Laura, our fabulous forever Brand Manager, gives us the low down on Wedding Fayres.
This time of year is proving to be all about romance from Valentine’s Day to Leap Day (men you can stop worrying now!!) It is also the main period in the year when engaged couples are out and about looking for wedding ideas – or even last minute planning!! Here at fabulous we have started to attend many of the local wedding fayres with our fabulous forever collection, and they are proving to be very popular indeed!
In the past week alone, we have attended fayres at Warwick Racecourse and the Ramada Hotel in Solihull. What’s great about these fayres is that you can find almost everything you need for your big day from your wedding rings to your invitations and flowers – and it’s all local to you! Warwick Racecourse had the most gorgeous dresses from Eternal Bride in Warwick. The Ramada fayre had fantastic designs from Wicked Weddingz invitations and table decorations to local magicians – so they can keep the children entertained during speeches!!
What surprised me when talking to many of the couples we met was how last minute they were in deciding upon their wedding rings. One couple were getting married in three weeks and had forgotten about them! I’m glad we were there to remind them!
It was really interesting to find out that many of the couples wanted something different to the traditional wedding ring. Our collection, ‘Love at First Sight’ proved popular. The wedding band, Spark, stood out because of how delicate it is with the endless flow of diamonds. Many brides wanted something to frame their engagement ring with a design that was subtle yet luxurious. Our ring Passionate Desire also had the same reaction as it really stands out and matches perfectly with princess cut engagement rings. The men’s rings also proved popular especially Hero from our ‘Tough Love’ collection. The two continuous lines engraved on the ring are sentimental yet understated.
Wedding jewellery was something else many brides were still looking for. At fabulous, we think Swarovski is perfect as it is elegant and subtle yet very glamorous! The Perpetual collection which is set with crystals and pearls is perfect yet timeless and the heart pendant and earrings are very delicate and understated. Other designers such as Thomas Sabo, Hot Diamonds and ChloBo are proving great for bridesmaid gifts as well as bridal jewellery. I love the Cute Mini bracelets from ChloBo with the heart, star or angel charms – perfect for someone to remember your big day!
We will be attending many other wedding fayres in the coming weeks and our next one is at the Mallory Court Hotel on 11th March. Come and see our great collection of wedding bands as well as jewellery we think is perfect for your special day!
