You’ve seen us posting all over social media about our upcoming Richmond Wedding Expo at Altria Theater, but you might be thinking, “Why do I need to go to a bridal show?” or “That doesn’t sound like a fun way to spend my Sunday.” We get that, but we think we can change your minds! It’s the BEST way to spend a Sunday when you’re trying to plan a wedding!
Attending a bridal show is a smart way to spend a little time with a lot of different vendors. At our Expo on Sunday, July 19th, we’ll have over 100 vendors for you to chat with. You can ask any questions, set up meetings and just see who you click with. Plus, there will be some excellent food and sweets to sample!
Here are some smart reasons to attend the Richmond Wedding Expo!
1) You get to check out the stunning venue that is Altria Theater!
We are beyond excited to host our Expo at Altria Theater for the first time EVER! Every time we bring someone in who hasn’t seen the space before, we hear lots of ohhs and ahhs! It’s gorgeous, and it’s also HUGE! We cannot wait for brides, grooms and their entourages to see this gem!
2) Meet Richmond wedding vendors
From cake makers to event planners to beautiful wedding gowns and photographers, you have the opportunity to speak directly to the people you will work with and learn more about all the amazing products and services they offer. We will have over 100 vendors exhibiting, and you can find the list of those vendors here.
3) Get great deals
Show-only specials and discounts are offered by many wedding vendors at the Richmond Wedding Expo. One very special discount might be enough for you to afford the more expensive flowers you wanted for your wedding!
4) Wedding ideas and tips
Creativity rules at the Richmond Wedding Expo, and this year is no exception. Looking for some delicious and beautiful dessert ideas? Looking for unique bridal attendee gifts? Want to have your own logo for the big event that you can also use as husband and wife? You’ll find all these amazing ideas for your wedding at the Expo.
5) The Fashion Show!
This year, we will have a seat for EVERYONE who wants to watch the fashion show sponsored by Tiffanys Bridal and the Groom’s Corner! The show will take place on the stage of Altria where there are over 3,000 seats. You’ll have to get in quick to get a close spot, but there will be space for everyone!! Tiffanys always puts on a great show, and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for us this year!
Bonus! Free Gifts!
Every bride who comes to the show this Sunday will receive a FREE copy of Richmond Weddings magazine hot off the press! We’re extra excited because a) it’s our 50th issue and b) we worked on a very special cover this issue! Plus, each bride will also have a chance to win a door prize (valued at $50 or more!) from one of our 100+ vendors. That’s a lot of chances to win!
Remember, the show starts Sunday, July 19th at 11:30AM at Altria Theater! To see more details and to register, click here.
