January is definitely the month when brides-to-be focus on wedding planning as evidenced by the number of wedding shows in Toronto. In addition to Canada’s Bridal Show, The Wedding Co. Show will be hosted at The Carlu from January 11 to 13, 2013. The Wedding Co. Show offers a more intimate venue, deluxe wedding vendors and personalized service for both brides and grooms. What’s unique about this Toronto wedding show is first, its opulent surroundings, second, it provides the chance to meet with potential caterers in a smaller, less-frenzied atmosphere and third, wedding vendors are hand-picked and where possible, local and modern.
Some of the upscale wedding vendors, designers and caterers appearing at The Wedding Co. Show include Twobirds Bridesmaid, Valencienne Bridal, Catherine Langlois Bridal Design, Richard Emmanuel Photography, Heartline Pictures Inc. and Bruce Zinger Photography, as well as unique Toronto wedding venues Malaparte at TIFF Bell Lightbox, the Thompson Toronto, Stephen Bulger Gallery, the Art Gallery of Ontario, The Royal Conservatory, Taboo Resort Golf & Spa, and the Bram and Bluma Appel Salon at the Toronto Reference Library.
