Want all the inside info on Saskatchewan’s newest bridal show in 2018? We have you covered! We talked to Mandy from Once Upon a Bride and asked her all the things.  From what we hear, this is one wedding event you won’t want to miss out on!

Once Upon a Bride is on Sunday, January 21, 2018. The show is being held at Prairieland Park in Saskatoon.

A large part of our show is the social media. We have massive campaigns featuring our vendors on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, but wait until you see our Snapchat surprise! Still coming is our custom feeds live with our vendors, complete with promo info at bottom of screen and utilizing a green screen! 

I have been working at wedding shows for 20 years in some way and I have never seen anything like this show!
