The people who plan and stage bridal shows are very smart. They know the vast majority of engagements happen over the holidays, hence bridal shows galore starting in January. For the newly engaged it can be a bit overwhelming.
Here is a list of upcoming shows, both here in Toronto and the surrounding region. Some are large; some are small.
The larger shows can be exhausting so wear comfortable shoes, load up on batteries for your camera, healthy snacks. And don’t forget a pen and notebook. You’ll be making lots of notes.
Ready? Get set. GO!
