Las Vegas brides, the Bridal Spectacular bridal show is the best place for wedding planning, vendor shopping, and design inspiration! But that’s not all you can find at Bridal Spectacular’s upcoming show at Cashman Center on August 17-18, 2012. This season, we’re introducing a few new twists alongside brides’ favorite elements for an unforgettable, two-day, wedding planning experience!

Bridal Spectacular bridal show lets you meet vendors and plan your wedding. But that’s not all we offer!

INCREDIBLE CUPCAKE ART: Brides, bring your cameras because this is a sight you won’t want to forget! As a brand-new addition to our show, we’re featuring IncrEDIBLE Cupcake Art from the talented culinary artists at Freed’s Bakery. Near the fashion show stage, this will be a complete, colorful mosaic made of 3,000 cupcakes! Be sure to stop by, and see if you can guess which famous artwork is replicated through this innovative cupcake design.

CUPCAKE MANIA: While IncrEDIBLE Cupcake Art provides a beautiful testament to modern culinary art, we also know it’s going to be tough not to want to eat those tasty desserts. That’s why we’re introducing an all-new game! It’s Cupcake Mania, and you’re going to have to see it to believe it.

For your chance to compete, register online for the bridal show and you’ll be entered in a drawing to participate. Oh, you’ll want to participate! Our games give you chances to win these grand prizes: Wedding Cake from Freed’s Bakery, Day-of Wedding Coordination from Opulent Events, and two $500 Shopping Spree gift certificates to be spent at Bridal Spectacular!

Compete in crazy contests to win amazing prizes!

“BUILD YOUR LOVE NEST” CONTEST: In addition to the new Cupcake Mania, we’re hosting our “Build Your Love Nest” Contest once again! With giant boxes we’ve painted to look like building materials (bricks, windows, roofs), you and your groom will have the chance to build a “house” to win!

What will you win? To the first groom who carries his bride through the threshold of their new “house,” we’re giving the perfect gift for a first home together: a complete set of RC Willey living room furniture!

INSPIRATION AVENUE: We’re bringing you the best designs from the most creative minds in Las Vegas wedding floral and event design! You’ll see reception tables decorated in detail, ceremony areas complete with arches and aisles, and a wide variety of décor themes. It’s the perfect place to take photos and gather inspiration!

This season, we’ve invited the talented teams from Naakiti Floral Design, Scheme Events, Jovani Linens and Floral Design, Opulent Events, and Flora Couture by Floral 2000. To best showcase their work and deliver the ultimate experience, we’ve even expanded Inspiration Avenue to 150 feet!

LED Unplugged created this look for their bridal show booth. Imagine what they’ll do at Unplugged Lounge!

UNPLUGGED LOUNGE: Inspired by our boutique bridal show Veils, Tails, and Cocktails earlier this year, this August bridal show will feature an area to purchase cocktails and relax between shopping. We’re calling this area the “Unplugged Lounge,” and that’s exactly what it is!

At any time during the bridal show, you can retreat to this area, unplug from vendor shopping, and simply spend time with your groom. With innovative lighting, comfortable furniture, and a fully stocked cash bar, this characteristic Unplugged Lounge is brought to you by our friends at LED Unplugged Lighting and Event Rentals.
