Wedding Shows - For Better or For Worse?

LONDON, April 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Over 50% of people attend wedding shows for inspiration only,* preferring to find their own vendors and suppliers once they have a clear idea of their special day.
General feedback about wedding fairs is mixed as you can snap up bargains and get discounts on your dream wedding, but you do find out how pushy salespeople and other brides can be.
However, visiting a wedding show can put you in contact with dressmakers, venues and musicians, and give you ideas for details you'd never have considered.
This April sees the biggest wedding show in North London return to Alexandra Palace for the third year, with over 65 professionals, including wedding photographers and stylists, available to give you personalised advice on your wedding day.
Decorative wedding cakes, unique wedding invitations and unusual wedding rings will all be at your disposal on Sunday April 22nd.
The In Wedding Show's main event is the Real Fashion Show, with wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses modelled by women of all shapes and sizes, so you can see how they will look on you.
The popular Pamper Zone run by the Benefit Cosmetics Team offers brides, friends and family a makeover, plus manicures and bridal makeup advice, including false eyelashes.
Before the Big Day, the official blog of The In Wedding Show, will be at the show running bridal advice sessions to help you organise your wedding. These advice sessions are designed to inspire you and this year's topics are DIY Weddings Made Easy and How to Make Your Wedding Fabulous (Themes & Colours). Book your free place when you order your wedding fair tickets.
Advance tickets to The In Wedding Show start from just £3.50 and brides who book tickets in advance will receive a free goodie bag on the day.
Easily accessible by rail, bus and tube, Alexandra Palace also has a large free car park for visitors, with a restaurant and pub within the grounds so you can refuel after your hard day of wedding planning.
