Wedding Fairs On The Thames


Planning a wedding can be seem pretty overwhelming when you think of the many things you have to organise. If you have no idea where to begin, attending a wedding fair is a good starting point. Spring is the most popular time for wedding fairs so now is the time to get organised.


What’s Involved?

Wedding fairs are the perfect events for picking up ideas and inspiration for all aspects of your wedding: from invitations, venues, menus and decorations to wedding themes.

A wedding fair gives you a chance to meet suppliers and sample products. Whether you want a traditional, modern or whacky themed wedding, you will be sure to pick up some useful information and contacts. Exhibitors get the chance to sell their products and services, network and promote their business.

However, wedding fairs themselves can be pretty overwhelming, so here’s a few tips to getting the most out of the experience and enjoying your day.


The national shows can be pretty overwhelming so aim to attend a smaller show that is local to you or near your chosen wedding location. If you are planning a Thames-side wedding, choose a wedding fair in the London or Surrey areas.

Choose a companion who is happy to go with you. If hubby-to-be is reluctant, then leave him at home for the day and make it a girls’ day out with your best buddies.

Be aware of your wedding budget. Be realistic about what you can and can’t afford.

Have a few ideas in mind before you attend but try to be flexible and open to different suggestions.

If you like a supplier don’t forget to get their details, especially a website address.

Don’t feel pressured into signing up for things. Wedding fairs are for collecting information, inspiration and ideas; they are not a big sell.

Don’t panic! If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed and more confused than before you started, take some time out, relax, sip on a glass of bubbly and enjoy your day!
