Canada’s Bridal Show (January 10-12, 2020)

Kicking off the 2020 season is the much-loved Canada’s Bridal Show. Founded in 1984, this convention has been showcasing the wedding pros of Canada’s bridal industry for over 30 years and is one of the most renowned wedding exhibitions in the country. As per usual, the event will bring hundreds of expert wedding vendors and planners to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre for a three-day stint. This year’s list of exhibitors includes Elite Beauty, Heavenly Creation Florist and Kleinfeld Hudson’s Bay (just to name a few). Tickets cost a mere $20.

Must Be Kismet (January 12, 2020)

Missed the fall Must Be Kismet show way back in September? NBD, another one is right around the corner! The event will take over Mississauga’s International Centre and give you the chance to see the work of the GTA’s top South Asian wedding vendors. There will be fashion shows, panels and displays that may give you some inspo for your wedding theme, colour scheme and more. Tickets cost $10 for general admission or $15 if you want to see a fashion show, too.

The WedLuxe Wedding Show (January 19, 2020)

Want to hit two Toronto bridal shows in one day? Make your way to The WedLuxe Wedding Show at The Carlu on the 13th and you’ll be immersed in a real wedding wonderland. Over 100 elite florists, cake designers, stationers and other wedding pros will be showing their stuff, so you’re bound to stumble upon something you love. Keep in mind that this show is more like a party than an exhibition so you’ll have more time to mix and mingle with the best in the biz.
