Written by    Last updated: January 6, 2014

A wedding show is so much more than a great day out.  With swish champagne bars, designer catwalks and all the very latest inspiration, expert advice and amazing offers, it is the  place every bride-to-be should start her wedding planning. From the amazing National Wedding Show and UK Wedding Shows to the smaller local wedding fayres, here’s five fab reasons why you should go to a wedding show this year.

1 Have fun & find inspiration

It’s a full day out of fun and wedding inspiration to help you decide on every aspect from your colour scheme to your venue and decor. Bring your best friend, fiance or mum and make a whole day of it with lunch or drinks at the champagne bar at the large shows.

2 Catch the catwalk show & try on dresses

Take a seat, with champagne in hand, and admire the brand new collections of bridal gowns for 2014 as the models sashay down the  raised stage catwalk just feet away from you. Then have fun trying on dresses until you find ‘the one’.

3 Meet the wedding experts

A large wedding show is the one place you will find all the experts under one roof or you can meet your friendly local wedding suppliers at smaller fayres. Wedding experts with years of experience from planners to florists to dress designers will all be available to meet face-to-face. You might even see me there…

4 Get a make over and a manicure

Consult the top beauty experts for help with all your bridal beauty questions from problem skin to cosmetics colours to honeymoon hair removal. Get a make over while you’re there and you might even get to take away some fab freebies and testers too.

5  Shop in style & enjoy exclusives

Start shopping for your wedding and enjoy some exclusive show discounts. You could come out with just a free goody bag full of testers and ideas or actually make some real purchases and pencil-in some bookings.
