I booked a place for my promotional literature in the goody bags given out to the brides at Your Wedding Show held at the De Vere Grand Brighton this past weekend, so I headed on over to check out the festivities, see what else was on offer, get ideas and meet some of the other vendors. It wasn’t a huge show so there wasn’t necessarily a wide variety within vendor categories – most categories showcased just one vendor while with the exception of photography, for which there were a few more choices, but with all competitors offering fairly traditional-type photos. In all honesty, it would have been nice to see more choices on offer reflecting the growing popularity of modern DIY, vintage, rock-n-roll and other non-traditional wedding trends as evidenced by the skyrocketing status of blogs like Rock-n-Roll Bride, Rock My Wedding and Love My Dress. So many of today’s brides and grooms are obviously looking for more personalized, unique and quirky ways to express their personalities through their weddings. However, even though that diversity was somewhat missing from the show, the really exciting thing is the potential that space leaves to differentiate oneself from other competitors in the market.
