This is our first year offering the venue tour. How did we choose the venues? We had to switch plans last minute when our booked wedding fair venue didn't pan out as planned. The venues who were chosen to participate in this year's venue tour are venues who signed up to do our wedding fair, and who were located within an hour drive of Missoula. We recognize not everyone is able to participate in this year's venue tour on such short notice, but depending on how this year goes, we're considering adding a Flathead Tour, and possibly doing both the wedding fair and the venue tour next year!
HOME BASE/BRIDAL HAUS: The Merc (Residence Inn), Missoula
Little Smith Creek Ranch, Victor

Booth fees are $250 for a space at one of our venues.
We will be limiting the types of vendors at each venue (i.e., one photographer per venue)

We plan on having scheduled site tours (see timing above), so our buses leave on time, between venues. Maps for the venue tour MUST be picked up at The Merc, and brides are required to buy tickets to attend this event. (It's a minimal fee for a ticket, but it helps cover the cost of the event, and helps us plan the amount of transportation we need!) Guests may choose to drive themselves if they don't have a full day to spend on the buses, but they will still be required to purchase tickets to get our event map & attend Bridal Haus.
This event features Western Montana Wedding Association members only. In order to participate, you'll need to be a member of the Association. Not a member? Click HERE to find out more about membership and why we've been going strong for the last 4 years, and still growing!
Bridal Haus is a pop-up Wedding Decor Swap! 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 tickets to our event just to shop the Bridal Haus, so it's a great driving factor to get attendance as well.
