The Shows

We are excited to continue the Tacoma Wedding Show, presented by South Sound Wedding & Event/ Bird + Duck Media! 

For almost two decades, South Sound Wedding & Event produced the region's best bridal shows, formerly known as the South Sound Wedding Shows. These localized boutique-style shows were a smashing hit prior to the pandemic. In Jan. 2024, the show returned rebranded as the Tacoma Wedding Show - a South Sound Regional Event and was a HUGE success!

Find all of the resources that you need to plan your wedding from flowers and party décor rentals to venues and photographers, all located in and/or servicing the South Sound region including South King, Pierce, Thurston, Kitsap, and beyond!

Land Statement

Our team at the the Tacoma Wedding Show acknowledges that we operate on the traditional homelands of the Puyallup and Nisqually Tribes, as well as on lands with significance to other Coast Salish tribes. These tribes and people have lived on and stewarded these lands since time immemorial and continue to do so today. We recognize that this land acknowledgement is one small step toward true allyship and honor their voices and the histories of the Indigenous people of the South Sound region.
