Planning a Brooklyn wedding? Then don't miss Brooklyn Based's "Wedding Crashers" fair on Saturday, January 9 from 10:30 am to 5 pm, at the Bell House (149 7th Street) in Gowanus.
You'll get the chance to taste food from some of the borough's top caterers (including Naturally Delicious, Frankies Spuntino, and Red Table Catering), sample sweets (courtesy of One Girl Cookies and Nine Cakes), sip Belgian-style ales from Brooklyn Brewery, and listen to local bands and DJs, like Michael Arenella and his Dreamland Orchestra. Expert speakers will also be in the house, delving into topics like DIY ceremonies, invitation essentials, catering on a budget, and planning an awesome honeymoon. Tickets ($20-$40) are on sale now.
