Find Your Dream Dress

Inspired by what you’ve seen on the Catwalk? The National Wedding Show offers hundreds of stylish wedding dresses from leading brands. If something catches your eye, head over to the stands, and try it on for yourself. No pressure and no appointment necessary.

This is a great opportunity to sort your A-lines from your mermaids, your Chantilly lace from your classic crepe. Plus, exclusive show discounts make saying 'yes' to the dress even sweeter. 

You can also take time out to digest everything you’ve seen, with a glass of champagne at the Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Bar.
