Calling all bargain brides

Visit the free bridal fair in Cheshire, aimed at cutting costs for your big day

Calling all bargain brides

A free wedding fair is taking place at The Bowdon Rooms, specifically for brides on a budget.

The fair has come about in light of a recent survey of 4000 brides to be. It found that the average wedding bill has been cut by £1000 since the recession.

The fair has come about in light of a recent survey of 4000 brides to be. It found that the average wedding bill has been cut by £1000 since the recession. Amongst ditching spa treatments and cheaper shoes, the biggest cut-back was on bridesmaids outfits- from £712 to £371.

The event – on Sunday 4 October from 11am to 3pm – will be cram-packed with a wide variety of exhibitors, ranging from photographers and car hire to florists, stationery and The Bowdon Room’s own in-house caterers, Herb and Spice. Would-be brides and grooms can throw themselves into a wedding fantasy by sampling Herb and Spice’s renowned canapés, whilst listening to resident swing band, Dominic Halpin and The Honey B’s.

The Bowdon Rooms is also calling for future brides’ sisters, mums or friends to also raid their old wedding wardrobes and turn up on the day with items from their own special day. This could include tiaras, veils, garters and even dresses. Taking advantage of the term ‘something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue’, brides-to-be could uncover a wedding gem without spending a penny.

Neil Hughes, director of The Bowdon Rooms said: “We’re really excited about our bridal fair and look forward to the exhibitors showing off what they do best for what is the most important day in a couple’s life. Hopefully lots of brides-to-be will go home with a better idea of what they want for their wedding. In addition to hosting a successful wedding fair, we’re also excited to see what wild and wonderful things past brides unearth and bring to the swishing element of the day.”

To register for this event, please call Eleanor Braun on 0161 926 8992 or email sales@thebowdonrooms.co.uk or just turn up on the day.
