This years Mothers Day started like any normal Sunday in our House, getting up with the kids making some breakfast getting them dresses, play with them.
(After a little reminder that it is indeed Mothers Day today) Finn handed me this lovely homemade card which he did at his school:
After we all got ready Mr. C. and the kids drove me to Ascot where BRIDE: The Wedding Show took place for the 2. year running.
Upon arrival i got greeted by the most charming elderly door man ever bless him,
he really made me smile!
With over 70 stalls there was plenty for me to explore. Next to Photographers and Caterers, Cake Makers there was Wedding Decoration, Entertainment and Suit Hire as well as a few Wedding Shops showing off some of there Bridal Gowns.
There was a Catwalk show with Wedding Gowns, Mother of the Bride Outfits as well as some dancing Groomsmen.
I really enjoyed the show and thought the music and choreography was fabulous the only slight negative i have to say is that i wished that they would have modelled the dresses on bigger sized Models some off the female Models who where on the catwalk where dressed in too big dresses
and pinned in which just didn’t look that nice!
I am not saying they shouldn’t have thin Models at all but it would be nice to have a round of Plus Size Models with some of the Wedding Dress Shops attending the Show who are catering for up to size 32 it would have been great to show off their bigger size range.
I think i don’t speak alone if i say that not every bride to be visiting the Wedding Fair
and watching the Catwalk Show is a size 8.
After all the Catwalk Show is to give you ideas and show you different gowns for you to take inspiration home!
After watching the show i made my way to say hello to Lisa from Sculptlite who was one off the Exhibitors at the Wedding Show.
I agreed to be her Model for the Day because she had life demonstrations so potential clients can see first hand how it works. So with my Flanks on the machine i had a nice lay down on her table (and nearly fallen asleep i was so relaxed:
Overall i came away having had a lovely chilled out time spend chatting to so many different Exhibitors from the Wedding Industry and getting loads of inspiration for my big day.
Here are some of my favourite Exhibitors i found:
Of course there was Sculptlite the brand new Fat Freezing Treatment which I have tried recently.

I am yet to decided what to put in my hair but i might use some of the lace of my dress to create a lovely side piece once i figured out how i want my hair for my wedding.
Jason Charles Jewellery from Sunninghill, Ascot make beautiful bespoke jewellery.
Whether you’d like your wedding ring tailored to fit with your engagement ring, or wish to personalise your band with a unique design, they can help you create the perfect piece of jewellery.
I love the fact that they make a mold for your curvy shaped engagement ring so your new wedding ring has the perfect shape to fit in with your engagement ring.
I am one of those brides to be to have chosen a unusual curvy design so i have no choice then have one made for me i am yet to decide what i exactly want.
You can either buy and decorate yourself or they offer a professional lantern set-up & installation service which takes that little bit of stress away from your big day and you know it will look perfect!
I am going to Germany soon so i will be visiting my venue again and will be measuring my tables and check out what kind of decoration i would love for our big day. i love the look of the yellow, grey and white lanterns together with some pompoms i think it would go perfectly with our rustic scheme and add the added wow factor.
I also picked up a goodies bag from the BRIDE Stand and a few other freebies like the cute camera biscuit, popcorn and a mug (always useful right?)
Disclaimer: I have been given a free Ticket to attend the Wedding Show but i have not been asked to write about the companies i mentioned i loved their work and wanted to share it with you so all thoughts and opinions are mine.
