29 ways to have your dream indie wedding in Detroit

Don’t deny it, we know you have a Pinterest wedding board. While filling it with DIY ideas from the web (that let's be honest, you'll probably never do), finding a local artist to turn your pins into a reality is even better. That's why we teamed up with Rock Sugar, an indie wedding event aimed at connecting couples with crafters and makers in the area, to showcase some of the city's top indie wedding vendors. From save the dates to floral arrangements, there's plenty of inspiration here to see, and the best part is, you can meet these makers this weekend at the Rock Sugar Event. 

To learn the story behind Rock Sugar, check this out.

Rock Sugar is from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, May 8 at Rust Belt Market, 22801 Woodward Ave. in Ferndale. The event (and inspiration) is totally free.

Often the first taste your guests will get of your wedding will be the Save the Date. Impress them with custom designs and quality paper. The options are truly endless and let's be honest, could you make this?

You can’t have a legit wedding without any witnesses, just as you can’t have a reception without any guests. Neither witnesses nor guests will show up without an invitation, and when they look this good, you shouldn't have any trouble getting those RSVPs returned. Well, except for that one cousin that just can't get her shit together.
