Thousands of brides-to-be expected at Hampden Park for wedding show

Hampden Park stadium, home to the Scotland national football team, is set to welcome thousands of brides-to-be when it hosts Scotland’s Exclusive Wedding Event (SEWE) later this month.

During the two-day event, 5,000 visitors will be treated to catwalk shows and makeovers, while 135 exhibitors will be on hand to showcase everything needed for the dream wedding, from dresses and kilts to flowers and beauty treatments.

“Thousands of people turned out when the event took place here for the first time in February, so we are delighted the organisers have chosen to return,” says Sales and Revenue Manager with Sodexo Prestige at Hampden, Jane Thomson. “While we’re best known as the home of the Scotland football team and for concerts like the summer shows by Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi and Robbie Williams, the stadium is also an ideal place for exhibitions and other events like this.”

SEWE takes place on 24-25 August with exhibitors in the Lomond, Nevis and Millennium Suites on level four of the stadium. Sodexo Prestige staff will also operate a bar and catering area.

Fashion shows will be held twice daily in the auditorium on level two of the stadium, and there will also be a wedding car showcase outside the stadium and a live band showcase.

“This will be our 26th Glasgow show and it is one of Scotland’s largest wedding exhibitions,” says Marlene Cunningham, Director of Eventrix, the company which launched SEWE almost 15 years ago. “The feedback was tremendous from the February show at Hampden, which attracted 5,000 visitors. We are really looking forward to growing the show here in the future.”
