“I used the Wedding Planner and Guide to research various wedding vendors in Madison for my wedding this Summer. It was really helpful, as it had vendors from all of the various wedding categories, and samples of their work (stationary, cakes, dresses, etc). It was visually beautiful, and really enjoyable to read through to start comparing what each vendor offers. Thank you!”

“I attended the Spring Bridal Show just weeks after I got engaged and it was the kick off to all my planning. I admit it was a little overwhelming with all the vendors, but I got to meet a lot of great people and bring home a ton of material. The next night, my mother and I sat down with all the material and started making appointments to meet with vendors. The Wedding Planner & Guide helped with what questions to ask when meeting with vendors and inspiration. I also referred back to the website quite a bit for vendor bios and contact info. The majority of the vendors I booked are associated with wed plan. I would have been pretty lost without your assistance.”

“We have been happily advertising with The Wedding Planner & Guide for 13 years. Their shows are a great platform for getting in front of hundreds of couples who are planning their weddings. The Wedding Planner and Guide show has been very successful for our studio, we have been fortunate to get a large percentage of our yearly business from these shows. Joy Publications does a great job at putting the show on, and advertising the bridal show to get so many brides and grooms in front of their vendors. Their staff is always very helpful and have been great to work with all of these years! Thanks Wedding Planner & Guide. ”
