Here comes the bride

From a bevy of bridal bou­tiques to the sen­sa­tional chore­ographed cat­walk show, brides-to-be and their gor­geous gowns will take cen­tre stage at the au­tumn edi­tion of Bride: The Wed­ding Show at West­point Arena in Ex­eter from 13-14 Oc­to­ber

Somerset Life - - BRIDE: THE WEDDING SHOW -

Every bride’s quest for her wed­ding dress is dif­fer­ent. From those that find the per­fect gown at the first bridal ap­point­ment to the ladies who only dis­cover their dream dress af­ter months of de­spair, each bride’s jour­ney to find­ing ‘the one’ has a ten­dancy to be un­pre­dictable.

Stream­lin­ing the search, Bride: The Wed­ding Show of­fers the per­fect place to hunt for wed­ding dresses and buy gowns on the day. The two-day show will

‘The at­mos­phere is al­ways buzzing’

take place at West­point Arena in Ex­eter from 13-14 Oc­to­ber and will fea­ture a host of lo­cal wed­ding sup­pli­ers in­clud­ing sev­eral bridal bou­tiques, such as Taun­ton-based busi­nesses Aming­ford Bridal and Sassi Hol­ford.

Kris­tine Overd, man­ager of Sassi Hol­ford Taun­ton – a re­turn­ing ex­hibitor, says: “We love com­ing to the wed­ding show at West­point; the at­mos­phere is al­ways buzzing, and the cat­walk shows are so much fun. Of­fer­ing a unique op­tion to cre­ate your per­fect gown with de­signer Sassi Hol­ford, our stand is not to be missed.”

There will be show-ex­clu­sive of­fers and dis­counts avail­able dur­ing the week­end so brides can en­sure they’re get­ting the best prices. Each bride will re­ceive a com­pli­men­tary copy of South West Bride mag­a­zine, so that even if they don’t find their dress on the day they can con­tinue their search from the com­fort of home.

Com­ple­ment­ing the ex­ten­sive list of wed­ding sup­pli­ers in at­ten­dance - which also in­cludes sta­tion­ers, pho­tog­ra­phers, florists, venues and more - the chore­ographed cat­walk show will guar­an­tee wed­ding wear ideas aplenty. Run­ning three times daily (11.30am, 1.15pm and 3pm) and pre­sented to an elec­tric ar­range­ment of mu­sic and chore­og­ra­phy, the cat­walk show will be a daz­zling dis­play of the finest de­signer dresses avail­able, as well as for­ward­think­ing de­signs in menswear, brides­maids’ dresses and oc­ca­sion wear. The brands and busi­nesses tak­ing to the stage in­clude: Sassi Hol­ford Taun­ton, Pirou­ette, John Lewis, TL Bridal, Zebel, Lovely, Jane’s of Torquay, Jonathan Hawkes and The Ivory Se­cret.

Amy Newell at­tended last year’s event as a bride-to-be with her mum and said: “I’ve def­i­nitely got ideas on my wed­ding dress from the cat­walk. There were two de­sign­ers that we liked and fol­lowed up af­ter the cat­walk show. We’ve made a prom­ise to visit them af­ter the show. It’s also nice to see sup­pli­ers who are close to where we live that we wouldn’t nor­mally know about.”
