Words by Karina Lowndes
4 April 2022

While everyone has been talking about Will Smith’s outburst at the Oscars (and wasn’t that something), we’ve been busy gearing up for One Fine Day in Melbourne (at the end of the month) – a one-of-a-kind wedding fair and arguably this year’s most anticipated industry event.

We’re excited to be partnering in 2022 with One Fine Day alongside some top quality businesses including Hello May, DANN Event Hire, Tommy Collins, Chambord, Tonic and Gravy  to ensure both wedding fairs well and truly live up to the hype. We hope to see you all there for a chin wag and a congratulatory hug.

What makes One Fine Day Wedding Fairs so special?

In a nutshell, One Fine Day is an opportunity for engaged couples to discover some of the industry’s best wedding vendors and gather inspiration for their own day of good times. It’s a refreshing alternative to the traditional bridal fair with beautiful florals and styling, live entertainment, a dedicated Groom Room, an exclusive fashion runway showcasing local and international designers and plenty of food and drink (cocktails included!).

And we’ll be setting up a Planning Hub where you can come take a load off in our lounge area and chat to us about your wedding planning journey. Bring us your curly questions and make some genuine progress on your decision making (not queries or curiosities on the wedding front are off-limits).

Five reasons you don’t want to miss out

1. Handpicked wedding vendors
The 100+ unique and creative vendors who showcase at OFD have all been handpicked for their level of style and service. In other words, the OFD team have done the leg work for you when it comes to narrowing down your dream wedding team. Plus it’s a great opportunity to meet them face-to-face, ask any burning questions you may have and perhaps even score an exclusive OFD discount. See all the current Melbourne vendors exhibiting here and Sydney vendors here.

2. Freebies
What living, breathing human doesn’t enjoy free things? At OFD, each guest receives a complimentary bag and cocktail on arrival. Purchase a VIP ticket to Melbourne and you’ll also nab yourself an awesome goodie bag and extra cocktails, as well as access to exclusive prizes.

3. It’s a fun day out
Grab your fiancé or round-up your wedding crew and head to OFD for a full day of dress-ups, drinks, lots of live entertainment and more. After what we can fairly assume has been a not-so-great few years for most engaged couples, this event is guaranteed to get you excited about your special day ahead and back into full wedding planning mode.

4. Runway show
If you really want to streamline a big part of your wedding planning (read: what you and your partner will wear) head to OFD for an exclusive runway show lovingly curated by Hello May. It runs three times per day (11am, 12:30pm and 2:00pm), so there’s no reason you can’t sit back and check out the latest wedding fashion trends.

5. Inspiration
Even if all you take away from this unique wedding fair is inspiration for how you’d like your wedding day to look and feel, it’s worth a trip. The people who organise and showcase at this event live and breath weddings and certainly know how to create a lasting impression. Think epic floral installations, mood lighting and just the right amount of fancy.
