A weekend of Wedding Shows!

Last weekend we went on a wedding show road trip, visiting both the Designer Wedding Show in Battersea, London and the National Wedding Show at the NEC in Birmingham.
It was great fun being on the other side for once ( and pretending to be a bride! oops sorry guys, a few white lies told!;) . Our main mission was to have a look around in view of perhaps exhibiting next year, but it was great seeing other florists work and getting new ideas for our brides .
The Designer Wedding Show was amazing, with the most luxury products and services in every area of the wedding industry so was great for inspiration, not to mention the pink champagne! The National Wedding Show was an abundance of regional wedding suppliers with every service possible. Very tiring on the legs but a fabulous day out never the less!
The verdict: see you at the NEC next autumn!

The Pavillion Wedding Fayre -7th Oct 2009

What a busy wedding fayre it was! As it was held on an weekday evening we werent sure how successful it would be, but what a great job The Pavillion did to promote this event. Our vintage range was very popular. with brides loving the muted coloured rose varieties such as 'amnesia' and 'hypnose' . The vintage crockery and fairy cakes were kindly on loan to us by Vintage and Cake , who hire out these treasures for teaparties, weddings etc .
The next day we had 5 consultations booked so were very happy with initial interest!
