Many of us fantasize about our wedding day our entire lives. We mentally plan the music, the ambiance, our groomsmen and/or maids of honor, and long for the entire process to go off without a hitch. The planning and coordinating can be overwhelming.

Thankfully, the Dubuque Bridal Expo 2023 can help you tag those bases. Happening Sunday, January 15th from 12pm to 3pm at the Grand River Center in Dubuque, this isn't your average bridal show — this is a one-of-a-kind Experience.

Last year, event organizer Stacy Raap went above and beyond in her commitment to assuring a successful event. The 2022 Dubuque Bridal Expo was loaded with giveaways and brimful with exhibitors who welcomed guests with open arms. The plan for 2023? Very simple. Go bigger, yet still retain all the elements that made people love last year's event so much.

  • Bride or Groom and 2 guests
  • VIP Bride To Be or Groom To Be Lanyard
  • Fresh Single Stem
  • Complimentary Cake Pop
  • Complimentary Signature Drinks
  • Complimentary Signature Scent
  • Complimentary copy of Amidst Magazine
  • Entry into VIP ONLY prize drawing
  • Additional entry into the Grand Prize Drawings
  • Zazous Tote bag filled with tons of wonderful discounts, deals, gifts, & promotions

Stacy Raap, who stopped in the studio today, also mentioned that various exhibitors will be on-site offering the best in attire, jewelry, makeup/hair, venues, catering, DJs, videography, and so much more:

But even that isn't everything. Raap added that over $10,000 in prizes will be given away at the 2023 expo. Drawings will be held throughout the event with the goal to make them interactive and fun for all eventgoers.

The 2023 Dubuque Bridal Expo is happening on Sunday, January 15th from 12-3pm at the Grand River Center in Dubuque. You can purchase VIP tickets here and read more about the event on their Facebook page. Also take a listen to my interview with Stacy Raap below!
