We are super excited to be attending the extremely cool, visually 'out of this world' (and not to mention an informative one-stop-shop) at the One Fine Day wedding fair this coming September.
But before you say 'Oh not another bridal fair' we need you to know that this is far from the usual stock standard bridal show - oh no, this is something else!
One Fine Day turns the traditional bridal fair on its head, and instead brings together the most creative and most innovative boutique stores under the one roof. It's a showcase of all that is lovely in the world of weddings - and it means brides, bridal parties, shoppers and lovers of fine wares can all come together on One Fine Day!
Gone are the days of traipsing from one end of town to the other, trying to communicate your ideas of 'exactly the right shade of pom pom!' On one fine day in September, anyone who is looking to create a memorable event or find a creative outlet will be surrounded by those that know best.
And cue Jumbled! We will be taking the trip to Sydney to show off our wares and to mingle with many of our loyal city customers. It's our chance to pay them a visit! But most importantly it will be the launching pad for our Wedding Registry that is now helping happy couples in sourcing memorable gifts for their guests to purchase.
So if you are in the market for getting hitched - or you just love the thought of being surrounded by beautiful inspiration - then come and say hello. It's the perfect opportunity to plan a trip to Sydney and we inspired at this one stop shop for all things wedding related.
Here are the fast facts:
When: Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th September 2013. Doors open at 10am and Close at 4pm
Where: Sun Studios, 42 Maddox Street, Alexandria, 2015, NSW.
Travel: Parking is limited, on street parking is all day on the weekends but it is suggested that you catch public transport. (Sun Studios is approximately a 15min walk from Green Square and St Peters train stations.)

Many of you may know Pip recently travelled to Paris in search of some inspiration and for a well deserved rest! We all agree she works super hard to find products from all over the globe and it is one of the reasons Jumbled looks so happy and fun. We were all dying to hear about her trip and so we sat down and had a chat about the things she saw and loved, food she indulged in and European trends she would like to see more of in Australia.
Tell us a little bit about your itinerary - what would your day in Paris look like?
My husband and I flew to Paris for a 10 day escape. Orange was having a really cold snap and Paris was warm, summery and the perfect place to re-energise and seek out new trends. We would sleep in every day as nothing opens until around 11am. We'd grab a cafe au lait and croissant before beginning our marathon along the french streets. I don't mind lines, so if I saw a line outside a shop or into a boulangerie I would join it just to see what was inside. Around lunch, whichever district we were in I'd ask the locals where the best baguette was located and I'd make a bee-line for that place! We checked out local shops, window displays, gardens and did a lot of people watching! Of an evening i'd drag my poor husband (which he always ended up loving!) to different bars I'd read about in a book or mag for cocktails and champers and we'd settle into the Parisian scenery.
Do you have a favourite store in Paris you go to when you're in need of a blast of inspiration?
YES! The shop is called Merci and it is all kinds of fabulousness. Merci is an amazing concept store with three levels of loveliness. It has concept art, kitchen goodies, furniture, lighting, a bookshop cafe and really cool clothes. It is elegant, creative, fun and colourful. All things we aspire to be in Jumbled. I went there every day for one reason or another!
Did you find any secret places you can share with us?
They have just opened a pizza joint near Merci called Grazie and it is AMAZING - I had the best gin and tonic of my life which had a sprig of rosemary, some fresh basil leaves and Mediterranean sea spray... It was the bomb. Totally life changing.
What was your impression of the interior styling in Paris? Were there any particular items you fell in love with?
I think it is such a global market out there, so African inspired chandeliers, Indian textiles and interesting pops of colour were big in Paris. It was great to see we are definitely on par with what is going on. There is a big focus on feature lighting and big chandeliers, interesting bulbs and colourful pendants were everywhere. It is amazing how a good light can transform a space! In Merci they had the most amazing beaded chandelier, but very similar to our chandelier available in store and online. Restaurants were styled with rustic tables, colourful restored chairs and lots of mix and match dinnerware. Everywhere felt homely and welcoming and interesting. I did see some fabulous brightly coloured bed linen. Bright blue fitted sheets with orange flat sheets and pink pillowcases! So fun.
The other big trend was realistic wallpaper! I saw wallpaper that seriously looked like pressed metal, weathered bricks and filed wood. It was really cool - I could hardly tell it was wallpaper! They had the pressed metal wallpaper on the roof of Grazie restaurant and it was so realistic.
Many of us know you are one seriosuly stylish lady with your fashion store Iglou stocking some really cool international brands, what is your opinion of Paris street stlye?
Everyone looks so stylish. I would sit on the metro and stare at people and really disect their outfit. Imagine very simple - skinny jeans, ballet flats, printed tee's and a leather jacket. Minimal makeup, natural hair colour and simple accessories. There were little pops of neon in sneakers, a scarf, or beaded bracelets. It all looks so effortless...
We are often found drooling over the amazing cookbooks in store - were there any stand out meals during your trip?
Anything from the local boulangerie! Pain aux raisons, pain au chocolat, croissant au beurre, little mini raspberry tarts, brioche, baguette with local jam and lots of cheese. Oh, I did have an amazing falafal in the Marais Latin Quarter!
O.K... lastly Pip, what was the most wonderful thing you bought whilst on your sojourn in Paris?
My new yellow pony skin sneakers from Merci. Ridiculously comfortable! They don't go with anything but I love them.
