The Queensland Brides Wedding and Honeymoon Expo started in 1996. Back then it was known as the Queensland Wedding Spectacular. Since then, it’s grown to become a leading wedding expo in Australia. Brides from all over Australia make their way to Brisbane each year. The wedding expo is now held twice a year – in Autumn and Spring – at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.
In 2016, we will celebrate 20 years as Queensland’s leading wedding expo! In our 20 years, over 50,000 brides-to-be and 110,000 family and friends have visited the Queensland Brides Wedding and Honeymoon Expo to plan their perfect day and honeymoon.
As we head into our 20th year, here are some of the key achievements we are proud to have achieved:
A wedding expo is such a great way to feel part of a bridal community. Since 1996 the Queensland Brides Wedding and Honeymoon Expo has brought brides from all over Queensland – and Australia – together. Here’s a brief timeline of our history and major milestones:
We couldn’t have achieved all of these amazing milestones without the support of thousands of brides from all over Australia. We’re also incredibly grateful to our amazing selection of Australia’s best wedding vendors. To everyone involved throughout the years, we thank you for your support! We look forward to continuing delivering our world class wedding expo for years to come!
Without a doubt, wedding fashion is on everyone’s mind at the wedding expo.
Witness on-trend designs in dresses, suits, mother-of-the-bride and bridesmaid attire with our daily fashion parades showcasing the best designs from Queensland bridal designers, choreographed by Pam Tamblyn of Tamblyn Modeling Agency. This is Queensland’s biggest, ongoing fashion parade dedicated to weddings. You’re sure to find your perfect wedding gown at the wedding expo.
Saturday: 11:30am and 2:00pm
Sunday: 11:30am and 2:00pm
Behind the scenes of the wedding expo, a dedicated team works hard to ensure everything goes off without a hitch.
Here’s your chance to take a sneak peek behind the scenes to meet the people behind the expo!
My name is Rhonda. I’m one of the organisers. I’ve been involved with the Queensland Brides Wedding & Honeymoon Expo for 20 years!
I love greeting our excited couples as they arrive and then seeing the look of amazement on their faces when they walk through the front door and see the gorgeously decorated stands and feel the buzz of the expo – it’s such fun to be a part of that experience.
If you’ve never been to the expo before, expect to see a range of wedding services you may never have thought of. Expect to talk to the industry’s top professionals and meet our fashion designers face to face. Expect to find your dream honeymoon destination, from anywhere in the world. Expect to see Queensland’s most beautiful wedding attire. And expect to see it all under one huge roof!
Oh yes … and expect to spend at least 4 hours on your feet – there’s over 140 exhibitors. So wear comfortable shoes!

Expo weekend is always a huge event. It’s such a massive few days for all of us. I love seeing all of the fantastic brides and grooms (along with their families, friends, bridal party and support teams!) and sharing in the excitement of their wedding planning.
We bring together the very best wedding suppliers, designers, artisans and experts all under one roof, so it’s a real buzz to watch it all unfold over the three days.
My favourite part of the weekend has to be our daily fashion parade. It’s fun and fabulous, and always inspiring!
I’m the event coordinator. I’ve worked on the Queensland Brides Wedding & Honeymoon Expo happily for over 13 years!
What I love most about the wedding expo is watching all the brides-to-be, friends and families expressions when they first enter the show. They are truly excited and overwhelmed with everything.
