Wedding Show…

Filed in Blog, Event Details by on 28th April 2013 0 Comments • views: 1303

A few months ago … just after Christmas I was sat round the table at a Ministry of Desserts meeting and Maria, our minister of flowers said she would really like us to organise a wedding fair together.

Wow! We all agreed with her to some degree, but were a little bit reluctant to commit to this as we all had our own individual businesses to run as well.  It was an exciting prospect too!

So in the midst of Valentines Day, Mothers Day and Easter, we have been working together to plan this Wedding Show.

The whole point of this show is to create something unique and different. We have planned with military precision the decor of the hall, the setting and the exhibitors. The exhibitors are hand-picked local independent businesses who truly want to provide an extra special and unique service to make any occasion stand out.  There will be no hard sell on the day – the idea is to make it a joy to plan the day, not a chore!

It has been great fun working with everyone and now the day is almost upon us!

I have been told by the other ministers “loose lips sink ships” so this is all I will say for now about the show, but I truly hope you will join us for this event and come and see for yourself!

The show is on 4th May … 3 to 5pm and will be held at  Wallasey Village URC, CH45 3LP

Last week we took part in an instagram challenge for #justacard. This was a campaign which highlighted the fact that every tiny purchase makes a difference to small businesses.
