Vendor Feature: SW Wedding Expo
The best place for a bride to start planning her wedding is at a bridal show. It’s a great place to see all the ares of a wedding day that need attention. We have a great addition to our list of wonderful Saskatchewan bridal shows this year: SW Wedding Expo. We asked Kristin, lead coordinator, about all the details of this show in Southern Saskatchewan.
Sask Ever After: How long has your show been around?
Kristin: This is the very first year. I am so excited to bring a new and different experience to south-west couples!
SEA: Why did you create a show like this?
Kristin: I created this show after seeing an opportunity for growth for the existing wedding scene in Swift Current. As a wedding planner, I have the goal of making wedding planning simpler and more fun for every couple I work with. This is my way of doing that for so many more couples than I could ordinarily work with one on one. Sometimes it can be hard to find all the best local options, especially in a smaller community. I had a dream of connecting local couples with local businesses in a way that was simple and beautiful!
SEA: Will there be a fashion show or anything else taking place at a certain time during the show?
Kristin: Yes! There’s a Fashion Show at 1:00, featuring Unforgettable You and Tayvia Alphonse. At 3:00 there’s a How To Session with DJ Richy Roy on Choosing the Right DJ For You, including information on how to run your own music if you decide to DIY your music! Couples won’t want to miss either of these!
SEA: What can brides expect from your bridal show?
Kristin: Brides AND grooms can expect uniquely south-west Saskatchewan content, as all of our vendors are based out of, and serve, the local area. Come ready to connect with and book a variety of different local vendors.
They can also expect loads of inspiration, as many of our vendors are participating in a variety of demos and features so that you can see what they have to offer up close, in real life. Plus, if your bride just drags you along with her, there will be an incredible concession from the Smoke Shack, and a lounge to relax in while you wait.
SEA:Why is your show different from the other ones in the Province?
Kristin: It’s different because it’s unique to the south-west. You can’t find most of these vendors at any other shows in larger centres.
Plus, it’s a complete weekend experience. Friday night (February 9th), we’re having a Girls’ Night Out where brides can bring their whole entourage and experience a taste of what these vendors can do for them. A full reception will be set up, including some incredible decor, food, music, entertainment, and prizes! I cannot wait to share this evening with all the brides!

What else should couples know about attending?
Kristin: They can purchase VIP tickets while they last! VIPs get front row seats to the Girls’ Night Out, Fashion Show, and How To Session. Plus they get early entrance to the show to get a head start on chatting with vendors.
