The National Wedding Show 2018
Being a maid of honour comes with many responsibilities, even if the wedding is in two years time.
Today, I and the bride travelled into London to visit Excel London for The National Wedding Show, to get an insight into what she may need for the big day. A massive thanks to The Wedding Guide for running a competition to win a couple of free tickets to the show!
Our day was filled with stalls, activities, and sessions to watch. Here were some of our favourite stalls:
Of course, this online services and apps company have to be a fave of ours. They gave us free tickets to attend! But if you are looking for dependable suppliers in Essex and London, then this is the place to go.
