The Recycled Wedding Boutique + Handpicked | A Bridal Event Recap

BSB is so grateful to our amazing BSB Vendor, Melanie of Oak & Honey Events for having the heart to create an event devoted to couples looking to plan their wedding’s with the ‘reduce, reuse, and recycle’ mantra at the forefront of their BIG day. Oak & Honey Events created The Recycled Wedding Boutique, a flea market of sorts, in 2014 for Northeast Ohio couples. Soon-to-be couples can shop new, slightly used and vintage items to create the wedding of their dreams from newlyweds who are looking to off load their wedding items.

For the first time, Handpicked | A Bridal Event joined forces with The Recycled Wedding Boutique in a two-day bridal event collaboration.  Hosted by Baci Designer + Oak & Honey Events at The MAPS Air Museum, this unique event was able to help Northeast Ohio couples plan their big days while giving back to their local community and doing their part to help reduce the environmental impact of their wedding. Founded in 2013 by Baci Designer, Handpicked | A Bridal Event is a completely unique bridal show experience bringing inspirational wedding trends to engaged couples in Northeast Ohio.

Together, these events came together for two days of beauty and fun with a focus on local small businesses.  All decor was repurposed for both days’ events and a portion of proceeds were donated to The MAPS Air Museum – a local volunteer-based, non-profit organization dedicated to educating people about the history of military aviation.

#TheImperfectBoss Campaign

It is with great joy and humbled honor I get to share some fun news today!

Over the course of the next week I will be one of the featured Girl Bosses sharing my imperfectness with the world, via #TheImperfectBoss campaign!

Here is the premise:

‘The Internet can be one crazy curated performance. We have all known the standard of perfection that it preaches.

(Black Sheep Bride will) join with hundreds of women on May 16th to 18th as we pull back the curtains and post confessions of what it really means to be a creative boss online.

Dirty secrets and all.’

THE HOPE? THAT WE CAN BREAK OPEN THE MYTH OF PERFECTION AND SEND A MESSAGE TO A GENERATION OF WOMEN THAT BEING IN BUSINESS DOESN’T DEMAND THAT YOU ARE FLAWLESS. IT SIMPLY DEMANDS THAT YOU OWN WHO YOU ARE. 

Join the Imperfect Party with us, won’t you?
