Happy couples at the Hilton
10:20am Wednesday 20th February 2013 in News
The latest I Will wedding show brought over 160 prospective brides and grooms to the Hilton Bromsgrove on Sunday, where there was plenty of matrimonial inspiration to be found.
Over 40 exhibitors showcasing everything from jewellery and hat hire to fireworks and travel services were on hand to give expert advice, and visitors also enjoyed looking round the stylish hotel as a potential wedding venue.
The highlights of the day were the two professional catwalk shows featuring wedding fashion from local boutiques. These included Bridal Boutique of Worcester, sponsor of the I Will events, and visitors could also enter a prize draw to win a dream bridal gown from the boutique.
For exhibitor Jane McCrone it was her first-ever wedding fair. Jane of Jewellery Inspired, makers of hand-made Swarovski crystal and pearl jewellery, was particularly pleased with the event: “it was a great success, very well organised, with a lovely atmosphere. We are looking forward to doing many more events with I Will Weddings.”
The next I Will show takes place on Sunday, March 3 at Sixways Stadium, home of Worcester Warriors Rugby Club and this impressive venue will play host to around 60 exhibitors. The event runs between 11am and 3.30pm, and with plenty of free parking available, you can spend as long as you like browsing the stands.
Don’t forget to enter the free prize draw to win goodies including the dress of your dreams!
The I Will wedding shows – run by the people behind local newspapers such as The Shuttle, Bromsgrove Advertiser, Redditch Advertiser, Stourbridge News, Halesowen News and Dudley News – bring together an array of services under one roof. This means couples and their families and friends can spend a relaxed and enjoyable day collecting ideas and contacts to help create the perfect wedding.
