I am proud to say that I have been a blushing bride and although I love my husband dearly, I must be honest it was a stressful time! Was he familiar with the colour sashes we had chosen to go with our linen? Not at all! Did he know which favours would complement our theme? Of course not! Did I panic as I had no idea what I was doing? Yes definitely, but fortunately my matron of honour suggested a wedding fair.
To those of you who have never had the chance to attend one, it is all your wedding needs wrapped up in one place. It pretty much covers everything; from wedding cakes and flowers to cars and honeymoons.
I had no idea what to expect, but what a showcase it was, every room set up with endless wedding possibilities. I fell in love with so many ideas and wanted everything at my wedding… I mean everything.
I was given a tray of strawberries along with a glass of prosecco and nearly forgot to move on but time was of the essence, and there was a lot to see. I am pleased to be able to report that most of the designs and ideas that I saw that day ended up being a part of our wedding day.
A Decision to Last a Lifetime
Now, why is this personal anecdote relevant I hear you say? Well, I now visit wedding fairs every year with Burrells! I work in the Tunbridge Wells store, and we have been attending them for the last few years, bringing with us beautiful rings, knowledge, experience, and of course chocolates!
We love meeting couples and hearing all about their engagement stories. It's amazing spending time helping them to find the perfect rings. Our friendly expert team are on hand to help couples try on as many different rings as they like.
We believe that this is the longest-lasting decision you will make when planning your big day. After the wedding, when the dust settles, and the hangovers have vanished, your wedding rings are the one part of your ceremony that you will both see every day for the rest of your lives; a stunning reminder of your wedding day and love for each other.
The Burrells Wedding Fair
As we have experienced so much enjoyment over the years visiting wedding fairs, it got us thinking - why don't we create our own Burrells wedding fair! We still attend the big shows, but we thought it would be nice to hold smaller ones in our stores, so that we can showcase our entire wedding ring collection and other great local wedding businesses at the same time.
So, for one week every year in March or April, we transform our stores with beautiful wedding decor and choose a selection of local wedding companies, offering everything wedding related, from dresses and flowers to makeup and hair. We sometimes even have wedding cakes for you to sample!
A Well-Curated Edit
The buzz of a wedding fair is truly inspiring, and I do recommend that you visit one of the big shows. However, the experience can be overwhelming, when you see all the stands and realise how much there is to organise for the big day!
With our Burrells wedding fair, we do the research for you, by rounding up the best wedding companies in our local areas. Our well-curated edit makes for a relaxed and enjoyable experience. You can enjoy a crisp glass of prosecco while you have a look around and when it comes to wedding rings, our friendly, knowledgeable team will make every effort to reach the ultimate goal of helping you select your perfect wedding rings.
Nothing is too much to ask, and although we hold an excellent selection of styles, we are also proud to offer a bespoke service if we don’t have what you had in mind. Why not visit the big shows with your girlfriends and bridal party and save the ultra-important part of choosing your wedding bands for a quiet, comfortable setting with your intended at Burrells?

We want your big day to be perfect, and we love to help in any way we can. If you would like to find out which wedding shows we’re attending this year and when the Burrells wedding fairs are, please contact us here.
