After being offline in a sense for most of the day, I was shocked to see the news of reBar’s abrupt closing, leaving many couples stranded without a venue for their weddings this weekend and throughout the year. Gothamist broke the news today, citing that employees were blindsided as well with a brief text saying that the space was closed and bankrupt, and for employee’s to not enter the premises.
I don’t know much about the situation other than what I’ve read, but its heartbreaking to think that all these couples and employees are left scrambling (the employees were supposed to be paid today!). reBar had just started advertising with Brooklyn Bride, but in light of the circumstances, I’ll be pulling their ad and vendor listing. So many venues and vendors in the area are pulling together to aid the couples left in a lurch, so in an effort to help, I’ll be listing as many as I can find here. If you’re a vendor I missed, leave a comment below with your info.

There’s also an IndieGogo campaign started to help cover the money lost in deposits to reBar that will be distributed to couples. To contribute, head over here. There’s also a funding site setup to help the employees of reBar who are left unpaid. To contribute to that, head over here.

Funny how time goes by when you least expect it. Today marks 7 years of Brooklyn Bride, and when looking back to my first post, I realized I had started it after 7 months of being engaged. I never thought anyone other than my mother and close friends would ever see it, but 7 years later, its offered up so many new friends and opportunities that I can’t imagine life without it. Thanks for sticking around all these years, and stay tuned for a new look and exciting news in the coming weeks!

Last year The Atlantic Avenue BID hosted their first ever wedding expo, and this year they are continuing on its success with a second time around on Sunday, April 13th from 12-5pm. This time, all the vendors will be housed at Deity Event Space, and they’ve invited some talent from outside Atlantic Ave. If any of you have walked the main drag, you know about all the great shops, restaurants and businesses that abound, and may have even noticed how many of them are wedding related, so this will be your chance to see them all under one roof. With over 20 vendors ranging from registries to cakes, hair salons to parfumers, you’ll have your wedding figured out in a snap. There will also be a fashion show covering dresses for the bride & bridesmaids, and also mens formal wear. There will also be plenty of food, drink, and music, so get your tickets quick! All information on the vendors participating can be found on their website.

This Sunday, March 9 from 12-3pm, Wedding Crashers is back and better than ever! The quintessential Brooklyn wedding fair has gotten so great, they’re now twice as nice with 2 venues, the Green Building and SHOW ROOM Gowanus (which is right next door). You’ll find even more bridal & grooms fashion than in previous years, in addition to the always great food vendors, photographers, invitation designers, planners and more. VIP tickets get early access to the event as well as a fabulous goody bag & Prym rum cocktail. After the event, the party continues with the after party at 501 Union across the street with music, dancing, and a chance to win a night’s stay at the Nu Hotel.
Tickets are available here, but if you RSVP on their Facebook event page, you’ll be entered for a chance to win a pair of tickets! Winner will be notified on Thursday. Check out the main Wedding Crashers page for a full list of vendors participating as well.
This is one of my favorite wedding events to go to, so don’t miss out!
