Twin Cities Bridal Show at Saint Paul RiverCentre March 2



SAINT PAUL, Minn. – The Twin Cities Bridal Show - The Wedding Dream Expo is scheduled for Sunday, March 2 at Saint Paul RiverCentre and will open at noon. This will be the second large-scale wedding expo produced in Saint Paul in a decade by The Wedding Guys® who were awarded the 2013 International Special Events Society Esprit Award for Best Public Event.

The Twin Cities Bridal Show features more than 150 exhibitor booths, exciting prizes, a honeymoon giveaway and the Aisle of Style™ fashion show.

The ‘Inspiration Station™’  is the newest feature of the show, showcasing the six latest wedding themes with store-window style displays. These Inspiration Stations have been curated on Pinterest.com/TCBridalShow, where couples get an opportunity to see these trends before the show, then see Pinterest come to life with the actual décor, floral, stationery cake and fashion elements.

The tech-savvy elements don’t stop there. Throughout the show, couples can see their social media posts that include the hashtag #TCBridalShow on monitors and video screens in social media hubs and the Aisle of Style Fashion Show Theatre.

The Aisle of Style Fashion Show will feature a multimedia production worthy of New York Fashion Week. The Fashion Show is produced by the international-award-winning team The Wedding Guys® who have received the 2013 Bridal Show Producer’s International Star Award for Best Fashion Show Production. The show will feature a dazzling laser light show, innovative video projection along with all of the fashions. Boasting 35 models, the Aisle of Style Fashion Show is the most impressive bridal fashion show in the country. This interactive experience includes the music mixing of DJ David Baer from Level 11. Fashions will be provided by Angelique’s Bridal Salon, Mestad’s Bridal and Formalwear, The Wedding Shoppe, Savvi Formalwear and Luxe Bridal Couture.

The March 2 event will mark the runway debut of Luxe Bridal Couture which was recently featured on the Today Show for its innovative approach to providing a great dress buying experience for plus size brides.

The Twin Cities Bridal Show is sponsored by Minnesota Monthly Magazine, The Knot, WeddingWire, The Saint Paul Hotel, Midway Party Rental, Savvi Formalwear, Mestad’s Bridal and Formalwear and The Wedding Shoppe. The Twin Cities Bridal Show exhibits include caterers, photographers, florists, honeymoon destinations, reception sites, dress and formal wear shops, jewelers, invitation printers, musicians and much more.

“It is exciting to bring the Twin Cities Bridal Show to Saint Paul this year. There is a tremendous amount of talent in Saint Paul and the surrounding communities and we are thrilled to showcase these businesses to couples from the entire five state area,” says Matthew Trettel, one of The Wedding Guys. “The Twin Cities Bridal Show is the must-see event for anyone planning a wedding.”

“Our shows have always been gender neutral,” says Wedding Guy Bruce Vassar, “so same sex couples will have a great experience, too. The Twin Cities Bridal Show is very inclusive and couples will find the stories of gay, lesbian and heterosexual couples woven into the exciting new Inspiration Station. So don’t be confused by the term bridal (which means a marriage festival or ceremony) because the Twin Cities Bridal Show is for the Bride and Bridegroom, Bride and Bride or Bridegroom and Bridegroom.”

The Twin Cities Bridal Show exhibits will be open from noon - 4 p.m. Fashion shows will take place at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. Registration is $10 for General Admission and $15 for General Admission and the Aisle of Style Fashion Show. Register at TCBridalShow.com.
