Shop local for your wedding-day needs

Businesses in Ilkeston will come together at an event next month aimed at encouraging people to shop local for all their wedding needs.

The event called the Ilkeston Wedding Directory will be held at Bride Daze on Station Road on Thursday August 15. The event is invite only with a view to doing more events in the future.

Nicola Williams, who makes jewellery to sell at the shop, said: “Because we are all struggling in Ilkeston we decided to get something together for Ilkeston called the Ilkeston Wedding Directory. People can come to us instead of having to go to Derby.”

The event will include a Scottish piper, a sweet stand and make-up artist.
