I stopped in at the first Make My Day Market at 400 W. Rich on Saturday, September 7, per All Together Ohio event planner Marti Babcock’s invitation, and enjoyed every minute of it. Basically, it’s a market that provides future brides/grooms, wedding planners, and/or event planners the opportunity to meet some amazing, local vendors that could help make their special day a success. They even offered workshops on how to create your own party coasters, drink stirrers, calligraphy, and garland.
Let me say, the artists/designers/business owners featured below are a very talented bunch of Ohioans. I didn’t stay for the entire event, so I was not able to hear all of the music, however, I can recommend Buckles + Boots (http://bucklesandbootsmusic.com). I’m hoping for another Make My Day soon!
(Note: I loved all the vendors at the market but chose a few of my faves to feature. For a full listing of vendors, please visit the Make My Day website).
