The National Wedding Show is one of the biggest bridal events in the UK. Our wedding expert Hayley is fresh back from the London event and brings you key looks and trends.
With a show stopping catwalk and an amazing collection of exhibitors, The National Wedding Show is the place to help you plan your special day. I was lucky enough to visit this year’s London show, where braids ruled supreme, alongside soft smokey eyes and rosy cheeks.
If you’re a bride to be this is an event not to be missed, housing everything from lingerie, hair accessories and wedding rings right through to the honeymoon! Over in the exclusive VIP suite were makeup and hair classes by Revlon, with free bubbly and (of course) your very own seats at the amazing catwalk show.
Naturally fashion was first on my list – bows are very on trend this season, after seeing them appear on the Oscar de la Renta 2017 New York bridal fashion week runway. I’m loving this Bow Bounce Dress by Poppy Dover:
Illusion dresses are still a big hit this season, I loved these styles seen on the Revlon runway by Pronovias and Maggie Sottero Designs:
Backstage beauty from Revlon
With Revlon sponsoring The National Wedding Show, there was an emphasis on perfect hair and makeup. Pretty braids, and curls pinned into a cute ponytail hit the runway this spring.
HOW TO: If you want to try the look yourself, or send the idea to your wedding hair stylist, this tutorial is very similar to the looks I spotted:

The models wore very soft smoky eye and liquid liner to enhance their eyes with rosy shimmer cheeks. Lips were enhanced with soft peach lipstick or lip gloss. We’ve picked our favourite Revlon products at allbeauty.
