What to Expect at the Richmond Weddings Show
It’s kind of hard for us to explain what you can expect when you come to the Richmond Weddings Summer Show on July 16th!! We’re so close to this process, and to us, it seems simple: you’ll come, you’ll meet vendors, you’ll leave feeling like you’ve gotten some serious planning “to do’s” checked off the list. But really, there’s SO much more to expect. We have been producing our shows for over 20 years each one gets better than the last!
On Sunday, July 16th, you’ll arrive to Altria Theater. You’ll find parking on the street or in the large parking deck directly across from the theater. There is a ton of detailed parking information for you HERE!
Upon entering Altria, you’ll see a WHOLE new side to this gorgeous landmark. You’ll be greeted by our friendly Show staff as well as volunteers from Altria whose love for the theater is DEEP . . . sometimes 20-30 years deep!
After checking in with our staff, getting your special “I’m Engaged!!” wristbands, a FREE copy of our newest issue of Richmond Weddings (before it’s even in stores!) and a program of events, you’ll have a choice: head downstairs to the ballroom, upstairs to the lounges, or directly to your right or left.
**Our first 400 guests with Early Admission tickets will also get some fun Richmond Weddings swag!!**
If you choose to start by going DOWN the stairs, you’ll find the coat check and concessions bar where there will be snacks, drinks and cocktails available along with a few vendors there to greet you. Once you pass through the concessions area, you will enter the massive Altria ballroom. This stunning room will be filled with vendors who are eager and ready to help you get inspired for your wedding.
If you choose to start by going UP the stairs, you’ll find our 3rd level of vendors in the luxurious lounge areas. There will be amazing cakes to taste, barbecue that will knock your socks off, gorgeous wedding gowns, stunning florals, and much, much more!
If you choose to start by turning directly to your right or left, you will find fabulous items from the Caroline Doll Shop, more amazing southern soul food, answers to all of your wedding transportation questions, more lovely wedding gowns, and more! Clearly, you’ll have a busy day and LOTS to see!
But don’t worry, you’ll have plenty of time to check out each of the THREE floors of vendors!
Now, what ELSE can you expect to find at our Show? At 1:30PM, you’ll be absolutely dazzled by the fashion show right on the infamous stage of Altria Theater. Caroline of POSH PR and Tiffanys Bridal & The Groom’s Corner are cooking up a high fashion experience that you HAVE to see. Doors to main theater will open at 1:00 and EVERYONE will have a seat!
