Bride: The Wedding Show at Ascot Racecourse on 14-15 March has everything a real wedding should have – fantastic clothes, music and dancing, beautiful flowers … all the elements to make a perfect day of fun and inspiration.
Brides, their partners and families will be spoilt for choice with The Pavilion at Ascot Racecourse packed with more than 70 bridal industry professionals from bridal boutiques to florists, photographers to cake-makers, all on hand to offer the advice you need to create your dream day locally. It is the biggest professional wedding show in Berkshire and this year exhibitors include John Lewis, De Vere Venues, Laithwaite’s Wine, Olive Marquee’s and Tom French Jewellers.
The 2014 event was praised by exhibitors and visitors alike. Exhibitor Lorraine Langridge of Brides Visited said: “There is a great feel good factor to the show, we do a lot of wedding shows and this is by far the most entertaining”, and bride Mandy Pack described it as “the best wedding show I have been to.”
The famous catwalk which is staged three times daily is acknowledged as the most inspirational and entertaining in the business. These spectacularly choreographed fashion shows which run at 11.30am, 1.15pm and 3pm both days provides a showcase for the best couture in an inspirational and fun environment. Bride Editorial Director Joanne Goodwin says: “The catwalk show is worth the ticket price alone. It’s a mixture of divine gowns, great music, brilliant choreography and some very cheeky male dancers. It puts a smile on everyone’s face from flower girls to grooms to grandmothers of the bride… and especially the bride herself.” Expect to see beautiful gowns from The Wedding Warehouse and Confetti Bridal, latest fashions for the mother of the bride plus menswear from Slaters and Black Tie Hire, to name just a few.
There will be live music and entertainment performed over the weekend and the first 100 brides through the doors each day will receive a goody bag packed full of wedding favours, treats and samples to take home. On the Sunday, which is Mother’s Day, the first 20 mums through the door get a free glass of Champagne!
Brides and grooms can relax with a drink at the stylish Champagne Bar or café as they plan their celebration while flicking through their free copy of the brand new Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire Bride magazine packed with beautiful photography, fascinating features, advice from experts and brides and inspirational real weddings from the region.
