking for garters? But something special, right? The level of detail in Previously‘s work speaks for itself; designer Elide’s vintage reproduction garters are inspired by the illustrations of George Barbier and 1920s ribbon work.
The right dress needs the right bag, whether it’s for you or a gift for your bridesmaids. Kristine Fachet of Sur Le Feu has you covered. Armed with a BFA in costume design, she makes heirloom-quality handbags one piece at a time in her Chicago studio, using a mix of new and vintage materials, and even pieces of vintage wedding dresses.
You might know Rock Candy by Helen for its pendants based on Jon Langford paintings and vintage stamps. But did you know Helen Tsatsos also creates one of a kind pieces from vintage jewelry remnants? Yup. Sparkly. And wedding-y.
Columbus, Ohio-based Peace Love Bling sources its products from women around the world following Fair Trade principles. The designs themselves? Sophisticated, fresh, and a great addition to a modern bride’s look.
See you at the pop-up!
