The Great Lancashire Wedding Show is held twice a year at the Bolton Arena. The show is hosted by Little White Books. November 2013 was the first year that we decided to exhibit at this wedding fair. There were approximately 120 exhibitors attending the fair so we wanted to ensure that we put our best foot forward.
The preparation before the fair took us weeks. We had wedding brochures, leaflets and pop up banners printed, which entailed writing all the content for the brochures, selecting photos etc. and agreeing the artwork. As we provide a wide range of services we had to decide what we wanted to actually have on the stand. We ended up having our fantastic chocolate fountain on display thinking it would pull in the crowds, and we were not wrong.
The day before the actual fair my husband and I went to set the stand up which took a good three hours. On the Sunday there were three of us manning the stand – we were rushed of our feet. The crowds were a good 4 deep at the chocolate fountain for most of the day.
I was definitely relieved when it was closing time. Once we packed up we went to our favourite curry house, Forts of India as I was starving not having eaten all day.
