Brides the Show is back! Once again, the UK's number one best-selling bridal magazine is coming to life in 2018 at Kensington Olympia on the 21st - 23rd September. Get the dates in your diary and expect a weekend packed full of glorious wedding inspiration.
Now in its seventh season, you'll gain direct access to the entire Brides team - the very people who style our fashion stories, create our lavish reception shoots, design our glossy covers and work on every bespoke element that goes into the kind of stylish wedding design we're known for.
Come and chat to us about all your planning dilemmas: from the venue to the honeymoon we're always on hand to give advice. And don't forget to book a seat at one of our beautifully styled bridal catwalk shows…
This year, Brides Fashion Director Bryony Toogood is creating a magical 'Dreamland' space where fairytale, fantasy and fashion go hand-in-hand. Expect ethereal décor as standard: fantastical floristry to delicate laser-cut paper work, oversized blossom clouds and towering trees, balloons and butterflies, ribbons, rainbows, fairies and fields of flowers.
Oh, and the gowns to match of course! Be it a floor-sweeping number, a picture-perfect princess style, simple chic shift or form fitting fishtail with all the exquisite fabrics and details you can imagine.
Afterwards why not start crafting your way to a stunning day in one of our expert sessions or join a DIY décor workshop? We've always got show-stopping, unique content for you to see. Past events have included a couture exhibition with world-renowned designer Giles Deacon, plus the chance to meet famous photographers - in 2017, Matt Porteous, Pippa Middleton's wedding photographer, made an exclusive appearance to meet readers. And at our very first show, we curated a one-of-kind Iconic Wedding Dress exhibition where legendary gowns were flown in from celebrities around the world.
For 2018, we're working on bringing you some seriously exciting ideas, so get ready to be wowed. And remember, we carefully select our exhibitors and partners to bring you the very best in the business, so you're in expert hands every step of the way. All you have to do is book those tickets!
