The Joburg Wedding Expo

Bringing back the fun to wedding planning with The Wedding Expo.

We recently attended The Joburg Wedding Expo, 10-11 March at the Ticketpro Dome and had the best time! Here were some of the highlights from the show.

The giveaways, specials and promotions are endless. A lucky couple, Gert Opperman and Melissa Glaser, won the ultimate prize of a Wedding to the value of R138 000.

Inspiration Inspiration Inspiration! The exhibitors did outstanding work on their stands and the displays of work everywhere were pure eye candy! We saw so many brides taking photos all around the show, finding ideas to use for their own wedding. Their giddiness and excitement was a treat to watch!

The Fashion Show was superb showcasing both local talent and some international brands. Seeing the bridal gowns and bridesmaids dresses on the models really helped to bring the designs to life.

The Cake Tasting area was another great activity where you got to sample a variety of cake flavours.  This area booked up so quickly, we were clearly not the only ones eager to eat cake.

The Table Inspiration Competition area showcased 12 different table set ups done up by exhibitors, showing off their skills! Again a great way for brides and grooms to get ideas for their own weddings.

The Wedding Style Workshop was a blast, which you can read more about here. We couldn’t get enough of all the flower crowns and playing with colours!

Flowstone Gin created signature cocktails for The Wedding Expo, not only were they pretty but delicious too!

A nail bar, great food options from a Patisserie to Sushi, The Tipsy Bar, coffee bar and live music from guitarist Dale Rawson, overall it’s a great day out!

Wedding Planning can be tough with so much to plan for, but with The Wedding Expo there’s everything you need in one space.

What we love about it the most, is that The Wedding expo provides a great environment to meet wedding suppliers. Weddings are personal and you want the right person for the job! With the face to face and the fun environment of the expo you get to find the suppliers you really connect with!
