Why We Can’t Wait for the National Wedding Show!

We are so excited to see what the National Wedding Show has in store this year! It’s always a feats for the eyes to see so many great wedding suppliers under one roof and it’s actually the UK’s biggest wedding show! I loved seeing beautiful stationery designs first hand, touching the paper stock and appreciating the details as in real life is so different to swooning over so many examples online. The same with elegant wedding cakes and of course bridal fashion! But it’s also great to actually meet and speak to suppliers themselves too – especially when it comes to planners, photographers and venues who offer such personal services and can share what they can do for your wedding and chat about what you’re looking for.

My favourite part of the show has to be the Bridal Fashion – and all of it! The weddings dresses, the wedding shoes, the beautiful accessories and jewellery, again experiencing it in the flesh and often finding things that you hadn’t previously even considered. Let’s not forget the Catwalk where they showcase the latest designer trends and options for Grooms, Bridesmaids and Mother of the Bride too. This is such a great place to see entire looks put together and gauge what your style might be if you’re still not sure, and they have plenty of ideas to inspire you! Some of the Bridal wear to hit the catwalk this year includes one of my favourites, Riki Dalal with their super stylish collection of exquisitely detailed wedding dresses for fashion forward brides. Another is the famous David’s Bridal which boasts an amazing collection of wedding dress designers such as Jenny Packham, Vera Wang and Zac Posen!

We’re super excited to see the selection of interactive activities and educational things which will be happening at the National Wedding Shows too! The Inspiration Lab is new this season with workshops for Brides + Grooms to get involved with, perfect for those couples who want to add personal touches to their wedding day! At the Olympia + Birmingham shows there will be The Style Stage where you can hear from the experts about all things health, beauty and fashion! The Pros will show you how to select the most flattering wedding gowns for your body shape as well as tips for hairstyles and makeup! You can find our more about the whole range of events here at their website too.
