Coming to Cashman Convention Center on January 20-21, 2012, the Bridal Spectacular bridal show will deliver everything you need to plan a memorable wedding that reflects your love story.

Wait a minute…. What does Bridal Spectacular have to do with Christmas? Valid question, brides.

Today let’s take a sneak peek at some similarities shared between Christmas and wedding planning seasons for a fun, informative way to know what you can expect from Bridal Spectacular’s upcoming experience.

#1.  One-Stop Shopping! Who doesn’t love one-stop shopping during a busy season of life? With Bridal Spectacular, you no longer need to spend time, effort, and energy driving across town to find the perfect fit. Instead see all your options in one location, and select Las Vegas wedding vendors that best suit you.

#2. Cake! What’s a festive celebration without gathering to eat? At Bridal Spectacular, you can sample various cake flavors from multiple bakeries. Whether it’s luscious lemon, mouthwatering marble, or classic chocolate, satisfy your sweet tooth. Then make your way to the caterers, popcorn tastings, candy stations, and more.

#3.  Costumes! Well, you won’t find Santa Claus at the bridal show, but you will find a whole host of well-designed options for your wedding day attire. Watch professional models and dancers perform in our heart-pumping fashion shows, and discover which outfits most speak to your sense of style.

#4. Festive Florals! Nothing says Christmas like the evergreen tree. Likewise, a bride isn’t complete with her characteristic bouquet. Find dozens of florists and view our award-winning decor to spark your imagination and inspire your ideas, from our creative Inspiration Avenue reception displays to vendors’ exhibits of ceremony arches, boutonnieres, bouquets, and more.

#5. Photographs! Forget forced poses for portraits in favor of fun photo booths, captivating photojournalism, and professional photography. At the bridal show, you’ll receive the opportunity to speak face-to-face with vendors in every category, including the photo sphere. Take time to peer at pictures or portfolios to learn each photographer’s style, and find the one who best fits you. Then document the bridal show day when you step into a photo booth and snap a series of silly pics to share with friends!

#6. Fun, Family, and Free Gifts! Christmas is all about giving and receiving, enjoying each moment, and treasuring time with friends and family. At Bridal Spectacular’s bridal show, bring your groom, your Maid of Honor, even your Mom! Spend the day surrounded by people you care about as you plan your upcoming wedding in a dazzling experience. You’ll even receive a few gifts, including a free subscription to BRIDES magazine, high-quality prizes, vendor discounts, and a wealth of helpful wedding planning information.

#7. Reason for the Season! While families gather to celebrate togetherness and the birth of Christ at Christmas, families also choose to gather for a special reason for weddings. That shared reason is love. Love has inspired you and your groom to take this next step into marriage. We want to help you celebrate, brides. That’s why we’re here. At Bridal Spectacular, we want to share in your love story and help you discover how you can best express your personal reasons for marriage through your wedding day celebrations.

While we can’t wait to see you all in January, we also want to take time to wish you the best this holiday season. May your time with friends, family, and your groom be blessed! Merry Christmas, brides!
