Bridal fashion trends through time; how to get red carpet-ready hair and make-up; bridesmaid trends and the hottest honeymoon destinations… These are but a few of the subjects we will be discussing 'On The Sofa' at Brides  The Show.

Nazarin Montag


We're gathering the crème de la crème of the bridal business to share their words of wisdom during intimate conversations with the Brides team and brides-to-be.

Each chat will target different aspects of wedmin and offer participants the chance to put their questions and doubts to the experts themselves.


The live conversations will be taking place throughout the weekend and will be open to all those who want to attend. Seats will be limited, so we recommend to you take note of the conversations you want to listen to and arrive early.

See you there!
