Why Attend a Bridal Show or Two?

What do henna, horses, and head scarves have in common? A multicultural bridal show! Attending a bridal show is fun and time-saving – there are many vendors in one location so you can look at dresses and tuxedos, taste appetizers, entrees, and wedding cake, watch wedding videos, visit wedding venues without actually going there, see a fashion show, and find a wedding officiant, all within an hour or two!


Why is this important?  It is a great way to look at trends in weddings and events, see the latest and greatest in wedding gowns and cake designs.  It is always a lot of fun.  You can also pick up valuable discounts, ideas and even win prizes.  Most bridal shows give away a honeymoon trip and other valuable things almost every couple needs to make their day special.


Although bridal shows can occur at any time of year, it is always in January when the most bridal shows happen.  This is because of engagement season. Engagement season is typically between November 24 and February 14 of each year, so bridal shows tend to be in January.


To some brides and couples, bridal shows are overwhelming; to other couples it is just what they needed to get into the wedding planning gear.  And, yes!  Guys…grooms do often attend bridal shows.


So, check out the “Events” section of your bridal vendor’s websites and see all of the shows coming up and if you happen to see us at one, stop by and say “hi!”  We’d love to talk with you!
