THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO THE NATIONAL WEDDING SHOW

If you are heading to The National Wedding Show this weekend, well my dear friends you are in luck, because today’s post is the ultimate guide to making the most of your experience. I have to admit our first time at the show I was totally taken aback by just how big it is and I could easily see how brides would find it all a little bit overwhelming. I find myself getting caught in the crowds and end up coming away with nothing much useful, which really does defeat the point of attending in the first place. After all bridal fairs are one of the best places to learn all about the myriad of suppliers that can help you create your dream wedding and can even open your mind to more options than you originally thought possible.

Recently I’ve adopted a more organised mindset and tend to find I can use this to approach almost anything in my life even for attending events. I find it useful to write down a list of 2-3 things I definitely plan on doing then, 4-5 things to do if I have enough time. The National Wedding Show grows bigger every year! There is so much to see and do, between the multitude of catwalk shows, masterclasses and workshops the show has to offer and don’t forget the suppliers stalls and wedding dresses. It’s no surprise the show is on the list for almost every ‘bride to be’! So, if your planning a trip either this weekend or on any of the other dates below, I hope you find this guide useful.

One of my favourite things about the weddings we share here, is learning all about how the couple first met. Today’s love story sounds like something from a romance novel. Sarah was working at a bakery, whilst Alasdair was homeless and looking for work. Sarah hired him on the spot and so their brilliant love story began. Here is Sarah to tell you more about the gorgeous wedding day…

Designer Vintage Bridal Show 2013 Review Bespoke Bride Vintage Wedding-7

Happy Monday morning you lovely lot! As you may have seen from our various Facebook/Instagram/Twitter posts last week we were at The Designer Vintage Bridal Show the Saturday before last and what a day we had!! It all started at 5am…ok 5:15am….ok well we were supposed to get up then but we actually dragged ourselves out of our warm beds at 5:30am to get ready and load the car up for our drive to Birmingham!

Once we had arrived and set up our super colourful stall it was time for us to check out all of the amazing exhibitors in the room! Emily held down the fort and off I went with my camera to snap away at the beautiful stands that all the vendors had worked so hard on! My first stop was ‘Oh My Honey‘ and what a sweetheart she was!! If you’re looking for a 1950’s style dress then Oh My Honey is for you! Her dresses were so cute and Emily fell in love with the polka dot wedding dress that was sitting pretty next to her stand! Opposite, was potentially one of the prettiest stands we had ever seen! Who was it I hear you ask? Well, it was Vintage Glamour Days who’s name completely lived up to the decor of the stand! It was SO glamorous and vintage! Cheryl and James made such a great team on the day and made the view from our stand a very beautiful one!
