The WedLuxe Wedding Show (happening in Toronto, Canada on Jan 10 and 11, 2015) is now just over a week away!!! Here at the WedLuxe office, we are ASTRONOMICALLY EXCITED! In fact, you could say we are OVER THE MOON! ;)
As we enter our fourth year of producing the show, the word is officially out – this is NOT your typical wedding show! Our guests are immersed in an unparalleled world of luxury throughout the entire event––each attendee will experience delicious and delightfully wonderful takeaways at all touch points. The show has received critical acclaim from members of the luxury wedding industry across North America and been hailed as one of the best wedding shows in the world.
For the first time ever, the show will be hosted at ARCADIAN (Arcadian Loft, Arcadian Court, Arcadian Studio and the Mezzanine) in addition to the connecting 7th floor of Hudson’s Bay which includes Kleinfeld Hudson’s Bay and Hudson’s Bay Gift Registry.
Our host venue Arcadian first opened in 1929 at the height of the Art Deco movement. Geometric star-like shapes commonly found in deco design led us to be inspired by the sky and all things celestial for the 2015 WedLuxe Wedding Show Experiential Areas.
With over 120 exhibits from Canada’s most elite wedding professionals and several experiential areas based on the theme, “It’s Written in the Stars,” the highly anticipated 2015 show will immerse you in an unparalleled world of luxury, fantasy and illumination.
Without further ado, here’s what admission ($75pp) includes:
The Pearl Moon Lounge will be located on the mezzanine level of Arcadian Court. In this dazzling lounge inspired by the illustrious art deco history of our host venue our guests can unwind and indulge! Sultry live performances by singers from St. Royals wearing gowns from Kleinfeld Hudson’s Bay with makeup and hair by Fancy Face Inc will entertain while our host sponsor Oliver & Bonacini serves oysters paired with a mini cocktail featuring Walter––Canada’s first all-natural craft Caesar mix. Guests can also sample wine from Chateau St. Jean Sonoma. Sweet fans can rejoice, we’ll also have confetti truffles for everyone, courtesy of Momofuku Toronto!

The Botanique Creperie & Tea Tasting Bar will be located within Arcadian Studio.

The Belle-Gem Waffle Bar presented by Oliver & Bonacini Events and Catering will treat guests to delicious sweet or savoury waffles handcrafted live on-site using waffle irons from Breville at the 7th floor demonstration kitchen within Hudson’s Bay.
The Celestine Flower Market is also located on the 7th floor of Hudson’s Bay in Gift Registry. This interactive, beautiful floral market will showcase thousands of fragrant roses (upon roses)! Each and every one of our guests will receive a beautifully hand-tied takeaway bouquet. They can also strike a pose at the Celestine Market Selfie Station––a flower wall designed for a perfect souvenir snap!
