Upcoming NC Wedding Shows — Forever Bridal Southern Bridal Show & Expo

The Forever Bridal Southern Bridal Show & Expo is this weekend at the NC State Fairgrounds! The Southern Bridal Show & Expo is one of the Triangle’s most popular bridal shows, and last year, it expanded to a two-day, weekend-long event.

The show features over 150 Triangle-area wedding professionals to inspire and inform brides and grooms-to-be. Make a day of it and enjoy fashion previews debuting the season’s latest trends in wedding apparel, meet with the most talented vendors in the Triangle — from caterers and florists to wedding planners and photographers — and get ideas for your big day! Forever Bridal has hosted some of the most anticipated bridal shows in the area for over 10 years, and this show the perfect way to get a jumpstart on your wedding planning.

Be sure to stop by the Southern Bride & Groom booth and get your free copy of SB&G 2013!
