We went to The National Wedding Show in London this weekend, and all i can say is if we hadnt got the tickets free id have been pretty pissed off.
Its fine if you havent booked anything, but it was all just services, so photographers, venues, djs, that kind of thing.
I was in the mood to spend decent money but there was just nothing. There were maybe 2/3 stands that did hair accessories, but nothing under £100! Madness
We did have a nice day though, chatted a lot about wedding stuff on the train and M got more of a picture of how he wants to look on the day. We've mostly decided against butonaires now, but potentially will have some for grandfathers.
M likes the ideal of a light blue tie & pocket square, and i can lie im going to need to be convinced. I just find it so.....samey. He would wear a blue tie to work, it doesnt feel special. Im just not a fan of light blue or light pink generally really, it feels a bit juvenile.
Still if it makes him happy!
I also discovered if you ask for a bridal top that isnt lace you will get looked at like you stabbed someone. Im having such a struggle to find a top for my dress that isnt lacey. There are some on Etsy, but for £250+ and when ill be wearing it for about an hour, theres no way im spending that much on it. It might be something i add to the ever growing DIY list.
