“Each year we get more bookings as a direct result of the Wonderful Wedding Show than all our other advertising put together. We are very happy to be a part of this show; it is extremely well managed, with extensive marketing that guarantees a large attendance of potential clients. The Wonderful Wedding Show is known for providing a bride with a one-stop shop for hundreds of vendors within the wedding industry making planning for their day easier, and provides inspiration to attendees and vendors alike.”

“We have participated in the wedding show every year for the last 18 years. The wonderful wedding show is the premier networking event for Winnipeg’s leading wedding professionals. If you’re not involved with the wonderful wedding show you’re just simply not a player in the market. The staff at Showtime have always been a pleasure to deal with and are a key part of helping bridal couples create the wedding of their dreams. With over 80 weddings a year at Fort Gibraltar we are a leader in our market. At our other venue Lower Fort Garry we have a beautiful marquee tent for up to 400 people. The wonderful wedding show is a key part of how we connect to Winnipeg’s brides and grooms.”
– Shawn Brandson, FORT GIBRALTAR
“Archangel Fireworks offers a unique service; many people don’t know that a custom fireworks display can be the perfect finale to your big day. The Wonderful Wedding show gives us the opportunity to bring that excitement to a wider audience through their advertising and social media campaigns, and the huge number of attendees that we get to meet with face to face at the show. We love it when someone who has never thought of the idea of having fireworks at their wedding sees our booth, it is like a light bulb goes off over their head and a smile crosses their face. You can’t make that kind of impact on potential customers anywhere else.
Another benefit to being a part of the Wonderful Wedding Show is that we have the opportunity to network with the other wedding vendors. It takes a lot of teamwork to make sure your big day goes off without a hitch, making connections is so essential in this industry.
We have been participating in the Wonderful Wedding Show for over a decade, and it is reasons like these that guarantee we will continue to be a part of this excellent event for many years to come.”

“Magickal Marriages by Mark Murray is celebrating its 10th year as an exhibitor with the Wonderful Wedding Show. I chose the Wonderful Wedding Show as a vehicle to promote my business because of the large-scale, direct-to-consumer marketing the show offers, with more than 5000 brides through the doors over the course of the weekend. The chance to bring my unique experience with non-standard wedding ceremonies to couples looking for something different is well worth the time, effort and cost of being an exhibitor, and I have seen my business grow from the half-dozen weddings I did in my first couple of years to the 25-30 I have averaged every year since. The RBC Convention Centre is a superb venue, allowing an enormous number and range of vendors to showcase their goods and services, which is of great benefit for couples coming to seek out what sometimes they didn’t even know they needed. For myself, this has allowed me to connect with other wedding industry professionals and help build a community of businesses willing to help promote each other, along with the year-round support of the Wonderful Wedding Show. I have greatly enjoyed the years I have participated in the Wonderful Wedding Show, and I look forward to being part of the show for many years to come.”

“We have participated in the Wonderful Wedding Show for the last 2 years and have had an extraordinary experience with the show! The show gives us the wonderful opportunity to meet with brides face to face, allowing us to create a relationship prior to them booking with us, and a unique way for us to network.
Not only do we meet other fantastically talented vendors & lovely clients, but get to experience this all in the same beautiful space. Although it is a vendor show, it always feels more personal and gives us the time to spend getting to know those needing our services! We have now become the exclusive Hair and Makeup Artists for The Wonderful Wedding Show Fashion Shows. To be offered the chance to showcase our artistry has been extraordinary. We are honoured to be participating in such an exquisitely organized, managed & creative show! There is no other show like it in this city. The exposure, success and results we see from it are like nothing we have participated in in the past. We will continue to participate in this remarkable event for our 3rd year, and look forward to what 2017’s Wonderful Wedding Show has to bring!”

Their spectacular fashion shows have provided Stella’s Bridal with an unparalleled opportunity to showcase our elegant, modern, and chic wedding and bridesmaid dresses to enthusiastic and receptive audiences.

Stella’s Bridal has found the Wonderful Wedding Show experience to be a one of a kind and exemplary marketing occasion. No other Manitoba wedding event is as highly promoted, anticipated, and attended.

“In 2000, Rygiel Photography & Video first participated in the Wonderful Wedding Show. The experience was so positive that Rygiel has been part of the show ever since.
The Wonderful Wedding Show makes it possible for Rygiel Photography & Video to meet with more brides, and their families and friends, in a single weekend, than we typically would in an entire year. Although it’s true that today, brides are able to view photographers’ and videographers’ work online anytime, we have discovered there is no substitute for the one on one interaction the show facilitates.
The Wonderful Wedding Show takes place in the centrally located, and beautifully renovated, RBC Convention Centre. Rygiel has found the show’s extensive marketing campaign attracts thousands of brides and their entourages to the show, and that the experience is much like attending a concert. The show generates a great deal of energy that encourages brides to finalize purchasing decisions for their wedding event. Rygiel Photography & Video’s partnership with the Wonderful Wedding Show has resulted in an increase in the number of events we book, and has introduced our products services to both current and future brides.
The things Rygiel Photography & Video enjoys most about participating in the Wonderful Wedding Show are the large number of excellent attendees, and the many networking opportunities the show affords. As a result of the high quality of this show, professionally produced by Sherri Rheubottom and her extraordinary team, Manitoba’s most talented vendors are attracted to participate as exhibitors, making it the perfect one stop shopping experience for brides.
For Rygiel Photography & Video, the Wonderful Wedding Show is an invaluable part of our annual marketing campaign. Rygiel has found the show provides significant results, and recommends it to businesses looking to introduce their products and services to more Manitoba brides than any other wedding show.”
