Brides the Show Autumn 2017 Dates

Win Tickets to Brides the Show Autumn 2017

This year’s Brides the Show event will take place from Friday 29th September to Sunday 1st October at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London. We have two pairs of tickets for each day of the show to give away in our latest competition…

I love this time of year and start to get really excited about the upcoming autumn bridal shows. Brides the Show is my favourite autumn bridal event as it’s THE place to find new wedding trends and styles. I really can’t wait!

Brides the Show Autumn 2017 Dates

Brides the Show is the UK’s leading luxury bridal show, with three days of unrivalled wedding planning inspiration. The autumn show is their sixth, and will be bigger and better than before, with over 150 luxury wedding suppliers showcase their services and products. Everything from wedding gown designers to florists, venues, photographers, stationery, food and drink, cakes, travel and jewellery.

Brides the Show Catwalk

There are many features of Brides the Show, with the catwalk one of the highlights. This season the catwalk theme is ‘Paris In Love’. Featuring the latest gowns from the best international designers, the show will take you on an evocative journey through the changing four seasons of a Parisian jardin.


Two brilliant areas at the show are the hen party zone and the wine tasting area (I’ll see you there). The dedicated hen party zone will have experts Cluck on-hand advising and offering master classes on hen activities, and the wine tasting workshops will be at The Sommeliers’ Table, in association with wine experts Corney and Barrow.

The Imagination Room at Brides the Show

During the show you’ll have access to top wedding planners, as well as the entire Brides magazine team who can help guide ticket-holders through every aspect of wedding organisation.
