About the Show

The Columbus Weddings Show is known as a one-stop shop for all your wedding needs, from the engagement ring through honeymoon travel planning. Many of the 100-plus vendors at the Show offer exclusive discounts to attendees who book at or as a result of the expo, and still more offer service samples ranging from hors d’oeuvres to cake pops to mini-makeovers.

In addition to the vendors, four fashion shows—two each day—will showcase dozens of the latest styles for brides, grooms and bridal parties. And Monte Durham, co-star of TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta, will give a stage presentation each day, where he’ll talk trends and take questions from the audience.

The Columbus Weddings Show is also known for its wide range of door prizes, from Bliss Buck$ that can be used with participating vendors to the grand prize giveaway: a $2,500 gift certificate to Worthington Jewelers. Entering to win any of the show’s $15,000 in prizes is easily done via the Instant Win kiosks set up at the show’s entrance.

If you don’t win free tickets, you can visit cbusweddings.com to purchase a Squad Pack—three tickets for $27—and bring along your partner, friends or parents. VIP Meet and Greet tickets with Monte Durham are $25 and include entry to the show itself. Parking at the Ohio Expo Center is $5, cash only.
