Bridal shows are great; free cake samples, a chance to test-run photo booths, vendors everywhere fawning over you, free cake samples, bridal fashion shows, contests -- and did we mention free cake samples? But if you’re rocking a slightly alternative lifestyle, a.k.a. you’re covered in tattoos and are a diehard LCD Soundsystem fan, traditional bridal shows may not have the options you’re looking for. Just because tattoos are your thing, you may still be the kind of bride who prefers a more inspired and hands-on approach to your nuptials. Enter Art Hive Indie Bride 2014, and indie craft show for those creative brides who want to add a flare of uniqueness to their big day. The show features 40 vendors, a DJ, swag bags, giveaways, complimentary champagne and mimosas (for over 21, non childbrides only), and free food tastings. The show is brought to you by Art Hive Magazine, an arts and entertainment-friendly publication of the Palm Beaches that features everyone from local to international artists. They encourage couples of all backgrounds and orientations to attend. That means gays, straights, trans, and whatever Andy Dick is, are all welcome. Just make sure you preregister at the website. Art Hive Indie Bride 2014 will be taking place on January 26, from 12 to 5 p.m. at the Palm Beach Gardens Marriott located at 4000 RCA Boulevard in Palm Beach Gardens. It’s a free event so tell all your bridal buddies about it. Visit or call 845-893-4853.
