Overall Impression – Wedding Expos Australia has been doing what it does best for over 10 years, putting on fantastic shows across the county, so you can expect to have a good day out if you’re planning to attend Melbourne’s Annual Wedding Expo. Sadly, on this occasion our reviewing party hate to say it but the show was rather a yawn. We love the fact that entry is free and brides get a large gold ‘I’m getting married’ bag (sad face that it doesn’t have anything in the bags apart from a magazine), but there’s not much else that adds to the day’s experience. There were way too many photographers, and not a single cake supplier, so the variety was not very balanced.

There was no fashion parade in sight, in no competitions or special offers to get excited about. Overall, we’ve seen Wedding Expos Australia do so much better in their past shows. Let’s hope the next Melbourne’s Annual Wedding Expo is worth the visit.
