The Scottish Wedding Show at The SECC, Glasgow This Weekend
Date: February 16, 2009 • Author: Emily • Filed Under: Industry News & Planning & Shopping & Shows & Unique Ideas

If you are in, or near, Glasgow this weekend I highly recommend you take the time to visit the Scottish Wedding Show. The show runs from 21st to 22nd February at the SECC.

Highlights of the weekend show will include:

♥ Catwalk shows showcasing a dazzling array of wedding dresses, from top designers who create gowns for the stars to high street fashion brands, covering all budgets and tastes.

♥ Outfits to kit out your Groom, Mother of the Bride, Bridesmaids and other attendants.

♥ Free make up sessions.

♥ Free wine and champagne tasting.

As well as this, over 300 of Scotland's leading wedding suppliers will be showcasing everything you need for your perfect wedding day including wedding gowns, accessories, cakes, stationery, entertainment, cosmetics, shoes, tiaras, hats, cars, favors, gift lists, caterers, venues - basically everything you need!!

Remember too that wedding shows are a great place to bag yourself a bargain as many wedding vendors exhibiting will offer discounts on their services if you book with them there and then.

For more information on exhibitors, take a look here.

I can thoroughly recommend this wedding show as I attended the last one in September 2008 at the SECC. It was really enjoyable, professionally laid out, with staff and wedding vendors who were cheerful and offered plenty of helpful advice to the couples attending.

You can book your tickets here
.
I’m going along myself at the weekend to have a look around and keep my eyes peeled for some unique ideas and wedding bargains which I can share with you all.

Hopefully I’ll see you there!

78 Free Wedding Tips And Book

As you plan your wedding you will receive advice from just about everyone. Friends and family have a million and one tips to pass on, in fact here at Wedaholic I have been offering tips galore. For example tips on wedding djs, getting guests to mingle, giving a great speech and tipping wedding suppliers to name just a few!

To give you a flavour of what to expect I have copied the types of wedding tips you will receive below:

Sample Tip 1 :

At the reception hall, fill baskets in the bathroom with miniature hand lotions, breath mints, hair sprays, and hair gels for emergency touch-ups. You may also want to put out a basket with a few inexpensive pairs of pantyhose and
some clear nail polish.

"Thanks for all the tips..and for making them genuinely "free".... the tips I found most helpful of your's were about etiquette ... it helps to remind brides of other people's feelings when they are getting caught up in their own! And that idea about giving framed pictures to the parents is one I will definately do! Blessings!" - Suzanne, US

Sample Tip 2 :

Don’t forget grandparents and other relatives who may feel “left out” during the preparations before the wedding. Take a camera along when you are shopping for your dress or looking at flowers.

Send pictures with a quick note that says, “Here’s me rubbing my feet after trying on shoes that were murder!” Or “Aunt Joan, the flowers were beautiful, but I wish you could have been there.”

"Just wanted to thank you for all of the wonderful tips! I enjoy reading them every week!! I will use you're advice throughout the planning of my wedding and on the big day! Thanks again" - Dan

Sample Tip 3 :

For bridesmaids' dresses, consider separates, especially if you have attendants whose sizes and shapes vary widely. Skip the bridal stores and check out department stores for evening skirts and separate tops that are made of luxurious fabrics and trimmed with beading or embroidered details.

"Dear Emily your tips have been very helpful to me in planning for my wedding thank you for all of your help, looking forward to receiving other tips from you. Best Regards" - Cornelia, US

The Modern Alternative To A Wedding Guest Book
Date: October 29, 2006 • Author: Emily • Filed Under: Funny & Guests & Photography & Reviews & Shows & Speeches & Unique Ideas & Videography

i-vox, the leading brand of video diary rooms, were at Earls Court a few weeks ago collecting feedback from visitors to the National Wedding Show. It got a great response and visitors and exhibitors thought it was an innovative and fun way of capturing opinion.

The format of having a room to film yourself in rather than a feedback form is one that appealed to the show organisors so they can analyze what visitors really thought of the show, and not be confined to the boundaries of written questions.

