WEDDING FAIR / VENUE TOUR/ VIRTUAL EVENT
So you're interested in exhibiting at our wedding fair! See more information below as to why we're the best wedding fair in Western Montana! You can also click the button below to see why brides love us too!
This year is going to be a little different. A little virtual event, a little wedding fair and a little venue tour. We had every intention of having everything in one spot but due to COVID we have been forced to make some changes so we are in compliance!
All details will be available to you in the next 2 weeks! If you have any questions please email email@example.com.
LIMITED VENDORS - Watch for updates
We're a boutique wedding event - meaning we're not a huge wedding fair exposition. We limit categories for our event, so it's in your best interest to apply as soon as membership opens. We do this for the benefit of both the clients and for our participating vendors. It provides potential clients & brides with a wider variety of vendor types, giving them the ability to plan their entire wedding at the event if they chose to do so. It also ensures that you get the most exposure for your business, by not over saturating vendor categories.
For 2020 we will have a few options for you. An on line presence only, which you will go live and or post video. We will have an opportunity if you would like to teach a class on line as well.
We will have a number of venues for the venue tour. If you would like to be a vendor at one of these locations, you will have the opportunity to be on site and have an on line presence!
What we would love to see is at least one of each vendor at each venue! Space is limited but we will be a little more flexible with categories of vendors.
If more than the limited quantity of each type of vendor apply, we begin a wait list. Once we reach September 1st, we revisit the wait list to see which categories we need to expand, to fill remaining booth spaces. Here are our categories when registration opens on August 1st, to members:
(2) Apparel & Jewelry
(2) Bar & Spirits
(3) Beauty & Spa
(2) Cakes & Confections
(3) Caterers & Restaurants
(2) DJ Services
(5) Equipment Rentals

We want our wedding fair to be applicable to those who attend - meaning a Western Montana Wedding Fair should be represented by vendors who are local! We keep registration open to members first, before opening up registration to non-members. We grow our local wedding community through this continued support of other local vendors.
This year due to COVID Bridal Haus has moved on line!!! We're the only Western Montana wedding fair which features a consignment market as part of our event! This allows past brides to bring in their previously loved wedding decor for resale, and brides-to-be love to shop for a great deal! Vendors often reduce excess inventory as well - do you have decorations that never get used? This is a perfect opportunity in front of an audience that's captive & ready to buy! Consign at Bridal Haus, and earn a few extra bucks! Brides often purchase advance tickets to our wedding fair just to shop the early bird at Bridal Haus, so it's a great driving factor to get attendance as well.
