Brides The Show – Our Top Picks

We’ve had an exciting weekend of national wedding shows, as well as one of our own! Up first was Brides The Show, at The Design Centre in Islington. A brilliant show appealing to brides looking for high-end suppliers, or those wanting to catch up with the latest trends. Here is a little round-up of our top picks:


BRIDES Magazine Lookbook Live

There was also a lot of Autumnal inspiration on show, especially where dessert tables were concerned – we loved the deep tones with gold touches. The Brides Magazine Lookbooks Live were a great place to get inspired, bringing the pages of their magazine lookbooks to life with stunning colours and details.

With such a huge variety of unbelievable wedding cakes on show (not least this FULL SIZE wedding dress whopper or the incredible unicorn cake..) it was pretty hard to choose our favourites. Aside from the bigger show stoppers, we saw a lot of smaller sweetheart cakes – perfect for dessert tables or couples worried about their cake not being eaten!

We love good stationery here at Guides for Brides (search for suppliers here), but these glittery envelopes were a bit of a favourite! Because, well, you can never have too much glitter, especially on your wedding day. 


Last but by no means least comes the amazing catwalk show, featuring never before seen creations for next season. We saw lots of slim-fitting dresses with transparent panels and plenty of embroidery. Looks like backless dresses are back for 2017 too, with the added addition of a bridal cape.
