The UK's BIGGEST wedding exhibition, The National Wedding Show is back this Autumn with lots of exciting new features for modern couples planning to tie the knot, in style.
Historically, TNWS has been the 'go to' show for future brides and grooms seeking inspiration from traditional wedding suppliers.... the big white dress, the morning suit, vintage car hire...
... Well not anymore!
Recognising the need to evolve with modern wedding trends, The National Wedding Show has opened its arms to an array of quirky and independent suppliers that can help bring even the most traditional weddings, right up to date.
For many excited brides-to-be, this is the Christmas of the wedding world - a chance to shop until you drop, in the company of your best friends whilst stopping off for ample prosecco breaks along the way.
The famous wedding show has outgrown itself year on year and now hosts 4 separate exhibitions spanning London, Birmingham and Manchester and boasting over 300 suppliers.
One of the brand new exciting features for Autumn 2017 is the Inspiration Lab where couples have the opportunity to get involved with a range of creative workshops that allow them to add a personal touch to their big day... perfect for anyone having a DIY wedding on a tight budget.
The workshops cover everything from modern calligraphy techniques to paper-cutting stationery design.
How 'bout learning to make your own flower crowns for you and your 'maids?
If vintage is your thing then take a stroll through the brand new Vintage Wedding Village for fresh, retro inspiration.
The Hitched Wedding Platform at the Birmingham exhibition on 29th September - 1st October is on hand once more to help couples with any wedding planning concerns.
Shropshire Petals grow natural, biodegradable petal confetti that can be colour-coordinated especially for you.
The petals come in cute push pops, confetti balloons or little cones and pouches for scattering, the good old-fashioned way!
As always, the highlight is undoubtedly the famous catwalk show.
The show brings together a collection of the amazing suppliers that are exhibiting and aims to wow and inspire both brides and grooms and the entire wedding party when it comes to 'big day' styling.
Modern or traditional, no matter what you have in mind, you will find something for everyone at TNWS.
You can see a full list of suppliers exhibiting at each of the shows here.
The next exhibition commences on 29th September - 1st October in Birmingham and the final 2 will take place on 21st-22nd October in London, and the 28th-29th October in Manchester.
