As the Official Blogger for the Manchester show we were super-excited to welcome our readers to the ultimate day out for wedding inspiration, where they could buy and book everything they needed to make all of their wedding dreams come true at Manchester Central this October.

With more than 200 wedding specialists, from bridal boutiques and florists to photographers and cake designers, this is always the place to gain first-class creative ideas, tips and advice from the area’s crème de la crème of wedding suppliers.

As one of our very favourite events of the year, we knew that you were in for a real treat!

The Catwalk shows (our favourite bit!) presented 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 featured up-to-the-minute looks for bridesmaids, grooms and mothers of the brides, making the shows a must-see experience for the entire wedding party (and bridal bloggers too)!

Ideas in place, our readers could then visit a wonderful showcase of the area’s best boutiques where they chose from hundreds of dresses and had personal consultations and fittings with expert stylists too. There were even special show offers for the lucky ladies who found their dream dress on the day (and there were lots of you that did)!

For further styling tips and inspiration, we all had a chance to get hands-on in the Inspiration Lab, with a selection of workshops throughout the weekend to learn hints and tips for the big day. And we also popped in to see Magpie Weddings as they hosted The Eclectic Boutique, full of creative ideas with a quirky edge and a hint of vintage.

If that wasn’t enough, we finished off with a make up masterclass at the Lancôme stage, a live audition for wedding band with the area’s very best acts playing live (there was dancing, I tell you!) and we shared in the celebratory mood by raising a glass of fizz at The Champagne Bar.
