Great Lancashire Wedding Fair 2013

By | Wedding Fairs | No Comments

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.

Victoria & Albert Marriott Hotel Wedding Fair- April 2015

By | Wedding Fairs | No Comments

A vibrant Manchester city centre hotel, located on the banks of the River Irwell, the Manchester Marriott Victoria & Albert Hotel exudes a historical charm that appeals to business and leisure travelers. This four-star hotel in Manchester was first built as a warehouse in 1844.

The Specialist Event Company Ltd worked with Margaret Ridings, Special Events Executive at the Hotel to bring you the Victoria & Albert Wedding Fair which took place on the 19th April 2015. The hotel provided the Room and we coordinated everything else from advertising the wedding fair to working with all the exhibitors.

Therefore we had banners made advertising the wedding fair. The banners were made by Need A Print. Next we created an event on Facebook and invited brides to attend. We also created an event on Stall Finder and Eventbrite. Stallfinder so that exhibitors could enquire about stalls and EventBrite so brides could register for their free tickets.

We also took an advert in the Lancashire Advertiser providing details of the wedding fair, who was exhibiting etc. Finally we had goody bags printed for the first 50 brides.

Each exhibitor was given exclusivity and in the end there were 20 Stalls, ranging from Wedding Stationery suppliers, Celebrant services to Venue dressers. Bella Rose Bridal Wear did a great catwalk show and John Kay entertained the visitors with Michael Buble and Frank Sinatra songs.  I even got to dance with a stormtrooper….which made my day!!!

During the course of the wedding fair Manchester Wedding DJ Paul Gee provided background music.

The feedback from both the Hotel and exhibitors was positive and we look forward to working with you all again in the not to distant future.

Great Lancashire Wedding Show 2014

By | Wedding Fairs | No Comments

After our success at The Great Lancashire Wedding Show last year we decided to take a stand twice the size. This time the show fell on the same weekend as my husband’s birthday, so it was extremely busy – Beer festival , Saturday set up for the show, Sunday – show and Monday we had a belated family meal to celebrate his birthday.

The show was on a much larger scale this year. We were stand 49 not far from the cat walk.Having been so busy last year we looked at lessons learned, and had a brochure with price lists ready for customers, had a prize draw on a I-pad and had more staff. The best thing was having our laser projecting on the arena wall with our name and stand number.

Once again our stand was reasonably busy with customers interested in everything which we had to offer. The Ferrero Rocher Pyramid attracted a great deal of attention, as did the chocolate fountain and Starlight Back drop.

A big thank you to everyone who visited our stand…
