SAVE THE DATE FOR THIS MONTH'S PALACE WEDDING FAIR

Some of the Island’s leading wedding suppliers will be showcasing their talents at the 2013 Palace Wedding Fair.

The event takes place at the 4-star Best Western Palace Hotel and Casino from 1.00pm till 4.00pm on Monday, August 26.

The annual Wedding Fair is an important date for couples planning their big day and takes place in one of the most popular wedding reception locations in the Island.

Exhibitors at the Fair will include Balloons To Go, Embellished Elegance, H. Samuel, Graih My Chree, P.A.O.S Stationary, Platinum Cars, Steve Woodley Photography, The Sefton, AB Photography, Katie’s Beauty Lounge, Boxed Off, Erica Stephenson Make-up, K&B Carriages, The Cake Lady, Matt Mosur Photography, Blue Olive Productions, Manx Disco Services, Loleasa Event Design and Manx Wedding Photos.

Nicola Wilkinson, Sefton Group Marketing Manager, said: ‘We’ve attracted another fantastic range of exhibitors, with some new names joining us this year. The popularity of both the Palace Wedding Fair and the Sefton Wedding Fair, which takes place in February, continues to grow and that’s down to the calibre of exhibitors we are attracting and the fact that both venues remain incredibly popular as wedding venues.

‘What’s also helping is the fact that both hotels are now licensed to stage civil weddings, which means that couples can hold their entire wedding day in just one venue.’

Nicola added: ‘Wedding fairs allow brides and grooms-to-be to meet and talk with suppliers of just about everything they will need for their big day, all under the same roof.’

The event also provides the opportunity for couples to look around the Best Western Palace complex itself, and see what it can offer as a wedding day venue.

As an extra incentive, if a couple book their wedding at the Fair on August 26 – for either the Best Western Palace Hotel or The Sefton – both bride and groom-to-be will receive free membership of the Palace Health Club for 12 months.

Entrance to the Palace Wedding Fair is free. To find out more information, please call 645534.
