Love Is Proud | LGBTQ+ Wedding Show

We are busy preparing for the next LGBTQ+ Wedding Show!  Stay Tuned for Details, thank you to everyone for the wonderful support and success of our first Love Is Proud Show held on March 12, 2016!

Show Details

We’re bringing Ottawa’s first and Ontario’s only LGBTQ+ Wedding Show to town on Saturday, March 12, 2016! The show will run from 11:00am – 4:00pm at the Ottawa Conference and Event Centre (200 Coventry Rd, Ottawa, ON K1K 4S3)

LGBTQ+ Couples are telling us that they still need a way for businesses to express that they do support their marriage, and offer products and services to them. We have created this show as a forum for wedding professionals and couples to meet and work together in a safe, inclusive, and comfortable environment to create the day they have always dreamed of! 

Parking is free and we’re easily accessible on an OC Transpo Bus Route.

Sponsorship Information

Where:  The Ottawa Conference and Event Centre

When:  Saturday March 12, 2016 | 11:00am to 4:00pm

Why:  According to a study conducted by The Knot, 95% of same-sex couples think vendors need a way to communicate that they are LGBTQ+ friendly. This is why we are hosting an inclusive wedding show – believe it or not it is still hard for same-sex couples to make initial contact to find out if vendors are inclusive. There is no show like this in Ontario, it is important to us to reach out to and include LGBTQ+ couples and provide them with a forum to know they will be treated with respect and offered superior services on this most special day they are planning.  We anticipate great attendance from all across Ontario, and Quebec, in both attendees and participants.
