Monte Durham of TLC's “Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta” will grace the stage at Central Ohio's premier wedding expo next January.

You heard it here first, folks—Monte Durham, fashion director for TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta, will appear at the 2019 Columbus Weddings Show. The bridal style expert will share his expertise during stage presentations on both days of the show and will give autographs and take selfies with attendees immediately following his stage appearances.

But that won’t be all. We’re giving away tickets to a private, VIP meet-and-greet with Durham at the summer and fall Columbus Weddings Boutique Shows, Aug. 12 at Nationwide Hotel & Conference Center and Oct. 14 at Bridgewater Banquet & Conference Center. Entering is easy; just register at the instant-win kiosks when you first arrive at the show. (There will be tons of other great prizes at these kiosks, too—stay tuned for more details on that as the August Boutique Show approaches.)

And a few lucky winners will get the chance to sit down for a private dinner with Durham, similar to last year’s dinner with David Tutera at The Estate at New Albany. Look for details on that giveaway later this year.

We talked about what to expect with Monte’s appearance, plus wedding trends and the upcoming Columbus Weddings Boutique Show, on the Columbus Wedding Podcast. That episode airs next week, so make sure you download it from Apple Podcasts, Stitcher or Soundcloud!
