The time?
10am to 3pm

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!
