Visit Confetti at the National Wedding Show in Manchester, Birmingham and London to be inspired for your wedding! There’s nothing like a wedding show to get the creativity flowing, and we’re going to be there every step of the way.
Wedding shows make for a fantastic day out—for the bride, the bride and groom, the bride and her bridesmaids, or even just the fashion-savvy lover of style. They’re packed full of ideas and inspiration for wedding dresses, venues, honeymoon destinations, cakes, and more. Suppliers flock to show off their services and offer expert tips…and this year Confetti is amongst them!
You’ll see more of us than ever in Manchester and Birmingham, where we’re introducing our fantastic Pop Up Shop. At stand E100 in Manchester Central (on the 7th – 8th February), and stand B31 in NEC Birmingham (on the 27th February – 1st March), you can see a choice selection of our shop products in person for the first time in years!
We’ve said time and time again how beautiful our wedding products are, and now you can view them up close and experience it for yourself. See the wonderful quality firsthand instead of online, and any questions—ask one of our on-hand staff!
