This weekend will see over 30 local businesses take part in the town’s first Wedding Trail.
The Wedding Trail has been organised by a number of local business owners and aims to showcase the variety of wedding services that the town has to offer by allowing future brides and grooms to see the services that are available.
The event will take place across the town centre and the Wynnstay Arms from Friday 24th January to Sunday 26th January. The trail will take place from 11am – 3pm each day and is free to attend.
Over the three days, the Trail will take brides through the town and to a number of stores that can assist with their special day, including hairdressers, cake makers, florists and wedding boutiques.
Over 30 businesses are taking part, on Grosvenor Road, Town Hill, Hope Street, High Street, Butchers’ Market, Yorke Street, Chester Street and Charles Street, as well as at the Wynnstay Arms.
Many of the business taking part are also offering special discounts, vouchers, treats and freebies over the course of the weekend. Brochures will also be provided on the day with more information for the brides.
One of the organisers of the Trail is Laura Evison from Regent House of Flowers, who has described the event as ‘very unique’. Laura added: “There is a lot of variety available in the town, and this event shows a lot of the options. Nobody is doing this for any profit.”
The idea behind the Wedding Trail came about after a number of businesses in the town held a meeting to discuss ways to encourage people into Wrexham.
It was decided that rather hold a conventional Wedding Fayre, where everything is under one roof, a Wedding Trail that would allow the brides and grooms to visit the stores personally would be a good idea.
Laura said: “People are quick to run the town down, but hopefully this will help, as people are putting 110% effort in. The Council have been brilliant with the event. Ruth Rees from Martin Rees the Jewellers, Isobel Garner and Colin Jones have all got a lot of the major work done.
It is hoped that a similar event can be held in the future if this weekend’s Wedding Trail is a success.
