Why The Bridal Show Works

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette  Fall Bridal Show allows vendors to showcase products and services and talk directly with engaged couples and their families. Vendors can book appointments and establish contacts, while brides can plan their entire weddings in one afternoon.

The show typically sees approximately 1,500 attendees and continues to grow each year in part because it has the marketing power of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette print and online products.

We invite you and your business to participate in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Bridal Show from 12:30-5 p.m. Sunday, August 14, 2016.
