Wirral Wedding Fairs You Don’t Want To Miss
Congratulations – your’e engaged! If you don’t know where to start and are a bit daunted by the whole thing, setting a date and finding your venue needs to be right up there at the top of your list.
Checking out a few open days and wedding events is a great way to start as not only do you get to see the venues and see them dressed at their best, there are often a few hand-selected suppliers on hand to offer advice and inspiration for your big day.
Lots of the events seem to happen on the same day so if you plan ahead you may be able to cram in a few visits on one day. Our advice – make a day of it. Take Mum, your bestie or even your betrothed (a very rare sighting!) and build in a few glasses on fizz and maybe a pub lunch along the way – after all this is your first ‘official’ day of planning so it should be as fun as possible.
Here’s our round up of the wedding events you won’t want to miss….
