The Wedding Expo

The Wedding Expo ‘vows to wow’ at the Sun Park at Sibaya Casino & Entertainment Kingdom.

This year, The Wedding Expo in association with Sun International, will be taking place in Durban on the 25th and 26th August 2018 in the Sun Park at Sibaya Casino. This bespoke event venue is a perfect match for The Wedding Expo and promises to be nothing short of spectacular.

The Wedding Expo has been running since 2002 and hosts four exhibitions a year.  The team works all year to promote the bridal industry within South Africa and they have to date organised 37 successful bridal exhibitions.

There is so much preparation and passion that goes into organising your wedding day, The Wedding Expo is there to help ensure it’s your most memorable! With the most comprehensive and creative bridal exhibitors in the country, all showcasing a wide variety of wares and services and bringing with them a wealth of knowledge, this is the event that will ensure your day is without doubt the start of your ‘happily ever after’.

At the Wedding Expo you’ll find everything from the perfect stationery, beautiful blooms and breath-taking wedding gowns to gorgeous jewellery, tantalising table décor and hedonistic honeymoons. Also on hand will be South Africa’s top wedding planners, photographers and caterers, each with a wealth of experience, expertise and advice on how to tailor your wedding to your individual needs.

“As a digital wedding planning platform we decided to take a stand at The Wedding Expo in the hope that we could gain exposure to thousands of people in a short period of time. Our main aim was to gain a spike in users/customers on our platform. We indeed achieved our goal and more!” says Bruce Kay, co-founder of Bloom Weddings. “We were pleasantly surprised at what we achieved in August 2017 and as a result have committed to all 4 shows in 2018. We found the physical presence at TWE not only helped us gain exposure, but also engaging with that amount of people helped give us the assurance that our business is very relevant and got wonderful feedback from the aspiring couples.”

“Whether the thought of planning a wedding excites or terrifies you, you will find everything you need at The Wedding Expo all under one roof, making the entire planning process much easier. From a small and intimate event to a large glamorous affair, there are so many wonderful ideas to help you create the wedding of your dreams. As the premier bridal expo, The Wedding Expo attracts the largest number of service providers in one venue,” says Amanda Cunningham, The Wedding Expo’s Managing Director.

If you visit The Wedding Expo in the Sun Park at Sibaya Casino then you are also eligible to enter the incredible “Win a Wedding” competition – this is certianly a bride’s dream come true!

Here she learnt to cultivate her music and at the same time began a love affair with food that eventually led to the recent launch of her first cookbook, Cucina in South Africa.
