Budget Bride Live Wedding Fair

Budget Bride Live Wedding Fair

On Sunday 7th September, we ran our Budget Bride Live Wedding Fair at The Ruby Lounge at Diana’s in Wellingborough. We had a great day with lots of happy couples coming to browse through the offers, meet with the suppliers and watch the fashion shows.

We had goody bags with glossy magazines from The Wedding Planner and Wedding Scene, and some delicious shortbread  favour samples from Betty Bakes.

The weather was amazing and I was so pleased to see Gerry’s Split Screen VW Camper Van getting lots of attention parked outside the Venue!

We had two fashion shows with Jewkes Bridal whose dresses are all priced under £600.

I was very lucky to have help on the day from my sister Becky and from Zoe, who were on hand at reception to run the registration and to help exhibitors finding their spots!

As for me, at 34 weeks pregnant and looking fit to pop, I must say that I took the opportunity to sit down at this Wedding Fair whenever I could!

Budget Bride Live Northamptonshire Wedding Fair

Budget Bride Live Northamptonshire Wedding Fair

I am so excited for our sixth Budget Bride Live Northamptonshire Wedding Fair which we are going to be running on Sunday 7th September from 11am to 3pm at The Ruby Lounge at Diana’s in Wellingborough!

I think it may be something to do with the fact that I am shortly going to be going on Maternity Leave to have a baby (10 weeks and counting until the due date!) and I know that this is the last Fair that I will be running for a few months, but there is always such a buzz and anticipation in the run up to one of our Fairs, that I can’t help but have a few butterflies!

This Budget Bride Live Northamptonshire Wedding Fair is going to be held in my home town of Wellingborough and we are going to be working with the cream of the crop of local wedding suppliers to ensure that we have a great group of wedding experts for you to meet with on the day! To give you a little taster, we are going to be having a brilliant range of services on display for you, from Candy Carts and Classic VW Camper Vans, through to expert Wedding Venue Stylists and brilliant Wedding Dress Boutiques – it’s all going to be going on!

We are going to have two Wedding Fashion Shows – at 12noon and 2pm, so make sure you time your visit to see some beautiful wedding dress ideas for under £700. There are also going to be Catering Companies giving away delicious samples for you to try, plus lots of inspiration from Wedding Styling Companies where you can have a chat about your ideas and wishes for your wedding.

We will be giving away free goody bags full of money off vouchers, glossy magazines and treats to all who pre-register. There is also a glass of bucks fizz to welcome you on your arrival as well as free car parking on site, to make things nice and easy!

We can’t wait to see you at our Budget Bride Live Northamptonshire Wedding Fair – it’s going to be a fab day and we're excited to help you get sorted for your wedding day 🙂 So grab your bridesmaids and make sure you pre-register for your free place here!

Budget Bride Live at The Eden Centre

On Sunday 3rd November, The Budget Bride Company and a massive array of gorgeous wedding suppliers landed at The Eden Centre in Kettering, Northants.

The Eden Centre is a real hidden treasure in Kettering. The unassuming front doors on Montagu Street open up into a grand art deco styled venue which, at one point in it’s history, used to be a theatre. Many of the original features remain, with gorgeous feature ceilings and galleried landings.

The size and feel of The Eden Centre, along with its excellent value wedding reception packages, made it a natural choice for us to choose as a Budget Bride Live Wedding Fair venue. The incredibly helpful and friendly venue team, headed up by Laurie, can’t do enough to make you feel welcome, which made all the difference for our last wedding fair of 2013!



Flowers by Bloom In Scents


Once all of the suppliers had set up their exhibition spaces, the doors opened to the public at 3pm. Guests were greeted by the sight of two super long limousines from LJ Limo’s parked outside the venue, these cars are definitely crowd pleasers!

Once inside the venue, brides to be were greeted with suppliers to help them with every area of their wedding planning – from flowers and photography through to DJ’s and brooch bouquets. We pick suppliers for our Budget Bride Live Wedding Fairs based on quality and price, so we were very proud to show off the amount of talent at this event!
