The Delaware Wedding Expo Calendar
Delaware is a state that is passionate about independence and personal expression.
On your special day, you want to show your own independent spirit and select the best for your wedding so it feels uniquely you.
But you need to see what’s out there before you can decide what matches you and what you like. The Delaware wedding expos and bridal shows will give you a chance to browse local, regional, and national vendors and experts.
You will learn from their ideas and incorporate it all into your own beautiful, momentous event. Even if you don’t purchase from a vendor, they’ll often offer expert advice or give you the link to their blog or website, so you can learn from them even after the expo is over.
Many vendors set up samples or portfolios so you can touch or eat or see their products in person. Make sure you take a chance to look through these portfolios or samples.
The portfolios will have beautiful pictures in the area. See what you like. What you’re drawn to in these portfolios are what you should think about for your own wedding!
Use these events as your time to check out what a Riverfront wedding would look like, either on the beach itself or in one of the several beautiful parks in the area. Plus, if you go to an expo near the Riverfront area, afterwards you can hit up the great restaurants and scope out the venues in person!
Ask questions of the local experts, such as: can you have a wedding in First State Heritage Park in Dover?
Get an idea of what the venue and product prices are like in your specific area. Delaware has some of the coolest venue options, with original and special ideas for your wedding, like a museum, a wildlife heritage park, historic houses, or even an iconic lighthouse.
Imagine descending the sea-hardened steps of a stately historic lighthouse, and then saying “I do” on the beach under the guiding ray of its rotating spotlight. This scene would be a beautiful way to start your marriage off, with a guiding light to take you into the safe harbor of each other’s love. How do you pull this kind of wedding, though? The local vendors and national experts at the Delaware bridal show can help you figure it out.
The seaside also has a number of beautiful resorts, any of which would be a great option for your wedding. But you probably don’t want to wander to every venue in the state just to see if it will work for you. Talking to the exhibitors at the expo will help you browse the state’s options without having to drive every highway!
The experts can also help you pick the best time of year for the kind of wedding you are hoping to have in Delaware. The vendors at the Delaware bridal expo will know all the intricacies of the state’s social calendar, such as the Beach Chocolate Festival, the Independent Film Festival, and the many jazz festivals. Whether you are looking to coincide with the festival or specifically hoping to not coincide and pick a less busy time of year for less competition for your dream venue, this choice can greatly change your wedding timing and plans.
A local vendor, available at a Delaware bridal expo, will help you make these big decisions with their specialized state knowledge, while also providing inspiration you could use in your own dream wedding.
Delaware is also a great location for weddings because of how close it is to several major cities and states and how popular it is for visits and travel from other New England states. In fact, Delaware makes around $3 billion a year from tourism, mostly from nearby states and cities. So if you have family and friends in the surrounding New England and Atlantic Coast region, they have likely visited and loved Delaware before. This makes it an all the more perfect location for you to start gathering wedding inspiration.
Vendors can often recommend cool, unique venues, like The Queen Wilmington Music Hall. Built in 1781, it gives both a historic and an edgy vibe to your event. You could also do one of Delaware’s historic museums or libraries. Local vendors and wedding planners at the Delaware bridal expos can give you tips on the best times of year to go for these venues.
Once you’ve read through or visited the expos on this list, check out the list for nearby states! Being near so many cool places gives you even more options for bridal shows to visit, experience, and be inspired by.
