The Designer Vintage Wedding Show is Back!


One of the most glamorous events of the past year was the inaugural ‘Designer Vintage Wedding Show’ that was held in Birmingham‘s Beautiful Highbury Hall. This event was an amazing success that was just crying out to be repeated. Well, I am happy to report that The DVB Show is BACK.

Clear your diaries for the weekend of the 8th to 9th October 2011, This is when the Designer Vintage Wedding Show opens its doors at its new venue, Berrow Court in Birmingham.  There were be treats galore for Brides-to- be to relish, from sumptuous vintage gowns by the likes of Vintage Crocks and Frocks, Lyndsey Fleming Couture and the Wedding Club, Jewellery from the Wonderful Terry Terry,  amazing accessories from the likes of Sharper Millinery and Rachel Simpson shoes and wonderful music from Nero String Quartet. You can spend a whole day wrapped up in pure vintage delight, meeting designers, delighting in a cocktail or afternoon tea, taking time out to watch the catwalk shows of designer gowns and vintage originals and talking to the experts.
