Bridal Show

1. Pick your perfect wedding theme.

A bridal show typically features multiple vendors all under one roof. This means that each vendor will have a specially designed booth, with a unique wedding theme. With so many wedding theme ideas out there, you’re bound to find something you love… hopefully the perfect wedding theme for your big day!

2. Get inspired with all the details.

Many bridal shows will inspire you with bridal gowns, hair and makeup trends, bridesmaid dresses, and groomsmen attire with a fashion show. You’ll also see wedding cakes, find wedding favors, taste food for your reception menu, see table designs, centerpieces, and more.

3. Meet vendors in your area.

Attend a bridal show in your area (or the location of your wedding) to meet real wedding vendors for your big day. Meeting a vendor in person is a great way to get acquainted and ask questions before the wedding. Plus, you can find out availability and book your vendor on the spot. This saves you time (and some vendors offer discounts for booking same-day!)


When you attend a bridal show, you’ll be able to discern between styles you love (and those you don’t). It’s a great way to start the wedding planning process right after getting engaged. Bring your spouse-to-be and enjoy the afternoon as you envision your perfect day, all in one place.

    So true. It can really help you to narrow things down. We have a HUGE bridal show here and most brides just find it super overwhelming, but if you go in organized it can be super helpful.
