llo and welcome to June! I can’t believe that we’re almost half way through the year already but my goodness, it’s flying by! Now I know I might seem a little eager, telling you about an event that’s taking place in October when we’ve not even hit the height of summer but when the event is the fabulous Brides The Show, I think it’s worth getting that in your diary early, particularly when we’ve got a wonderful 2 for 1 ticket offer for you too.
So, read on and find out more about this year’s Brides The Show that will be taking place at the Business Design Centre, Islington, London 2-4 October 2015…
Brides The Show brings the iconic Brides magazine to life in a truly brilliant way (take a look at my report from last year’s show to see what I mean!) and this year’s edition promises to be even better. From dresses to diamonds, flowers to champagne, you can expect the very best from over 130 amazing wedding suppliers.
What I loved was that everyone exhibiting was talking to brides, passing on tips and ideas and discussing trends – this isthe event for you if you just love weddings!
One of the undoubted highlights of the day are the amazing catwalk shows and Brides Fashion Editor, Bryony Toogood, will again be styling these to bridal perfection. Designers showing this autumn include some Love My Dress favourites such as Halfpenny London, Catherine Deane, Charlie Brear and Amanda Wakeley among others. If you’d like to see these gowns in gorgeous close-up detail then why not treat yourself to a VIP Gold ticket and enjoy the show from your front row seat? You’ll also receive fast track entry to the show; a glass of delicious Nyetimber English Sparkling wine and a luxury goodie bag.
Whilst we’re talking about fashion, please let me tell you about the Exclusive Jenny Packham Catwalk Show that’s taking place at 6.30pm on Friday 2nd October. This is a unique opportunity to see Jenny’s stunning New York Bridal Week catwalk show including a recreation of her gorgeous ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ set. I have to say that I cannot wait for this!
If you’re looking for planning inspiration then Brides The Show is simply unmissable. The genuinely lovelyBruce Russell, London’s most sought after wedding planner, will again be inviting you to join him on a freeBridal Promenade. After welcoming you with a glass of bubbles, Bruce will take you on a tour of the show and answer any questions you might have about planning your wedding – what a fantastic opportunity to learn from the best in the business!
For more of the latest from the wedding world, join some of the industry’s most creative names On The Sofa, visit The Imagination Room for a series of hands-on workshops or take your seat at The Sommelier’s Table for a free, fun and informative wine tasting session with the experts – yum!
Whilst I’m mentioning delicious treats, this year’s Brides The Show sees the introduction of The Bridal Brunch. After taking your VIP seat for the 10.30am catwalk show on Sunday 4th October, enjoy a luxury brunch and bubbles with Bruce Russell and a luxury goodie bag. What a perfect treat for mothers and daughters, brides and bridesmaids.
And there’s still more – from the Wedding Planners’ Lounge and Lookbook Live, where the Brides lifestyle editors style a range of wedding reception looks, to make-up masterclasses and bridal makeovers with Bobbi Brown and Duck & Dry.
I can’t wait to see you there – this year’s Brides The Show is going to be spectacular.
