Last weekend I attended Canada’s Bridal Show at the Metro Convention Centre in Toronto. The event was held all weekend from September 9-11th where a bunch of exhibitors showcase all the products and services Brides need to plan the wedding of their dreams.
When you enter the Bridal Show, you are asked to “register” in their system where they ask for your full name, email, and whether you are the Bride, Bridesmaid, etc etc. You receive a print out of this information with a barcode on it and a lanyard to wear. With this, exhibitors can scan your barcode to send you further information about their products/services. Don’t get me wrong, this is a great idea and is very helpful in most cases, however, be aware that some exhibitors may scan your barcode without even asking!
Tip: Turn your lanyard around so your information is not on display!
There is LOTS to see and there will be a lot of people talking to you from all different directions about what they can offer for your dream wedding. From venues to flowers, dresses, cakes, men’s suits, honeymoons, etc… they’ve got it all for you to see and explore! A Bridal fashion show took place where models walked the runway presenting different styles of wedding dresses, men’s suits and children attire. There are also many contests and prizes to be won and everyone will be asking for you to sign up – the more the merrier, right?! You never know if you will win!
The cost of admission is $20, however, you can get a discounted price on Groupon for cheaper!

Before anyone gets any ideas… no I am not engaged or planning a wedding any time soon! I went with a few girlfriends of mine to get an idea and a sense of what planning a wedding is all about!
