What is a Pink Bride Wedding Show?

The Pink Bride Wedding Show is a bit like a “wedding mall,” where everything you need for your big day can be selected and booked during the show. From photography to tuxedo options and everything in between, you’ll find what you need during a Pink Bride Wedding Show!

Every wedding professional gets a “corner” booth space to fill with samples of their work and chat with you, all without being in a crowded row of professionals. With a Pink Bride Wedding Show, you won’t be funneled into a line of engaged couples waiting to meet each professional. Rather, you get to walk around leisurely and visit the wedding pros of your choosing, within your own timeframe during the show.

By attending a Pink Bride Wedding Show, you can be sure that you’re booking professionals who are in-demand within the local wedding scene. You can plan your dream wedding in one day and save big by getting in on exclusive show-only specials by attending a Pink Bride Wedding Show!

Prepare for success before you attend a Pink Bride Wedding Show.

Get yourself into wedding-planning mode with a little prep work ahead of time!

  • Create a wedding-only email address to register with. This keeps you from wading through tons of wedding-related emails long after the big day!
  • Download BrideScan on your mobile device before the show to connect seamlessly with wedding pros throughout the event.
  • Consider downloading Parking Panda on your mobile device to assist with parking for Pink Bride Wedding Shows in urban areas.
  • Know your wedding date and approximate budget so you can book vendors during the show. (Remember – these pros get booked up quickly!)
  • Arrive with a list of wedding pros you still need for your day. Note who specifically you want to meet during the show! There will be floor maps strategically placed around the show floor that shows you exactly where each pro is within the show, so your time is spent exactly where you need it to be.
  • Check out who will be there ahead of time! Visit the local Pink Bride Wedding Show page for a list of advertisers you’ll meet during the show.
  • Watch for the list of exclusive show-only specials posted the Wednesday before each show on our blog! You could save thousands of dollars by taking advantage of these limited-time offers, only available to show attendees.

Dress is generally casual for Pink Bride Wedding Shows, with most attendees wearing t-shirts and jeans. Wear comfortable shoes! You’ll easily spend 2-3 hours at our events, and while ample seating is always available around the fashion show stage for a short rest, you’ll likely spend most of that time up walking around.
