The small-scale expo packs a big punch.

You have one last chance in 2019 to check out the latest trends and connect with vendors at the Columbus Weddings Boutique Show in August.

“Our most popular mini-expo for brides and grooms is gearing up to be another fabulous event,” says Weston Davis, marketing manager for GateHouse Live Events & Promotions, which produces Columbus Weddings-partnered shows. “It’ll be full of inspiration for your upcoming wedding, with dozens of vendors covering every aspect of wedding-planning, from the ring to the honeymoon.”

Hosted at Nationwide Conference and Event Center on Sunday, Aug. 11, from noon to 4 p.m., the event has become highly regarded for its wealth of information presented in an approachable, bite-sized format.

“Big expos can be overwhelming, especially if you’re newly engaged and not quite sure what you’re looking for,” says Davis. “Or if you’re in the final stages of planning an end-of-year wedding and only need to book one last vendor or two. That’s why we created our Boutique Shows.”

As with all Columbus Weddings Boutique Shows, attendees will have the opportunity to win major prizes from area vendors like presenting sponsor Worthington Jewelers. And each of-age guest will receive a complimentary mimosa with his or her admission.

“It’s a great way to spend an afternoon: Sip a mimosa and taste free samples from caterers and cake bakers, check out the latest styles and book vendors offering exclusive discounts,” says Davis. “What more could you ask for?”

If you can’t make it to the summer Boutique Show on Aug. 11, mark your calendar now for the 2020 Columbus Weddings Show, Jan. 11-12, at the Ohio Expo Center.
