The Borders Wedding show, Kelso.
I had a fantastic time at the Borders Wedding Show in Kelso yesterday. The show happens annually and this year attracted over 70 fantastic local suppliers from across the Scottish Borders.
As always, I took my crew - Mum (glamorous show assistant) and boyfriend (top grafter) to help out. It used to take 5 hours to set up and now we're down to 1 - dream team!
I love attending wedding shows for so many reasons. Firstly, it's brilliant to meet new and excited couples and hear their engagement/wedding planning stories. There were some real characters yesterday! So many people picked up items and exclaimed how good they felt. From textured card to velvet and matt finishes - nothing beats seeing a design in real life as oppose to online.
(Remember, UK samples are free so if you can't make a show, please get in touch!)
Secondly, it's a brilliant chance to meet fellow suppliers. I work alone, as do many others, and it's nice to share experiences with fellow freelancers. It's also an invaluable opportunity to make business connections and better still - friendships!
The show was so busy I didn't manage to get around as many stands as I'd like but here are some of my favourites 😁
Top - Thirsty Stag mobile bar, Storm in a teacup, Get knotted
Bottom - Dorota's Wonder Cakes, Sitting Pretty event decor, my family! (complete with jumpers to match the dog)
Struggling with your stand? I designed the show boards behind mine and as mentioned, they are so quick and easy to put up! If you're interested in new exhibition graphics (or any kind of business branding) please get in touch with me via my business design company! K Graphic Design
