Expect the Unexpected
Tailored to the modern couple, With Love, LUIS is a bridal event like no other, welcoming change and challenging the norm.
Rather than having all aspects of the show under one roof, this ultimate wedding planning weekend is sprawled across two days and multiple locations.
In the spirit of creating a completely different experience, With Love, LUIS focuses on the journey from engaged to newlywed and all of the celebrations throughout that journey vs just the wedding day itself like a typical bridal show; think The Big Day PLUS bachelor/ette, rehearsal dinner, welcome party, farewell brunch, engagement party, bridal shower, mini-moon, and everything in between!
This allows top Exhibitors from the wedding industry to join forces with Exhibitors outside of the bridal world to collectively showcase their best work, products and services, in hopes to inspire couples just like you. Newlyweds-to-be, you get to meet the best of the best that can help bring your vision to life for all the moments from "they said yes!" to "I Do!", all in one fun weekend. This is basically a recruitment fair for your celebration-planning dream team and beyond! At the same time, you'll get to explore and learn about the host city for consideration as a location for your nuptials to take place.
During your ultimate wedding planning weekend, preview over 60,000 square feet of multiple event spaces and get inspired by Exhibitor collaborations and curated, immersive experiences at the most sought after venues in St. Louis and the Official Venues of With Love, LUIS - STL:
Let The Good Times Roll
Every attendee of With Love, LUIS is a VIP, with equal access to special perks, branded pop-ups, Instagrammable vendor collaborations, Curated Property Tours and SO. MUCH. MORE. If you're looking to get inspired, look no further. LUIS has thought of EV-ER-Y-THING and has something in store at every turn during this ultimate wedding planning weekend.
Each venue will have Immersive Guest Experiences to entice your visits, enhance the opportunity to meet incredible Exhibitors, and learn along the way.
Gone are the days of confusing ticket types, multiple lines at check-in, racing through a ballroom without ample time to interact with Exhibitors, and restricted or early access to the show. With Love, LUIS runs from morning to afternoon, keeping you engaged with plenty to do and a TON of LUIS' friends to meet.
You can also take this opportunity to meet other couples going through the same newlywed-to-be journey! With Love, LUIS is a discrimination free zone. LUIS welcomes every kind of couple from every background, and will make sure there is a balanced mix of Exhibitors for all needs that reflect the same spirited philosophy. Grab coffee, share ideas, follow each other on social, and take numbers! We are all in this together.
2 Days, 1 Ticket
You read that right - one admission covers the ultimate wedding planning weekend in its entirety! As mentioned, there is only one ticket type, so every guest is treated as a VIP and receives an "All Access Pass" for entry to each activity.
As an added surprise, guests will also receive access to LUIS' Premium Perks, a curated guide to STL LUIS' way, with special gifts and exclusive offers.
Who wants to carry around a printed program (final destination: nearest trash can!) or download a limited-usage/one-day mobile app? Ew.
With Love, LUIS is a fully digital experience: strategic email campaigns and digitally accessible programming + official itineraries keep guests informed of all moving parts during their ultimate wedding planning weekend.
Bonus: Kudos -You'll be a part of helping reduce LUIS' carbon footprint!
