Bridal Expo Inspires Dreams

Planning a wedding can be a lot of work for brides and their families, and the London Bridal Expo might be just what they need.

“Engaged couples can expect to see exhibitors and vendors all the way across the board for anything they would need to plan their wedding. We have over 130 different exhibitors at the show. It encompasses everything from weddings gowns, formal wear, limos, cakes, catering, venues, photography, travel – pretty much everything you would need to plan a wedding all under one roof,” said Isabel Traher, event coordinator.

The London Bridal Expo 2016 takes place on both Jan. 9 and January 10 from 11a.m. until 5p.m. Tickets cost $12, tax included, and children under 12 are free.

“We're seeing more and more guys getting involved in the wedding planning process. A lot of girls like to bring their bridesmaids, their mom and mothers-in-law,” Traher said.

Each day there will be two fashion shows at 1p.m. and 3:30p.m. displaying hundreds of outfits, featuring weddings gowns, flower girl dresses, mother of the bride outfits, bridesmaids, formal wear and more.

However, according to Traher, the main benefit is getting inspired.

“It is a great place to get inspired. That’s one of the key components of the expo; you can go there for a lot of inspiration, to see some of the decorations, the outfits and inspiration for your theme and colours,” Traher said.

She said it's also a great way to save time and effort, too. Brides and their families have the opportunity to meet with multiple businesses and companies in one place.

“It's a great place where they can do some price shopping and pick up information and handouts on different wedding packages available. Sometimes just meeting and talking to the different vendors gives them the opportunity to see which businesses or companies they click with or develop a good rapport with that they can work with,” Traher said.

Other advantages include show promotions and packages green prom dresses offered by some vendors, special priority when booking appointments and free samples and tastings.

On top of all that, there are many freebies and prizes to be won. The first 1,000 brides will receive three free magazines including a copy of Wedding Bells, Today's Bride Magazine and Bridal Confidential.

“The brides that attend will get what we call Bridal Expos Passport to Prizes. They take the passport and get various signatures from vendors throughout the show and once the passport is filled in we do draws. There are dozens and dozens of prizes to be won,” Traher said.

For anyone attending Traher recommended they bring a few different things including a bag to carry all of the free items they will receive, a notebook and pen, and personalized labels with the bride and grooms names and contact information on it. Traher said that most vendors have occasion dresses draws and by bringing labels it will save them from having to write down their information over and over again.

She also recommends that anyone planning a wedding should create a personal email address for their wedding.

“Relax, enjoy the show and take your time. Take as much in as you can and collect as much information as you can because it's a great tool, for sure,” Traher said.
