A BIG thanks again for all your support!

Andrew Stewart, Owner Peri Expo, Exhibition & Display Solutions
Congrats, Linda, on a fine Bridal Expo. “I do!” seems to have hit the button … the grind, stress and extra hours have come to fruition and you can be very proud.
Well done on your tenacious appetite for toughing out the unchartered and taking risks where others fear to tread. You did it, Linda and I’m grateful for the opportunity to walk alongside you some of the ways. Thank you for entrusting me to uphold part of your great initiatives. I feel proud of my association with “I do!” and, Harwood Promotions.
Barbara Robertson, well respected fashion journalist, fashion choreographer for I Do! Bridal Fashion Shows
Thank you for a very professional and well-organised event. We were very impressed with the level of attendance with lots of interest in our properties and exhibit. Well done! We also think that now without the confusion of two bridal events this one can definitely soar! We also loved the innovative design choices and stage shows which were on trend and fresh - and added some great flair, interest in the show and pizazz.
Tracy Degoumois, Mantis Collection
Well done on such a beautiful event. PE Brides are privileged with an event of such high standards.

Media24 (Express and Die Burger) are proud of our association as print media partners for the I Do Bridal Expo.
The 2018 event was indeed another successful PE highlight and we are ecstatic that we nearly doubled in foot count this year.
The overwhelming response speaks true to the professionalism and calibre of the sponsors and organizers of I Do.
We hope to make a bigger and better spectacle of the event in 2019.
Tasmia Esmail, General Manager, Media
We attended the "i do" Bridal expo two weeks ago, it was such fun! albeit exhausting! We handed out over 2000 flyers with our vendor’s contact details, and 500 magazines with their adverts, within 7 days after the expo we had 38 brides register on the website & download the APP! ... and we haven't even emailed the brides from the expo database yet!

Wow! Wow! Wow! Weeks later and we're still buzzing from the 2018 I Do! Wedding Expo!
It was absolute perfection - from the jaw-dropping fashion shows and extravagant competitions to the exquisite wedding vendors. Nothing could have prepared us for the sheer volume of visitors this year and we thoroughly enjoyed networking with each and every one of them. A heartfelt thank you to Linda and the team for involving us in one of the finest expos we've ever attended!
