"With only six months until our 15th annual bridal expo and fashion, we believe now is the ideal time to announce a name and venue change," said Cathy Demetropoulos, editor of Chicago Bride magazine. ”This is the premier bridal expo in Chicagoland and therefore a 'must attend' event for any bride planning a wedding here. It is free with pre-registration, and there are all kinds of discounts, samples, package deals and special promotions. We are thrilled about the new partnership we have established with The Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, a first class and spacious facility."

Admission is free with pre-registration or only $10 at the door. For more information, visit
