Dominique Douglas of Stylish Events and her team and Isabel Smith of Isabel Smith Wedding Design have been chosen to lead two sessions within the ‘imagination’ room and ‘on the sofa’ of the next eagerly anticipated show which opens its doors from Friday 3rd to Sunday 5th October at the Business Design Centre, Islington.  Want to know more?

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!

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 Always Andri at last year’s show. Stylish Events will be teaching you how to make your own utterly personal confetti, confetti cones and holders.  Looking at different styles, sizes and finishing techniques, brides will be able to dive in and make and decorate their own sample cones under expert direction. Colourful, visual fun guaranteed!  This session takes place on Saturday 4th October from 3.30-4.10pm.


And meanwhile Isabel Smith is happy to take to the sofa and share her left-of-field ideas on completely wow and different must-haves for your wedding. Features for your wedding day that you and your guests won’t have seen before and are likely to leave you amazed.  Some of them are wonderfully simple and might leave you asking ‘why didn’t I think of that?’ and others are darn-right whacky.  There will be lots to see, touch and feel and set your creative juices flowing.  This session takes place on Sunday 5th October from 11.30-12 noon.

Both planners  will be around following their sessions so do say hello and ask any of your burning wedding planning questions or feel fee to ask them more about the UK Alliance of Wedding Planners.  Both companies are long-term proactive members and Dominique Douglas is one of our two Regional Ambassadors for London and the South East.
