We went to their event in which they advertised that there would be 90 vendors. Once we got to the event they made us wait in line for over an hour. Told us there were 60 vendors and we could pay for labels with our info on them. We get inside and low and behold it's now only 40 vendors. There was not much for vendors and most were people who spam you. They just want your money and its not worth it. Even for free...it's not worth it...don't waste your time.

The Great Wedding Expo in Phoenix should be renamed the Mediocre Wedding Expo. Lots of direct sales businesses. The worst? A time share company with 1-star reviews on Yelp. Poor quality vendors for the most part. No tastings like they had indicated on Twitter and in ads. $5 spent to get my contact info printed wasn't even worth it. We stayed two hours and when we left there wasn't anyone coming in to the event. It was a disappointment.

I made a big mistake when I accepted my two free tickets to the Great Bridal Expo that rolled into Philadelphia on Sept. 21. Initially I had planned to go, but my plans changed and my fiance and I were unable to attend. However, that did not stop vendors at the show from contacting me. Today is October 17th and I am still receiving vendor e-mail spam and phone calls from 800 numbers, most of which don't leave messages. I signed up for the bridal show to learn more about Philadelphia-area vendors and instead I am a walking spam-target. It even opened me up to a scam very similar to this one which I luckily discovered before completing the phone call. Summary: If you want to learn more about local vendors, skip The Great Bridal Expo and use a trust-worthy peer-reviewed Web site that won't spam you.

The vendors are a little aggressive, and it was so packed. Get there early and bring something to read if you plan to stay for the fashion show. You will be done with the vendors and waiting.

Attended the dissappointing 9/20/15 show at Hilton Mark Center, Alexandria. Minimal vendors, $16 to attend, $6 to get labels to register for sweepstakes which vendors were ignorant of, $9 for parking. Dont mind the investment if the event is worthwhile. The few vendors was delightful. Not a good us of four hours for two persons.

Event held at large Hilton who did not participate, during 12n-4pm. Expected food samples, hors doeuvres, cake tastings, tour of hotel. The hotel bridal office was not even open. No food vendors to sample at all.

Short bridal fashion show was lovely.

Many of the door prize winners were not in attendance. Not enough vendors to hold three hours of time or attention. Will not consider the Hilton Alexandria or the GREAT BRIDAL EXPO in the future.
