The Destination Weddings and Honeymoon and National Wedding Show; NEC Birmingham
Excited brides, keen suppliers and a whole section for Destination Weddings & Honeymoons, The National Wedding Show in the NEC Birmingham was buzzing. Crowds gathered to see the jaw-dropping dresses on the catwalk – definitely a must to see for inspiration. Whilst walking around amongst the masses there were certainly many stalls that grabbed our attention but we’ve put together a selection of some of them that really stuck in our minds.
Little Bus 1910 – Kids Entertainment
When planning your wedding having to consider how to keep the children entertained can be stressful. But when we saw this little bus it caught our attention – parents fear not! The little ones can climb aboard and be taken for short journeys around the venue. Great for photos too!
A fun alternative to a conventional cake – why not get a doughnut wall? With all the different variations of flavours and colours, it’s tempting not to take one of each!
We must admit we’ve never come across cards with transparent photos on and chances are guests probably haven’t either. It takes us back to looking at photo negatives, except these were colourful! Great idea for thank you cards or invites.
Piled high with a beautiful wax heart topper, a cheese cake certainly delivers on looks. Ideal for those with more of a savoury tooth and suited to you if you’re bored of sponge cake covered in royal icing. Oh and the cheese – delicious (especially with crackers and chutney)!
This impressive looking Jigsaw allows your guests to write their messages to the happy couple on each piece. Once put together, frame it, and display it to remember your guest’s experiences.
Destination Wedding & Honeymoons
Exotic destinations, photos of glorious sunshine and romantic visions of weddings abroad, the stalls here made us long for a holiday. Steel drums playing in the background set the scene for a wedding in the Bahamas and a photo gallery of stunning photos in Sicily was awe-inspiring. Even brides looking to get married in the UK were drawn to this section, lured by the romance and adventure of tying the knot abroad.
