Brides The Show is back! This Autumn visit London’s inspiring wedding show, meet with suppliers, get crafty, swoon over wedding day style and have fun being a bride-to-be!
This Autumn sees the exciting return of the excellent Brides The Show taking place in Islington, London from Friday 30th September to Sunday 2nd October, and London Bride readers receive 25% off tickets with special promo code LB25!
Brides The Show is one of the best wedding shows there is and it’s the perfect chance whether you have just started your wedding planning or you need a bit of motivation mid-way through to have fun and be inspired. Having personally visited the shows the past few years, it’s a really inspiring event and of course a great chance to connect with suppliers, hear from experts and pick up lots of ideas for your own wedding. It’s one of those occasions to just truly enjoy being a bride and it’s definitely one to attend with either your fiancee, bridesmaids, mum or sister to make a day of it – indulge away I say!
INFO & DETAILS
FRIDAY 30TH SEPTEMBER TO SUNDAY 2ND OCTOBER 2016
BUSINESS DESIGN CENTRE, ISLINGTON, LONDON
RECEIVE 25% OFF BY ENTERING PROMO CODE: LB25
There will be over 100 businesses and suppliers to inspire you, from dress designers to cakes, florists, honeymoons, stationery and venues and this year there will be a VIP Lounge which is a fantastic chance to meet and hear from experts in the industry (stay tuned as yours truly will be there!) whilst enjoying a glass of bubbles in a relaxing lounge and getting entry for the catwalk.
Of course a bridal show wouldn’t be that without a bridal catwalk, definitely a highlight with it’s creative set and fashion forward styling showcasing some of the 18 bridal designers at the show put together by Brides magazine’s fashion director Bryony Toogood and this year’s theme is Circus “30’s travelling circus, mixed with the glamour of the era’s style icons, confident and sassy showgirls and silver screen legends. Theatrical and oh-so bridal’.
I definitely recommend booking either a VIP ticket or an entry ticket plus catwalk which you can do here, so you can make sure you’ve got seats and don’t forget to enter the promo code LB25 for 25% off your ticket price!
WHAT’S POPULAR IN 2016/17
I thought it would be fun to predict a few popular styles that I think we’ll be seeing more of for weddings into 2017, which may inspire you as you visit the show. The first is celestial, we’re all going starry eyed for all things astrological, starry, sparkly and there are so many lovely details using this theme that can be incorporated.
Taking inspiration from a few suppliers who will be at Brides The Show 2016, like this stunning Halfpenny London dress with star detail, the beautiful midnight blue sky inspired invitation from Papier and incredibly sparkly bridal shoes from Freya Rose I put together this style board which encompasses a sophisticated palette of midnight blue, with metallic gold and dusky pinks set with natural elements such as wood and foliage with a dash of magic and sparkle!
Visit Brides The Show for more information on the show’s exhibitors, features and to book tickets and I look forward to seeing some of you there!
