Creative Director Becky Moore says “Rock The Frock is a cool and stylish event aimed at couples who want a personalised wedding; a day that reflects their personalities and celebrates their unique relationship and experiences together. In recognition of this there are 3 aspects to our wedding fairs: firstly they are a celebration of the genius crafty and creative wedding talent that we have right here in Ireland, so you will find fashion-forward inspiration and experts who can create tailor-made wedding products and services to suit your taste, personality and imagination.
Next you will also find carefully sourced, authentic vintage treasures from dresses and jewellery to china tea sets and sparkling glassware, so you can be sure that no-one else is going to have the exact same look on their wedding day – it all makes for a less ordinary feel with a twist on the traditional.
We also address the big trend for DIY weddings – for the couples who want to have a go at crafting various elements of their wedding day, we also have sellers who are great at inspiring you to get creative and experimental with gorgeous fabrics, haberdashery, pretty papers, stamps and kits! Our fairs are fun but relaxed, gorgeously glamorous but friendly, and designed to put you at ease and make planning your big day a pleasure. Unlike other wedding events, most of the products and vintage treasures can even be purchased and taken away on the day!”
