There’s no shortage of wedding inspiration at this year’s Wonderful Wedding Show, especially with the beautiful new venue expansion. The show now spans over two city blocks, taking over the entire third floor for a total of 130,000 square feet of everything wedding.
The 27th annual Wonderful Wedding Show has a fresh new look this year, featuring the entire show on one floor of the newly expanded RBC Convention Centre.
“We’re very excited for this year’s Wonderful Wedding Show,” says Sherri Rheubottom, Show Manager. “The show has been spread out onto three floors for the past several years, so having the show entirely on one floor this year will definitely make our production logistics easier and attendees will find navigating throughout the show seamless.”
Some of the benefits of the additional space include the newly expanded 2,500 sq ft Inspiration Gallery positioned in the heart of the show. “Our show features the city’s most talented wedding professionals and this year’s new Inspiration Gallery gives our vendors a chance to showcase some show-stopping, over-the-top designs to give brides endless inspiration for their own wedding.”
And speaking of show-stopping, the show’s wow factor continues in this year’s new “Crème de la Crème” Brides Lounge and Wedding Trends Showcase, featuring exquisite tablescape designs and special lounge area for brides to relax and enjoy free wine sampling during the show. “This year’s Brides Lounge inspiration is designed by Events by Emma along with a team of top wedding industry experts so get ready to be wowed,” says Sherri. “We want the show to be a fun experience so this year the Brides Lounge will even feature live performances by Danny Kramer Dance Band, so brides can take a break during the show with a glass of wine and great music.” Guys will be equally pampered in the newly expanded Eph Grooms Lounge where they can watch TV and enjoy some beverages.
Of course the headliner of the show is the daily fashion shows, showcasing the latest bridal fashion trends from the city’s leading retailers. This year’s “Destination Love” fashion show will take couples on a romantic journey around the world.
Couples will also have a chance to win lots of prizes including a $20,000 Dream Wedding at the Viscount Gort Hotel, a Dream Honeymoon courtesy of SellOffVacations, a Sensational Sound Deluxe Sound & Lighting Package, plus all tickets purchased online before the show will be entered to win a trip for two to Cancun Mexico compliments of LA Travel Group.
