Your Pasadena Bridal Show Visit

The Pasadena Bridal Show is produced by Bride World and held at the Pasadena Convention Center, located next to the Pasadena Civic Auditorium and across from Paseo Colorado. The nearest cross streets are Green Street and Marengo. The convention center parking is underground (directly below the exhibit hall) or there is a variety of parking options one block in every direction.

The Convention Center main entrance is facing Green Street. Posted signs will lead you to the correct Registration area. Upon check in, registered attendees will receive an expo shopping bag, a shopping guide, complimentary magazines (unique to each event) and personalized peel-n-stick labels. Printed labels contain the engaged couple’s registration information. These are used to conveniently peel and leave info with preferred vendors.

The entire exhibit hall will be set with 100 to 125 wedding vendors. Each vendor will have a display area to share wedding planning ideas and services. Participants include wedding venues, photographers, entertainers, invitations, florists, bridal salons, beauty services, tuxedos, cake bakers, event designers and others.

Bridal Show Activities & Inspiration

Meeting and Gathering Vendor Info

The exhibit area will be open continuously, for meeting, comparing and revisiting vendors. If you are beginning your planning, you may be focusing on venues, gowns and budgeting but remember, within a few weeks you’ll be deciding on save-the-dates, honeymoon destinations, wedding decor and photographers. All categories will be present and vendors will be sharing information and incentives. Gather everything, so you are prepared when choosing these vendors in the future.

Reserving a Company or Service

When you’re ready to reserve a wedding service vendor, a detailed order or formal contract may be appropriate. That can be completed at the expo or at a future appointment. Many companies will prefer to meet and exchange info while at the expo and contact couples soon after to set up reservation appointments.

Fashion Show

These presentations are a 20-minute glimpse into current trends and seasonal colors. The showing is presented at 12 noon and repeats at 2 p.m.

Event Prizes

Everyone will have a chance to win prizes when attending a fashion show. The master-of-ceremonies will host contests and present prizes, just prior to each showing.

Planning Seminar

The Pasadena bridal show has one planning seminar at 1 p.m. This is an informal, DIY question and answer forum. You can ask questions or just listen. It will be hosted by local planners and designers and span 20 to 30 minutes.

Pasadena Bridal Show Floor Plan

This event will showcase many wedding vendors. Each will be assigned a specific space number and location. At the expo, you will receive a printed shopping guide with more details.
