Bijou brides we are in the depths Wedding Fair season and I’m sure you’re thinking ‘seen one, seen them all’.  Well lovely ladies you most certainly have not.  Wedding Carnival on Saturday 24th March in Manchester is defining itself as “part of a new revolution of Wedding Fayres”  and promises lots of fun – it is a carnival after all – and of course inspiration.

The team behind Wedding Carnival are Kelly & Colette of All Wrapped Up who will also be among the many exhibitors you’ll have the chance to meet on the day.  Bijou has also had a small part to play by designing an inspiration board for All Wrapped Up’s display area at the Carnival which you can see below.  Inspiration boards are the thing I love most when working with my Wedding clients and I promise to start sharing more on the blog.  The theme All Wrapped Up wanted me to work up was ‘An Indian Summer’ where I sought to blend bold vibrant colours with rich gold details.  If you’re looking for some affordable style inspiration/ direction check out my Dream Designer package at www.thebijoubride.com/style-services/

Wedding Carnival is just over a week away, the Bridal catwalk show will run at 12pm and 2pm and there is a long list of other exhibitors for you to check out including Menswear, Cakes, Stationery, Hair and Make-up, Flowers, Candy Carts, Vintage Props, DJ’s, String Quartets, Dove release, Wedding bloggers, Honeymoons, Wedding Cars… and heaps more!
