Wedding shows give you the chance to see all your options - and some you hadn't thought of - all under one roof and the biggest in the south east is the Wedding Experience.
It'll take you on the ultimate wedding planning journey.
The Wedding Experience has been helping brides-to-be and their grooms make up their minds about everything from where to say their vows to what to wear in their hair for years. With hundreds of exhibitors, the shows give you a chance to meet local suppliers face to face so you can make sure the style and budget fits your needs.
Find fresh ideas and amazing inspiration, plus advice and tips. Need to decide which gown might be the one for you? Watch a catwalk show where you can see how dresses fit and flatter.
Thinking about suits, rings, decorating your venue and live entertainment? They're all there.
Want to find the perfect invitation which shows you've given that attention to detail to make it special to you? You'll find it.
Need to find a caterer to make that bespoke cake you've dreamed of? You'll get a taste of what the county has to offer.
Not only will you have the chance to chat to a range of Kent’s finest wedding suppliers, but you can bag yourself a goody bag filled with informative magazines, leaflets and a variety of treats to take home.
There are also special show offers and competitions to enter for the chance to win prizes for your wedding day.
Each April and October, the Wedding Experience hosts the South East’s largest free wedding show so you can bring everyone that can help you with your decisions.
The events are free, but you can buy VIP tickets for £20 per person so you can enjoy the show in style with a glass of bubbly, a reserved seat for the fashion show, luxury cupcake, ice cream and a host of VIP treats and experiences.
