The Catwalk shows (our favourite bit!) will be presenting the latest bridal, hair and accessory trends with a stunning showcase of dresses from top designers to high street names. As well as bridalwear, the catwalks feature up-to-the-minute looks for bridesmaids, grooms and mothers of the brides, making it a must-see experience for the entire wedding party.

Don’t forget to visit the Bridalwear Collection too – a wonderful showcase of the area’s best boutiques where you can choose from hundreds of dresses and have personal consultations and fittings with expert stylists. Don’t forget to ask about the special show offers if you buy on the day!

For further styling tips and inspiration, you can join the Official Back Stage Makeup Artist professionals from Lancome on their interactive stand and watch expert demonstrations in the Makeup Masterclass area.

Whatever your budget, your style, your location – whatever your dream wedding – The National Wedding Show has got it covered. As well as hosting out own features over on the show’s official blog, we’ll also be on site at the event, tweeting, facebooking and instagramming like mad (from a front row seat on their designer catwalk no less), trying to meet as many of you lovely brides to be as possible and also putting our judging hat on to award the “best in show” exhibitor prize.

We’ll see you there!

Grab A VIP Goody Bag! Bride & Groom Direct At The National Wedding Show

October 4th, 2011 | Julia Braime

.

So, this Saturday coming I’d scheduled into my bulging pink Filofax a cheeky – and much needed – day off.  No exhibiting, no freelance writing, no nothing (although I’ll be blogging as usual).  A day full of possibilities, of lie ins, of freedom…

.

So what do the fates go and do… oh yeah,

.

The National Wedding Show

.

So, this Saturday, on my day off, I’ll be jumping into my trusty Brides Up North mobile and high tailing it to Brummie central, to walk the floor, explore, greet old friends, meet new ones, hob nob with my Featured Suppliers, pop in to see the lovely Charlotte from Rock My Wedding on her stand, chat to the I Am Staggered boys on theirs, check out the trends, blag some freebies and generally immerse myself in wedding loveliness.  After two (wonderful but tiring) weekends spent exhibiting as a guest of The UK Wedding Shows myself, the pressure is off and the foraging for inspiration is ON!  Oh yes.  And…you can be rest assured that I’ll share my favourite findings with you lot too.  Roll on Saturday.  I’m almost looking forward to the three hour drive… I said almost.

Brides Up North Wedding Blog: Bride & Groom Direct

.

.

One lovely Brides Up North Featured Supplier that will be showing off what they can do is the fabulous Bride & Groom Direct, who make it easy to source and personalise your wedding stationery.  Click here to read an interview with them.

.

Bride & Groom Direct will be at Stand 13 in Hall 4, and will be bringing along some very special golden goody bags (I like the sound of those!) for Brides Up North readers only.  Tell them why you love my little wedding blog, and the booty is yours!  Don’t be shy.  You could be walking away with goodies like make-up, a disposable camera, chocolates, money off vouchers and some other surprises.

.

As if they are not spoiling us enough, Bride & Groom Direct are also launching a very special Wedding Treasure Hunt at The National Wedding Show – and the victor takes away £2,000 to spend on their dream wedding dress. 

.

Every Monday, for the next five weeks, Bride & Groom Direct will be hiding something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and something for you on different pages on their website. All you have to do is find the treasure.

.

The hunt begins on Monday, so get ready to rummage!
