Hundreds of couples joined us at the 2020 Bridal Spectacular Show on January 4 & 5.

Happy New Year everyone! We at Bridal Spectacular kicked-off the first week of the new decade with a bang during our 2020 Bridal Spectacular Show at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino last weekend.

And, we weren’t alone! Hundreds of excitied brides and grooms along with their family and friends joined us to help plan their dream weddings! See below to check out what a few of the happy brides had to say about the show and planning their special day.

Bridal Spectacular chatted with brides about planning their dream weddings


To begin, we chatted with Alyssa who came to the show with her Mom, sister and nieces. This beautiful bride-to-be is getting married in October 2020 at The Grove. She came to the show to get ideas for her wedding theme as well as to find vendors. She shared that her favorite part of wedding planning so far is looking at all of the different ideas, having fun, and all of the great memories she’s making. Congrats on your special day, Alyssa!


Next, we spoke with Cynthia who just got engaged on January 1. She came to the show with her fantastic friend (and likely future bridesmaid) who said Cynthia had to attend the Bridal Spectacular to get ideas to help plan her big day. Awe, what a great friend! Cynthia shared that she has no idea where to begin planning so she joined us to get ideas, find vendors, and have a good time. Congratulations Cynthia and good luck planning your April 2020 wedding!


As we strolled down the aisle, we caught up with bride-to-be, Darneisha who came to the show with her future mother-in-law, future sister-in-law, and a good friend. Darneisha is getting married at Lakeside Weddings and Events on September 25 of this year. She came to the show to find a photo booth company — and loved trying out all of the different options at the show! She also shared that her favorite part of planning so far is looking at the different wedding décor and styles and all of the love she’s been getting from family and friends. And, there’s plenty more of that to come on your big day!


Later, we talked with Sandy who came to the show with her bridesmaid and friend. This bride-to-be is planning a beautiful church wedding in December 2020 and came to the show to get ideas. She added that her favorite parts of the show were the photo booths and looking at invitations. Congratulations on your wedding, Sandy!

Tricia and Randall

Last, but certainly not least, we chatted with the cutest couple, Tricia and Randall. This bride and groom are getting married in September 2020 at The Doyle. They came to the show to find a rental company, photographer and florist. They shared that their favorite part of planning so far is making their wedding style their own. Tricia also said that she thought she knew exactly what wedding theme she wanted, but changed her mind after seeing all of the different trends out there. We’re sure whatever wedding theme you ultimately choose will be beautiful. Congrats to you both!
