August Bridal Expo A Great Success!

Brides-to-be: if you haven't attended a bridal show yet, you should definitely plan to soon! The most recent extravaganza at the state fairgrounds on August 16th, the Southern Bridal Show & Expo put together by Forever Bridal, was a rousing success. Attendance was high, participation of vendors was enthusiastic, and the excitement was contagious. The tabletop designs were unique and extremely creative, causing much ooh-ing and aah-ing!

Engaged couples and their entourages flowed from one booth to another, gathering information, talking to the wedding industry's top professionals, sampling cakes and delicious tidbits, sipping champagne, watching fashion shows,and getting dozens of new ideas for planning their own weddings. The happiness was infectious,and Southern Bride & Groom staff spoke with lots of attendees who were just beginning the planning process. We handed out magazines, candy treats, advice, and prize drawing registrations to hundreds of brides, and had lots of fun ourselves! (See entry below for Prize Winners Emily and Drew.)
