Toasted Wedding Event Fall 2016 Show

Hey Everyone! I’m happy to announce that I will be a vendor at Toasted Wedding Events’ Fall 2016 show! I’m so excited to exhibit at this event again because it really is such a unique and fun bridal show. All of the vendors are super talented and a majority of them are local small businesses. It is so important to support these vendors because they are the ones that will make your wedding day dreams come true.

Tickets are $12.00 in advanced and $20 at the door. VIP tickets are $25.00 and they include a gift bag with a delicious drink!

Hope to see you all there!

It’s a new season and we’re stoked to be partnering with Dobbin Street, a new event space to hit Williamsburg that’ll have your jaw dropping it’s so dope.  Join us as we present a curated mix of 40+ independent wedding vendors, alternative and modern wedding ideas, handcrafted and eco-friendly goods and a party-like mood. Plus, music, yummy food bites + tastings, goodie bags stuffed with awesomeness, over $5k in raffles and prizes, PLUS free photo booth pix!

So what’s Toasted?

Traditional wedding shows aren’t for everyone. Toasted is a curated indie-wedding show & market aimed towards free-spirited and savvy nearly-weds looking for something a bit different. Combining an eclectic array of independent artisans, modern wedding ideas, handcrafted and eco-friendly goods  and a party-like mood, Toasted is a refuge from traditional wedding planning.

What you’ll find at our events:

  • Fresh and crafty vendors from the local area and beyond
  • Yummy food bites + tastings
  • Bars providing sauce to help you get toasted
  • Beats and musical performances to keep the party going all day long
  • Judgement free atmosphere welcoming gal + dude, gal + gal, dude + dude, couples of all kinds

What you won’t find:

  • Gratuitous amounts of tulle and polyester
  • Brides being herded through aisles of uninspiring wedding wares like cattle (we want you to dance!)
  • A traditional, ordinary, unfulfilling, let’s just say it…gaggy bridal show

The Bridal Show Event – February 25th 2015

This past Wednesday (2/25) I had the privilege of showing my products to beautiful future brides! A Bridal Affair to Remember hosted the lovely event at Sirico’s Caterers where a handful of other wedding professionals attended and displayed their services.

I would be lying if I told you I wasn’t  extremely nervous about the show. This was the show that debuted my leather bags and my bridal sashes. In the past, I had only hair accessories at my table, which was less nerve wracking but still nonetheless. However, the amount of compliments that were received about my new products made me feel empowered by my work. I put so much care and thought into each design (along with numerous hours constructing) that it was nice to hear it from outside sources. Not just my adoring family, friends, and of course my super supportive boyfriend.

Usually bridal fairs are a hit or miss especially for accessories. A lot of the brides that attend either just got engaged or haven’t said “yes to the dress” yet. I was genuinely surprised by the amount of ladies who were already looking for that something special to add to their ensemble. There were a few that weren’t sure what they wanted but once I placed a veil on their head it helped them visualize themselves walking down the isle in an Alyson Nicole custom handmade piece.

There were quite a few fan favorites at the show. The Jessica Leigh ($198) and the Catherine ($198) were the top loved birdcage veils.

For the traditional veils, the Annabelle ($388) received the most compliments with its hand cut lace and hand beaded trim.

In bridal accessories, the Everlasting Boutonnière ($86) had a handful of admirers especially among the fiancés.

As for the leather bags, people were gravitating to the wristlets, Forever & Always ($198) and Lace but Not Least with beading ($422), and the Cherish evening clutch ($224).

It was a pleasure to talk to each and everyone of the brides. I can’t wait to start working on their custom designed bridal accessories. The look on the bride’s face is priceless when you unveil that special something that compliments her day.

One of the next events Alyson Nicole is exhibiting at is for Lovely Happenings. The event will be held on Saturday, May 2nd at Drift Studio in NYC from 11AM-4PM. There, I will be showcasing my handmade goodies, talking about the importance of handcrafted products vs mass production, and I will be doing a “how to” demonstration.

 

 

Until next time,
xoxo Alyson
