This must be Britain's biggest Wedding department store; a Bridal Spa featuring some 300 exhibitors offering the complete package including designer bridalwear, groomswear, occasionwear, accessories, photography, flowers, honeymoon destinations, venues, cakes champagne, gift lists and much more under one roof. This is very much a hands-on exhibition where you can enjoy free makeovers, pampering, fashion shows and sample the champagne before you tie the knot.
On the catwalk, (shows four times daily), you will see this year's classical bridal fashions highlighting Lace Dream (a neutral palette with lace detail), Pearl Bride (neutral again, with pearl and beading detail), Understated Excellence (simple lines with minimal detail) and Sparkling Nights (a slinky look featuring diamante and silver touches). For the modernists there is Metallic Haze (gold and silver with a metallic finish) and Bold & Beautiful (bright shades or flashes of colour). There are lots of freebies and special promotional offers to be picked up. Tops among these are a wedding in Coconut Bay, St. Lucia, and a honeymoon trip to Paris.
