Brides love to browse in the run-up to the big day and Wedding Experience shows are the place for them to indulge and take it all in.
With regular free-admission events held countywide, the shows have become a great place for couples and their families to meet specialist wedding suppliers and find out exactly what is on offer.
From cakes to wedding rings and from hair stylists to chauffeur-driven limos, everything needed for the big day is displayed under one roof.
New trends are often seen for the first time and companies pull out all the stops to present themselves at their very best, often with special money-saving offers.
Music and entertainers are showcased and the biggest events feature a catwalk show of bridalwear as well as designs for grooms, attendants and mothers-of-the-bride.
It is also a great place to try out bridal make-up and to find underwear and accessories.
Event director Tina Green says: “So, you have a list of things to book, see or simply ask about – you’ll be amazed at how much you can tick off that list after your visit!
“Meet face to face with a host of dedicated wedding professionals in just one day.
