The Big Welsh Wedding Show 2015

I'm still new to the bridal scene, so this weekend just gone I was pretty excited to go along to my first bridal fayre show. Although I'd been to a couple of bridal fayres already, the Big Welsh Wedding Show was the first of its kind that I'd experienced and it was brilliant! It was also the first wedding show that we'd paid to get into, so we had high expectations, but we weren't disappointed.

I went along to the show which was held at Cardiff City stadium with my parents, my fiancé and his parents, kicking off the event by watching the show which started with a talented singer called Jasmine who had a beautiful voice, and who managed to get the audience in the mood to see some stunning bridal attire. The first collection to take to the runway was from a bridal store called Samantha K, who are based just outside the city in Pontypridd. I thought their dresses were a lovely combination of understated detailing and elegant fabrics. The cut of their dresses was very complimentary to the feminine form, with figure hugging bodices combined with voluminous skirts. There were two other bridal stores who sent their stunning gowns down the runway and were both Cardiff based- Laura May and Hannah Emily bridal. These dresses were more modern in style and equally as elegant. I haven't started trying on wedding dresses yet, so I found it really helpful to get a sense of how different styles and cuts fit on the body.

The show was brought to a grand finale by a group of singing waiters, another first for me which brought a brilliant surprise element to the show, as did the performance from Pzazz dance group. Currently sitting at the top of my hen party list Pzazz was a trio of two women and a man in skyscraper heels, who danced the best rendition of Beyonce's single ladies dance I've ever seen. Their performance was enjoyed by both the men and women in our party and apparently dance tuition and themed hen parties are something they specialise in.

After the catwalk show and entertainment had finished it was then time to make our way around the many stalls and exhibitors, who had everything on offer from luxury cars to photography and wedding stationery on offer. One of the pieces of advice that other people have given me and that I've found really helpful is that each bridal fayre is organised by different companies. So if you can do your best to attend different companies' fayres, in theory you should be able to see something different. Which was exactly the case at the Big Welsh Wedding show, which was great in terms of gaining inspiration and finding unusual and more unique vendors. We had a great time at the event and found it both entertaining and useful to attend.
