Once again, we don’t do things by halves here at Brides Up North!  We are filling the whole hotel – that’s five huge function areas – and it’s going to be spectacular!

If there’s one wedding fair to attend this year, this is it.  This isn’t your typical wedding fair though, it’s a knock-your-socks-off super showcase!  This is officially the largest free entry bridal event in the North East area and should most definitely be one for your diaries.

Whether you are shopping for the final details or have no idea where to start, I can promise you the very best choice of the best bridal experts in the region.  Everything you can think of for planning your big day will be represented and there’ll be on the day discounts too.

Come and see our two professional bridal catwalks (this season we are getting ready to party!) meet the Ramside wedding planners, pose in our photo booths, taste our scrumptious wedding cakes, kit out your man and bridesmaids,  play dress up with gorgeous gowns and accessories, get lost in our beautiful floral displays, get the hair and make up sorted, source your stationery, find a top photographer and tick off all those last essential details.  You name it, we can sort it.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!  Weather woes and post-Christmas depression, who cares!  It’s nearly time for another action packed season of Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Exhibitions to begin…

Our inboxes have been full to burst over the last few days with VIP registrations as well as exhibitor requests.  You lot don’t hang around, do you?!  It’s almost as if you were sleeping off those New Year hangovers and then wham… wedding planning mode resumes.  I love it, and if this is any indication of how things are going to go, this season is going to be a whole lot of fun! 

Sooo… we are looking ahead to a full season of Brides Up North bridal events – across three regions in Spring 2014 – at painstakingly selected partner venues packed with the very best of each area’s bridal supplier talents. What these people and places can add to YOUR big day is unbelievable, and it’s all there and waiting for you.

Is anybody else already dating cheques and forms for 2013?  No?  Maybe just me then!  Christmas isn’t even properly upon us and I’m already going mad looking ahead to the New Year, and a very exciting season of Brides Up North events especially for you brides to be coming right up!

.

After a total sell out and record attendances (hurrah!) for all our ten shows in 2012, my little team here at Brides Up North HQ and I are expanding to bring the bridal lovely to as many of you as we possibly can in 2013.  Isn’t that nice?!

.

We’ve added an extra two dates to our North East schedule, a couple more across our already amazing Yorkshire line-up and we are set to visit the North West and bonny Scotland in 2013 too.  It’s going to be an epic road trip, packed to the max with wedding inspiration from the regions’ very finest bridal suppliers at some seriously swish wedding venues.  Just the way we like it. 

.

More on the full schedule later, but for now, I wanted to let you know about our first two huge wedding exhibitions in the North East this Spring. These are set to be the biggest FREE ENTRY (yes, that’s right, we’re not whacking on a price tag for our readers!) bridal events in the North East with the cream of the region’s wedding vendors – over 80 per show (closer to 100…).  Each show will have two professional fashion catwalks and will be buzzing with exhibits for you to browse and book.  The atmosphere at these events is always fantastic, so be sure to note down the following dates in your diaries NOW:

It’s Here!!! THIS SUNDAY: The LARGEST FREE ENTRY BRIDAL SHOW IN THE NORTH EAST Has Arrived!!!

September 8th, 2012 | Julia Braime

.

Ramside Hall Hotel Wedding Fair by UK Wedding Blog Brides Up North

.

.

I can’t believe it’s finally here!  Months of plans and preparations have paid off as I look forward to our headline event this season – the MASSIVE Brides Up North Super Showcase Grand Wedding Exhibition at Ramside Hall Hotel on Sunday 9th September 2012: that’s this weekend!  Eeep!

.

We are throwing open the whole venue (two massive ballrooms, a grand marquee and some outdoor exhibits – perfect on a sunny weekend like this one) to welcome OVER 100 of the region’s finest wedding suppliers and all you lovely brides-to-be and your families.

.

I’ve worked day and night (with some assistance from my small yet perfectly formed team of helpers!) to bring this event together and make it bigger and better even than our last show this Spring -  which was a fabulous day packed to the rafters with wedding inspiration and over 1,000 visitors!  What can I say?  I love a challenge!

.

An exhibitor space sell out, the event is now recognised as the largest free bridal event in the North East, and if that’s not worth popping along to, I don’t know what is!

.

I’m thrilled to say that it looks like all the hard work has been worth it as all the elements have come together to make one amazing day.  The web is abuzz with excitement, and the VIP pre-registrations are flooding in.  I just can’t wait to see you all now! 

.

To get your FREE VIP Bride-to-Be goody bag packed with fabulous treats and exclusive on the day discounts worth ££hundreds of pounds (seriously these are too good to miss!) and speedy entry make sure to pre-register pronto, while stocks last.  One lucky lady will also take home a pamper hamper courtesy of our amazing friends at Clarins!

.

To register for a free VIP Bride-To-Be Goody Bag fill in your details below, marking “Ramside Hall” in the subject line and quoting “VIP”. You can collect your VIP Bride-To-Be Goody Bag upon entry to the Super Showcase on Sunday 9th September 2012.
