A Look Back At The Wedding Journal Show

Highlights from Dublin and Belfast


Once again the autumn Wedding Journal Shows in Dublin and Belfast were huge hit with visitors and exhibitors.

The Wedding Journal Shows in Dublin and Belfast where hiving with brides and grooms eager to see what was on offer from the hundreds of bridal exhibitors showcasing their array of dresses, grooms wear, transport, stationery and so much more!

Without a doubt the most talked about and captivating feature of the shows is the bridal catwalk which runs three times daily. Each scene is a dramatic extravaganza brought to you by the very best bridal shops, manufacturers and designers available across Ireland. As well as bridal gowns, you will see bridesmaids’ dresses, grooms wear and ideas for the mother-of-the bride and groom.

Coming a close second is our live Win a Wedding final which took place on the Sunday afternoon at both the Belfast and Dublin shows. With amazing wedding packages worth €35,000 and £30,000 to give away to two lucky couples the atmosphere was electric on both occasions as the winners were decided after a fun, on-stage final between our winning couples. We’d like to once again that all of our sponsors who made this possible and also wish our winners all the best as they start to plan their big day.

Amongst all of this activity, the exhibitors were doing their thing and treating visitors to sweet treats and glasses of fizz as they made their way about the show, taking full advantage of the exclusive show discounts on offer. We also launched our newly extended Curious Wedding Zone which was a huge hit with couples looking for something unique for their big day and of course our destination wedding and honeymoon exhibitors bring lots of ideas and advice for couples looking for idyllic locations that they will remember forever.

Let’s face it, making important wedding decisions can be tiring, so it’s nice to be able to take the weight off your feet with a glass of Prosecco in hand at the show in our luxury VIP Lounge, which was sponsored for the first this year in Belfast by Victoria Square. Although you can watch the catwalk show from the comfort of the VIP area, if you prefer to be in the midst of the action there is reserved front row seating at the catwalk for all VIPs to enjoy the catwalk show up close.

Those who pre-booked their VIP tickets online also got a goodie bag worth €45 in Dublin filled with Benefit and He-Shi beauty products and £40 in Belfast with items from Make up Pro Store Paddy McGurgan and Skinician.

Buzzing from all of the great feedback, we can’t wait to do it all over again in the Spring and meet more couples planning their weddings. So look out for the next shows taking place once again in the Citywest Convention Centre, Dublin on 13th and 14th January 2018 and Titanic Exhibition Centre, Belfast on 3rd and 4th February 2018.
