Welcome to the Vendors Lounge!
The Vendors Lounge is for vendors only and is full of resources to help grow your business and connect with engaged couples. This page is your planning dashboard that will include easy access to areas on our site. Be sure to check back often for updated navigation options to complete your online expo experience.
Have you ever tried to sign up for a local expo or local wedding show only to find out that you couldn’t reserve a booth because your wedding category was filled up? Most local wedding shows only have a certain amount of space per category, which leaves a lot of vendors left out. Here at Wedding Expo Online there are no booths to rent, or limits to how many vendors per category can participate in our live online wedding community.
Your monthly membership fee helps with advertising of this site to bring qualified engaged couples directly to you. By offering our online wedding community to you, the vendor, you get to decide what features on our website you want to participate in. Wedding Expo Online is the platform many vendors have been looking for.
To enter the live expo be sure to log in and join us on the Center Stage page.
