Edmonton Bridal Expo is recognized as “Autumn’s biggest and most elegant bridal show.” According to Katherine Lomax, owner of the Expo, the annual occasion “attracts qualified, sophisticated brides who are looking for vendors that are the best at what they do, offer a superb product and service, and do so with integrity and honesty.”
Brides-to-be, who are at the early or final stage of their planning, visit the Expo for the ultimate bridal experience. Breanne spent the day at Edmonton Bridal Expo with her mother and bridesmaids: “It was nice to get some ideas for [my] wedding and now that I have [a list of vendors], I can start my planning!” Even though Stacia had already planned the majority of her wedding with her wedding planner, she also visited the Expo with her mother and bridesmaids. She says that she “was eager to partake in the entire bridal experience, including the attendance of a wedding show.” She equates her experience with the delight of a trip to Disneyland: “Bridal Expo is to brides what Disneyland is to children.” The Expo is definitely the place for brides to find inspiration. This year, Expo hosted celebrity guest Preston Bailey, who launched his new book Flowers—this event was definitely a highlight for brides-to-be and industry members alike.
Blush’s Favourite Booths at Edmonton Bridal Expo 2011
River City Event Rentals: this business selected to display a grand feature table in a well-designed dining room. The long table featured crisp whites awash with opulent blue lighting..
Images by Frost: this company offered the kind of inviting, comfortable, and relaxed environment found in a private living room. The walls on which hung fine art prints reflected the studio’s brand colours.
Social Photo Booths: this was a fun interactive booth designed as a photo booth and it provided a nostalgic product: two strips of photos as perfect mementos of the fun had at the Expo.
Special Event Rentals: this booth was a show stopper right inside the main hall. Inside the large square space, displays revealed how two contrasting concepts, vintage and modern, could work individually or together.
Elegant Touches: this design firm showcased their work in a tented space using “tablescapes” to show a variety of styles and concepts. Fabulous new linen options, along with perfect settings were creatively displayed
