Most of you will be heading to The Designer Wedding Show for the fabulous designer gowns, but we all know it takes a lot more than a gorgeous dress to make the occasion spectacular - like finding a top-class venue for starters. Luckily, there's so much more than fashion at The Designer Wedding Show. This stylish event plays host to London's brightest venue stars including Claridge's, The Dorchester, Andaz, The Lanesborough and The Berkeley, and some of the UK's best rural properties including Babington House, Leeds Castle, Hengrave Hall and Sudeley Castle. And if you need an extra nod of approval, most of these rank among the Top 100 Venues in the March/April 2010 issue of Brides.

The Designer Wedding Show takes place from February 12-14 at Battersea Park London; tickets are £16 in advance or £18 on the door and all fashion shows, including a complimentary programme featuring all the gowns shown on the catwalk, are included in the ticket price.
