Win two tickets to the show in January
The Columbus Weddings Show presented by Worthington Jewelers is fast approaching! This year's show, which takes place Jan. 14-15, has a ton of awesome new features … plus the return of some tried-and-true favorites. Read on for details on all the show has to offer and a chance to win four free tickets to attend!
New this year is the show's location at Cardinal Hall at the Ohio Expo Center. Dedicated on-site parking and a newly built facility will provide the ultimate in convenience. (And don't worry about leaving your coat in the car-Dublin Cleaners is sponsoring a coat check, with all proceeds going to a local charity.)
It's no surprise that we are totally fangirling over this year's special guest: David Tutera. The wedding mogul will take the stage at 2 p.m. both days to chat about all things weddings; guests will get a chance to say hi to and take a selfie with him after the appearance. David was an absolute doll when we interviewed him for a story in the current issue (check it out on page 181), so we're really looking forward to meeting him in person.
The first new and exciting feature at this year's show is the "Ask A Planner" booth. Show attendees will be able to sit down for a free, one-on-one, no-appointment-needed consultation with a wedding planner to ask a quick question about anything related to wedding planning. We'll have more details on that-complete with planners' bios-in a future post, so stay tuned!
Next up, we have the tablescape competition. Three teams of show vendors will collaborate to create a gorgeous tablescape with the theme of "vintage by candlelight." Show attendees can vote for their favorite, and the winning team will be featured in the summer/fall 2017 issue of Columbus Weddings.
Of course, the ever-popular fashion show will be back once more, at 12:30 and 3:30 each day. Gorgeous gowns from Henri's Cloud Nine, Joan's Bridal Couture, White of Dublin and David's Bridal will grace the stage, along with dapper suits from Men's Wearhouse. You'll also get to see the latest in wedding party trends, along with hair and makeup looks styled by the talented team at Charles Penzone.
And finally, more than 200 vendors in every category of wedding planning-from the engagement ring to the honeymoon-will be on-site to answer questions about their businesses. Many of the vendors are giving away freebies and special prizes (even ones not mentioned in our prize preview post), so you definitely don't want to miss those.
Now, for the part you've all been waiting for-the giveaway! Just enter using the widget below; the winner will be chosen this Friday, Dec. 30, at 1 p.m. and announced on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram at 2 p.m. (Winner also will be notified by email.)
