Our Next Wedding Show - November 4, 2012

We’re delighted to announce our next bridal show in Pasadena, California on November 4.  Because the response from our vendors has been so great, we’re really excited about welcoming all of your happy couples and blushing brides-to-be through our doors!


We think our shows are a cut above the rest because they are so interactive.  Do you want to taste some wedding cake samples?  Try a makeover?  Or have a few photographs taken?  No problem!  We believe that keeping you entertained and offering you lots of great experiences with our exhibitors are the key to giving our brides exactly what they’re looking for.

For inspiration for your wedding outfits, you can check out our fashion show, where we’ll cover ideas for you, the bridesmaids and mothers of the bride and groom.  You can also get free advice at our Ask The Expert seminars to get hints and tips to make your wedding day perfect.

The guys won’t be bored either as we have a separate section for the grooms at every event.

We make it as easy as possible to come and join us.  You can book tickets online at the amazing price of $4 each or just turn up on the day.  We’ll be waiting to welcome you at the Hilton Hotel.  

How to Entertain a Diverse Wedding Crowd

When it comes to entertaining your wedding guests, there’s a tricky balance to achieve because of the wide age range.  It’s quite a feat to keep the children and the seniors equally entertained.

Here are a few tips that will help you pull it off:

For the young guests

  • Consider having a separate table for the children and decorate it brightly.  Use paper tablecloths and let them draw on them with colored pencils or crayons.
  • Alternatively, hang bags of little toys and games on the backs of their chairs so that they’ll be kept occupied.
  • If you’re having an outdoors reception and a few of your guests are particularly obliging, you could organize a treasure hunt.
  • You could section off a part of the reception area for face painting or a balloon artist – so long as it’s not something that is particularly loud.

For the older guests

  • When you’re compiling your playlist, insert some classics from the 1950s and 60s.  If you choose well, everyone will love the songs.
  • Set aside some comfortable seating for elderly guests to use when they want to have a chat, and make sure you spend a little time talking to them rather than constantly dancing with your more active guests.
  • Having an entertainments night rather than a full night of dancing is a great idea.  You could have spots for a casino, magician or professional dancers to mix things up.

Our bridal shows bring together several innovative vendors who can solve your entertainment problems.  Please check out our 2013 dates by clicking here.
