What are you doing on April 1st or 2nd? If you have no plans then let me be the one to fill your diary because it’s Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza time and this is one wedding fair you are NOT going to want to miss!
Organised by two of my favourite alternative suppliers, Sassy of Assassynation Photography and Jo of The Couture Company, this is the wedding fair for you if the idea of a big traditional wedding brings you out in a cold sweat.
The show is taking place at The Bond in Birmingham and runs from 11am – 4pm on both days.
The premise for the show is simple: To encourage couples to shake off the shackles of wedding conformity and discover the very best of UK alternative wedding industry suppliers. If you want to find suppliers who offer a diverse and eclectic feast of all things wedding in a fun, friendly and relaxed environment, the Eclectic Wedding Extravaganza is the wedding show for you!
For the third season running, the Rock n Roll Bride Collection is coming to The National Wedding Show and today I want to tell you all about it!
For those of you that don’t know, last year we partnered with the UKs largest wedding fair to bring something altogether more alternative and eclectic into the mix. Not only is a visit to the show a rite of passage for any discerning bride-to-be, but now even alt babes can find ideas and suppliers that they’ll want to use for their wedding!
This season we’ll be joined in London by Crown and Glory, Nichola Ruby, Patchwork, Oh Snap UK, Poppy Dover, Gin Fizz Photography, Stargem Bridal, Twisted Glamour, Artcuts, Claire Louise Creates, Jigsaw Photography and Wishheart Tiara Design. In Birmingham we’ll be exhibiting alongside Lees Ice Dreams, Kevin Fern Photography, Crown and Glory, Artcuts and Jigsaw Photography and in Manchester you will be able to see Beetle Juice Cocktail Bar, Crown and Glory and Stella Photography!
This is just for starters too, with new exhibitors being added every day (do get in touch if you’re a wedding supplier and you’d like to join us) and over 500 exhibitors to see overall!
As you may have seen, two lucky Rock n Roll Bride readers recently won £2000 to spend at Bicester Village, and now it’s your chance to experience the village for yourself! From February 9th to 19th they are hosted a very special bridal event and it’s one you bargain hunters are not going to want to miss!
Home to more than 130 boutiques of leading brands, during this time the village will be bursting with exclusive bridal collections and offers, at the rock bottom prices that Bicester Village is famous for.
Not only will there be 20 newly arrived bridal dress styles at Oscar de la Renta, the boys will be able to receive a free shirt when they purchase a suit at Paul Smith. Anya Hindmarch will be bringing in some of the key pieces from her ‘I love you’ range as well as her ‘Hell yes’ collection, ideal for the more forthright bride. You’ll be able to find your dream dress at Temperley London, bridal shoes from Rupert Sanderson or signature styles at Sergio Rossi, which is offering a further 30% off the Village price! Award-winning botanical beauty brand Liz Earle will be available and there will even be special deals on luggage for the honeymoon, with Samsonite offering three for the price of two on selected pieces!
But this event isn’t just about bargains because you’ll be treated like superstars too. Not only will champagne be being served in the Oscar de la Renta boutique, but there is on-site tailoring available every Friday and Saturday and as free home delivery for all of your purchases!
