The Chicago Wedding Expo Calendar
Wedding expos and bridal shows are a great way to gather inspiration for your big day. From venues to music, from catering to bars, and everything in between, you’ll have a great time exploring your options. You’ll actually get the touch the fabrics, see the decorations in person, and browse portfolios from designers and photographers. It’s the best way to get a clear idea of what you want from the happiest day of your life.
That might seem like a lot of pressure to load up onto your visit, especially if you haven’t been to a bridal expo before. The multitude of choices and options presented to you might leave you overwhelmed. But you can go in prepared and come out feeling great about your wedding planning and everything that is to come in the future. We have lots of articles all over our site to help you make your trip to the bridal show the most productive, helpful part of your pre-wedding experience!
Nervous about heading to the expo? Is this your first time attending a Chicago bridal show? Don't worry! Our 101 Bridal Show Tips has got you covered. From prepping your purse to who to bring as your squad (spoiler: don’t bring the whole squad), all the way through saying goodbye to the vendors, our post contains everything you need to know when attending your first wedding show. Get your mind right and come out with everything you need, all organized, so you’re ready to conquer your next steps in your wedding plan.
Going to the wedding expo is an awesome place to start, so put it at the top of your checklist! Everything will feel easier once you’ve gone and spoken with the experts, seen some vendors in person, and gotten the inspiration you need to make your big day truly wonderful. The internet can make it seem like it’s easiest just to stay at home and search through things, but really, seeing a dress or a piece of decor online is not going to tell you how it will feel to see it and touch it in person. Plus, the expo might make questions or ideas pop into your head that you never thought of before, and you’ll have up to two hundred experts on hand to help you talk out your ideas and try on new ones!
Our Chicago Wedding Expo calendar is updated daily and features several bridal events for you and your betrothed. We also provide the Chicago wedding show list by region, so you can check out the expos that are nearest you. Our goal is to make it easy to find and attend all the bridal shows in your area, so you can make your special day the absolute best day you’ve ever had. The wonderful thing about bridal shows and wedding expos is that they’re so fun and informative that if you go to one, you’re almost sure to find something to improve your whole wedding experience!
Each bridal expo listing includes contact information for the event promoter, so you can reach out for additional information. Feel free to ask about vendor’s fees, show hours, and admissions prices, everything that comes to mind. Talking to the promoter before the event can help you feel prepared and at ease. You’ll want to have a plan going into the event, so definitely contact the promoter if you have any questions!
Bridal shows and wedding expos are only partially about the products on sale or the services being offered. They’re also about making relationships and getting to know the people who might make your big day the most magical of your life. So please, always reach out to any promoter or vendor with any questions or thoughts you may have for them! They love a chance to talk to the expo attendees, so don’t be bashful.
