Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
We all love a wedding – the cake, the booze and the dancing mums. For most people, their wedding is the biggest, best party they’ll ever plan in their lives – and the average wedding day takes 13-18 months to plan.
That’s a lot of hours of screen-scrolling and researching. But at The National Wedding Show at Olympia London on February 16-18, newly engaged Londoners can try, buy and book all the big stuff they need – plus the finer details – in one day.
There’ll be more than 300 wedding experts, planners and brands in one place – including Ted Baker, Confetti.co.uk, Debenhams, David’s Bridal, Lavenders of London, Coo Jewellers and Ascot Cars.
Brides can find their dream dresses and kit out their bridesmaids, husbands-to-be can hang out in The Groom’s Room, a laid-back area full of quintessential British brands, and couples can start getting inspiration for their honeymoons. It’s basically a great day out for the entire wedding party.
There’ll be another London show on April 14-15 at ExCel, plus two more dates in other UK cities: February 23-25 at the NEC Birmingham, March 10-11 at Manchester Event City, in case you’re planning your wedding outside London (hey, it’s on average £7,000 cheaper!).
The Manchester event is the biggest and best-loved in the North-West, with local suppliers from Manchester, Cheshire and Lancashire, while the Birmingham event will include suppliers from the surrounding area plus a TUI travel lounge and plenty of inspiration for destination weddings.
There’ll be more than 800 wedding specialists and suppliers across all four events. Book your tickets to the UK’s biggest and best-loved wedding shows at nationalweddingshow.co.uk.
