The National Wedding Show at NEC Birmingham has everything you need to plan a wedding under one roof.

Venues, photographers, videographers, florists, caterers, performers, bridal boutiques, suit shops, stationers… there’s a wedding supplier for your every need.

And whether you are in the early stages of planning, or months away from your big day it is the perfect place to pick up new wedding ideas, get inspiration, talk to experts and discuss your plans with friends and family over a glass of champagne.

For the brides-to-be looking for their perfect wedding dress choices were endless - from classic gowns, to glitzy-glam dresses, fairytale dresses or a unique outfit, enough to inspire a woman to choose the one.

Tiaras, head dresses, decorative headwear, jewellery, veils - brides could also have endless choices in choosing the right accessories to accompany their perfect wedding dress.

And for the grooms, suits stalls a-plenty offered different options, while there were also stalls for bridal parties, bridesmaid dresses and full outfits for the mother-of-the-bride and mother-of-the-groom.

Wedding bands and singers performed as you walk through the stalls, while magicians performed magic tricks to entice any wedding planner. While you could pose up a storm in a photobooth - and even a car photobooth.

Wonderful and unique cake designs were on show, while flower bouquets and confetti stands gave a floral theme to the afternoon.

A regular catwalk show featuring designer gowns and suits, gave brides - and the groom - inspiration for their big day.

And after hours of browsing, shopping and planning - champagne bars offered shoppers a place to relax and think about their big day.

The National Wedding Show offers a great day out for brides, grooms, bridesmaids, friends and family to look at options and gain inspiration ahead of the big day - especially if they are in the early stages of planning.

The National Wedding Show is at NEC Birmingham until Sunday(29).
