Anyone who has attended even a few wedding fairs knows that many have become overly large and impersonal events. At booth upon booth, in row upon row, vendors offer you one more brochure at each stop, and by the time you’re done (if you visit them all) you are exhausted and more confused than ever.
In the Twin Cities, a new wedding association was born a few years ago. The Independent Wedding Association is composed of a membership passionate about, and dedicated to, their crafts and clientele. They also are also passionate about offering a new kind of wedding fair: smaller and more intimate, in settings where conversations and connections are made in a relaxed and personal environment.
Last October on a crisp, crystal clear evening, the focus was on the Groom. Outside, a bonfire crackled, surrounded by Adirondack chairs and baskets of blankets. The evening included activities, info sessions, food and drink samplings along with opportunities to meet association members, who are all artisans at heart.
In February, the Association is poised to make another splash with their In (dy) spire Fair at the Hotel Ivy. Visit the IWA for ticket information and more details.

Leave a Comment A 2012 New Year’s Resolution is underway!
Welcome to posh|rebel et cetera, a place for supplementary features outside the posh|rebel website. Whereas the website is devoted to showcasing headpieces for brides and wedding parties, this et cetera page will be the place for sharing information, resources, links and inspirations. A place for facts, fancies and fun! Whether you are looking for ideas for your bridal hairpiece, veil or fascinator, or for general information and resources for your wedding or special event, I hope to be a resource for you as the page develops through time.
Please feel free to leave me feedback on topics you would find interesting, especially regarding headpieces, bridal or otherwise!
Here’s to 2012, may you have the best year yet!
