1. Start your day at the Catwalk Show

There’s no better place to see a wide variety of beautiful wedding dresses than live on The Wedding Fairs’ catwalk. Grab a glass of bubbly and watch as models run the catwalk in beautiful gowns and elegant footwear, bridesmaids and occasion wear, often joined onstage by male models showcasing tailored suits. It’s the perfect way to start your day and get you inspired to start hunting. There are 4 catwalks a day so you won’t miss a thing!

2. Find your Wedding Dress


Having seen the dresses on the catwalk, take note of your favourites and head to the boutiques and designers to try them on. With a huge selection of dresses in addition to those you’ve just seen, dedicated changing areas, and experts who are always on hand to assist you in looking for your perfect dress, you’ll be well on your way to finding ‘the one’.

3. Take your time


At the North West Wedding Fair, there’s over 180 exhibitors to visit! This is why it’s important to take the time to enjoy the day and take it all in. Exhibitors at any fair are experts in their respective fields and are dedicated to making your day the absolute best it can be, so be sure to speak to them about your wedding, ask as many questions as you need and let them know all about what you’re looking for in your special day.

4. Have a great day out with your bridal party


A wedding fair isn’t just for brides and grooms. The entire bridal party can have a great day out. With cocktail crafting lessons, a gallery of inspiring wedding cakes, a central prosecco bar, an entertainment stage to help you to decide which wedding band is right for you, plus hourly makeup lessons from Benefit Cosmetics, there’s never a dull moment. Grab your family and friends, and get them involved in planning your big day!

5. Find a bargain


It’s the world’s worst kept secret that weddings can be pretty expensive. That’s why many exhibitors offer special prices, unique offers, free samples & demonstrations at the shows! Check out the show website before you go, so you won’t have to hunt for the best deals when you arrive!
