Bridal Show in detail
The show’s 120+ vendor booths help brides-to-be and their fiances plan their weddings from start to finish, but the Bridal Show is not your typical trade show.
“The show has evolved over the years to be more of an idea showcase as many of the vendors including florists, entertainment companies, caterers and rental companies all want to display what they could do. And since they only have one chance to make a good impression – they go big! They spend months developing their space and days constructing their designs. It is worth the price of admission just to see some of the latest trends, designs and wedding ideas from the vendors.” – Tabitha Cunningham, events director of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
The bridal show is a mixture of businesses from across the state and beyond that include photographers, DJs, caterers, travel agents and reception sites, among other vendors. A runway fashion show featuring the latest in wedding trends, fun contests, DIY workshops, a musical showcase of local acts and a $3,500 Ultimate Wedding Package Giveaway, along with some of the best names in the bridal industry, are just a few reasons brides depend on the bridal show to plan their weddings.
The show continues to have contests and prizes to attract brides. A newspaper wedding gown design challenge, best ‘dressed’ groom competition and many other contests will take place during the event.
The Runway Fashion Show will feature more than 50 outfits for the entire wedding party divided into either classic or modern, making it easier for brides to choose the perfect look. The show will begin at 4:30 p.m. on the same stage.
One lucky couple will win the Ultimate Wedding Package, valued at more than $3,500. The giveaway, which will be given out randomly at 5 p.m., features such prizes as photography, a DJ for the reception, rentals for the wedding, flowers, wedding cake and more. Other prizes will be given out throughout the show.
Brides-to-be will receive a free Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Bridal Planner and the newly published Real Weddings in Arkansas magazine. This is a complete guide to planning a wedding, including worksheets to help brides keep organized. The Bridal Planner includes beautiful photography, helpful editorials, checklists for brides and a listing of local businesses.
