READ WHAT BRIDES ARE SAYING

“My fiance and I just got engaged 3 weeks ago, and even though we’re in the very beginning stages of planning everyone was so warm and welcoming! We didn’t feel overwhelmed as there was a lot going on, or pushed into anything- but we were able to check out different booths and get ideas for our wedding day, from photographers, food, and honeymoon!”
-Carrie

“This was soooo helpful for me planning my big day. My maid of honor went with me and we had so much fun. I had no idea where to start my planning so I was really looking for venues and photographers. There were so many options. I am having a smaller wedding (75 maybe) so I was not looking for a huge space. Glad I found a couple of options. Plus it was a blast to see the fashion show for clothing ideas for my party and myself. Best part was that my bestie was there to help me!”
-Tiffany

“This fair BY FAR was the best show i have been to. Every single vendor was super helpful. Not one of them pushed themselves on me or my girls. We knew what we went there for and we were able to accomplish it.”
-Sharanda

“We had a ton of fun. Loved the fashion show. There were a lot of vendors there to talk to and make appointments on the spot. I was able to get the information needed to continue with planning. This was a one stop shop fair. Great job coordinating the fair.”
-Tara

“The wedding fair had a great variety of vendors and services to learn more about! You were provided a fun booklet of information to follow along and a bag to carry all your free samples and information in! Thank you for a fun experience!”
-Melissa

“We had a great time! There was an unbelievable number of vendors there, the fashion show was great-we got to see many beautiful dresses and ideas for men’s suits, and the free food samples were amazing!!! Highly recommend it for future brides!!!”
