One of our favorite wedding shows in Milwaukee is back for their winter installment!! Taking place two times each year, the December WEDMKE wedding show will take place at Turner Hall Ballroom on Wednesday December 6th, 2023 from 4 – 8pm and you can purchase tickets here.
We are so excited about this show because we love the show’s organizers, the amazing and unique vendors and the spectacular location at Turner Hall Ballroom. Trust us, you don’t want to miss it! Read on to learn why we think every engaged Milwaukee couple will love this show.
1. So Many Amazing Vendors
WEDMKE will have 50+ of Milwaukee’s most-unique wedding vendors set up throughout Turner Hall. We are stoked there are several Married In Milwaukee Family Members in the vendor lineup!!
All the vendors at WEDMKE are from the local area and many will even have the owner of the business on hand to chat with. They take weddings seriously and work hard to help you execute your Milwaukee wedding the way you want.
2. WEDMKE x 2
WEDMKE has now expanded to happen TWO times in 2023! The winter WEDMKE will happen on Wednesday December 6th, 2023 and is perfect for recently engaged couples looking into 2024 & 2025 weddings and beyond. Not quite engaged, but looking to plan ahead? Definitely stop in and get to know some great local wedding businesses and gather inspiration from their creative vendor setups.
Many wedding vendors are already booking into 2024 & even 2025, so catching them in person at WEDMKE is a great time to lock them down and get all your questions answered.
3. It’s Held at one of Our Favorite Venues
One of the reasons we are excited about the show is that it’s at Turner Hall Ballroom, one of our favorite venues in Milwaukee. We’ve said it many times, if we were doing our wedding over, Turner Hall would definitely be on our short list.
But a building alone doesn’t make it cool – it’s the people behind it. WEDMKE is organized by two of our favorite vendors – Ann from Turner Hall Ballroom Weddings and Ramsey from Two Birds Event Group.
Seriously, we know these folks very well and not only are they great people, but they are wedding industry experts and have selected a great vendor line up for you.
4. You Can Win a Honeymoon!!
WEDMKE is partnering with LovinAway to offer a honeymoon giveaway. The giveaway is a four night stay at UNICO 20°87° in Riviera Maya (see website for details). All engaged couple ticket holders are eligible to enter to win, and you’ll have to attend WEDMKE for details and to enter.
5. Enjoy Live Music, Drinks and Food
A very unique part of attending WEDMKE is the live music. We love when couples incorporate live music into their wedding, and WEDMKE is a perfect time to experience that.
The lineup for the December 2023 WEDMKE is still being developed, but there will be three sets of music as provided by the fine folks of ACA Entertainment:
- 4:45-5:15 pm – TBA
- 5:45-6:15 pm – TBA
- 6:45 pm – 7:15 pm – TBA
While at WEDMKE, Turner Hall will have a great selection of drinks for purchase. There will be plenty of food and dessert samples too so check out the list of caterers and desserts and the rest of the vendor lineup here.
6. The First 100 Get a Tote Bag
Be one of the first 100 people through the door and you’ll get a limited edition tote bag. Use that bag when visiting vendor booths and collecting swag and contact info – trust us, you’ll have a lot to carry!
7. Creative Vendor Displays
Now in its 8th year, we are excited to see some amazing vendor displays at WEDMKE and how they inspire #MKECouples to think outside the box with their wedding!
Back for December 2023 WEDMKE is the Over The Moon Cocktail Lounge sponsored by Ray’s Wine & Spirits. Head to the upstairs bar of Turner Hall to relax and enjoy craft cocktail samples from Over The Moon Bartending. Chat with the team at OTM & Ray’s Wine & Spirits about beverage ideas for your wedding & hear about Ray’s new event space.
Here’s a few more photos of the awesome vendor displays from past WEDMKE shows – and the cool thing is, they look even better in person! So get your WEDMKE tickets and prepare for a great time..
We are so looking forward to WEDMKE and seeing tons of our #MKECouples at the show. We’ll be doing some fun Instagram stories live from the show so be sure to follow along! Visit the WEDMKE website to learn more and purchase tickets and we’ll see you on Wednesday December 6th, 2023!
