Creating the perfect wedding can be a difficult, stressful and time consuming task.
Weddings can cost around £23,000 and have hundreds of catered for guests attending a full day affair. There are plenty of things to arrange: outfits, invitations, venues, decorations, catering and entertainment. The average wedding is comparable to a full scale event that would be arranged by a team of events professionals. This is where the services of a wedding planner would be useful, but as they are a rare breed in the UK, many brides and grooms take on this daunting job for themselves.
With so many details, and such a vast array of options, where do you start? Linda Williams, MD at The UK Wedding Shows, knows how difficult this task can be. She has been organising wedding shows since 1985 and in the process has seen firsthand how overwhelming it can be to make all of the wedding arrangements and find the products and services that you need.
She decided to create shows that would have everything in one place, from entertainment to dresses with the aim to make it easier for brides to create their special day.
The UK Wedding Shows (theukweddingshows.co.uk) now organise exhibitions throughout the UK and cater for 1000’s of brides. The shows include exhibitors from all over the wedding industry and their award winning fashion shows feature the latest in stunning bridal gown designs, men’s formal hire and ladies occasion wear, with major high street names alongside individual designers. The UK Wedding Shows also make a conscious decision to employ models who do not all conform to the stereotype, believing that every bride can look amazing on her wedding day.
Now entering its sixth year at this venue, The UK Wedding Shows will be exhibiting in the Tattersall Suite on the 1st and 2nd October 2011. Newcastle Racecourse has over 120 years of heritage and the Branding House Grade II listed building is at the heart of High Gosforth Park set in 800 acres. This venue attracts exhibitors from across the North East and is popular with couples who can meet with sixty companies attending the show.
“The UK Wedding Shows really do know how to put on a good show, we are amazed at how well organised and attended they are, both by excellent quality exhibiters and Brides and Grooms who are looking for the best!! We have great faith how the UK Wedding Shows promote their exhibitions, we speak to so many members of the public who are excited to be there and to see who's exhibiting. Keep up the good work, and we'll see you at the Newcastle Racecourse Show on the 1st and 2nd of October.”
