Show Info

Founded in 1986 by Paul Beardmore, the Winchester Bridal Expo is the longest running bridal show in the Valley.  With an established reputation for being well managed, and attracting large numbers of brides, the Winchester Bridal Expo is an affordable way for wedding vendors to showcase their services directly to couples actively seeking their services. In 2018, Michelle's Main Event took over production of the Winchester Bridal Expo. We are focused on continuing to produce the best show in the Shenandoah Valley. 

 

As a local wedding professional ourselves, we appreciate the need to receive a good return on your investment.   That is why we limit the number of vendors per business category.  Earlier this year, we changed our structure with a "Grab & Go" show.  Now, we are showcasing a beautiful new venue, along with the services our vendors can provide in this historic downtown setting.
