Become a Vendor - Ocala Florida

  • Providing Bride & Grooms with Exclusive Industry Professionals to create the Best Wedding Day Experience

    Participation in the Wedding Mafia’s 1st Annual Bridal Show on August 2, 2015 from 1-4pm at Jumbolair can increase your exposure and help your company generate additional business. This show will allow you the chance to have face to face interaction with with Brides and/or Grooms.  Every vendor will also have website and social media exposure.  Our talented web design team will strategically place our vendors and the event on the web to gain additional exposure.  We are limiting the number of vendors and are being very selective on the industry professionals that we will participate, therefore we can guarantee the event to provide our potential clients with the best in the industry.  Since we recognize that planning a Wedding can be stressful we want to make this day about creating an atmosphere that will make it easy for potential clients to make decisions on the vendors they choose to work with for their event.  This exclusive Bridal Show gives a Bride & Groom the opportunity to plan their entire wedding on this one day.  

    We encourage all of the vendors participating to have plenty of employees representing their services so they will have the ability to provide one on one time with all that are interested.  We also recommend vendors to have incentives, drawings, or giveaways and to be creative with their booth.  There will be a contest for the most creative booth..  If you need assistance in making the most of this day we will be glad to have a designated specialist work with you once you have reserved your valuable spot.

    Vendors: You do not want to wait, reserve your booth today!  The spaces available are limited by each trade so do not let your competition take your spot.

    The best part of the show is that YOU will be a part of giving back to a great cause!  The Wedding Mafia is going to give 10% of any profits to fighting Breast Cancer.

    We hope to see you at this years show and to have you a part of future events hosted by the Wedding Mafia!
