Two words for your engaged friends: Wedding Crashers

Wedding Crashers, the only wedding fair in NYC that spans two entire venues, returns to Gowanus, Brooklyn on March 17, 2019 with even more tastings, live music, and inspiration to plan an upstate or New York City wedding.

At this one-stop wedding planning festival produced by Brooklyn Based, couples can find their every wedding need from photographers to venues, all while sipping bubbly, slurping oysters, and enjoying live music and DJs.

Located at both The Green Building and across the street at 501 Union, in Gowanus, Brooklyn, it is the only fair in NYC so interactive and extensive, it takes place in two venues. Attending our fair, filled with good food and drink, original touches such as custom gowns, aromatherapy bars and unique photobooths, is like crashing the kinds of weddings we inspire.