Watch some samples here. If you like what you see you can pop around to the next two shows in the Spring, they are Birmingham 16-18 Feb 2007 and London 23 - 25 Feb 2007.

How does this relate to weddings?

Well i-vox also offer a service where by they will set up your very own video diary room at your wedding. So instead of the usual guest book, guests can visit the room anytime they want (as it is constantly recording) to say a few words about how much they are enjoying the wedding!

A great alternative to the traditional wedding guest book. Let me know what you think of this unique idea by leaving a comment below.

Woburn Abbey Wedding Fair At The Sculpture Gallery
Date: October 11, 2006 • Author: Emily • Filed Under: Attire & Dresses & Industry News & Shows & Venues

Whilst at the National Wedding Show I had the pleasure of meeting a number of exhibitors from Woburn in Bedfordshire. They were there to promote why Woburn is the perfect place to get married. I was quick to learn that there are a number of wonderful venues for a bride and groom to consider - from the elegance of the Sculpture Gallery to the unique setting of the Safari Lodge or the historic Inn at Woburn. It really was a fantastic opportunity to meet a team of people who offer everything you would need to make your day run smoothly and effortlessly, from the wedding cakes to wedding cars, photographers to fashion.

In particular it was lovely to speak to Chris Southgate from the Questor Woburn Bridal Boutique (01525 290658) and Hollie from The Wedding Workshop (01525 403233). I highly recommend you take a look at their websites and give them a call if you don't live too far away.

Luckily though they will both be attending the Woburn Abbey Wedding Fair in January, the details are as follows:

The Autumn National Wedding Show 2006 Review
Date: October 06, 2006 • Author: Emily • Filed Under: Attire & Dresses & Hair & Beauty & Industry News & Reviews & Shows & Themes & Unique Ideas

Hopefully many of you were able to visit the National Wedding Show at Earls Court last week. I thoroughly enjoyed my time on the Friday and if you did happen to miss it I thoroughly recommend the next one on 13th to 15th October at the Birmingham NEC. You can book your tickets here.

The bridal collections displayed on the catwalk were certainly mesmerising with a breathtaking choice of bridalwear, groomswear and outfits for the wedding party. The catwalk included a dazzling selection of wedding dresses, from top designers who create gowns for celebrity clientele to high street fashion brands, covering all budgets and tastes.

Dresses in the first catwalk scene, entitled Cinderella's Footprints, opened the show with plenty of glamour from designers Chandrika Thomas, Raishma Couture and Marion Thomas whose dresses showed off strong lines and structure to flatter the bride's curves.

It was true to say a plethora of colour dominated the catwalk with eye-catching lilac groomswear from Marc Wallace. There were plenty of dresses in different shades of blues as well as pastel pink and peach seen in the collections displayed by It Fits Bridal, Wizard of Gos, Fiorisimo Bridal & Couture and a stunning purple dress from Mamfi Brides.

Catwalk exhibitor, Sarah Arnett, designer for Simultane, who created dresses for leading British model Erin O'Connor, wowed visitors during scene three with her chic gowns, which evoked a feeling of couture style and Grecian swathing with empire lines.

Berketex Bride presented the OK! Exclusives collection designed by David Emanuel showcasing simple, traditional yet spectacular wedding dresses including a flirtatious shorter length dress. In complete contrast, brides wore black in scene four, with designers such as Marion Thomas, Rivilino Bride and Malcolm Hall showing off their most unique and unusual creations.

For bridesmaids dress ideas, everyone was inspired by the adorable and colourful frocks worn by the catwalk show's littlest models as Nicki Macfarlane Bridesmaids and Nene.D displayed their exquisite designs in a range of vibrant, sumptuous silks and fabrics.

It wasn't just all about brides, as there were plenty of ideas for grooms - Moss Bros Hire, Anthony Formalwear and Couture Pour Homme provided inspiration for groomswear and pageboy outfits.

Asian inspiration prevailed in the finale with a large variety of richly embroidered dresses from designers Merchants of India (Izzy Izaiah) and Seasons Asian Designer Wear. The Asian theme was completed with the ethnic groomswear available from Debenhams.

