Wedding Fayre- Hallmark Hotel Sunday 5th September 2010


Held at The Hallmark Hotel in Bournemouth this Wedding Fayre which was promoted by Heart FM and organised by Bellissimo was a great success with lots of newly engaged couples coming to visit our carefully selected choice of suppliers from the local area.
From cupcakes to wedding cars, hair stylists to florists the Hallmark had a delightful selection of suppliers for couples and their families to meet and greet and chat about their wedding plans.
The stunning bridal gowns which were showcased at two fashion shows throughout the day were provided by  Bliss Bridal Boutique  in Christchurch and the gorgeous mens formal attire was provided by Well Groomed in Ashley Road Parkstone.   Michelle from Bliss Bridal has recently opened a stunning boutique in Christchurch stocking beautiful Bridal Gowns, Bridesmaids dresses, prom and bridal accessories absolutely everything you need to look stunning on your Big Day. The lovely ladies from Well Groomed kitted out our male models in their suits accessorized with different coloured waistcoats and cravats  – its the perfect place to visit to get all your suits and accessories to dress your handsome man for the big day!

Each of the fashion shows were accompanied by the wonderful voice of Ed Hailwood who sang a few Sinatra numbers before the show started with a stunning performance by the dance teachers and champion ballroom dancers Andrey and Alexandra from Dancezone. If you are a little bit scared about your first dance Dancezone is the best place to visit to learn a few moves to impress your guests with the help of Andrey and Alexandra! and Ed is the perfect choice of entertainment at your Wedding singing songs from Sinatra to modern day Michael Buble and was very much enjoyed by our guests on the day.

  2. Wedding FavorsPersonalized

    Ribbon Great Tip – make
    sure when you order personalized ribbons, that it is double faced beaded edge

    ribbon 3/8th inch or 5/8 inch. That means the
    ribbon is shiny on both sides of the ribbon and won’t fray at the edges when
    cut. It can be cost effective to use by the roll uncut also. Good luck!
