“Hands down, the best wedding fair we’ve been too by far” – Attending bride and her parents!

When you visit The Big Southwest Wedding Fair, rest assured you can expect to have the most organised, fun-filled, achey jaw from smiling so much kinda wedding day out! **Cue the scrabble over whose idea it was to book tickets first**

This is THE event to bring your fiancé and family (Heck, bring the entire wedding party if you like – it’s time to celebrate!!).

With its upbeat and lively atmosphere, you will be guaranteed to receive a friendly greeting from our team on arrival. Get ready to be welcomed into an event where you will find absolutely bloomin’ everything you need to plan your big day… With a fully accessible venue, whether it’s just you and your fiancé or your entire family and bridal party, we’ve set the day up so you get to plan your very special day, together.

The BSWWF team have worked their darn butts off to bring together some truly incredibly talented Wedding Businesses from across the Southwest. So whether you are getting married locally or traveling to the Southwest for your wedding, we promise, we’ve got you covered!

You can expect to find:

• Over 100 Wedding Businesses varying from Bridal & Menswear, to Stationary & Transport, Cakes & Favours, Beauty, Hair and everything in between. In short… we’ve got everything you may need for your wedding.

• Twice daily Catwalk shows at 11am and 1.30 pm featuring the latest in bridal, menswear and Mother of the Bride/Groom (and some very cute flower girls and page boys too if you are lucky!)

• The Wedding Style Hub - take advantage of our style experts in these short interactive talks over on the main stage after the first catwalk. You can ask questions and advice in these small group sessions.

• Live entertainment - Enjoy listening to our entertainers at their stands throughout the day.

• Onsite refreshments are available from both the onsite restaurant and also at some of our very own wedding caterers and bars throughout the event. This is perfect as it gives you time to take a break, gather your thoughts and have something yummy to eat and drink.

• A chance to win one of our TEN swag bags, full of gifts from our exhibitors. These are handed out at random over the weekend, so…. GOOD LUCK!
