BRIDES-to-be in search of some inspiration for their big day are assured of lots of help and advice on planning their nuptials at this weekend’s Mid-West Bridal Exhibition.

Now in its 16th year, the showcase will take place at the University of Limerick Sports Arena on Saturday and Sunday.

“There are two huge fashion shows each day. I will be doing a style talk on stage and there will be make-up demonstrations as well focusing on various looks. There will be loads of entertainment and you can sit down and have a coffee and some food,” explained Celia Holman Lee who organises the event each year.

“It is a family-run event lead by Limerick people which is myself and the family and we have had massive support year after year from all of the region - the city and the county,” she added.

The event will be open from 12pm to 6pm on both days.

“All the businesses get behind it. It covers everything you can think of in terms of planning a wedding from getting your nails done to booking the honeymoon. There are specialised stands featuring bands, cars, travel agents, florists - you name it!”

The exhibition is particularly popular Celia says, due to the personal touch - people get to meet the stallholders in person.

“It’s also a great day out for brides.”

Entry fee is €10
