NEC National Wedding Show – More tips

National Wedding Show

Well, it was only about 3 weeks ago that the National Wedding Show was setting up at London Olympia and we featured some tips and tricks on travelling their and planning your big day.

This weekend the National Wedding Show is heading from London up the M6 to the Birmingham NEC.  The travel tips and parking advice dont really apply this time around because the NEC is a dedicated exhibition centre unlike the congested surroundings of Olympia.  That means there is oodles of parking and there are signposts from every direction into Birmingham.  The NEC is so big there will always be room in one of the satellite car parks and convenient free shuttle buses carry you to the appropriate exhibition hall.  Its a big like the brummie answer to Disney World.

If you are planning a trip to the NEC wedding show then it can be worth checking out what else is on at the NEC at the same time because you can make a weekend of it and there are several hotels on site.  When I went last year the Craft hobby and stitch exhibition was running at the same time which I suppose may not be of great interest unless you thinking of making your own invites.  I could have rounded the Sunday evening up by seeing the Killers in concert.  If only I had planned earlier and got the tickets because just as we were leaving the wedding show all the Killers fans were making their way into the indoor arena next door.

Although parking is excellent, dont forget that Air and Rail links are very easy.  Birmingham International Airport is a few minutes from the NEC and is a viable option these days with cheap budget airline costs and rising petrol prices if you have some miles to cover.  Birmingham train station is only a footbridge away from the NEC and is only 90 mins if travelling from London.
