Did you know that January is one of the peak times of the year for getting engaged!

If you’re newly engaged, then congratulations from us! You’ll almost certainly be looking for ideas to make your wedding day personal and special to you and one of the best ways of starting off is by attending wedding fairs and open days.

Wedding fairs are inspirational because you’ll find a variety of suppliers under one roof, however wedding open evenings are good for seeing a potential venue or your booked venue fully transformed and looking it’s best so you have an idea of what your dream day could look like.

Time to smell the roses

Want to look at wedding flowers but not really sure what’s going to be in season at the time of year you’re planning to marry or whether the flowers you have in mind will suit you? Well, at a wedding fair or open evening you’ll find a variety of florists or venue stylists to allow you to gather research on different designs of bouquets and centrepieces, look at photographs and ask all the questions you want directly from the experts.

Another great supplier to investigate at a wedding fair is a wedding photographer. You’ll be able to look at portfolios, check out the different photography styles which could be contemporary, reportage or traditional, discuss the photographer’s ideas and how he/ she can interpret yours. Asking for recommendations is always a good plan.

Try out accessories

Some things are hard to buy online, like shoes.  You need to see the quality, try them for size and comfort. A wedding fair is an ideal place to start looking at accessories because you can generally try on items like bridal shoes, tiaras, necklaces and shrugs to see how they suit you.

Wedding fairs are fun!

Going to a wedding fair is also a great day out when you’re planning your big day. Just don’t ask too many people to come along. Otherwise you’ll get too many opinions and just get confused. Having your mum, best friend, sister and/or chief bridesmaid is enough.

We’re going to be attending several wedding fairs this year and we’d love it if you came along and said hello to us. Here’s our list of fairs that we’ll have a presence at.

Visit our stand and introduce yourself and feel free to ask any wedding styling questions you may have – we’d love to help!
