The Summer 2016 Chattanooga Pink Bridal Show® was one of The Pink Bride’s best wedding shows yet!
The Pink Bride® painted the town pink on July 17th this season. The Summer 2016 show crowds didn’t disappoint, as hundreds of brides and their guests flocked to the Chattanooga Convention Center for the area’s hottest wedding-planning event! Attendees came from miles around to plan their dream wedding in one day. The Pink Bridal Show kept brides, grooms, and guests busy from 11am to 4pm with incredible inspirational displays, giveaways, swag, yummy food and drink, and the area’s most-requested wedding pros, all in one place. See a few of my favorite highlights below!

Right after the second fashion show, Fred and Allison introduced The Pink Bride’s new giveaway: Cash for Contracts.
To help brides with their wedding-planning budgets, they drew 11 names from a random pool of attendees. The amount of the contract the bride or groom booked during the show determined the amount that The Pink Bride would give if Fred and Allison drew their number! If the contract was worth $150-$498, the attendee received $50 from The Pink Bride. If the contract was worth $499-$998, the attendee received $100. If the contract was worth $999 or more, the attendee received $220!
Fred actually told two brides whose contracts were over $5,000 that he would put $500 towards to the contract listed.
Congrats to all who won!
