The Wedding Party Wedding expos are a dime a dozen, but if you decide to attend only one during your engagement, make it this high-end bridal show, organized by the Wedding Library’s Claudia Hanlin and Jennifer Zabinski. The duo has brought together more than 100 top-notch vendors, making it easy for you to scout florists, photographers, bands and stationers (including TONY favorite Mr. Boddington’s Studio). Peruse actually-cute bridesmaids dresses from Cynthia Rowley, Amsale, Badgley Mischka and Thread, then look for your own attire during a Kleinfeld’s bridal fashion show. Martha Stewart Weddings editorial director Darcy Miller will be on hand to dole out tips and inspiration, and you’ll have the chance to hobnob with celebrity wedding-cake baker Sylvia Weinstock, designer Lela Rose and Dylan’s Candy Bar founder (and bride-to-be!) Dylan Lauren, who will be signing copies of her book Dylan’s Candy Bar: Unwrap Your Sweet Life (1–2pm). And have we mentioned all the freebies? Nibble sweets from One Girl Cookies and Popbar, get a manicure from cult polish brand Essie, sip wine from Long Island’s Bedell Winery, nosh on tacos from food truck Mexicue (parked in the New York Palace’s courtyard), and enter to win a honeymoon to luxe resorts like La Samanna in St. Martin and the One & Only Ocean Club in the Bahamas. New York Palace Hotel, 455 Madison Ave between 50th and 51st Sts (212-327-0100, theweddinglibrary.com/weddingparty). Sat 22 10am–4pm; $75.
