Jacksonville Bridal Show January 5th 2014

The Premier Bride Magazine is a proud sponsor at the University Center at the University of North Florida is the longest running bridal show in Northeast Florida.  Since 1994 a bridal expo has taken place in its halls and ballrooms.  This show has proven to be the premier wedding event in Jacksonville with 100 wedding vendors representing over 17 different wedding categories.

Brides, grooms and their  entourages have the opportunity to meet their potential wedding vendors, see their work first hand, taste their food or cakes, smell and see their floral displays, hear musicians play, talk to wedding coordinators, gather information on honeymoons, and so much more.

Each bride that walks through the door gets a swag bag full of goodies.  The bag is also helpful in gathering information from all of the local wedding vendors. 

The Jacksonville bridal show is also a great opportunity to win prizes and give-away from the Jacksonville wedding vendors.   Almost all of the bridal show vendors have a prize to be won.  In order to win prizes you have to register to win.  A helpful bridal show tip is to create a label sheet with you contact information on each label.  Be sure to include your; Name, Address, Phone Number, Wedding Date, and Email Address.  Simply peeling and sticking a label is much easier then hand writing out the registration forms. 

Another helpful tip for the Jacksonville bridal expo is to make a list to types of wedding vendors you would like to see.  It is unlikely you can talk to everyone at the show.  This all depends on where you are in the wedding planning process.  If you are just starting you want to see all of the wedding venues, bridal attire stores, wedding photographers , DJ’s, invitations  and cake bakers or sweets.  Remember you need a wedding date and location to book most of your wedding vendors.  If you are in the middle stages of your wedding planning process talk to; florists, décor and rental companies, caterers, transportation and limos, videographers,  wedding makeup artists, officiates,  ceremony musicians and grooms attire.  And if you are at the end of your process check out; honeymoons, wedding registries, bachelor and bachelorette parties, rehearsal dinner locations, bridal accessories, photo booths, accommodations for guests and all the vendors that help make married life easier!

As you can see, no matter what stage you are in the wedding planning process there is something for everyone at the expo!  Our Jacksonville shows happen every winter and summer, typically in January or February and September each year so plan on coming twice!

Our next expo is January 5th 2014 from 1-4 pm at the University Center at UNF
