The Wedding Journal Show took place at the Citywest Convention Centre in Dublin at the weekend and a fantastic time was had by everyone who came along!
The Citywest was abuzz with life as brides and grooms to-be came from all over Ireland to meet our hundred’s of expert exhibitors, view the latest 2019 catwalk trends and get their wedding planning under way.

Whether exhibitor or visitor, it seems that everyone had a great time at our Autumn Wedding Journal Show. Here are a few of our highlights…
Our new, improved VIP was there to welcome our VIP guests with special reserved front row seating right in from of the main catwalk stage. Here, our lucky guests sipped on prosecco, indulged on sweet treats and relaxed in the luxurious furnishings after a hectic day of wedding planning! All VIP holders were also the lucky owners of a €45 goodie bag with quality health and beauty products from big name brands such as NOTE cosmetics, Barry M Cosmetics, Skinician, Lindt Chocolate, Inglot, Suu Balm and Right Guard!
