Hey, remember when we told y'all about the Lovesick Expo in Philadelphia and then ya'll were like, "Boo, I wish this awesome alternative wedding expo was going to be in my city." Well get this: if your city happens to be New York, you're in luck! In 2012, Lovesick Expo is returning with a two-city tour. Next January, brides and grooms in Philadelphia, PA and Brooklyn, New York will have an opportunity to experience an oft-unseen side of wedding planning, featuring awesome alternative wedding professionals, who won't scoff at your offbeat ideas and/or try to eat your brains in attempt to turn you into one of their zombie hordes. How do we know that Lovesick is legit and totally not one of those lame WIC fluff-infused wedding expos? Because we sent one of our own to investigate — our lovely intern Becca went to see if it really, somehow bridged the gap between "awesome" and "wedding expo." Not only did she live to tell the tale, but she had an absolute BLAST! Here's all the whens, wheres, hows to put on your calendars now: BROOKLYN LOVESICK EXPO Saturday, January 7, 2012 The Music Hall of Williamsburg 66 North 6th Street, Brooklyn, NY 11211 11am-3pm PHILADELPHIA LOVESICK EXPO Sunday, January 8, 2012 World Café Live 3025 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA 19104 11am-3pm Psst: a launch party is being held to celebrate the announcement of the two-city event tonight (April 1, 2011) at Sumo Lounge in Philly.
