What is Today’s Bride Magazine & Shows?
Today’s Bride Magazine & Shows is Northeast Ohio’s premier wedding resource, connecting engaged couples to local wedding professionals. By publishing annual Today’s Bride Cleveland and Akron magazines, two editions of our Lovebook, and producing five bridal shows each year, Today’s Bride offers brides and grooms constant access to the latest trends and introduces them to experts in the field who can help create their dream wedding.
I can’t wait to see the next issue! When will it be out?
Today’s Bride Magazine is distributed annually to two markets: Cleveland and Akron/Canton. The Cleveland edition comes out in June and the Akron/Canton edition comes out in November. We also produce a Lovebook – which has two issues per year – released in June & January. Both the Lovebook and the local issue of our magazine are handed out free at every bridal show, and are available for viewing online!
Where can I get a copy of the magazine?
Today’s Bride Magazine is distributed in various locations throughout Northeast Ohio, by our vendors, and at every bridal show. Click here to find out where you can pick up your own (free!) copy, or order one from our site. Hint: The magazine can also be viewed entirely online!
I just tied the knot! Can you feature my wedding online or in the magazine?
Congratulations! Whether or not you can be featured in our print or online content depends on whether your photographer is a client of ours. If you’re interested, please fill out this form, and we’ll get back to you on whether or not we can feature your wedding!
What is the Today’s Bride Discount Card?
The Today’s Bride Discount Card is a great resource for both brides and vendors. Offering engaged couples 10% off a booking with participating vendors (up to $100 off a service), this bright pink, reusable card is a great way to plan a wedding without breaking the bank. Check out this list of companies that accept it.
So, what is a bridal show all about?
A bridal show is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a day-out with your bridal party, mom, or fiancé! Get answers to your questions, advice from local wedding experts, and inspiration for your big day! From large-scale convention centers to small, boutique-style events, Today’s Bride offers you the perfect opportunity to plan your entire wedding under one roof. Oh, and we produce five bridal shows a year (yes, five!). Check out our upcoming show dates!
What should I bring to a bridal show?
We suggest bringing a pen & paper to take notes, your phone to add contacts and take pictures, and a calendar to make appointments. You may decide to make a deposit, so bring along your checkbook or credit card. Knowing your wedding date, color scheme, and bringing along a binder of inspiration can be a huge help when you’re trying to convey your ideas to vendors. Comfortable shoes are a must, and printed address labels that include your name, phone number, email, wedding date, and venue will ensure that your hand won’t cramp from the constant writing. No need to bring a bag to hold all your pamphlets and goodies—we provide those at the door! Check out our Bridal Survival Guide for more helpful tips!
Who should I bring to a bridal show?
That’s totally up to you! Whether it’s just you and your fiancé, your mom and maid/matron of honor, or your entire bridal party, we welcome anyone to our events!
Can I bring children?
Children are welcome to attend our shows, and kids under 6 years old get in free! But because we suggest scheduling at least half a day for our shows, we do advise against bringing children because they tire easily. If you do decide to bring a little one along, keep in mind that strollers are hard to maneuver around the booths, displays, and the other guests.
What do I wear to the bridal show?
We don’t have a dress code, but we recommend being presentable as you’ll be meeting with people you may hire to work for you on your wedding day. Make sure you’re comfortable, though, as you’ll be walking a lot. When you’re picking out an outfit, consider what you would wear if you were going to speak with a possible venue, DJ, or officiant—as that’s exactly what you’ll be doing at one of our shows!
I would like to advertise. What are my options?
We would love for you to advertise with us! We have three outlets: Today’s Bride Magazine, Today’s Bride Shows, and TodaysBride.com. Check out our Today’s Bride Pros page or contact us for more information on your options and which outlet would benefit you the best!
What is a Featured Partner and how can I become one?
The Today’s Bride Featured Partner Program is custom-designed and implemented to set your company apart from the competition. Unlike other awards or status honors, the program will be a proactive and ongoing initiative encouraging magazine readers, online visitors, and bridal show attendees to look for and choose Featured Partner companies affiliated with Today’s Bride – now and for years to come.
