the wedding event with a difference – part 1

This weekend we headed up to Derby for Save the Date’s Magazine’s, second, Wedding Event with a Difference. We loved attending and exhibiting at the debut show in February, but I am delighted to report that this time around it was even bigger and even better! Everywhere you looked on the day was a feast for inspiration-hungry eyes and can be best described as an emporium of wedding-pretty!

The Roundhouse (which is also a beautiful and popular wedding venue) was the stunning and open setting for the show; a far cry from often stuffy and airless exhibition halls. This time they also had more going on in other parts of the building and some great things to see outside, including the guys from Peaktipis, who had pitched up a super-cool and impressive Tipi for the day. Inside you could find entertainment and drinks, helping to spread the fun of the day across the whole site. There was also You Can With a Camper Van, showing of their beautiful retro vehicles available for wedding hire, alongside Dennison Classic Cars which are both worth checking out if you wanted to do something a bit different and turn up in vintage style!

Everyone at the show was just lovely, from Save the Date girls, Lydia & Abbi, to some of our fantastic sellers who were also exhibing and we got to speak with. Most important though were the wonderful couples who had very lovely friends and family with them to help collect inspiration and ideas. We had some great conversations and it was a pleasure meeting every single one of you!

You can probably tell by this (ever-so-slightly) gushing blog post that we had a brilliant time at the Save the Date show – and we honestly did! Not even the late, stuffy, two hour train journey back to London last night could dampen our spirits today, as we’ve been telling everyone who will listen all about the weekend. Keep your eyes peeled on the Save the Date Magazine website for details of their next show.
