Married in Milwaukee to host first-ever virtual wedding show June 24
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Couples getting married have the opportunity to join a virtual wedding show hosted by Married in Milwaukee, to connect with dozens of vendors representing local venues, caterers, photographers, florists and other professionals.
The event will take place Wednesday, June 24.
“While weddings this summer are converting to smaller, more intimate events, we’re expecting that 2021 and 2022 will explode due to pent up demand and rescheduled dates,” says Angela Quigley, co-owner of Married in Milwaukee. “We’re hosting this virtual event to help our vendors so they can get back on their feet and connect with couples who need their services.”
According to a news release, the Live Virtual Event will bring couples and Married in Milwaukee vendors together face-to-face in a live and interactive environment. The platform requires no additional software or hardware – a compatible browser on a desktop or mobile device is all that’s needed.
To attend, couples register in advance at boothcentral.com and then simply logon on June 24. They’ll enter a Live Virtual Event that will feature the sights and sounds of a wedding show.
Each vendor will have their own “shop” that includes photos, videos, a web site link and ways to connect live.
Vendors are available by live video and text chats to answer individual questions and provide additional information.
Some vendors, including venues and photographers, will give virtual tours of their spaces and studios.
Milwaukee Airwaves and Sound By Design will provide live music with DJ sets.
Angela and Greg Quiqley, owners of Married in Milwaukee, will share news and updates throughout the evening.
“Our Married in Milwaukee vendors are getting inquiries from couples so we’re already seeing the wedding industry starting to rebound,” says Angela. “Weddings provide a bright spot in today’s world. They’re a time to celebrate love and happiness. We’re excited we can help brides and grooms plan their special day, even if their wedding is a bit further out than originally anticipated.”
