Everyone knows that one of the most important things about a wedding (read: the most important thing about a wedding) is what the bride is wearing. So it is only natural that The Dress be a bride-to-be's biggest concern when planning the big day.

So to help, we've enlisted our Fashion Director (she responsible for the fashion fabulousness of the Brides pages) Bryony Toogood and twenty of the best bridal designers to inspire your bridal look with two exciting and distinct catwalk presentations at Brides The Show.


"We wanted to consider the needs of every bride, whether city chic, country church or barefoot on a beach," explains Bryony. "The epitome of romance, our shows will inspire, enchant and captivate you - whatever your wedding style."

Wedding gowns from Amanda Wakeley, Phillipa Lepley, Sassi Holford, Stephanie Allin, Ian Stuart, Ritva Westenius, Louise Selby, Naomi Neoh, Emma Hunt, Miss Bush Bridal Wear,Jesús Peiró, Quintana Couture, Emma Tindley Couture, The State of Grace, Anita Massarella, Angelina Colarusso, Katya Katya Shehurina, Caroline Castigliano, Mirror Mirror Couture, Lara Hannah, Tobi Hannah, David's Bridal andStewart Parvinwill shimmy their way down the catwalk. As well as bridesmaid's dresses byLittle Bevan, Twobirds, Maids to Measure and something extra cute for your little ones from Nicki Macfarlane.


Two distinct catwalk shows will take place at alternating times throughout the day.

The first, 'Portrait of a Lady', explores this seasons take on traditional with new classics-sharply cut shapes and on-trend styling fit for a princess.

The second show will take on a more bohemian style with the theme of the 'Garden Party.' Here barefoot brides in soft, ethereal mood will take a departure from the prim with their sheer blousy puffed sleeves, camisole-style tops and delicate floral details.

All catwalk shows are free to attend with seats allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
