Remember being a little girl and thinking of your dream wedding? What your dress would look like, who would be there, the food, the music. It seemed simple to just dream it. 

Imagine all of the essential things you need for your wedding in one event. At the Washington Wedding Experience you and your fiance can browse wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses, cakes and venues. Experience 240 exhibits including fashion shows.

A variety of wedding professionals are on hand to discuss your visions for the big day. Get inspired at the gallery of flowers in the Wedding Inspiration Gallery. Tantalize your taste buds by trying cakes, and samples of food from different vendors. And get some tips on how to plan your wedding and where to begin at the various wedding workshops.

Lastly, organize your experience with their new digital device: Poken©. This device allows you to ditch carrying around a bunch of bags, instead collect information digitally from vendors you are interested in. The device provides you with information from the vendors as well as their contact information, and it also lets the vendors know that you are interested in what they have to offer.
