    Peter Andre – wedding planner?!

    It’s all happening here at Marry Me Towers – we’re heading full pelt towards our next amazing Pamper Me bridal evening, even bigger and more beautiful than before. We’re moving to the elegant Paganini Ballroom at the Old Ship Hotel for the next one – have a look at the information HERE

    In the meantime though, we have an exciting opportunity for anyone getting hitched. Peter Andre (we love him and we’re not afraid to say so!) is looking for a couple who want to get married this summer, or who want to get engaged and would like some help from the man himself! It’s for Peter’s new ITV2 show.

    If you would like to apply to take part in the show email us and we can forward your details to Peter’s production team!

    Fabulous Tiki Bar created for wedding client

    The New Year is fast approaching and the wedding trends for 2011 are set to be amazing!

    On the fashion side – feminine and glamorous dresses are on an all time sales high with statement jewellery pieces and coloured shoes being the must have essentials to add that perfect finishing touch.

    For the flowers – it will be all about the natural and beautiful flowers with fresh and seasonal blooms being at the top of most couples lists. For those on a bit of a budget pot plants and artificial flowers are a big hit!

    The venue – this is normally one of the most important parts of the wedding to plan, as most brides have there perfect venue in mind. The classic and traditional venues are now looking like a thing of the past with a distinct shift towards the smaller, intimate and quirky venues. They not only add a unique edge to your wedding but make it that little bit more personal. – We have a huge range of venues available from cute country barns and modern chic hotels to wedding teepees. Alongside the changing trends in venues is the choice of catering for the reception – this has moved towards BBQs, buffets, afternoon tea and quaint summer picnics.

    Cakes – Yummy! The sweetest part of the day is in keeping with the same trend as last year with the cupcake. But this year it will be joined by its fellow sweet treats the Whoopie pie, the cake pop and candy buffets! – Talk about putting a sugar high your big day.

    Finally the personal touches – 2011 will see a big rise in couples adding personal touches to their special day through a variety of different methods be it favours, photo bunting, personalised bottles of champagne and choice of catering. – We can help you to add that personal touch to your day by noting down what you want or helping you with ideas. The sky really is the limit!

    We keep in touch with the latest wedding trends so that we can bring them to you! For more information about our wedding planning services please email us on info@marrymeweddingfair.co.uk

    Themed weddings get more exciting!

    We’re really excited about the new series of Wedding House on Channel 4. For ages we’ve been banging the drum about having exciting and unusual weddings and been lucky enough to have been the wedding planner for a few crazy brides! But it’s thrilling to see themed weddings on national television.

    The first episode of Wedding House featured an Alice in Wonderland theme for a wedding, with great attention to detail (the devil is in the detail!) and the most amazing costumes – every single guest was dressed up as a character from the story. Giant cupcakes, delicate teacups and saucers for drinking from, giant toadstools, ‘Eat me’ and ‘Drink me’ signs… the props were stunning!

    What was really interesting was seeing the groom change from being slightly reluctant, to really enjoying dressing up. We see this a lot with themed parties and weddings. People feel a bit daft until they really get into the swing of things – then suddenly they find their inner child released and really start to have fun!

    Also in the show was a fantastic Moulin Rouge themed wedding. We thoroughly approve of the complete over-the-topness of this theme and even more so as the bride and groom are both theatrical types. They even go one step further and include a performance as part of their wedding!

    All this just goes to prove what we’ve been saying for ages. The days have gone where the traditional wedding is the only option. Civil ceremonies have contributed a lot to this change, bringing with them new formats and having no precedent to follow… we love the new creative wedding ideas and in fact we’re working on a Winter Wonderland wedding and a ‘Disney’ themed wedding at the moment. tiki-bar-set-up

    One of the most popular weddings we ever worked on included a full Hawaiian tiki bar (pictured) and two tonnes of sand being brought into the venue! We’ll never forget seeing the wedding guests kick off their shoes and run into the sand laughing and giggling like children!

    So. If you are planning a wedding with a more unusual theme or angle, we can match anything you’ve seen on Wedding House, and a whole lot more besides! We have prop builders, make up artists, actors and performers – everything you need to create the wedding of your dreams and fantasies. Click here to email us

    Roll up, roll up… for wedding entertainment

    imported-photos-00215Circus acts and entertainment are becoming a hot new trend at weddings – it’s fun, exciting, it appeals to all ages and is guaranteed to have all your guests’ jaws dropping!

     

    Fairground stalls are great for creating an atmosphere. You can include toffee apples, candy floss and popcorn stalls that can double as desserts for your guests. We have a great variety of side stalls such as coconut shies, hook a duck and cork shoot, and food stalls for you to hire that all your guests will love!

