A big hello & a little sorry...

Yesterday, Sunday 19th February, was the Quirky Weddings Alternative Wedding Fair in Belfast. It was fantastic day full of creative independent designers & suppliers all offering brilliant ideas for any style of wedding, from venue choices to the tiniest details like chocolate shoe favours!

The venue was Belfast's Crescent Arts Centre, an unusual but perfect choice for an alternative wedding fair, and the Quirky Weddings team did an amazing job getting the word out about the fair. From opening time of 1pm, the arbee cards stall was absolutely packed! It didn't quieten down until about 4.45pm - only 15 minutes before closing!

After getting our stand set up, I like to have a good look around the fair, meet other wedding businesses and take some photos for the blog. Unfortunately I didn't have enough time at all this time - I usually have my lovely sidekick & chief elf, Mel with me at wedding events, but as she was off sick (get well soon Mel!) so I was on my own all day and couldn't get a chance to leave the stand. 

This Burton & Taylor invitation was everyone's favourite on the day!

So this blog post is a great big *hello* to everyone who came to the fair, stopped by to have a chat about their stationery and afterwards made friends with us on Twitter & Facebook!  
I also have to say *sorry* to everyone who I didn't get a chance to speak to, it was just impossible to give proper time & attention to all the lovely couples which visited our stand to ask about their wedding stationery.  Please get in touch, call or email if I wasn't able to talk to you properly at the fair!

Lastly,  a big wave to all my fellow wedding businesses who I missed on the day - you know who you are & I've been teased a little bit on Twitter for being a zooming blur at the fair lol! ;)

Picture Perfect

I've recently discovered the world of Instagram - the free app for iPhone for photo-blogging & sharing.

There's hundreds of online reviews about the joys of Instagram so I won't go into details about how it works, but I love being able to post & tweet pictures of crafting & creating in progress. If you're on Instagram already or decide to give it a go, look us up on there - we're listed as arbeecards.
