OLWE 2019 was such a hit with soon-to-be-wed couples and local wedding vendors, that we started planning the next expo right away! Then the unforeseeable happened: A global pandemic.
We saw our industry get hit hard and wanted to find a way to help. We saw an opportunity for us to shift the event to an online platform—keeping the momentum going for both couples and our vendors.
The COVID-19 pandemic is changing how we live our lives. It is hard to predict and plan a wedding when so much is unknown, but it is possible! We want couples to be prepared, aware of industry changes and fluctuations, and familiar with up and coming trends. We also want them to connect with you—Manitoba wedding industry professionals who will make navigating their wedding planning as safe and stress-free as can be.
An expo is the most efficient way to make this happen, and our priority was to make it easy for both guests and vendors to enjoy it from the comfort and safety of their homes.
