If you want to get a head start on your wedding planning in one day and all in one place, read on to find out what the expo has in store for you and your other half.
What is the MetLife Stadium Wedding Expo?
The MetLife Stadium Wedding Expo is an event hosted once a year by the American Bridal Show Company, which has been hosting wedding showcases in and around New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania since 1992. These shows have seen around half a million guests since first being hosted 29 years ago.
The expos held at the MetLife Stadium, in particular, have always drawn the biggest crowds, attracting around a thousand attendees each July.
It has since cultivated a reputation for being the prime event to find wedding professionals guaranteed to cater to your personal style and preferences thanks to its size alone.
MetLife Stadium Wedding Expo Tickets and Admission Information
Tickets for the wedding expo are free. All you have to do is register for the event on the American Bridal Show’s website. Also included in the admission is free parking at the stadium.
This event takes place entirely indoors in the stadium’s West Mezzanine Club, an air-conditioned luxury function room spanning 30,000 square feet and overlooking the football field.
What to Expect at MetLife Stadium Wedding Expo
American Bridal hosts countless shows of varying sizes. Since the July expo at the MetLife Stadium is the biggest one of the year, it is not uncommon to see attendees bring their entire wedding parties along. So if you’re seeking a second (or third or fourth!) opinion, you can take advantage of the free admission and bring the rest of the family along.
Past expos have included vendors showcasing everything from wedding stationery to entertainment, lingerie to photography services, and even luxury transportation for honeymoon vacations. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for those that offer day-of-show savings too.
At first glance, the sheer variety of choices available at the event may seem overwhelming. With booths customized to each vendor and the expo hall divided into sections for better navigation, you can choose the category you would like to tackle first and work your way around the room fuss-free.
The icing on top of this expo’s wedding cake is the raffle. If you’re feeling particularly lucky, you can enter for the chance to win the grand prize: weeklong honeymoon accommodations at a select destination of your choice.
