Wedding Wednesday: Engage Ottawa Luxury Bridal Show

Happy Wedding Wednesday friends! This Sunday I had the pleasure of attending the Engage Ottawa Luxury Wedding Show with one of my bridesmaids, Katie. This was the first bridal show that I've gone to, and I had a ton of fun!

Engage Ottawa Bridal Fashion Show

Engage Ottawa was held at the stunning Fairmont Ch√Ęteau Laurier, where I recently spent a weekend! Tickets were $20 in advance, or $25 at the door. The show was supposed to run from 11am-5pm, and we arrived at 2pm. By about 3:30, most of the vendors were already gone, and the room was pretty empty. I would have been upset if I had arrived any later, since I would have missed the entire show!

Engage Ottawa featured a bridal fashion show at 2:30pm, which was quite fun! There wasn't any introduction to the bridal fashion show, or any explanation of who the designers were. While the fashion show was a lot of fun, I would have appreciated a bit more information about the dresses.

The vendors included photographers, florists, spray tanners, stationary boutiques, photo booth rentals, candy bars, wedding cake bakers, and more. Katie and I walked around, chatted with the different vendors, and got a ton of great ideas to use in my own wedding planning.

Overall, I had a lot of fun at Engage Ottawa, but I do think that it could have run a bit smoother considering that it is a luxury wedding show. I do wish that the show had continued on until 5pm as promised, and that there was more information surrounding the bridal fashion show. For $20/$25 a ticket, this bridal show is a pricey outing, but I had a great day with one of my bridesmaids! 

Have you been to a bridal show before?
