On March 10, the city’s best wedding fair, Wedding Crashers, returns to The Green Building from noon to 4pm, with 50 fabulous food, invitation, floral, photography, and event design vendors, as well as other wedding pros, followed by an after-party at the Bell House where you can hear live wedding bands and ensembles, and sample more great food and drink. Whether your vision involves a food truck, a raw bar, Brooklyn-inspired invites, handcrafted rings, an indie rock cover band or a sustainably-farmed bouquet, we tightly curate Wedding Crashers to showcase the most original, kick-ass vendors in New York.
Before the fair, you’ll also want to attend one or both of our brand-new wedding salons Wednesday nights at The Green Building designed just for the bride- and groom-to-be.
On February 20 from 7-9pm, style yourself out at our Wedding Trunk Show for men and women. You’ll find one-of-a-kind looks from 20 indie gown, suit, headpiece, jewelry and other accessories designers including Page Sargisson, Graham Withers, and Schone Design, get styling advice from Stone Fox Bride and make up demos from NYC Faces, and try food from The Cleaver Co. and wine from The Greene Grape. The Green Building will also be opening up their “trunk” of decor from previous weddings for you to carry away what you wish. Tickets are $15 per couple/two friends, $10 for individuals.
Finally, February 27 from 7-9pm, we’ll answer all your questions about planning, budget, trends, gay and straight wedding etiquette at our Wedding Planning 101 event. Our panel of seasoned experts includes Anne Chertoff, whose wedding planning and style advice has been featured on hundreds of websites, magazines and newspapers, Vané Broussard of Brooklyn Bride, Chef Rossi of The Raging Skillet, and Ara Farnam of Rock Paper Scissors Events. Betty Brooklyn will be serving light bites and Wright & Goebel Wine & Spirits will be pouring wine. Tickets are $15 per couple/two friends, $10 for individuals.
Your wedding is likely the biggest event you’ll ever throw. Wedding Crashers and our wedding salons will make the planning more fun, less crazymaking, and will help you put together a day that goes off without a hitch. The marriage itself? That’s up to you!
