Thursday, October 28 • The Gates on Roblin • Soirée Event Planning

“The Grand Wedding Showcase is a great way to gather lots of information in a short period of time. GWS 2010 is going to be a much more intimate atmosphere than the typical wedding show, which gives you more opportunities to ask questions and eliminates that overwhelming feeling that many brides experience in a more traditional trade show environment. As a vendor, this intimate environment is exciting because it gives us more time to talk to perspective clients to get a feel for what they’re looking for, and it also gives us more opportunities to showcase what we’re capable of creating and the many facets of our abilities. As a bride, you will interact with a group of fabulous vendors that represent high standards and quality product. Being connected with the wedding industry is a great way to build the best team that will work for you.”

Sneak Peek: The first event of GWS is going to be stunning! Soirée is working to create awe-inspiring visionary ideas that you will have you dreaming of incorporating them into your own wedding. Celebrating romance with unique twists, you’ll find an exhilarating atmosphere and remember the special touches that you will want to make yours.

Friday, October 29 • The Four Points by Winnipeg Sheraton South • Madeline’s Weddings and Events

“Engaged couples from all over Manitoba can experience all of their wedding vendors in one room at GWS. Prepared couples can walk into a wedding show knowing which vendors they have yet to book, and leave two hours later with their entire wedding planned. Talk about getting it done in one shot! This leaves you plenty of time to think about the details, finishing touches, and most importantly, enjoy your engagement stress-free! Prior to the show, sit down and decide what you still need for your wedding, and research those vendors you’re interested in—the GWS2010 website is a great resource for brides checking out all the vendors before coming to the show. Get references from past clients, find out how well each vendor interacts with others you have booked, and how much experience each vendor has. And bring your decision makers with you—many vendors will offer “book at the show” promotions, so you should be prepared to leave a deposit. Meeting vendors is simply a great way to find the best possible vendors to suit your style and taste for your big day!”

Sneak Peek: Madeline’s Weddings and Events is excited to host a luxurious cocktail party that you are invited to! See how stylish your wedding could be, with glamorous stylings, luxe colour palettes, and stunning gowns.
