Plan the Perfect Father-of-the-Bride-Friendly Winchester day out with HBBS & The Nostalgic Wedding Fair
So Sunday 16th June is shaping up to be a pretty special day - not only is it Father's Day, but also, the beautiful city of Winchester is playing host to two very special wedding events. What could be better than a celebratory morning with the dutiful Father-of-the-Bride, followed by an afternoon of the town's treasures and culinary delights?
In our previous post, 'Where to take your Dad in Winchester after the Bridal Boot Sale (it is Fathers Day after all!)', we mentioned some of our favourite Winchester hang outs. Here though, we focus on the all important events taking place on Sunday 16th. Not only is the next edition of the Hampshire Bridal Boot Sale on at Milner Hall, St Peter Street, but also (new to Winchester, new for organisers The Vintage Parade) is The Nostalgic Wedding Fair.
The Nostalgic Wedding Fair have collaborated with a crew of wedding specialists to capture the essence of vintage, nostalgia and alternative options for those blushing brides.
The fair is curated to ensure quality and diverse products are provided at each event, with a variety of hand picked exhibitors for you. They have found fabulously retro sepia hued photographers, quirky quaint stationers, indulgent wedding cakes, blossomed bouquets and vintage styled dresses, accessories .....plus so much more!
After picking up those perfect finishing touches from the Bridal Boot Sale's creative newly-weds and top tips from our expert suppliers, why not head on down to The Nostalgic Wedding Fair at Winchester Guildhall, transformed into a hive of eclectic, beautiful, fashionable and vintage wedding utopia. There will also be live vintage performers, a beauty parlour, vintage ice cream van and all the trimmings for you to enjoy. Plus, come along to see the Burlesque show to spice up your hen party or two vintage themed entertainers and vintage themed dancers to demonstrate to prospective couples some 'vintage' dance moves.
The Hampshire Bridal Boot Sale is on 10am - 1pm, while The Nostalgic Wedding Fair is on 11am – 3pm.
Check out our handy map with both events and top picks to take your loved ones in Winchester on Sunday 16th June - perfect!
