Wedding Events

Around Chicago, there are a plethora of wedding events every single weekend. Bridal shows, trunk shows, and vendor sales are just a few. If it’s related to marriage, there’s a show for it—simple as that. Why would you want to go to one of these events? To touch and feel and get ideas!

Bridal Shows

Chicago wedding shows provide the opportunity to meet many types of wedding professionals and gather information about them in a casual and informative setting. You can ask questions, sample food and beverages, get special offers and even book appointments with professionals you like. Quite often there is also a couture fashion show allowing you to see designer gowns on the runway.

Trunk Shows

Trunk shows are designer specific events often at local bridal salons showcasing a designer’s entire line of gowns, headpieces or jewelry. These shows are traveling, so they come to the store for only a few days bringing the entire line for you to view and try on.

Vendor Sales

Everyone love a deal! We try to share when wedding vendors have sales. These may be close-out sales or specials for a specific time period. Keep checking back as we continue to update and add these events.
