Why the Wedding Dreams™ Bridal Expo will work for you:

  • Tapping into years of experience with wedding shows and over 20 years in the wedding industry, Wedding Dreams™ Bridal Expos are extremely well run, extensively promoted and an enormous success for you.

  • Lots of wonderful space. Roomy aisles, no bottlenecks or pesky escalators and uniform shaped and sized booths mean no nasty surprises on the day of set up. In addition, a venue that doesn't look better suited to selling cheap rugs or used computers. The TSB Arena is a superb modern venue.

  • Elegant charcoal panels, carpet underfoot, two 150w lights and power for every booth for no additional fee! You can also expect to enjoy airconditioning that works well to keep a pleasant, even climate to keep everyone comfortable.

  • THE major wedding show of the season, perfectly timed to talk to couples about the 2009/2010 wedding season.

  • ONE show day, so you're not tied up on a potential working Saturday. Experience has shown that two days doesn't generate any more visitors and it's so much tougher on exhibitors. 9am to 4pm- a great day!

  • Entry and exit is through the same doors, next to booth number 1, so every attendee gets to see every exhibitor twice. Nobody gets missed!

  • As exhibitors at our July 08 Wellington wedding show saw, we have a wonderfully cheerful, intelligent, calm and helpful Wedding Dreams team on site to help you enjoy your expo by ensuring that everything flows seamlessley without any fluster or running around. You'll enjoy the feel of the show and feel relaxed to serve attendees properly.

  • An unrivalled advertising campaign across a range of media including nationwide animated banner advertising on Yellow Pages Online and paid-submission Google advertising. The website is attracting truly spectacular Google rankings.

    Our 2008 show saw a massive radio advertising campaign (worth around $20,000) on Wellington's ZMFM, Classic Hits FM and Newstalk ZB and television advertising for 2009 is a strong possibility. Brides WILL know about this wedding show! Feel free to ask us for more details.

  • A link to your website from this site to help your search engine rankings and drive targeted web traffic your way.

  • More new genuine prospects in one day than you could meet in months.

  • Allows you to outshine the competition on the spot!

  • Great relationship building opportunity with brides and fantastic networking opportunities with other exhibitors - referrals are valuable. Expect to meet a very high calibre of wedding vendor at this show.

  • Allows brides the opportunity to smell, feel, taste, hear and meet the best available for their wedding.

  • First rights ahead of new exhibitors to a booth at the next Wedding Dreams Bridal Expo in Wellington in 2010. This is likely to be the first major Wellington city bridal show of the year and one not to be missed.

  • For Bridal Fashion businesses, there will be two fashion shows, professionally staged and hosted by a qualified, professional & experienced MC/Compere. Talk to us about getting YOUR gorgeous bridal couture in front of this audience!

  • Your brand in front of hundreds of brides in one day. Build a stand that speaks true quality and style. An impactful, visually attractive stand will generate a huge amount of interest and business.

The first major Wellington city wedding expo of the year is the one the new season's brides flock to see. Don't miss your chance to promote your business in this romantic, energetic, positive, cheerful expo. Exhibitors tell us that they renew their sites for our Wellington Wedding Show because they want to, not because they have to.


We know a great wedding show is more than just numbers through the doors. At the 'Wedding Dreams™ Bridal Expo' the focus is on being the best. We want you the exhibitor to have the best overall experience from our show and to feel that you want to exhibit with us, rather than feeling you have to exhibit with us. We believe that if our exhibitors have a successful show, WE have a successful show. Many of our exhibitors tell us that it's a different approach to what's been seen in the last few years at other wedding shows.
