If you don’t already have enough reasons to attend the upcoming 6th Annual Winter Indie Wed, let me give you one more! Similar to last year’s event we will be transforming the entire 3rd floor of the Ravenswood Event Center into a lounge for attendees to relax in between visits with vendors below. I asked local event stylist (and Indie Wed alum) Katie Jayne from Jayne Weddings to plan this year’s lounge. After some serious brainstorming, we are excited to introduce….
Inspired by a 1970’s California-meets-Morocco vibe, Katie is bringing the warmth and radiance of the sun to Indie Wed! Experience a state of zen while sipping on bright libations in our mystically alluring Moroccan cabana. Treat yourself to our complementary manicures and massages. Nibble on global themed fair while listening to some relaxing melodies. Catch up with friends or capture the moment in our photo booth. Soak in the good vibes and plentiful inspiration provided by the unique wedding vendors. Yes this is a wedding show, but the 3rd floor will be the perfect oasis for you and your love to unwind from all that wedding planning.
To entice you just a bit more, here is a list of the amazing vendors who will be participating in the lounge.
Under the careful stylings of Jayne Weddings, Art of Imagination will magically transform the 3rd floor space with a beautifully draped cabana, lighting and over 900 feet of tissue paper swag crafted by Jayne Weddings. Katie from Jayne will also have a boho tablescape as inspiration to help anchor the room. Bowery & Bash, Chicago Farm Tables, Chicago Vintage Weddings and Re:Find Joy will be providing vintage rugs, gorgeous furniture and details for the space while Ultrapom will bring the sexy to the lounge with their sequin linens and gold poufs. The Foxglove Studio will adorn the space with lush florals in vibrant colors along with making floral crowns you will see on the wandering models. Paper Stories is designing all the signage and paper goods while Julia Franzosa captures some amazing photos throughout the day. Elysia Root Cakes will have a sublime Moroccan inspired cake on display. If you are hungry, The Publican/Publican Quality Meats will have a tasting menu that is sure to dazzle and will be providing the perfect libations for this fete. Have a sweet tooth? Blackdog Gelato can sweeten you up with their tasty gelato cookie sandwiches. After noshing, head over to the Smilebooth photo booth to snap a few pictures or get inspired to move with the playlist provided by Cage and Aquarium. And if all that doesn’t get your relaxed enough, Spa In Your Space will be providing free mini-manis and massages from 11-3.
