The Designer Vintage Bridal Show, October 2013 in Review

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!

The Designer Vintage Bridal Show in Review…


dvb dvb1The Designer Vintage Bridal Boutique refused to be beaten by the snow and despite the adverse conditions both the organisers and exhibitors soldiered on to hold one of their best shows yet. This time the boutique was to be held at the extravagant Birmingham Town Hall and was filled with lots of seriously cool vintage suppliers including Silver Sixpence in Her Shoe, Sarah Willard Couture, Zoe Lem, John Charlton Photography and Jolly Edition. Whats great about this show is that both the organisers and the exhibitors all have one thing in common – they wanted to inspire and advise brides-to-be who had a passion for a bygone era with a sense of quirky and originality.

We Visited The National Wedding Show, Birmingham!

It’s not an understatement when people say The National Wedding Show is a BIG show and we were honestly blown away by the amount of vendors and businesses at the ready to showcase their work & talent!

Our day began with a lovely press brunch (hello orange juice & fresh fruit!) where we were handed our goodie bag & a much needed map to navigate our way around the large arena!


The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza! It’s all about EWE!!

Yay! We’re going to be attending another wedding fair soon and you should too!

This isn’t your normal wedding fair though folks! Oh no! It’s far far different and we are très excited to attend!

Take a little look at what’s going to be going on at…

‘The Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza!’

Sunday 4th November 2012, Fazeley Studios, Birmingham

What happens when three slightly mad wedding suppliers come together? They hatch a crazy plan….that’s what!! When Sassy (Assassynation), Jo (Couture Company) and Vikki (Liliia) got nattering over a glass of wine (standard) they decided that they would put on a Wedding Extravaganza with a real mix of suppliers!

Here’s what Sassy, Jo & Vikki have to say about this awesome filled day!

“We want to put on an amazing wedding extravaganza (aka fair) that would be exciting for both the suppliers and couples alike, so we hatched a plan “A-team” style (Hannibal Smith would be proud).
