Win a Pair of Tickets to the Etsy Wedding Fair Reader Preview Event, 14th May 2015, London

Good morning weekend folk, hoping this finds you embracing Saturday and it’s opportunity to relax and unwind a little (here’s hoping?).  I’m still recovering from a non-stop few days on the #Kaleidotour – where I joined a number of other social media influencers including Bri Emergy of Design Love Fest, Hannah and Alice of Belle and Bunty, my gorgeous new friends Charlotte and Charlotte of Betty MagazineSymmetry Breakfast, Photographer Charlotte Hu (she has a pet hedgehog!), and anonymous foodie Instagrammer, Clerkenwellboy on a tour of Italy to experience the offerings of a range of selected Italian wedding and food suppliers. It was pretty damn amazing. I can’t even begin to tell you how spoilt we were by our hosts, Italian Eye and La Selva Villa – keep an eye out for my upcoming blog post, which I hope will be of value to all those considering marrying in Italy.

I’m excited to be sharing details with you this weekend, of an exclusive upcoming event, just for blog readers, that is being hosted by my favourite online market place, Etsy.  The Etsy Wedding Fair will take place on Saturday 16th of May through to Sunday 17th May, but we have a little treat for you;  Twenty Love My Dress readers are invited to enjoy an exclusive launch event on the evening of Thursday 14th May at Oui 2 Rooms, 89 Titchfield Street in London – before the main event opens to the public.

What a pleasant way to spend a Thursday evening…

The Etsy marketplace is full to bursting with handmade goodness, fashion, paper goods, jewellery – you name it.  What I love most about this diverse online market place however is that it supports the smaller, independent designer.  It allows anyone with a talent for creating, a superb showcase for their designs.  That’s really kinda important to me and to the values of Love My Dress.

The Etsy Wedding Fair event will provide an opportunity to have first view of the marketplace, obtain special discounts on all items and for you to shop in comfort without the crowds.  And to add to the loveliness, Etsy will also be providing free drinks, nibbles, live music, a floral wedding hairpiece workshop and a special gift to every Love My Dress reader who attends.

The designs you see on the page today are from sellers who will be exhibiting on the night and throughout the Etsy Wedding Fair weekend too.
