    Love Notes

    Devoted Columbus logo emblem.

    I just wanted to thank you for the invitation to The Wedding Experience. What a fun event! I would highly recommend it to anyone getting married. That atmosphere is much less invasive and personable than one of those big expos. My fiance and I had such a great time and although we’re getting married out of state, I got SO many ideas from the decor to the invitations that is was a HUGE help. Thanks so much!


    I’m so glad that I could attend The Wedding Experience and bring my fiance along with me. We attended with another couple who is also in the planning process and loved that you could accommodate us all being transported together to each facility. (thank you) Having us driven to each location was great especially seeing the different kinds of vehicles and not having the hassle of trying to drive around the city.

    Thank you for having me at the experience. It was definitely worth coming out, and it was very different from other wedding shows; it wasn’t just a mass of vendors. This was enjoyable… I will definitely participate again.


    What a great bridal show! I met wonderful wedding professionals and look forward to planning my wedding with them in 2011. I’ve never been to anything like this, it was nice to see different locations and get such great ideas.


    This was the first wedding-related event I could bring my fiance to that he actually enjoyed! Food, drinks, and prizes – that was an easy sell! Thanks for all of the great wedding ideas – it was nice to see it all set up like it would be at a reception. I’m not the creative type, but I now have tons of ideas!!!

    Kelly & Matt

    I loved the event as a whole. I felt I was able to really see the services of many vendors, talk with them, and get information. It was a fun date night for my fiance and I, and gave us the chance to look at wedding stuff in a non-stressful way. We got a lot of ideas not directly related to specific vendors, and just had a lot of fun! We may try to come again in April!


    The venues really make or break this experience, it was great to get to see 3 varieties and to compare! Having cocktails and appetizers really get the grooms involved! Overall, good experience!