     

    You can have acts like jugglers, stilt walkers, fire-eaters, caricaturists, clowns and contortionists to entertain and interact with the guests. We have a huge range of circus entertainers available too. The stilt walkers also have a range of outfits to suit your wedding theme – think pink flamingos, Moulin Rouge, clowns and bumble bees… you name it, we got it!

     

    Imagine how and where the entertainers would have the most impact on your day – meet and greet, kids’ entertainment… heck, you could even have someone crazy giving away the bride if you wished!!

     

    If you want to go all the way with the fairground and circus themes why not hire a marquee, big top, dodgems or waltzer!? There is so much available these days and we have it all. If any of this excites you, get in touch and we’ll get the ball rolling…

    Pamper Me Success!

    dscn2257We’re absolutely thrilled with the way Pamper Me! worked last week. Our wedding fair with a difference was a definite success and we’re already planning the next one. We will be launching the winter events and the first date to be announced is the 20th January, again at the Thistle, and again an evening event like this one

    Running this type of wedding fair was definitely a bit of a risk for us, with Pamper Me being a very different format and a very different time of year from most wedding fairs. But as you can see from the pictures everyone had a roaring good time, we had so much fun. If you want to see more about it then do go to our facebook page HERE and have a look.

    A huge thank you to all those who exhibited and supported us… and to our models and volunteers too. We’re looking forward to the next one – and keep your eyes peeled for pictures of the event in the Latest magazine and Absolute Brighton!

    Exciting new Art Director for fashion shows!

    Here at Marry Me Towers we’re really excited following a meeting today with new creative genius Tennille Posthumous, who is now heading up the bridal fashion shows at the Marry Me wedding fairs in Brighton.

     

    This year sees a big change in the way we do our wedding fairs, taking the standards higher, and making it much more exciting and more of a performance-based showcase. We’re also launching the first of our sexy bridal pamper evenings on 15 July but more about that later!

     

    Tennille is our new Art Director for the bridal fashion shows, bringing her first-hand experience in choreography, styling and modelling to the wedding fairs. Expect pizzazz: lights, camera, action! Lots of dancing and some amazing music. Plus a lot more than just dresses on the catwalk – there will be lingerie, accessories and bouquets.

     

    We also plan to ensure a variety of sizes and ages, as we know you’re not all size 8. And wouldn’t want to be!

     

    Next fair is at the racecourse on 23 May 2010. If you’d like to visit or take part, do contact us. info@marrymeweddingfair.co.uk

    THIS SUNDAY DRAWS NEARER!

    by Sam Harrington-Lowe

    Our wedding fair at the Thistle in Brighton on Sunday draws closer. It’s a whirl of activity in the office now as the last preparations are finalised and details checked. We actually had someone wanting to book last minute today – think we managed to squeeze them in but it’s a really busy fair this time. Must be lots of love and romance in the air!

    Having a fashion show rehearsal on Thursday to run through the dresses. Got absolutely gorgeous dresses to die for, also darling little bridesmaids and men’s suits too.  Been choosing the music this week… expect something a bit different this time, we like to keep things interesting!

    PeeWees Hairdressing in Brighton are setting up a huge stand and the models are going to have their hair done live in the centre of the exhibition. You’ll be able to see the stylists in action and when they’ve done the models, they’ll be grabbing passing lucky victims to give them a sexy new ‘do, all complimentary! How cool? Visit a wedding fair and have your hair done by the experts for free! We have a team of fabulous make up artists on hand too – these are all people who do weddings, so a great chance to see them in action. Think there are lovely products from PeeWees in the goody bags this time too.  

    We’re working out what our special offer for brides is going to be this time too – might even be a competition of some sort so watch this space…

    NEW VENUE ANNOUNCED

    by Sam Harrington-Lowe

    Really excited now that we have just secured a fantastic new place for a wedding fair in West Sussex. Field Place in Worthing is absolutely gorgeous, they’re going all out for weddings and civil ceremonies and Marry Me! is delighted that we’re going to be doing a wedding fair with them on 4th October.

    Can’t say how pleased we are. It’s a great venue, and an opportunity to offer all those exhibitors from further West and even up into Surrey or Hampshire a place to exhibit. Oh, plus it’s got loads of free parking! Got to be a winner.

    Anyone who hasn’t seen the place before, have a look at their site here and if you would like to exhibit or visit, wing us an email. Since we secured the spot yesterday we’ve had five exhibitors book space though so be lively!
