Brides The Show will be showcasing the very best in bridal, all under one roof – from cake couturiers and florists, to dress designers and luxury travel gurus – and so much more! With hundreds of luxury exhibitors you can tick every ‘to do’ off your big-day list! There are two areas you can watch and listen to our members The Imagination Zone and On the Sofa.

Live catwalk show curated by Brides, fashion director

The Imagination Zone

The imagination zone is a very exciting feature which has been with the show since it’s birth and is a treasure-trove of hands-on, DIY wedding inspiration.  It’s ideal if you want to learn some tips from the experts on designing, creating and making some really special and unique touches for your wedding, with an eye on the budget of course. See below for a similar session run by Member and Regional Ambassador Always Andri at last year’s show.
