Wedding experts to give advice in Melbourne

April 18, 2013 by  

Wedding experts will be on hand to help future brides plan their big day in Melbourne this weekend.

The Bridal Spectacular Bridal Expo comes to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on Saturday and Sunday. Only the best bridal retailers will be at the show, which will feature everything from tiaras to table decorations.

Catwalk shows will showcase the latest trends not only for brides, but also for bridesmaids’ dresses, menswear and mother of the bride outfits. Seating close to the catwalk means visitors can see all of the details on each dress, but for brides who prefer to take their time, catalogue printing allows them to take home information about each range to help decide on their perfect outfit.

The catwalk cocktail bar offers champagne, cocktails and beer; meaning the expo is a great way to get into the wedding spirit with friends and family.

As well as the catwalk shows, there will be more than 150 exhibitors at the expo, covering everything a couple could need to plan their wedding. Exhibitors include venues, car hire, florists and photographers.

Couples from West Melbourne have just a short journey to make to the expo, with the convention centre only a few kilometres away on the city's South Wharf.

The expo is open from 10am until 5pm on both days. To avoid crowds, there are five staggered arrival times with a catwalk show starting around an hour after each slot. For more information or to book advance tickets, visit the Australian Bridal Service website.
