JUST FOR VENUES

Participating in the January 7th & 8th WEDDING EXPO

 

Something new  just for VENUES  . Two weeks after the show (1/22/23), you can participate in our VENUE TOUR OPEN HOUSE for all brides and guests who attended our Wedding Expo.

Brides & Guests can sign up to VISIT your venue. There is NO COST to you, other than hosting an OPEN HOUSE for a 2-hr. time frame. In the past, we've heard from some venues that because brides don't book at the show, that a bridal show or wedding expo is not a profitable experience. We're changing that! And when the brides VISIT your venue they earn an ADDITIONAL entry to our $10,000 Wedding Giveaway!    So - more incentive to connect.

REGISTER HERE to JOIN US for the Jan. 7th and 8th Event

(Plus you can pay a deposit for our additional shows as well.)
