This is your first chance (in 2023, anyway) to meet and mingle with all the vendors you need to book to make the big day incredible. Sample food prepared by New York City catering services. Explore aisles of exciting entertainment options, floral trends, wedding gown designs, get honeymoon ideas, and more!
At this year’s show, there will also be giveaways, attendee prizes, a live orchestra, and some of the wedding industry’s BEST DJs.
What to Expect at a Bridal Show
Chances are if you’ve never planned a wedding before, for yourself or someone else, you might not be familiar with how bridal shows work. They are great places to sample and meet a variety of vendors you might normally have on your radar. And that alone can be overwhelming.
You can also get inspiration about the wedding ceremony and reception themes, dress designs, and all the latest wedding party hairstyles. Bring your notes and take lots of photos of ideas you love.
It’s best to attend a bridal show with at least one, if not a few, of your besties. They can help you keep track of what you need to look for, which vendors you want to connect with later, and all those trends.
So, come January, if you or someone you know has a fresh diamond on that ring finger, make sure you get to The Great Bridal Expo NYC.
