Sloan Convention Center
Tammy Duke Feltz Event Planning and Design will be hosting Bridal Fest Wedding Expo. We offer the bride and groom to be the opportunity to meet with everyone they will need “all under one roof!” Brides have been attending our shows since 2009, and we are the longest running bridal show in the area. We don’t have to say we are the largest or the best because our reputation stands on its own. We are also unique; unlike most local bridal shows, we are in the business of giving back. For each show, we carefully select an organization to raise awareness and money for.
Our fabulous Summer Bridal Show will be just what you need to start or finish planning your wedding. Brides will find over 50 of the area’s top wedding professionals lined up to share with you what they can do for you on your wedding day. Shop, compare and get insights and advice from the leading wedding experts. Enjoy food samples, music and entertainment, discounts, over $20,000 in door prizes and grand prizes, and enter for a chance to win a wedding package giveaway valued over $10,000 that includes a photographer, wedding planner, custom candy buffet for reception, bachelorette party, wedding cake and much more. Why drive all over town making appointments when the largest group of wedding professionals will be waiting to meet you at Bridal Fest!

Tips for Brides Attending
Bridal shows can be a great way to learn about many categories of wedding services at once, talk to vendors in person, get ideas, and even book services efficiently. Plus, you can gain discounts from wedding vendors for booking at the show.
Here are our tips for busy brides who want to enjoy and make the most of their wedding show experience.
• Be prepared to set appointments. Bring your calendar/planner or Smartphone with you.
• Pre-printed labels or a stamp with your name, address, wedding date or planned date (important!), phone and email will save time filling out forms and help you avoid writer’s cramp.
• Check the exhibitor list (from the web site or call the show) and make a point of visiting any vendors you’re already considering. A show can be a great environment for comparing vendors.
• Bring reinforcements. Your fiancé, your mom and/or your bridesmaids can all be helpful to your bridal show shopping. (And having decision makers with you helps, in case you want to book a vendor right at the show.)
• Wear comfortable shoes!
PARKING: At the Sloan Convention Center parking is complimentary.
CHILDREN: Children 12 & under get in FREE.
