Winter wedding expos are in full swing on Long Island, and if you are the one of many who got engaged on Christmas or you are just in the process of working out the details for your big day, there is an event with people who are looking to help and offer their services.  This month, you’ll be able to check out an array of venues and their preferred vendors, with many offering complete one-stop shopping for everything you need for your wedding day.  East Wind is offering it's special bridal showcase this month with cuisine options, onsite wedding ceremonies, and plenty of event professionals who can answer all of your queries. Wind Watch Golf and Country Club will also be hosting a one-stop shopping bridal showcase complete with photographers, videographers, florists, DJs, favors, bakers, make-up artists, limos, invitation designers, and so much more.

On the day of the bridal expo or showcase, keep the number of people in your group small.  These events bring together hundreds of vendors, which can be overwhelming, but what may be more overwhelming is hearing numerous opinions on a photographer or DJ.  Bring those who are close to you and whose opinions you value to make for a worthwhile trip.

To also get the most out of your bridal showcase or expo, scope out the vendors ahead of time by looking at the location’s website.  All good vendors have a website or Facebook page, so check them out ahead of time and then make a list of which ones you would like to pursue further. For all of your other wedding needs, check out's Wedding Guide for the top local vendors and venues for your special day.

Now that you are prepared, bundle up and head to these fabulous winter wedding expos and bridal showcases:
