Wedding Party Marketplace

For 2015 we’ve added a new feature to the Wedding Party — our Marketplace.  Guests can purchase tickets to the Marketplace alone, where they can find last minute wedding accessories, gifts and craft items.  All these great wedding items — cake toppers, jewelry, guest books, ring pillows, gift cards, sparklers, handkerchiefs, vow books and more can be found in this 20 vendor section of the Wedding Party.  So even if your wedding is just around the corner, the Wedding Party will inspire — and you can check those last minute items off your list! General Admission and VIP Wedding Party guests have automatic access to the Marketplace, too!


There are a few choice spots left for vendors interested in participating in the Marketplace.  If you sell truly beautiful, well-crafted and original products for weddings, inquire about having a booth by emailing

What’s it all about?
Martha Stewart’s Wedding Party is a luxury bridal show that we’ve produced in New York for nine years.  In partnership with Meghan Andalman of Lovebird Events, we’ve introduced our show to Chicago; this will be our third year presenting the show in the Windy City.

We hand select the best wedding vendors, and allow them to represent their products and services to brides in an organic and lush format. Our Destination & Honeymoon Lounge brings the world under one roof and is geared to inspire and inform.

The event focuses on the latest trends, inspiring ideas and getting to know your potential wedding vendors. We also love the cake tastings, yummy samples and wonderful treats from our vendors for your gift bag!

We bring the experts to you – Darcy Miller, Editorial Director of Martha Stewart Weddings, brings the pages of the magazine to life as she shares her favorite trends, tips and ideas from the editors.

This year we introduce Wedding Party Marketplace to the Chicago Show.  Shop your favorite vendors’ products directly at the Wedding Party — a great opportunity to pick up your headpiece, jewelry, guest book, ring pillow or bridesmaids gifts.  Finally, we have break-out sessions with your favorite vendors so you can learn more about what they do, and the extraordinary weddings they work on.


It’s a lot for one day, but you’ll walk out with a great gift bag, a big head-start on your wedding planning and maybe even one of our fabulous raffle prizes!

What Our Partners Are Saying…

“The event is so much fun!  Partnering with the Wedding Library is wonderful — it’s a great event for weddings and brides.”

–Martha Stewart

“We are so happy to partner with the Wedding Library and Claudia Hanlin.  There’s a little something for everyone here.  At Martha Stewart Weddings we are all about the details and there are so many details here.  It’s so great to get all these ideas under one roof and have all these resources available for one special wedding planning day.”

–Darcy Miller, Martha Stewart Weddings, Editorial Director


The Martha Stewart Wedding Party is one of the most extraordinary events in the industry.  I think that every single bride should be here!

–Preston Bailey


All the vendors here are fantastic and ahead of the curve!

–Mindy Weiss

(This event is) not only for the brides, I feel like I learned a lot!  I love the level of sophistication offered… here to brides.

–Amsale Aberra

You’ve got the best of the best.  You’ve got the imports from the West Coast and the best from the East.  What an opportunity for a bride!

–Sylvia Weinstock

Every single vendor here is creme de la creme of New York and the eastern sea board.  You can plan your wedding in one day here with really unique and sophisticated vendors.

First let me say that I’m usually pretty pessimistic about wedding shows in general.  But I have to say, today may just have changed my opinion forever.  The show was fantastic!  You are your team put together such a polished, well-executed and well-attended event that I just want to say thank you!  But most importantly, I can’t say enough about the caliber of potential clientele who attended.  Seriously! Wow! Can’t believe what I was seeing.  Bride after bride, one was better than the next.  I can confidently say that we will land tremendous business from today.  Yeah!  Great job once again and I am so psyched to be a part of it!  I hope that the entertainment the crew provided today added to your already impressive reputation for a stellar event!  Let’s do it again next week. ;)

–Darren Olarsch, President, On the Move Events & Entertainment

There is no other wedding show of this caliber — the best of the best bridal vendors and fabulous destination choices for honeymoons and destinations in one spot; there’s no need for a bride-to-be to attend any other show!

–Kara BeBell and Harlan Debell, The Travel Siblings at Tzell Travel Group

Three years ago la Terrine decided to participate in the Wedding Library’s Martha Stewart Weddings Party event and we are so glad we did.  Year after year Claudia and her crew have hosted a flawless show. As a participation vendor we find the staff is efficient and helpful in answering all questions and set up and breakdown of the event is a simple process. We can’t wait for the upcoming show January 25th! Thanks Claudia, The Wedding Library and Martha Stewart for much continued success!

–Caroline Baroody, La Terrine (Registry and Tabletop)

This is truly an extraordinary event for anyone getting married.

–Colin Cowie
