The Wedding Journal Show took over Citywest Convention Centre in Dublin at the weekend and a fantastic time was had by everyone who came along.
Whether exhibitor or visitor, anyone we spoke to throughout the course of the Wedding Journal Show was having a great time.
Our new, improved VIP was there to welcome our VIP guests with special reserved front row seating right in front of the main catwalk stage. The goodie bags were really well received and everyone indulged in the sweet treats and glasses of Prosecco!
2018 Bridal Fashion
On the main stage the catwalk show ran three times daily at 12pm, 2pm and 4pm – as always the crowd were treated to a thoroughly entertaining display by our dancers as they showcased the latest 2018 wedding dresses, bridesmaids dresses, groomswear and mother-of-the bride occasionwear.
Expert Styling Tips
Also on the main stage, award-winning hairdresser Stephen McCusker and celebrity make-up artist Ken Boylan were not only perfecting the looks of our models all weekend but also took to the stage every day to share their expert knowledge on bridal hair and beauty with our audience.
An Entertaining Weekend
Other entertainment on the day included the awesome Hit Machine who captivated the crowd with their drum playing and Irish dancing, singer Maria Fitzgerald and then of course there was the atmospheric Entertainment Stage with a variety of wedding bands playing over the course of the weekend.
