Twin Cities Bridal Show Returns to Saint Paul RiverCentre Jan. 3

The Twin Cities Bridal Show will return to Saint Paul RiverCentre on Sunday, January 3 at noon. This will be the fifth time this social media savvy large-scale wedding expo will be produced in Saint Paul by The Wedding Guys®, who were awarded the 2013 International Special Events Society Esprit Award for Best Public Event. The last show in September 2015 saw 3,400 people in attendance.

The Twin Cities Bridal Show features more than 140 exhibitor booths, exciting prizes, a honeymoon give-away 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, stationary, cake and fashion elements. Trending themes for 2016 are Farm to Table, Vintage, Urban Industrial, Glam, Modern Tradition and Hipster. But the tech-savvy elements don't stop just at Pinterest. 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 features 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 and innovative video projection, along with 20-foot-tall Imag screens 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 Complete Music. Angelique's Bridal Salon, Mestad's Bridal and Formalwear, The Wedding Shoppe, Savvi Formalwear, David's Bridal and Luxe Bridal Couture will provide fashions.


Minnesota Monthly Magazine, The Knot, Wedding Wire, The Saint Paul Hotel, Midway Party Rental, Savvi Formalwear, Mestad's Bridal and Formalwear and The Wedding Shoppe sponsor the Twin Cities Bridal Show. 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 again 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 5 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 Groom and Groom."


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