One Fine Day Wedding Fair Melbourne 2017 Recap

One-Fine-Day-2017-runwayIt is no secret we love One Fine Day Wedding Fair, after all we wouldn’t be showing for the 5th time in a row if we didn’t!

Year after year, the team at OFD blow us away with amazing styling, great venue and just a great bunch of people to work with. Whether you are planning a vintage wedding, beach wedding, romantic wedding or even an elopement, you will sure be inspired by the talented vendors the OFD team hand picked at each fair. Definitely no tack!

This year, we showcased at a brand new venue- The Melbourne Showground. (yes, it’s gone this massive!) The industrial setting made the perfect back drop for all sorts of modern styling. We loved it, as the industrial look mirrored our Bridal Loft and we took a little piece of our boutique with us. Including a small change room so brides can get a feel of our designs immediately, among all the wedding planning excitement!

And of course, there was the runway! This year, we presented our LOVE STRUCK collection, separate pieces adopting the layering concept. Gorgeous models graced the catwalk in layered pieces, creating a unique look each time. We were lucky enough to have Jeanette Maree provide her stunning headpieces which completed our gowns perfectly.

We had the most amazing time at the fair and will definitely be back next year. We can’t wait to see all the brides again at our bridal loft soon.
