Happy couples plan their wedding at the Hilton
2:29pm Thursday 23rd February 2012 in Local
More than 190 budding brides and grooms were in attendance at the latest I Will wedding show on Sunday, held in the stylish surroundings of the Hilton Birmingham Bromsgrove.
The happy couples, together with their families and friends, sought inspiration and advice from more than 50 exhibitors displaying wedding essentials including cars, cakes, travel services and venue dressing – and enjoyed sampling a range of fine wines courtesy of Barefoot Wine.
Visitors also flocked to watch the two professional catwalk shows, which featured wedding fashion from local boutiques: The Bridal Boutique of Worcester, The Dressing Rooms of Halesowen, The Lace Mill of Kidderminster, 2 Have and 2 Hold of Kidderminster, Georgina Scott Bridal of Lye, and Dancers Menswear of Halesowen.
Steve Wilson from Retro Rentals Wedding Transport said “In the eight years we have been trading, we have always enjoyed great success at the Hilton wedding fair. It is a wonderful location, with great access and professionally run.”
The next two I Will shows both take place this coming Sunday, February 26, at Brockencote Hall Hotel in Chaddesley Corbett and The Copthorne Hotel in Dudley. These two delightfully different venues will play host to around 25 and 60 exhibitors respectively, offering everything you could possibly need to plan the perfect wedding.
Both shows run between 11am and 3.30pm, and with plenty of free parking available, you can spend as long as you like browsing the stands. Don’t forget to enter the free prize draw to win the dress of your dreams!
The I Will wedding shows – run by the people behind local newspapers such as The Shuttle, Bromsgrove Advertiser, Redditch Advertiser, Stourbridge News, Halesowen News and Dudley News – bring together an array of services under one roof. This means couples and their families and friends can spend a relaxed and enjoyable day collecting ideas and contacts to help create the perfect wedding.
