    I just heard on the radio this morning that Bridal Expo is on Sunday!  I've actually never gone to one of these bridal shows... is it worth going for those of us getting married outside the city/country?

      I have been to a couple bridal shows (as a bridesmaid and a bride) and I didn't find them very useful for DW ideas. I found way more useful info on this site ;) that being said you might want to check one out for invitation/photographer ideas. Also if you haven't found a dress the fashion shows can give you some ideas too.

        Agreed. These are more limited in their 'usefulness' for a DW bride. That being said I went with a coworkers that was getting married as well, and I thought it was just fun to see the craziness and look around. I wont be going to this one as we leave in some 2 months, cant get any new ideas at this point, but I am glad I went, if just to say I have experiences it.

          ‘experienced’ not ‘experiences’ urg, wish the edit button was still around.

              I went last year when I was planning and found it useful for browsing invitation styles and checking out vendors for our AHR...not so much in terms of DW's unless you're looking for a travel agent. But it's still an experience I think every bride must have! Just make sure to set up a separate email account to give all the vendors so you're not spammed for years to come.

                Also great advice lol.  I'm going dress shopping this week and I know there's another show in Edmonton next weekend... maybe I'll just go to that one after I go shopping... so if I see a dress I want to buy, at least I already know I tried it on and it looked good.

                  I'm going to the Bridal Expo on Sunday with my mom! I'm not really expecting to get a ton of ideas, I'm really just going for the experience. I've never been to one before so I'm really looking forward to it! I'll post my thoughts afterwards :)

                    Just a heads up to my Calgary ladies who don't have dresses....I just got an email from The Bridal Centre saying that they are having a huge dress sale tomorrow (Sunday the 12th) to make room for the Fall collection.  11am - 5pm
