Our fashion parades bring glamour, class and style to the catwalk. The fashion parades held at the Melbourne Bridal & Wedding Expo are not your average shows. We have exclusive and one-of-a-kind designers featuring in the show.
A newly designed show means the latest trends in the bridal and menswear industry, featuring glowing models and styling inspiration.
The first parade is showing at 11am and the second to show at 1pm. You will love our range of gowns and menswear. Take a peek at our fashion parade from the January Melbourne Bridal & Wedding Expo fashion parade.
Be one of the first 500 brides-to-be to arrive to receive an exclusive VIP Bridal Pamper Bag, worth RRP $200+. With inclusions from fabulous bridal suppliers, you will want to make sure you are one of the first 500 Brides in line on the day to make sure you can take one home with you!
We launched our very first experience lounge experience in July 2018 which was a massive hit and success for our brides. Offering something a little different to the usual bridal expo offering, brides and their companions are invited into the beautiful zone to taste, touch, trial, feel and be pampered by exhibitors in this space.
Follow us on Facebook to keep up to date with the exciting things this zone will bring for the next event!
