I went to the National Wedding Show this past weekend in London, so if you’re off to the UK bee meetup in Birmingham, definitely go!
Definitely consider going on Friday if you are still hunting for a dress. FH and I were talking to a lot of vendors, and they say a lot of women buy their dress at the show because it’s one stop shopping. However, Saturdays is the worst day for it as the show is absolutely rammed. If you can’t go Friday, then the vendors say Sunday is better, but you might miss some sample sales…
I really enjoyed the How to Look Good Show (although is the audience member really a plant?) and all the photographers. I wish there were more cake tastings (not worth all the prettiness if it doesn’t taste good!) and more stuff for men (FH was a little bored). If you like sweets, then you’re going to love all the free swag around. Prescriptives was there giving makeovers as well, but you have to go early and get an appointment.
Oh, and the Celebrations Bar is not inclusive with the ticket. Champagne I believe was 2.50 GBP. We lucked out because there was a mobile bar giving out samples of their signature drinks! =)
