Wedding Shows – Are they worth attending?

Hello, todays blog I am writing about a Wedding Show I recently attended as a supplier!

I thought this might be a good subject to write about to give those brides to be who haven’t yet been to a wedding show or wedding fayre, an idea of what to expect but also the reasons why it is definitely worth going to them.

As a Bride myself I went to quite a few wedding fayre’s throughout the planning of my wedding.
A few I went with my husband and a some with my Sister and Mum.
Little did I know a few years down the line I would be on the other side of the table talking to perspective bridal clients!!

If you’ve not considered going to a wedding show they are a great opportunity to meet suppliers whatever stage of the wedding planning process you are at. You find that some suppliers/people you just ‘click’ with more than others, and sometimes perhaps this cannot all be revealed by browsing a business’ website or Instagram account…

As your wedding day is such an important day you want every piece to fit together and run smoothly so the last thing you want is to find you’ve picked someone who on paper (or on the internet) fitted the bill but in reality on the day wasn’t quite what you’d hoped for.

A good wedding show will have a variety of suppliers for all aspects of your wedding! Photographers, videographers, florists, cake makers, car hire… and of course makeup artists!

Back to the wedding show I attended a few weeks back…. it was a great day! Luckily I had my Sister there to help me out and speak to our lovely brides and it was a good job too!
Majority of the afternoon we were both engaged in conversations with Brides and even at times had brides waiting to speak to us!

I had fantastic conversations with lots of Brides and answered lots of questions including questions about my kit, brands/products I use, how i manage my time, how far I will travel and specific skin care questions and concerns from brides about allergies and sensitivities to name a few.

I also had really interesting conversations with Brides about wanting to look like YOU on your wedding day. I believe that on your wedding day brides want to look and feel the most beautiful version of themselves! We want the groom to recognise their bride!!

I certainly don’t have one bridal look that ‘fits all’. It is YOUR wedding day and together we will create your perfect bridal makeup!

It was great to meet so many lovely brides at Hinckley Island Hotel.

If you missed that show keep your eyes peeled for further dates in the next few months of other shows I am attending… it would be fantastic to meet you and have a chat about how I can be part of your special day.

Thanks for reading
