Read what some of our vendors have to say:

I wanted to tell you how delightful it was to be a vendor at the Dream Wedding Bridal Show at The Christy last Sunday.  We have been a vendor at four Wedding shows this month and this show was by far our favorite.  We felt this event wasn’t all about the Brides, we also felt it was about us.  We felt appreciated as vendors and it was very nice.  We will definitely do again!  Thanks so much.  Sherry Newton, Color Street Independent Stylist

This was one of the BEST shows I’ve exhibited in!!! Good job, Carol!!! (Karen Raidy, Karen Raidy Portraits) 

Fabulous show!! Great job.  Carol!!!  Looking forward to the next Wedding show! (Chris Steimel, Marry Me Cottage)

Bride St Louis shows are the only shows I do any more. I always see a good turnout, yet the shows are paced so well that I have time to talk to everyone who stops by my booth. The shows are very reasonably priced so it’s very profitable. I booked a $3000+ wedding at the last show and have booked plenty over the years at various Bride St Louis shows. On top of the reasonable price and good turnout Carol really cares about helping her vendors be successful.  (Patrick Pope, Patrick Pope Photography)

Great show today!  Could not be more impressed. Can’t wait for all the rest!  Thank you.  I’ve gotta give props to you. That’s one of the best shows I’ve been to in years. (John Frew, Few’s Bridal)

The show on Sunday at Dance Pizazz Ballroom was great.  You brought in more brides to your show the other show producer.   I love the new sessions where brides come in two sessions.  We stay busy all day long, and we don’t have just the big rush at the beginning and then nothing.  (Josh Horn, PPE Events)
