Yesterday we attended what is consistently the largest Wedding Fayre in the West Midlands; The Midland Wedding Show at The Belfry. Every February and September the Midlands leading wedding exhibitors descend on one of the worlds most famous sporting venues. Closely following the exhibitors are the forever smiling brides to be with the not so smiling husbands to be. Who I am though to criticise the husbands to be? How many wedding fayres did I attend when I was getting married? It was less than 2, but more than 0, I had to go and look at where I was getting married!
The day was a long one, after a busy Saturday getting prepared Sunday kicked off before 7am. We had both cars in position and decorated by 7:30am, we then set up our internal stand and had breakfast. As the opening of the show approached the car park was filling up nicely and with the incentive of discounted entry before 12:00pm the queue to enter was in excess of 30 people for the first couple of hours. Over 500 brides attended the show, a phenomenal amount in just 5 and a half hours. Busy shows lead to busy Sunday evenings; every enquiry we received had a quotation sent via email the same day(well not quite, the last quotation left my outbox at 1:59am this morning!).
Thankfully today has been a little less hectic, apart from several people confirming bookings, thank you to them, your business is really appreciated. My final deed of the day was to confirm our place at the next Midland Wedding Show at The Belfry; Sunday 15th September 2013, put it in your diary! I can’t wait for it and another 20 hour day!
