Toronto’s National Bridal show, held at the Direct Energy Centre, is much smaller in scale than some of the other shows on the January show circuit. As per the common wedding show format, most vendors did offer some type of show deal. My advice is to do your research on all the vendors before you go, so you can book with confidence at the show and take advantage of these deals. Being the net-savvy bride that I am, I just can’t imagine not doing some research before booking a vendor!
I did find some real gems at the show, and we were able to get a great deal on tuxedo rentals from Tip Top tailors ($30 off each rental). Moores was also promoting a tux deal, but when we got to the store with our show slip in hand, we were told there were no such deal. In any case, check out these highlights.
