Kicking off this year’s wedding season is the much awaited wedding fair in the Emerald Isle, OneFabDay‘s The Glitter Studio! An ensemble of some of Ireland’s top creative and talented wedding suppliers has come together for one full weekend in the CHQ Building in Dublin to turn every bride’s dream into a reality. Both team bride and team groom from different counties have witnessed Pinterest come to life and have definitely experienced a wedding fair like no other!
This year’s overall theme was It’s Written in the Stars and stylist extraordinaire Lesielé have definitely set the tone with these pretty origami installations.
The ever popular Bubbly Bar is back with a bang to make everyone feel super relaxed and really enjoy their TGS experience, vendors and visitors alike. Chin chin at 11AM! So with their bubbly on the one hand and camera phones on the other, our lovely guests then went on to their merry way exploring this life size (hashtag) wedding inspo.
Wedding fairs are a great place to meet suppliers face-to-face and see samples of their work under one roof. The Glitter Studio is no exception, however, what’s great about TGS is that because there are only a select few suppliers exhibiting, guests can actually talk to the vendors and ask as many questions as they want without having to worry of not being able to talk to other 400 suppliers and being completely exhausted at the end of the day. The whole venue have also been strategically organised into 3 thematic areas, guiding brides to the style that suits them best.
Top tips and expert advice were also offered through a series of workshops spread across the 2-day event. Workshops covered calligraphy, cake decoration, wedding styling, makeup masterclasses, and even wine tasting. All these to assist every bride and groom prepare for their big day!
Creativity have really exuded in all the stands and exhibitors showcased some serious Instagram-worthy designs and decors in their individual spaces. Greenery is Pantone’s 2017 Colour of the Year and this was definitely evident throughout the venue. Feast your eyes and see how vendors incorporated 50 shades of green into their exhibits!
Tons of other wedding essentials were also on display, from stationeries to wedding party decors and seriously stunning jewelries. This year, TGS have also introduced visitors to the art of decorative handwriting, an intimate clothing apparel, and gorgeous, gorgeous wedding shoes! I must say, our lovely brides were really spoilt for choice. Really!
Of course, what would a wedding fair be without wedding cakes? Bloggers’ favourites marble, metallic, and geode wedding cakes led this years wedding cake trends. Myself and my other cake designer pals have displayed a wide array of wedding cake styles and designs for our brides to have more than enough inspiration to take away with them. Another great thing about TGS is that visitors get the chance to go on a sumptuous cake tasting adventure and we definitely made sure of that!
For the first time this year, The Glitter Studio has also introduced a bridal fashion show where 7 of the top bridal boutiques in the country showcased some of the most stunning and prettiest wedding dresses!
The Glitter Studio is not just a wedding fair. The Glitter Studio is one spectacular production for everyone that’s planning a very memorable wedding!
