Today I wanted to tell you a bit more about the Designer Vintage Bridal Show and give you the chance to win some tickets to the show. This will be the third show and it takes place at Hagley Hall in Hagley, Worcestershire. On Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd September………….AND I’m going to be exhibiting! Woo Hoo!
The Designer Vintage Bridal Show (DVB) is a fabulous wedding show that stands apart from the other shows out there, why? well for a few reasons.
1) They have an extensive list of top wedding suppliers, all offering that bit more than your regular show. Each supplier has been hand-picked and invited to exhibit at the show and all have a pull towards the vintage way fo life, offering first class products and service as well as a more alternative outlook to the whole wedding scene
2) I’m going to be there! LOL….no really DVB is one of the only shows that really embraces the wedding bloggers and it has really welcomed us into their fold with open arms. This year there are 4 of us attending. Myslef, Beyond Beyond, OMG I’m Getting Married and Adore by Chloe. Not only will you get to meet us and chat to us on a one to one basis but we are also offering ourselves up to an open forum, so if you have anything to ask us please leave a comment in the Box below and we can come prepared with our answers.
3) As well as the amazing exhibitors and the chance to meet the wedding bloggers, there is a whole host of other stuff ging on, making this not just a wedding show but a whole day out.
A glimpse into vintage styling and design for wedding gowns through the eras. From the 20’s to the 70’s, take your seat for a journey across decades of designer gowns and vintage originals. Three daily shows starting with the sophisticated glamour of the roaring 20’s and 30’s; stunning designs influenced by the flirty and fun 40’s and 50’s and a finale dedicated to the swinging 60’s and bohemian elements of the 70’s.
