Posted on 1st November 2017

Planning a Christmas proposal or looking for the perfect stocking filler? Bride: The Wedding Show at Knebworth Barns from January 6-7 is the event for you.

Filled with festivity and celebration, Christmas is the perfect time of year to pop the question and for those looking to make a proposal, Bride: The Wedding Show at Knebworth Barns from January 6-7 is the ideal event to follow up on your wedding plans. Tickets to the event, which welcomed more than 1,500 visitors in 2017, are also an ideal stocking filler for those planning their big day in 2018 and beyond.

The show promises an even bigger and better itinerary than previous years, with more than 80 suppliers confirmed – covering all bases from floristry to photography and décor to dresses. Show-exclusive deals, discounts and competitions will further entice visitors, including the opportunity to win a luxury honeymoon to Mexico courtesy of Thomas Cook and AMResorts.

Expert advice and guidance from the show’s exhibitors will be invaluable for couples to piece together their perfect day.

Angela Handley, owner and designer at stationery company, Popsycool Designs, says: “I exhibited last year for the first time and couldn’t wait to come back. It’s a lively and exciting show and a great day out for bridal couples, their friends and families. I love meeting new clients and talking everything ‘weddings’ and it enables bridal couples to see and feel the quality of my wedding stationery.”

There will be goody bags for the first 100 brides through the door on each day of the event, containing confetti from Shropshire Petals and further products and samples from the show’s suppliers. Visitors can pick up a complimentary copy of Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire & Bedfordshire Bride magazine to continue their wedding planning from home and an official showguide so that they are able to re-connect with the featured wedding businesses after the show.

The catwalk show is a must-see, running at three times during each day (11.30am, 1.15pm and 3pm) and preceded by show-stopping performances from Mr H Productions. Occasionwear from John Lewis will be on display, in addition to suits from Moss Hire, Ann Bridal and Chimney Formal Menswear, and bridalwear from Hinxworth Bridal and Ann Bridal, amongst others. Brides-to-be are even invited to try on dresses throughout the weekend at Bride: The Wedding Boutique, a private area which offers the same intimacy and space of a bridal boutique.

A café and champagne bar will provide areas to relax with refreshments, while OriGINal Fizz will be displaying its new gin bar outside the venue and handing out samples to all attendees. Tipis4Hire will also be exhibiting at the entrance, hosting a spectacular tipi set-up complete with lighting, seating and fire pit.

Lucy Harris from Ruislip visited the show as a bride-to-be in 2017 with her sister and fellow bride-to-be, Jessica Harris, and mum, Lorraine Harris. She said: “It’s been so good. The catwalk performances were very good and the outfits were all lovely. I didn’t expect it to be so big. I came to get ideas for dresses, cakes and flowers. The catwalk was such a good production; it was very uplifting.”
