02 Jan 2019
Bride: The Wedding Show returns to Tatton Park in Knutsford from February 2-3 and ahead of the event, a handful of exhibitors share the 2019 wedding trends couples can expect to see
Bride: The Wedding Show at Tatton Park provides the perfect way for engaged couples to plan their big day the local way. Visitors are invited to connect with a host of regional suppliers who can bring their wedding vision to life. From the initial choices to the finishing touches, couples at all stages of the wedding planning journey are welcomed to attend.
Sharing an insight into the wedding trends we can expect to see take centre stage for 2019 and beyond, a selection of exhibitors set to feature at Bride: The Wedding Show at Tatton Park offer their expertise.
Maria Modes Bridal & Menswear is based in Macclesfield, Cheshire. The latest designer collections will be available to view and try on at stand 214 at Bride: The Wedding Show.
Emma Kendrick, owner of Maria Modes Bridal & Menswear, says: “The biggest trend for 2019 has got to be comfort; brides are now prioritising substance over style. The rise of pocketed wedding dresses is here to stay, perfect for a bride who just wants to keep a few valuables close at hand and get on with enjoying her day. The same goes for dress shapes and train lengths; detachable trains are set to become big news in 2019, showcased by bridal powerhouses Pronovias and Maggie Sottero."
With stores in Chester, Warrington and Liverpool, Groom is a family-run business with more than 20 years’ experience in menswear. Meet the experts on stand 208 at the show.
Daniel Neilson, Groom Hire Warrington store manager, says: “At Groom, tweed is still proving to be popular. We have invested heavily in a new line of tweed suits to add to the existing tweed lines. And the rustic look doesn’t stop there. We now have a range of country ties to complement our tweed suits along with a new line in tweed shoes to finish the look.
“But don’t worry if you want a more traditional style, we have mixed tails coats and tweed waistcoats to bring the traditional and modern together in one look.”
Based in Manchester, Springbank Flowers is a creative business which offers a fine art approach to floristry. Springbank Flowers is a feature sponsor at Bride: The Wedding Show and will be decorating the venue entrance.
Louise Dawson, wedding team leader at Springbank Flowers, says: “The fact that there were two royal weddings last year will be a major factor in the requests we receive from brides for their flowers in 2019. Natural shapes and seasonal forms come together along with English flowers and foliage, as wedding bouquets become slightly smaller.
“Green and white will always be a popular colour choice, as will deep velvety tones and textures in mustard, aubergine and rich berry shades.
“The 1970s are also influencing wedding décor. Pampas grass, large glossy leaves, macrame, paper lanterns and natural hand-crafted touches all look back towards the 1970s.”
Liverpool-based The Paper Doll creates lovingly handmade bespoke wedding stationery. Find out more and see the dazzling designs for yourself on stand 217.
Sarah Cluney, owner of The Paper Doll, says: “Blush and rose gold opulence has to be one of our favourite colour schemes. There are so many gorgeous shades to complement and co-ordinate with this scheme: copper, champagne, nude and sparkling rose gold. It also works well for all seasons. Another popular theme is botanical and natural.”
“For us, we’ve found that stationery only keeps getting better year on year. Our ‘keepsake in a box’ style invitations feature not only the invitation which comes in a full presentation box, but also beautiful matching boxes of chocolate or personalised macarons. We have also been known to include mini sparklers and personalised bottles of limoncello.”
