The Premier Wedding Expo has been hosting wedding expos in the Grand Ballroom since 2012! Since then we have had nearly 1,000 vendors set up and 5,500+ couples come thru the doors! Don’t be mislead by other wedding expos…the PREMIER Expos are the area’s longest running bridal shows, dating back to early 2000’s.
The Renaissance Resort is a special place to come for a wedding expo. With it’s huge indoor space and an updated Grand Ballroom, it is a very pretty space. Since St. Augustine is known as America’s oldest city, it is also a romantic backdrop to any wedding. Many of the area’s top wedding professionals call St. Augustine home and are experts at all of the venues that reside here.
When you start your wedding planning process, we would love for you start with us! With four different Premier Wedding Expos in Northeast Florida per year, one or two shows should fit in your wedding planning window.
If you need additional information make sure you pick up the newest copy of Premier Bride Magazine of Northeast Florida or visit our website at www.PBJacksonville.com for additional information.

The Premier Wedding Expo in in Jacksonville is Northeast Florida’s largest wedding expo. This January we set a record number of vendors….155 and a record number of couples…over 800! We occupied over 70,000 square feet of space at the Prime Osborn Convention Center! Our vendors went over the top with amazing displays that showcase their talent, creative style and their vast inventory of décor pieces. There are so many amazing aspects to the show, but one of our favorites is the décor inspirations. Come and see the booth displays and get inspired for your own big day!
With over 150 unique wedding vendors….there is always something for everyone at the Premier Wedding Expos. Being diverse in the number and types of vendors is important to us. No matter what stage you are in the wedding planning process…we want attendees to find vendors that meet their needs.
Coming to a wedding expos in the early stages of wedding planning is important. Most couples don’t realize how munch work and how many different types of vendors there can be while planning a wedding.
Make sure you make a list of the types of wedding vendors you want to talk to first. It’s hard to talk to everyone during one expo, but if you stayed focused you can meet the ones that are most important to you. The Premier Expos has several expos each year, so attending 2 or even 3 if you need too!
You can always check back on our website and look up vendors by category. If you need more detailed information, visit www.PBJacksonville.com to get more information!

The first Gainesville Premier Wedding Expo was a huge success! With nearly 50 of the area’s top wedding professionals in attendance it was a great afternoon enjoyed by couples planning their wedding day! The expo was held at the Touchdown Terrace (Gate 7) at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium in Gainesville Florida. This space is a great venue in the heart of Gainesville. It also gives couples an sneak peek of some typically “off limits” space at the University of Florida.
Our next Premier Wedding Expo in Gainesville will be August 18th from 2-4 pm. We are now accepting vendor applications. Don’t wait, space is limited and we will sell out!
