What to Expect From The Original Wedding Expo

Wedding Day Preparations Share this post

Planning a wedding can be exciting and yet very daunting at the same time, which is why The Original Wedding Expo is here to help you make the planning process run smoothly. Since 1979, we have made it our mission to bring together New England couples with local wedding merchants. As our shows grow and become more spectacular, we have put  together a list of things to expect from The Original Wedding Expo  for the 2016-2017 season!

What kind of vendors can I expect?


We have everything from reception halls, gown and tux shops, photographers, florists, catering, bakers, entertainment, honeymoon planning, and more. The Original Wedding Expo strives to hit every aspect of the wedding planning process to ensure everyone finds what they’re looking for!


Will there be giveaways?


Of course! Every expo has a fashion show at 2pm which includes the hottest new trends in wedding attire for all four seasons. Promptly after we have our grand prize giveaway! Prizes vary each show but every attendee is automatically registered into the grand prize entry. From free honeymoons, jewelry, discounted tuxedos, limos, and more. Be sure to stop by every booth as well when making your way throughout the show room. A majority of our vendors also do their own giveaways. (Tip: enter as many as you can, and circle back towards the end of the expo, post fashion show, to see if you won!)


What should I bring to the expo?


Nothing is required but you and your guests and a smile on your face because wedding planning is exciting! Over the past few years we’ve seen many couples coming in to our expos on a mission to find a specific vendor. If you’re on a mission, try writing down the must see booths before you enter the show that way you have time to peruse after! We’ve also seen a lot of couples come with stickers that list all of their registration/contact information. This makes it super easy when registering for the expo as well as handing out contact info to any vendor you’re looking to book. These can be made easily online and come in handy when attending our shows that way you can simply peel off a sticker and slap it on a registration card.  


Where can I buy tickets?
