BRIDES-TO-BE and their future husbands will find plenty of inspiration for their nuptials this autumn with the return of the popular I Will wedding shows.

  I Will, a division of Newsquest which ownsthe News, Advertiser and Shuttle newspapers, has been organising wedding shows for more than 25 years. Taking place at 10 venues across the county, the exhibitions enable visitors to access a vast array of specialist companies and services all under one roof, taking much of the stress out of wedding planning.

The autumn season opens with two wedding shows on Sunday September 9, at Wharton Park Golf Club in Bewdley and at The Lygon Arms in Broadway.

Wharton Park will play host to around 30 exhibitors, while The Lygon Arms will feature around 25.

Everything from flowers and cakes to jewellery and photography will be on display, plus a large selection of outfits and accessories from local boutiques.

Visitors to both shows can enjoy a complimentary glass of wine, as well as entering the free prize draw for the chance to win a wedding gown from the shows’ sponsors, Bridal Boutique of Worcester.

 The autumn 2012 calendar also includes a brand new event at historic Dumbleton Hall near Evesham as well as a return to prestigious Brockencote Hall in Chaddesley Corbett, and the largest event of the season at Worcester Rugby Club with around 90 exhibitors and two professional catwalk shows. 

The season also includes return visits to Hilton Birmingham Bromsgrove, Stourport Manor and The Copthorne at Dudley, all of which feature two catwalk shows as well as a host of exhibitors.

 Admission to all the exhibitions is free, and there is plenty of parking space at each venue.
