A visit to this weekend’s (January 16 and 17) Eco Wedding & Lifestyle Show (ecoweddingshow.com) at the Toronto Congress Centre (650 Dixon) will help you waste not on the day itself. Vendors from florists to photographers, from fashion designers to caterers and every other nuptial resource have been screened to guarantee that their services are sustainable. Admission is $15, which also gets you into Canada’s Wedding Expo (canadasweddingexpo.ca) in the hall next door.
Bauble-shop your way out of the winter blahs with two new jewellery arrivals at Shopgirls (1342 Queen West, 416-534-7467, shopgirls.ca). Morgan Mallett’s Design + Conquer collection (designandconquerjewellery.com) is plastic fantastic, with oversized earrings and necklaces in out-of-this-world colours. Melissa Clemente’s (melissaclementedesigns.com) line is more organic but equally modern, incorporating brass, textiles and wood in unexpected ways.
