The Portland Bridal Show for 2013 is proof positive that no matter that there may be in a challenging economy…the wedding must go on! From the most elegant gown to very practical edible table displays, brides-to-be will find it all at the Northwest’s largest wedding event and fashion show.

Now in its 34th year, the Portland Bridal Show’s exhibition of wedding fashion, photography, catering, honeymoon travel, and “everything wedding” will set the tone for the 2013 wedding season (May-September in Oregon) and will run January 12th and 13th at the Oregon Convention Center. The event is expected to draw over 9,500 visitors. Tickets will be $9 at the door, with advance-purchase coupons available at

The most popular highlight of the event is the bridal fashion shows, where brides and their friends can get a first look at the latest trends
The bridal industry has traditionally weathered most economic downturns. Many of the event’s exhibitors will offer Show specials featuring added savings if the bride purchases within a short timeframe.

$9 admission, children 5 and under free, advanced discount tickets available at A complete wedding/reception/honeymoon will be given away to a lucky bride for just signing-up. Last year’s value exceeded $24,000. No purchase necessary. Presented by 105.1 The Buzz radio, KPTV/KPDX television and The Oregonian.

∙ Five Skamania Lodge Honeymoon Getaways to be given away at the Show (one per fashion show – some restrictions apply)

Complimentary gifts are available for pre-registration on-line

    This might be the year for me to get hitched and I’ve never been to a show before so this would be a great chance for me to check things out!

  2. megan January 3, 2013 at 12:13 pm #

    This would be a fun thing to do with my sister who is getting married this year. I might even get some ideas and be lucky enought to talk my guy of 7 years to finally give in to me.

    I’m interested in going to this fun event because after seven years together and three beautiful children I have yet to marry the man that is the best dad to our kids that I know. We have planned and put off our wedding for six years do to money issues and me having cold feet..yes I said me the female of the relationship. It would be wonderful to spend a fun day dreaming with him at this event and maybe trying again to actually get hitched. Thank you.

    I would like to win tickets to give them to my dude friend who just got engaged to a girl he barely knows and doesn’t love. I’m hoping to send him to this show as a reality check so he can see what a foolish mistake he’s making.

    I have attended bridal shows as a supportive bridesmaid for the past 4 years. Filling out forms, commenting on dresses, and standing by as a soundboard for wedding ideas and emotional banter has been my role for years. Recently engaged (12/12/12!) now it is MY TURN! I’m excited for the upcoming months of making my fiancé and I’s vision come to life. I plan on taking my mother with me. As her only daughter she is enjoying this time as much as I. Congratulations to all the brides to be out there! See you at the show!

  25. Jessa January 4, 2013 at 11:48 am #

    When my fiance and I go to wedding shows, we sneak drinks to the vendors who look the most harried. This is reason enough to ensure that we are in attendance.

  26. Linda Krewson January 4, 2013 at 8:22 pm #

    I’d love to win some tickets! We had to postpone our wedding last year and want to plan for this summer but need some great ideas on a small budget!

  27. Peter January 5, 2013 at 6:06 pm #

    Three long time photographers have teamed up to shoot events/weddings: Ridic Photo, ridiculously good images
    We’d like to scope out the show to see if it’s a place for us to advertise/have a presence.

    My soon to be bride and I will be getting married in May of 2013. We would love to attend one of the shows to help us with the final details of our special day.

    I would love to win the tickets, so my fiance and I can attend the Bridal show! We are both still in college, and are planning on getting married as soon as we graduate. There’s nothing better than marrying your High School sweetheart :)

    One of my bridesmaids from 2011 just got engaged in December. It would be a great way of thanking her for her support during my wedding to be able to take her here to plan for hers.

  33. Robbie January 8, 2013 at 1:08 pm #

    A bridal show? Holy Cow I never even knew there was such a thing. BUT now that I do, I would like to take my niece who just got engaged. Do you dress up, or is this like the toy & collectable shows that I am usually found at? Will I go into shock? Will I be the oldest person there?
