3rd Annual Winter Indie Wed Show & Market - 2012
Saturday, January 28, 2012 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM (CST)
Please join us for the 3rd Annual Indie Wed Winter Show & Market
Indie Wed is a THE alternative to the traditional bridal expo. For those in the midst of wedding planning, Indie Wed offers a one stop shop for all the best wedding artisans and professionals from the Midwest and beyond.
So what exactly does "Indie Wed" mean? Not only is our focus on promoting and supporting small, independent (indie) businesses, but also couples with an independent spirit. For some that may mean a full-blown unconventional fete while others may simply want to incorporate handmade items from local artisans. Indie Wed is wedding planning... redefined.
Indie Wed is not just a show but also a market where many of the artists will be selling their wares on the spot.

Indie Wed was founded by Kelly Maron Horvath in 2009. Kelly owns another business, Paper Stories, which is a local design and letterpress shop that focuses on creating innovative and stylish paper goods that are also environmentally responsible. Wanting to showcase Paper Stories' unique invitations but frustrated with the traditional wedding expo, Horvath decided to organize a special event specifically for independent designers and couples with an independent spirit.
Indie Wed, LLC and Paper Stories believe that it is also important to be socially responsible and regularly donate a portion of their profits in the form of micro-loans to entrepreneurs in developing nations as well as funding classroom projects in the U.S.
