Brides Up North is turning your pins into plans

The North West Wedding Fair and Brides Up North are teaming up to offer one VERY lucky bride to be and her guest a fabulous prize – Just show us your pins!

If you’re a regular reader of my wedding blog – Brides Up North – or follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you’ll have seen that I’m just a teeny bit excited to have been invited to act as the Official Blogger for the huge event that is The North West Wedding Fair in a few weeks’ time.

I’ll be blogging here for the team up until the weekend itself, when I’ll be live from the first night of the event of Friday 7th March, giving you a preview of all that lies in store for you lucky visitors (and hosting the official show video – eep!).

When I decided to team up with The North West Wedding Fair, I did so because I liked the company’s ethos and attitude: basically, they want to bring you North West brides one heck of a good show and look after their exhibitors whilst doing it! I’m swept up in the excitement and super, duper thrilled to be able to write this post today. You see, I have something pretty special to share with you as part of the Official Blogger job!

The North West Wedding Fair and Brides Up North are teaming up to offer one VERY lucky bride to be and her guest a fabulous prize! And all you have to do is show me your pins…

Up for grabs are two VIP Experiences at The North West Wedding Fair at Event City, Manchester on 7th March 2014, plus 5 runner up prizes of a standard pair of tickets worth £30.
The VIP Experience includes Fast Track Entry, a Luxury Goody Bag, a Complimentary Glass of Champagne, Reserved Catwalk Seating and Complimentary Premium Ice Cream, plus tickets to the show itself, completely free.

And here’s my icing on the rather lovely cake – the prize includes a wedding brainstorming session with the Official North West Wedding Fair Blogger (that’s me!) at the event itself, and follow up sessions by email to help to turn your pins into plans.

As the editor of Brides Up North – one of the top UK Wedding Blogs and the only blog written for brides in the North of the UK – there’s not much that gets past me in this industry. Whether you are looking for the freshest new ideas, budget advice, supplier introductions, sneaky discounts, insider info and (sometimes) a shoulder to cry on, I’m your woman.

And after the planning is done and the day arrives? I’d love to share your wedding with my readers at Brides Up North in a special Real Wedding feature.

So how can you win this one off, never to be repeated prize? Simple. You know that wedding mood board you’ve been cultivating on Pinterest? All you have to do is share the link to it with me by email at julia@bridesupnorth.co.uk along with 250 words (maximum) introducing yourself, your wedding date and describing your dream wedding.

Don’t worry about sprucing things up either – I want to see what your actual dream wedding would look like! If you are new to Pinterest, it’s really easy to get going too. Create a board and send it my way.

The competition is open now, the closing date is midnight on 4th March 2014, and my decision is final. The winner will be notified by email.

So:

1. Log onto Pinterest and create your board, or share an existing wedding planning board that you’ve already been curating.

2. Send the link to your board to me by email at julia@bridesupnorth.co.uk along with 250 words (maximum) introducing yourself, your wedding date and describing your dream wedding.

3. Win those fabulous prizes if your board is my winner.
