Wedding show at the Titanic Hotel Liverpool

Going to a Wedding Show is like enjoying a nice day out. After the excitement of the engagement, most of the Brides and Grooms to be have got a date in mind for their Big Day. However actually arranging your wedding can be enjoyable but stressful as well. Some couples start well in advance and visit all the wedding shows looking for ideas in terms of venue, wedding dresses, photographers, flowers, wedding rings, gifts for bridesmaids and so on.

I am always amazed how couples turn up to a Wedding Show when their wedding date is not until 2017! Still quite a long way to go I think but by planning ahead and talking to exhibitors this will help the couple to narrow down their research and stick to a budget. Apparently an average wedding now costs more than £18,000? It sounds quite a lot to me but better to get it right as you’ve only got one chance! It’s the same with everything and everyone you meet or going to places so the first impression counts. I felt the same as I approached the majestic warehouse and magnificent Titanic Hotel, the grandiose room was full of exhibitors getting ready to welcome the visitors. Everything was well in control thanks to the organiser, Bliss Wedding Shows and we were well look after by the staff from the hotel, plenty of tea, coffee and food helping us to get through the show, which was great. As a jewellery designer I came along with Exclusive Wedding Rings Company helping out for the day and greeting visitors coming up to our stand.


It is a very exciting time indeed for all the couples and close family members, especially when choosing a wedding ring! The same goes for buying a wedding dress. It’s such a difficult choice as there are some many styles to choose from so I am not surprised that the catwalk attracted all the brides to be, bridesmaids, mums, friends, etc and when I made my way to the catwalk the room was full! The models were beautiful, wearing elegant and stunning wedding dresses. As we approached the end of the show, people were leaving hopefully with more dreams and ideas in their heads for their big day. As for the exhibitors, I was pleased to catch up with some familiar faces and meet other wedding professionals and businesses. Everyone was packing up happy to get back home and relax until the next Wedding Show I guess.
