The Columbus Weddings Show provides couples with a one-stop shop for planning.
Mark your calendars: The Columbus Weddings Showis back this January and better than ever. The show, presented by Meyers Jewelers, is Jan. 23-24, 2016, at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.
With more than 200 vendors (you'll find cakes, flowers, photography, hair and makeup and more) present during the weekend, the Columbus Weddings Show serves as the perfect place to meet vendors, garner inspiration and nail down details for your big day.
One thing brides- and grooms-to-be won't want to miss is the fashion show (it's happening twice each day of the event): It will feature gowns from half a dozen local boutiques, and there's a VIP experience for those who want even more insight from the experts. Also appearing is bridal expert Randy Fenoli of "Say Yes to the Dress." Fenoli will share his bridal presentation and advice on both Saturday and Sunday. (Read our Q&A with Fenoli here.)
Show goers also have the opportunity to win great prizes, so make sure to register when you and your mom, gal pals or even fiancé arrive at the show.
"It's a fun way to explore everything that there is to do for a wedding," says Stephen Zonars, vice president of sales for Dispatch Media Group, sponsor of the show. "It's the ability to talk to people who spend their entire career focused on weddings. You can get the advice that you might otherwise pay a wedding planner for."
