The organisers of the show say “Following the phenomenal success of its debut show earlier this year, The Designer Vintage Bridal Show is back, bigger and better and packed full of home-grown bridal talent. Berrow Court in Birmingham plays host to the 2-day event where guests can wander through the house and gardens and choose from vintage inspired, designer pieces from bridal gowns to boudoir style underwear, from head to toe, from brand new to vintage originals, from fashion shows to afternoon tea and all nicely wrapped up with entertainment and a chance to meet and talk to the experts.”

As well seeing our fantastic stationery up close and personal (and getting the chance to win your Save The Dates – I’ll be posting about this soon!) there’ll be lots of vintage pretty on display from oodles of other fabulous wedding suppliers. There will also be the unique chance to hobnob with five of the wedding world’s most respected UK bloggers: Kat from Rock ‘n Roll Bride, Annabel from Love My Dress, Amma from Beyond Beyond, Alexis from OMG I’m Getting Married and Kelly from The Boho Wedding Blog, giving you the chance to pick the brains of these wedding gurus in person.
