If you’re planning a wedding in 2014, the National Bridal Show is a must-attend event for you. The show is a comprehensive guide to the latest trends in everything to do with weddings. Check out what’s hot in wedding fashion accessories, flower design, and cakes and learn all you need to know about wedding registries, choosing the best DJs, or managing transportation. The National Bridal Show will help you with all the essentials that will make your big day unique and special. Most exhibitors also offer their services right on the spot, so you could even end up contracting everyone you need within the two days of the show (often with enticing discounts).
Besides shopping opportunities, visitors can meet a variety of important trendsetters from the bridal industry, including Canada’s top wedding planners, dress designers, florists, decorators, cake designers, and wedding venue representatives. Organizers have also announced that Jane Dayus-Hinch, a popular and expert wedding planner and host of the Wedding SOS series, will make an appearance at the show. Visitors will even have a chance to win her services for their own wedding. You can also enter a contest to win the $5,000 Home Décor Prize Package by the Bay, Canada’s biggest gift registry, or just hope to get lucky at one of the numerous draws and giveaways at the show.
