The region's biggest and best wedding expo returns in 2020.

As the holiday season winds down, we like to remind engaged couples in Central Ohio that there’s another big event on the horizon: the 2020 Columbus Weddings Show presented by Worthington Jewelers. Mark your calendars for Jan. 11-12, because this year’s show is something you won’t want to miss.

 As in years past, some of your favorite elements will return for 2020. Chief among them is the Runway Show, presented for the first time by Salon Lofts. The twice-daily show will feature the hottest in bridal, bridesmaid and menswear looks from Henri’s Cloud Nine, White of Dublin, David’s Bridal and Men’s Wearhouse. The Runway Show also will feature gowns from Randy Fenoli’s 2020 collection, which will be making their local debut for the first time ever.

In between each Runway Show will be a presentation from Fenoli himself. The star of TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress will talk about fashion, trends and more, and will take questions from the audience. Attendees also will have the chance to snag a selfie with Fenoli after his presentation.

Other noteworthy attractions at the Columbus Weddings Show include tasty samples from caterers, bakers and more (so come hungry!), exclusive show discounts and specials on wedding-day needs, more than 125 vendors covering every aspect of the wedding, and the chance to win a slice of more than $8,000 in giveaway prizes! This year’s grand prize is a $2,500 gift certificate to Worthington Jewelers—perfect for finishing your bridal look, picking out matching wedding bands, or finding the perfect gift for your parents.

The Columbus Weddings Show will take place Saturday, Jan. 11, and Sunday, Jan. 12, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days at the Ohio Expo Center’s Kasich Hall. Admission is $12 at the door, or you can snag discounted tickets at cbusweddings.com, courtesy Twirl Bridal. You also can purchase a Squad Pack of three tickets for a discounted price of $27, as well as a $30 VIP ticket for a private reception with Fenoli before his stage presentation. Parking at the Expo Center is $5, cash only.
