Featuring an extensive range of over 300 suppliers from bridal boutiques to florists, cake designers, holiday specialists and photographers, The National Wedding Show offers unrivaled inspiration and ideas for every style of wedding. With a range of dresses from leading designers to made-to-measure, to mainstream brands, the show boasts the largest collection of wedding gowns in any one place and is a must attend event for every bride-to-be. With 3 shows in the spring and 3 shows in the autumn, in Manchester, Birmingham and London, they are perfectly timed and located to meet the needs of couples looking to wed at different times of the year.
We have seen a great representation of brides and grooms this season, with more grooms taking an interest in options and planning the big day! We noticed a significant increase in footfall on the previous year, as well as growth in orders taken at the show. It’s great to see such a variety of exhibitors acrossThe National Wedding Shows, offering visitors a wide range of retailers under one roof
This is by far the busiest show in the four years that we have taken part! We made contact with 900 mothers of the bride and groom over the three days. The quality of the visitor was extremely high with genuine set wedding dates. We have had amazing support and exposure too prior to and throughout the show
We’ve been at The National Wedding Show for years (probably about 10 now!) We have been doing really well, it’s a great show for getting the brand out there. We’ve had a lot of orders already and being involved in the catwalk has been really good too – the most popular dress on our stand is the one previewed on the catwalk. We like TNWS as it attracts a huge, quality audience
