2019 Winter Wedding Showcase! - Sweet Bough Wedding Collective

Thank you to the Argos Warehouse for hosting our main showcase space!

February 24, 2019

Showcase: 1-4pm
Meet the Vendors Cocktail Hour: 4-6pm

Planning a wedding (or know someone who is)? Join the Sweet Bough Wedding Collective for our Winter Wedding Showcase, a celebration of our creative community of Ithaca-based wedding vendors. Whether you’re planning a small elopement or the biggest party we’ve ever seen, you’ll find vendors here who can make your day exactly what you want it to be. Every vendor in the Sweet Bough community promises a collaborative, non-judgemental, flexible, and fun experience for couples of any age, race, gender, orientation, identity, religion, or tradition.

Not your typical bridal show! (In fact, we don’t call it that for a reason – not every wedding has a bride, some have two – and we’re happy to support every wedding for every couple!)

Pre-register for the event today!

A Little Background…

Cakes, jewelers, venues, florists, and more!

The Sweet Bough Wedding Collective is an alliance of nearly 100 vendors in the Ithaca area who abide by common principles of respect, inclusion, and compassion. From the big decisions like venues and caterers to the details like custom ring design and group activities, you’ll find your dream team of locally-focused vendors here.

The Details…

The showcase is a crawl-style event. Check in at our main event space, at the Argos Warehouse (at 416 E. State Street) or at Gee June Bridal (in Press Bay Court) to register and receive your event passport! Follow the map across the Ithaca Commons, stopping at member businesses on your way to meet vendors of all shapes and sizes. Get your passport stamped at each stop then turn it in at the Argos Warehouse for entries into the raffle for prizes generously provided by our member vendors.

Participating vendors include wedding planners and coordinators, photographers, caterers, food trucks, musicians, DJs, venues, bakers, videographers, officiants, floral designers, jewelers, dressmakers, lodging, hair stylists, makeup artists, transportation, and group activities for your wedding weekend or bachelor/ette party! All showcase vendors are part of the Sweet Bough Wedding Collective, which means they’re based in the Ithaca area and have agreed to our Terms of Engagement, promising a collaborative, non-judgemental, flexible, and fun experience for couples of any age, race, gender, orientation, identity, religion, or tradition.

Last year’s showcase was held at the Finger Lakes Cider House. This year we’ll host over 3x as many vendors!

All are welcome – you don’t have to be one of the folks getting married. Families, friends, and supporters warmly welcomed, as well as people planning any other type of celebration.
