Don't miss out on the area's biggest, best wedding expo.

The time has (almost) come! The 2019 Columbus Weddings Show is this weekend, Jan. 12-13 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Ohio Expo Center’s Kasich Hall (formerly Cardinal Hall). We’re so excited for everything the show has in store: guest appearances by Monte Durham of TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta, delicious samples from caterers and bakers, show-exclusive discounts and freebies, and $20,000 in giveaway prizes! That number includes the grand prize, courtesy Worthington Jewelers: a beautiful diamond worth $4,500, plus a $2,500 gift certificate to use on anything in the store! Registering to win that and our other prizes is super-easy—just sign up at the Registry instant-win kiosks when you arrive.

Tickets to the show are $12 at the door, or save by buying in advance online at cbusweddings.com; online discount courtesy of Twirl. We also have a three-ticket Squad Pack available online for $27 to help you save even more. And if you want to jump into the VIP meet-and-greet with Monte before his stage presentation, tickets are just $25 and include admission to the show itself. Note that parking at the Ohio Expo Center is $5, cash only.

Vendors are setting up for the show today, and we’ll be broadcasting via Facebook Live to give you a sneak peek this afternoon. Follow Columbus Weddings on Facebook and tune in at 2 p.m. today to catch the behind-the-scenes action!
