Wedding Planning Moment!


Hands-up if you attended this year’s Bride the Wedding Show in Bournemouth? The Front Row Bride team did and we loved every minute. It’s fair to say, we were in our element.

So, who REALLY caught our eye?

If you’re at the start of your wedding journey, take a look at the cute wax seals that we spotted, which can be custom-made for your wedding invitations. In all the colours of the rainbow, too!

It was lovely meeting Kathryn, who hand-designs such an exciting array of wedding stationary. We wish we’d known about Kathryn before we got married!!

Visit Kathryn’s website here.

It was great to see wedding caterers of the year, Beales Gourmet, showcasing their incredible talents, along with an amazing florist we recently have had the pleasure of getting to know. Sweetpea Florist in Blandford Forum seriously know their stuff when it comes to flowers; from trends, tips, expert insights, seasons, colours and more, if you are getting married, these guys need to be added to your speed-dial now!

We also stumbled across The Little White Heart Company! How did we not know of them before? Their event styling and wedding décor is so cute, with a superb range of accessories such as chair covers, flower walls, table settings, The Little White Heart Company is definitely worth getting to know.


The two-day event, hosted at the Bournemouth International Centre, was packed with wedding suppliers from across Dorset, Hampshire, Wiltshire and Somerset.

We got to meet so many lovely local wedding suppliers (you’re all amazing might we add!) and we chatted about everything from diamonds, to bridesmaid dresses, bridal make-up to wedding photography, wedding venues to wedding cakes, stationary to bridal boot-camps…. there’s so much local talent we are very lucky!

If you missed this year’s Bride the Wedding Show, then be sure to get in early for next year. There are plenty of other local events taking place, visit our calendar here so you can sync all the events to your phone and not miss an event ever again!
