It's all go at the Charlotte Balbier HQ as we get ready for the hottest date in any brides diary, The Modern Bride Show at Excel London ( The show promise's to be fun, glamorous, stylish, modern and contemporary.... well, we just had to be part of it! The Charlotte Balbier Boutique style stand will be showcasing over 30 Charlotte Balbier designs from the new 2011 collections, the Sabella Collection and the English Tea Party Collection, along with some of my favorites from the Boutique and Summer of Love Collections.

As well as all the gowns, I will be tempting brides-to-be onto my stand with yummy cupcakes from, who will produce some very delicious and on-brand cupcakes for my brides to enjoy as well as lots of Pink Bon Bons and marshmallows! The stand will be in keeping with the Modern Bride brand of sleek and stylish black, and of course I am adding my signature pink to the stand also... it's going to look just fabulous.

Brides-to-be will also be treated to amazing catwalk shows throughout the day; styled by Brides magazine's very own Fashion Director Bryony Toogood. Bryony is the best in the business and her fashion shoots are always beautiful, imaginative, stylish and fun so the catwalk is going to be a not-to-be-missed highlight of the day.... not only do you get to see the gowns come to life as they sashay down the aisle, you will also be given a catwalk guide to write all your notes in and keep it as your 'Little White Book' after the show.

Modern Bride is not all about stunning bridal fashion. Brides to be will be able to visit the exclusively selected "best in the business" of flowers, cakes, honeymoons, venues, photographers, stationery, favors and entertainment... wow what a line up!

I am going to be meeting and greeting all my brides at my Boutique stand with my glamorous assistant Nicola, and my right-hand woman and wonderful Mummy, designer Amanda Wyatt on stand 96 which is located by the Champagne bar (purely a coincidence honest!!). I will be on hand to chat with my brides about what styles from my collections would work for them and their wedding, and help them style their big day.

Anyway must dash now as so much to do and only 4 days until show time..... See you all there!!!

Love and kisses,

Charlotte xxxx
