Wedding Wednesday - Our Five Faves from The National Wedding Show

Here at bb Towers, we love all things wedding. So we've decided to start a new series of posts on our little blog for all you brides and grooms to be, highlighting some of our favourite wedding trends, suppliers, tips and inspirations. We'll call them Wedding Wednesday cos we're original like that.

And what better way to start than with our recent trip to THE place for weddings - The National Wedding Show. After a gig-filled weekend, a slightly bleary eyed Blonde and Brunette headed to Earls Court to see what was new in the wedding world. We had a cheeky glass of champers to perk us up, then got down to business.

We saw lots of beautiful, unique, entertaining and inspiring stands and spoke to some fabulous and passionate people. Here are five of our favourites:

1. BspOak - The Wedding Tree Range

Fantastically original wedding guest books and favours with a wooden flavour. We loved their "Drop Top" Guest Books and their stand was a work of art!

2. The Singing Waiters

Secretly planted "waiters" that burst into song to surprise your guests, complete with acoustic guitar accompaniment and red roses. Oh, and they did the Dirty Dancing lift. Nuff said.

3. The Social Playground

Perfect for a very 21st Century wedding, this innovative company encourages your guests to take pictures on their phones, hashtag them with your names and then either put them on a big screen or print them on their funky printer. We'd love to see dance floor snaps on this!

4. Godminster Cheese Cakes

Every musician knows that a wedding is only as good as it's cheese board. And these ones are amazing!

5. Tuppence Collective

Invitations with true wow factor. Apart from the fabulous name of this company, we loved their unique designs and the beautiful quality of their stationary.

We hope that gave you a few new ideas and a taste of what The National Wedding Show has to offer. We have signed up for a stand of our own for the next London show in February and would be thrilled to see you there!
