A twice-daily catwalk fashion show will highlight the latest bridal wear, as well as Highlandwear, mother-of-the-bride outfits, a display of wedding vehicles – ranging from luxury cars to classic camper vans.
Event goers will also be able to relax at a prosecco bar while other catering options will also be available throughout the weekend.
Simon M Morgan, director at Your Wedding Exhibition, said: “We’re thrilled holding Your Wedding Exhibition again in 2017. It’s our 21st event and to have more than 210 exhibitors signed up is fantastic. It’s sure to be our buisiest and best exhibition yet.
“We have a terrific range of businesses showcasing their products, services and expertise ensuring there will be something for everyone at the exhibition and plenty of inspiration for any theme of wedding.
“Planning weddings is exciting but it can also be very stressful for couples and there will be hundreds of experts on hand at our exhibition across the weekend to give visitors advice and help to make it a happy and painless experience.”
