Columbus Wedding Expo & Bridal Show

Getting married? Let The Columbus Wedding Expo & Bridal Show coming up August 25 at the Hilton Columbus at Easton help you out with the planning process.

The show, says Tracy Claiborne of Claiborne Productions, is all about wedding planning.

“This show will give engaged couples the opportunity to get great ideas for their big day,” she says. “It will also allow them to talk to the wedding professionals who have been in the industry and who have been providing products and services for weddings for many years.”

Claiborne says the professionals who will be at the show are experienced and can answer any questions couples may have. Attendees will be able to see samples of photography, taste wedding cakes and food from caterers, look at different reception sites and what they offer, and find new ideas you may not have considered, such as ice sculptures, unique venues, and more.

Claiborne says that this year’s show focuses on creativity and decor options.

“There are so many great ways to decorate and create themes for your wedding,” she says. “The vendors attending the show will create displays that showcase many options for bringing your Pinterest boards to reality.”

When asked about what makes this show ideal for brides and couples to attend, she says that it’s the experience created for attendees. 

“Many shows have rows and rows of vendors that hand out cards,” she says. “Rather than having the show at a convention center, we hold them at beautiful venues that have weddings. This provides for a much nicer experience in a pretty setting. Our wedding vendors provide beautiful displays and welcome you to really talk with them and ask questions.”

Additionally, the show features a fashion show showcasing the latest styles of bridesmaid dresses, wedding gowns, and tuxedo. 

There will be a short dance demo on how you can prepare for your first dance. There will also be a DIY flower seminar that will be done by The Flowerman. “They will show you how they work with you to save hundreds of dollars on flowers all while creating a fun and memorable experience,” adds Claiborne.

When guests arrive at the event they will see a list of all the wedding professionals at the show, a free copy of the latest edition of The Knot Ohio Weddings magazine, a Knot swag bag, a $200 gift card from, and a $10 gift card from

The Hilton Columbus at Easton is located at 3900 Chargin Drive in Columbus.
