Overall Impression –
Bridal Expos Australia had their Bridal Expo at the Lardner Park Exhibition Centre on Sunday, February 3rd 2019. Set amongst the rolling hills of beautiful Lardner- It was a fantastic venue with an even better back drop. The expo featured wedding suppliers ready to help brides to plan their dream wedding.
The expo was filled with Gippsland’s finest photographers, celebrants, reception and wedding venues, entertainment, stylists, photo booths and bridal wear.
The first 50 brides received a pamper bag valued at over $200. Everyone who entered received a showbag with the latest issue of TOAST WEDDINGS magazine.
There was a fashion parade on the catwalk at 12.30pm – The show started with Intimo shapewear, and finished with bridesmaid dresses and brides dresses.
Overall, the Melbourne Bridal Expo 19 held at Lardner Park Convention and Exhibition Centre had some quality exhibitors but seemed to not have enough brides through the door. Exhibitiors seemed disheartened and were waiting for a larger audience.
