Ideal Bridal Experience

With it’s central Brisbane location at City Hall, close to some exceptional bridal shopping opportunities and great eateries around Queen Street, the Ideal Bride expo could be the perfect place to get your besties together for some serious planning.

City Hall certainly is a spectacular venue, with it’s cavernous circular chamber lending elegance and old world sophistication to any event. The Ideal Bride team are always welcoming and have invested in state of the art technology to assist your planning, starting with tablet driven registration forms and scannable tickets to enable you to register interest with exhibitors.

There were a wide range of suppliers to choose from, and a real mix of styles, from shabby chic to elegant modern.

Our main interest, of course, was the fashion parade, which kicked off very promptly and presented by the personable Courtney Thorpe, 2014 Miss World Australia. The show featured two of Brisbane’s well known wedding gown designers, Elizabeth de Varga and Jordana Regan, who have featured at MBFF in the past, as well as a several other labels, including JK Couture Designs, Hills in Hollywood and A Formal Affair, in front of a full audience.

The boys livened things up for the crowd with a little bit of personality showing though, but the most applause was reserved for the young children in flower-girl and page-boy outfits.

Styling Love

“Fashion fades, only style remains the same” said icon Coco Chanel, and that is so true when it comes to wedding styling. Your look might have touches of boho, or vintage, or perhaps Gatsby glamour, but the overall style and the feeling it creates will be what people remember. That’s where a Wedding Stylist can be such a benefit by ensuring that all the elements come together in one seemless experience. We so loved our Hamptons inspired stand at the recent Ideal Bride Expo that was created by talented stylist Alysia Bridges of Celebrations by Alysia.
