As the summer whizzes by at lightening speed, and Autumn is getting close by the day, wedding fair season looms, starting off in September with the big one. Yes it’s The National Wedding Show!
So are you going to go to any wedding Fairs this year?
I feel like attending a wedding fair after you’re engaged is like a rite of passage. They’re great fun to attend and they do give you ideas on what suppliers to consider for your wedding day.
There is usually a scheduled fashion show so you can also see the latest array of bridal couture on offer and become up to date on the latest wedding trends and bridal brands.
They’re not expensive to attend so what’s not to love. I would recommend gathering your girls and make a fun packed day of it.
I went when I was casting Celebrity Wedding Planner a few years ago and I also ended up with epic amounts of galaxy freebies. Just saying… get yourself there.
But on a serious note, they really do help to give you ideas and there are often bargains to be had. Many of the wedding show suppliers will offer exclusive discounts and advise on how to book so even if you’re just going for a look around, you could leave with far more useful information than you bargained for.
This years show features a flower market, great for finding those perfect bridal flowers, there is a style stage where you can get top tips on how to choose your perfect wedding dress, a champagne bar and wedding catwalk displaying an array of great wedding designers.
For a little more money you can treat yourself and go VIP! VIP tickets will get you a goody bag, reserved seating at The Catwalk, fast track entry to the show and a complimentary glass of bubbly! If you’re attending for a special occasion or even just for a day out, if you want to make a day of it, the VIP experience could just make your day.
