Apply to be a Vendor

Get in on this


We would like to invite you to apply to be an exhibitor at the Best Day Ever Wedding Show coming up this winter!

The Best Day Ever Wedding Show (formerly Love, Handmade.) has been Ottawa's handmade, local and independent wedding show since 2014. The show is geared towards creative, independent couples looking to customize their wedding through unique and personal details. The show is hosted by Norde Bridal and just like the shop, the show will be a curated collection of independent designers and artisans with a focus on handmade, local, and sustainable goods.


While the show will attract couples that are holding truly non-traditional weddings, it also draw attention from couples who are planning a more traditional wedding who want to incorporate unique, personal touches and are looking for fun and creative alternatives.

About the Show

The Show will take place on Saturday, January 13th from 3 pm to 7 pm at Saint Brigid's Centre for the Arts in Ottawa's ByWard Market. The show will be an EVENING cocktail style event (that's right, its a fully licensed old church!). Located in the stunning former Parish built in 1889, with immense vaulted ceilings and all the original architecture and character. Complete with wooden pews and ornate alter, this will be our most unusual venue yet!


 Interested in Joining?

Vendors will be accepted based on fit for the show.

We are looking for vendors who pride themselves in their unique approach to weddings. Best Day Ever showcases photographers, caterers, planners, bakers, stationers, jewelers, and more. We love out-of-the-box vendors who some might not traditionally think of for a wedding; do you create custom calligraphy stationery, bake vegan wedding cakes, or create beautiful faux-floral arrangements? Then this is the show for you!

Love, Handmade is a unique wedding show and market, we present alternatives to the typical wedding show, focusing on wedding pros with a twist. Appealing to those who want a truly non-traditional wedding, as well as the more traditional couple who just want to let their personality shine through!

Vendors must be established businesses that are independently owned and operated.
