WITH spring around the corner, thoughts are turning to wedding bells and the launch of this season's I Will wedding shows.

Taking place at nine venues across the region, the exhibitions are the best place for budding brides and grooms to access a vast array of specialist companies and services under one roof.

The spring season of shows begins on Sunday, February 2 at Stourport Manor in Stourport-on-Severn.

Exhibitors will be displaying wedding essentials such as gowns, cars and cake, as well as elements such as stationery, music and fireworks.

Visitors can also take the opportunity to view the venue’s own facilities.

A week later comes one of I Will’s most popular shows at the Hilton Hotel in Bromsgrove on Sunday, February 9

The spacious and conveniently-located venue will be packed with everything from flowers and photobooths to balloons and beauty services while exhibitors will be happy to offer expert wedding advice.

On Sunday, February 16, I Will presents an exciting new event at Worcestershire County Cricket Club, taking place in the Graeme Hick Pavilion.

The spring calendar also features a return to the Three Counties Showground in Malvern plus visits to the fairytale Chateau Impney in Droitwich and Studley Castle in the Warwickshire countryside.

Admission to all the exhibitions is free, and there is plenty of parking space at each venue.

Every bride will receive a copy of the glossy I Will magazine and entry into the prize draw to be in with a chance of winning their dream wedding dress from the season’s sponsors, Bridal Boutique of Worcester.

I Will, a division of Newsquest, has been organising wedding shows for more than 25 years and has earned a great reputation for organising well-run events that appeal to visitors and exhibitors alike.
