Best Bridal Expos Across the U.S.

The Best Bridal Expos in Every State

If you’re engaged, chances are you’ve heard about those infamous bridal expos. Held across the country throughout the year, the shows are one-stop shops for your wedding as they allow you to meet dozens (sometimes hundreds!) of vendors all in one place. The experience is ideal for a number of reasons, but especially because unlike when you’re browsing tons of websites, you’ll get the chance to be face-to-face with actual people and products.

So grab a few of your bridesmaids or your S.O., and prepare to sample cakes, try on dresses, listen to bands and DJs, quiz wedding planners, smell fresh flower bouquets, and much more, because we gathered some of the top bridal expos in the United States. Find your state and a list of 2019 shows below!
