European Bridal Week

Being the true hub of bridal with Messe Essen hosting the longest running bridal fashion event in Germany, retailers from all over the world join European Bridal Week for exciting three days of insight, inspiration and innovation.

For years already, European Bridal Week has been known as the premium destination in bridal.

In 2023, European Bridal Week will give retailers the opportunity to get the first look at the upmost seasons' collections from over 500 labels from all over the world. As an annual international bridal event, this B2B show includes many of the finest names in bridal and evening manufacturing, as well as cutting- edge designers who innovate and set the trends in the entire bridal industry.


Throughout European Bridal Week there are more entertainment sections, including our “Fashion Aisle”, and relaxation areas so that visitors can take time out to review what they have seen and make their purchasing decisions.

Take a break, meet and mingle with your colleagues at our exclusive “Champagne Bar”, which will be the core heart of the show. We invite our visitors to relax here with a glass of champagne and delicious appetizers or to network with colleagues.

The “Instagram Candy Bar” will be brand new for 2023. This will not only be the sweetest place in the industry, but visitors can also treat themselves to a little time-out and as well as feed their own social media channels with fresh fashion flair.

We are also planning interesting “Meet & Greet” Sessions for this area, during which visitors have the opportunity to exchange ideas with social media specialists from the bridal fashion sector.
