Oxford wedding fairs can be a bit hit and miss if I’m honest, so I’ve created this post to tell you about the one’s I think are pretty cool and some of which I’ll be attending.

The great thing about wedding fairs is that they can be a great place to start when you are planning your wedding.  You can do a spot of research on local suppliers, meet someone you may have been following on social media, and explore new ideas of what to have and what not to have on your day.

Spring 2019 – more of a head up to watch this space… The Perch is one of my favourite wedding venues, (find out their secret for being such a relaxed venue over at The Perch Inn Oxford) Be sure to follow their social media and keep an eye on when they announce their very own wedding fair.

So that’s my thoughts on the up and coming Oxford wedding fairs… let me know if you are going to any so we can say hello to each other.  I couldn’t write a blog post about wedding fairs and not mention EWE  – the most mind blowing alternative wedding fair out there, taking place in Birmingham, and also the very cool Most Curious Wedding Fair which is in London.  If you come across any others during your wedding planning please do share the love with me.  I love hearing about new venues and suppliers.
