    It’s Always Been a Tradition

    On your wedding day there is a certain tradition that most brides, even the modern ones, still like to uphold to. The something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue.

    For your something old this can be linked with your something borrowed, as traditionally the brides ‘something borrowed’ is usually an item of jewellery or even their wedding dress which was worn by their mother. If the bride does not wear her mothers dress she often sews a piece of fabric from it into her own. In Japan it is traditional for the bride to wear a white silk kimono that is handed down from generation to generation – a very sentimental gift from mother to daughter but also an expensive one prices tend to start at £10,000 and can range to as much as £100,000!

    The something new has unlimited ends, so most brides consider their wedding dress as their something new but to be honest anything can represent this from your dress to your underwear. It’s up to you! Check out some stunning Wedding dresses from Perfection Bridal at our next fair on the 30th June, they have masses of stunning dresses to suit all sorts of brides.

    It has long been a tradition that the brides something blue was a garter worn around her thigh on the wedding day and is sometimes presented to the bride to be by a friend on her hen night. If you’re stuck for ideas it can easily double as your something new! If you are looking to go outside of the box and have something different why not try incorporating it into your jewellery, hair accessorises, lingerie, shoes or even your wedding day theme.

    Whether you want to incorporate these traditions into your wedding day theme or bridal ware it is completely up to you and we have an endless list of options to assist you in these decisions – If you would like to get a quote please contact us on 01273 771500 or come and visit us at The Marry Me Wedding Fair on the 30th June!

    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

    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!

    Heating up for Pamper Me!

    flyer-front-low-resWe’re very excited about the Pamper Me! event on 15 July, not least because it’s the first time we’ve launched this completely new type of wedding fair, but also because of the buzz it’s created with our exhibitors.

     

    There are so many wedding fairs in spring and autumn, and it’s so hard to get a good ROI as an exhibitor. If you’re booked to exhibit at a wedding fair on a Sunday – and let’s face it, they’re always on Sundays – you can bet your bottom dollar there’s at least two or three going on in the same local area. If they’re not run by competitor wedding fair planners then the venues are doing them themselves. How on earth are you supposed to generate good numbers at the events? There are only so many brides!

     

    We launched Pamper Me! during the summer expressly to combat this, hoping that without such a high level of competition, we’d see good footfall and serious visitors, people who actually want to book bridal suppliers… but we have taken it one stage further, identifying that it’s usually the brides-to-be that want to come to these events. And their mothers of course. And their mates! So we have aimed this at a very female market, urging exhibitors to really get behind this with samples and tasters, to make the whole evening a bit more fun! There’s live music, a Lucky Voice karaoke pod, tiny cup cakes to sample, tiaras to try on, hair and makeup consultations to experience… and bubbly on arrival, plus a nice goody bag to take away. It’s a very girly event, we’re confident it’s going to be fabulous!

     

    We’ve got two stands left, that’s all. So if anyone fancies trying out something different, email us quickly. We’re lining up some more of these events based on the response so far… exhibitors who support us at the first event will enjoy a special deal at subsequent Pamper Me! nights.

    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
