The Twin Cities Bridal Show is scheduled to return to Saint Paul RiverCentre on Sunday, March 5. This will be the eighth time this social media savvy large-scale wedding expo will be produced in Saint Paul by The Wedding Guys®, who were awarded the International Live Event Association Esprit Award for Best Public Event.

The Twin Cities Bridal Show features more than 130 exhibitor booths, exciting prizes, a honeymoon giveaway, Glam to Go Makeover Station 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. See your Pinterest board come to life with the actual décor, floral, stationary, cake and fashion elements in person. Throughout the show, couples can include the hashtag #TCBridalShow in their social media posts and capture all their favorite inspiration using custom Snapchat geofilters.

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®. The show will feature a dazzling laser light show and innovative video projection along with 20 feet tall screens. 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. Mestad's Bridal and Formalwear, The Wedding Shoppe, Savvi Formalwear and Luxe Bridal Couture will provide fashions.

The Twin Cities Bridal Show is sponsored by Minnesota Monthly Magazine, The Knot, The Saint Paul Hotel, Luxe Bridal Couture, 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 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 on March 5. Fashion shows will take place at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Registration is $15 for General Admission and $20 for General Admission and the Aisle of Style Fashion Show. Register at TheWeddingGuys.com.
