    I've already bought tickets but apparently the only vendors that will be there are those selling wedding dresses and bridesmaid dresses which is a bit useless for me as I have already ordered those.
  • writergal - did u make it? I went with my H2B ummmmm it was okay not overly excited about slightly a bit unorganised.

    Sad to think that about our own. Prefered the wedding show at olympia got few more ideas

  • Oh yeah the guy playing the sax was real gud enjoyed that. Had a word might be having him for the champagne reception

    SJP --- Yes I made it, What a massive disappointment. I got my sisters and friends to go along and my mum as well. I really wanted to support the show and organisers but it was not great and I don't want to be overly critical BUT:

    -- Why did they bother handing out Mahogany plastic bags with NOTHING in it but leaflets at the door on the way in?

    -- I was really surprised at the small number of vendors, surely there are more people catering for brides of colour?

    -- The fashion show was entertaining but I really cringed when the male models started bopping down the catwalk in their formal suits, call me old fashioned but it's supposed to be a formal attire for a wedding not bopping down the street to the bus stop. It was such a stereotyped image and the varying styles of 'bops' was unintentionally hilarious.

    The chocolate fountain and the sax player were the highlights but I really didn't need to pay 10 pounds for that.

    The whole thing really lacked polish and I just can't believe it's the 12th year. I got zero ideas, apart from maybe how not to do my wedding!
  • Lol

    Well maybe they will do better nxt year! - But i'll not be going

    Disappointed, but not surprised there was no discernable improvement this year....
