Well would’ya look at that – this weekend Brides Up North doesn’t have a bridal event planned for you lot! It’s a very rare weekend off for me and the Brides Up North team and I’ll be spending it celebrating my best friend’s wedding. Yes, on my days off: I go to weddings. It figures, doesn’t it?
As I perform my bridesmaid duties for bride to be Victoria (Hello Vic!) – and party up a storm on the dance floor – I didn’t want to leave you high and dry, so I thought I’d pop by this afternoon to tell you about where you can get your wedding planning kicks this weekend.
Brides Up North Featured Supplier and friends at Dandy Events are hosting another of their fabulous weekend showcase events at their premises on Scotswood Road in Newcastle. Join Denise and her team of wedding design consultants to see how they can make your styling dreams come true. Take it from me, I’m not talking about chair covers here – these guys are seriously good.
There’s free bucks fizz, canapés, fantastic discounts and exclusive decor ideas to be had, plus one lucky bride will dinner for two at The Biscuit Factory.
Be there – 10am till 5pm, both Saturday and Sunday, this weekend. No appointment necessary.