All in all it was a fantastic show and I look forward to the next one!

Future show dates for 2007: 16-18 Feb NEC Birmingham, 23-25 Feb Olympia London.

See you there!

Date: October 03, 2006 • Author: Emily • Filed Under: Gifts & Shopping & Shows

It was fun meeting some of the girls from Wrapit.co.uk over the weekend. I learnt that Wrapit really is a refreshing approach to wedding lists and a service I will definitely review in the near future (especially as the founder Pepita Diamond studied at St Andrews just down the road from me!)

Anyway if you are in London on the 26th October, I recommend you take full advantage of a free event they are holding at their West End store.

Over a drink (or two!), you can wander around their stylist showroom and chat to their carefully selected wedding experts. There will also be an opportunity to chat with a Wrapit consultant about the fabulous service they offer, as well as exclusive offers, fabulous prizes and a goodie bag.

Date: Thursday 26th October
Time: 6.00- 8.30pm
Venue: 89 Great Titchfield Street W1W 6RN (Nearest tubes stations: Oxford Circus, Warren Street and Great Portland Street)

If you would like to attend this free event please email london@wrapit.co.uk with your name and the name of the person you would like to bring along. Wrapit will confirm your place by email within a few days

Check Out The Catwalk Couture Chic At The Autumn National Wedding Shows
Date: September 20, 2006 • Author: Emily • Filed Under: Attire & Bridal Party & Dresses & Industry News & Shopping & Shows & Themes & Unique Ideas

I have been reliably informed that the Autumn/Winter 2006 bridal collection appearing on the catwalk at this year’s National Wedding Shows in London and Birmingham will reflect the ‘wow’ factor normally associated with the catwalks of Milan, Paris, New York and London. The dresses will be glamorous with lines and structure that accentuate the bride’s curves. I have also learnt that colour is also a strong feature for this Autumn and all the shades of blues can be seen as well as pastel pink, peach and green.

Susi Rogol, Editor of Bridal Buyer comments:

“The choice is as breathtaking as the gowns themselves. Sumptuous Marie-Antoinette multi-layered skirts topped by tightly sculpted bodices (Sophia Coppola’s movie will make this the look); 50s-style flirty-skirt shorties with pretty princess necklines; slinky body-skimmers in soft, fluid fabrics worn with tiny lacey bolero tops, gossamer-fine shrugs, or short tailored jacket with high collars. Taffeta is the big-news fabric – crunched, scrunched, swathed and ruched to accentuate curves. Look out for colour – softly, softly pinks, blues, greens and rich topaz golds. There couldn’t be a better time to be a bride.”

The overall theme of the catwalk show is The Four Seasons. Brides, grooms and mother of the bride will find inspiration for all types of wedding.

Spring: Enchanted Garden with fauna and flora inspired decoration and Dressing Up Box with vintage inspired gowns.

Summer: Beach Bride will include a selection of chiffons, silks and natural fibres in neutral colours while Tropical Island will be the same in bold hot colours.

Autumn: Magic Carpet will showcase ethnic influences bridalwear as well as menswear followed by Medieval Heroes and Heroines in their rich and opulent fabrics and styles.

Winter: Snow Palace featuring cloaks and capes.

The catwalk shows will include a dazzling selection of wedding dresses, from top designers who create gowns for the stars to high street fashion brands, covering all budgets and tastes.

I can hardly wait!

If you are in or near London next week I highly recommend you take the time to visit the show. The dates are: London Earls Court Sept 29-1 Oct / Birmingham NEC Oct 13-15 Oct.

Having spent some time in Chicago I often find myself surfing the Net intrigued to know what is going on in a city I dearly love.

She reports:

"Stylists from Nicole Miller will do a fashion presentation featuring designs from their bridal collection. Some of our other vendors include Franco Lanzi Photography, Highland Park Country Club, Belden-Stratford Hotel and so many more. "

Sounds a thoroughly professional event and if I wasn't so far away I would definitely like to attend.
