Portland’s Most-Attended, Must-See, Wedding Event of the Year

The Portland Bridal Show

The event that brings together the very best local wedding professionals in the Portland-Vancouver area.

Since 1979, the goal of the Portland Bridal Show, has been to bring together the very best local wedding professionals in the Portland-Vancouver area, in order to assist brides in planning their dream wedding.

We produce the largest and most attended show in the Oregon . . . with over 8,000 attendees and 3000+ registered brides in 2018.

We do this through an extensive advertising program that includes social media, radio, television, bridal publications, newspaper and Internet.

Our bridal show allows you “face to face” interaction with your target market, as you display your products and services and engage with the brides and grooms.

Our exhibitors are provided with friendly customer service and detailed information to help them feel more prepared before each show.

We create a good diversity of exhibitors in each show and place limitations on each exhibitor category.

We look forward to telling you more about how to reach the bridal market and how to set your company apart through participation in the Portland Bridal Show.

Producers Tom and Barbie Howard have been producing shows since 2011. They love producing high-quality shows, bringing in tons of brides and grooms, and getting to know their clients personally.

When you call the Portland Bridal Show office, one of them will greet you and answer all your questions. You will not be pressured by persistent sales people paid on commission. Tom and Barbie will walk you through what to expect from our events and how to best get a return on your investment.

Outside of the office, they spend time driving their teenagers to football, baseball, gymnastics, birthday parties, etc. And they have a lively, well-trained, always-obedient cat named Ridley. They are happy to chat with you anytime!
