With more than 230,000 weddings / civil ceremonies taking place every year,* and the average wedding costing over £11,000, it’s clear that getting married is not just a special day for the couple involved but a big business opportunity for the companies that provide wedding services. Each year we run wedding shows across the Northwest region to help couples plan their big day and put them in touch with companies who cater for their every need, including wedding dresses, suit hire, catering, venue hire and more.
Every couple wants their wedding to be perfect and is looking for professional help to ensure the big day runs smoothly, is hassle free, and full of happy memories – our bridal fairs help to make this dream come true. As well as exhibitors show-casing their services our wedding shows also include fun events like bridal fashion shows, entertainment, and demonstrations to encourage visitors to attend.
