Following my disastrous experience at the Cannes wedding fair last year, I have decided to give ‘Lune de Miel’ one last go. I figure that the Acropolis being a much larger, more prestigious venue compared to Palm Beach in Cannes, that the overall quality of the wedding show might be better, I certainly hope so anyway!

If you like me are at a bit of a loose end this weekend and live near Nice, you might want to drop by the Lune de Miel wedding fair at the Acropolis. More more information about the Nice ‘Lune de Miel’ wedding fair, you can take a look at the article I have just this minute written for Riviera based online magazine FR2DAY.

I have just literally got back from a few hours spent at a wedding fair in Cannes held at Palm Beach and felt compelled to write a post about it straight away. If you are thinking about going I would strongly suggest that you not bother to be honest. Thank goodness I only spent 8 Euros because any more and I would have asked for a refund. I was practically insulted by a lady from one popular wedding venue, must be an English-French thing. If you are trying to learn French then you will no doubt have come across the type of person who likes to pretend that they don’t understand you because of your English accent and makes you feel like a total idiot. I studied the language at university, have lived in France for 3 years and have a French boyfriend so I know I can speak pretty well, she was totally just doing it to me mean!

Some of the stands were so incredibly cheesy it made me want to laugh out loud and others were manned by surly hostesses who looked bored and unapproachable. The caterers were not offering taste tests and the wedding dresses being modelled were very dated.

One good thing did come out of it for me however; I got to make a contact at a fantastic new Cup Cake supplier based in Golf Juan: I will be adding Cup Cakes Blvd. to the suppliers section of My Riviera Wedding very shortly.

Just in case you still want to go, the Lune de Miel wedding fair is on tomorrow too from 10.00 to 19.00 and is priced at 8 Euros for the day. To find out more visit

Entry for both fairs is quite reasonable at 8 Euros on the door or 6 Euros if booked via their website. I intend to visit both and will share feedback on afterwards.
