A letter from Emma about: The National Wedding Show


Dear Reader,

On Sunday I was lucky enough to me given a VIP ticket to The National Wedding Show. Although I am no blushing bride I had a lovely day exploring the show which full was of so many lovely ideas not just for weddings but for events too. So, todays blog post is a collection of pictures from the day:



It may seem a little strange that someone with no intent of getting married any time soon spent the day at a wedding show... but it was so much fun! I guess that itself shows how good it was. Also, with my ticket orignianlly costing £40 I thought I should make the most of it. Part of the VIP ticket which I received includes champagne on arrival and make-up goodies (shown in the picture above), and also front row seats to the wedding catwalk show.
One wedding dress theme which I really wanted to mention was the Art Deco,  1920's Great Gatsby like wedding gowns designed by  Ellie Sanderson, they were just beautiful. I loved the loose fitting dresses I thought they were so timeless and made the brides look very elegant and sophisticated. Unfortunately I did not manage to get a clear picture of the dresses on the catwalk,  however I would highly recommend them if you are a bride-to-be looking for something a bit different but also elegant for your big day.
The National Wedding Show really is a fantastic place to get ideas and tips about weddings. One of my personal favourites was the picture booth with props! I defiantly want one of those at my wedding reception, so much fun!

It was also a wedding show like this that my sisters wedding dress would have been originally worn at. I wrote about the dress in  my Wedding Dress blog post, which is also another great place to find your dream dress if you are getting married. 

Yours, 

Emma Dilemma

P.S. Quote of the day- "If I get married, I want to be very married."
