Research Vendors Beforehand
At a Bridal Spectacular Show, you will have the opportunity to meet with Las Vegas’ top wedding professionals. So, it’s a great idea to plan out which ones you would like to speak with first to ensure you don’t miss anyone. Also, be sure to come prepared with your questions so you can start working on wedding details directly at the show. To view the complete vendor list, please click here.
After speaking with all of the vendors and seeing which wedding themes and styles you like best, you’ll need to have a way of taking notes so you can keep in touch with your favorites afterward. You can simply bring a pen and notepad or use your iPad or smart phone to take notes. Also, many of the vendors handout glossy brochures and business cards, so we recommend bringing a Sharpie so you can easily write directly on the materials.
Soak it in & Get Inspired!
There will be seven aisles bursting with everything you could possibly need to plan your dream wedding. You will also find ideas with beautiful tabletop designs by Tiger Lilly Florist, Enchanted Florist, The Venue of Las Vegas, Flora Couture, Jovani Linens, Las Vegas Party & Tent Rentals and Event Design. Feel free to take pictures of your favorite styles to help you gather inspiration for your own wedding.
New to this show, we have also included a DIY pin board area where you can sit down and create an inspiration board so you can show it to vendors and get their help. In addition, you will also find gaming tables provided by Casino Creations and the LED Unplugged Lounge if you want to take a break and buy a refreshing drink or cocktail during the show!
Plan for the Fashion Show
On both days there will be a designer fashion show boasting the latest bridal styles. Be sure to plan accordingly to ensure you don’t miss out.
