Since February 2013, the Indie Detroit Wedding Ring has been a growing online resource for couples wanting a wedding rooted in the values of handmade goods. Just under a year after their launch, IDWR is proud to announce they will be presenting a bridal show that will cater to those handmade brides/grooms in search of local artists to contribute to their wedding.
Saturday, March 8, the Detroit Indie Wedding Show will debut at the Rust Belt Marketplace in Ferndale from 11:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m. Vendors from the IDWR will be on hand to book appointments, show work samples and give couples countless ideas and endless inspiration for their upcoming weddings.
