There are so many places for inspiration and ideas when planning your wedding. You can download apps, scour the web, read magazines and hire a planner or you can spend a couple of hours immersed in the wedding world by attending a local show.
Usually made up of vendors offering every service and product imaginable when it comes to weddings, these shows can be huge, multi-day expanses or more intimate, boutique-type gatherings.
There are literally hundreds of bridal and wedding shows, expos and festivals, but we’ve rounded up some of Canada’s more unique and noteworthy.
