Research Vendors Ahead of Time

At a Bridal Spectacular Show, you will have the opportunity to meet with the top wedding professionals throughout Las Vegas. It is recommended that you do some research beforehand and determine which companies 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 a complete list of wedding exhibitors, please click here: 2016 Winter Show Vendors.

Take Notes

After speaking with all of the vendors and seeing which wedding themes and styles you like best, you will want 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. Many of the vendors will handout glossy brochures and business cards, so we also recommend bringing a Sharpie so you can easily write directly on the materials.

Get Wedding Ideas from Inspiration Avenue

Our Inspiration Avenue will help you find ideas for every wedding theme possible, including all of the latest décor and colors trends. In addition, our event designers and florists will be creating tablescape designs for you to vote on your favorite. To cast your vote, just post photos of your favorite designs on Instagram using the hashtags: #BridalSpectacular #yourfavoritetable.

And, if you need to take a little break after seeing so many great wedding ideas, the LED Unplugged Lounge is located in Inspiration Avenue where you can buy a refreshing drink or cocktail during the show!

Plan for a Cause with Susan G. Komen

This year, Bridal Spectacular is teaming up with Susan G. Komen to raise money and build awareness for Breast Cancer. During the show, brides can sign up to run or “sleep in” for the cause. If you sign up on our team, Spectacular Brides and Spectacular Survivors can join us to run for the cure on May 7, 2016. And, participants could win great wedding-related prizes just for signing up. We hope to unite the wedding community to help fight against this terrible disease that affects women everywhere!
