Bridal Looks Demonstration at Inanch London
Hosted by bridal-parties.net
Date: March 10th
Start your celebrations early, grab your girlies and RSVP to the next bridal planning party in London. More intimate than a national wedding show, you'll receive a complimentary cocktail whilst getting unique and creative ideas to inspire you. With a wealth of suppliers and services showcasing at the events, you're guaranteed to get great contacts for the big day.
This month's party is at Inanch London, the prestigious hair and beauty salon, situated at Great Portland Street. Their top stylists will be on hand to provide demonstrations on how to achieve three bridal “looks” of the season. There will also be the opportunity for one-to-one consultations so you can get personalised advice for your bridal look.
And if that wasn't fabulous enough, you can take advantage of an exclusive sample sale of veils and hair accessories – saving you up to 50% of the retail price. How's that for a bridal bargain? Places are very limited so click here to r.s.v.p and secure yours.
