The Winter 2016 Chattanooga Pink Bridal Show® broke records from the very beginning!
The Pink Bride® once again hosted the much-anticipated bridal show on January 24th, following a week of rough winter weather here in Tennessee. However, neither the cold nor the snow could keep the masses from flocking to the Winter 2016 show for the year’s hottest wedding-planning event in the area! Attendees joined The Pink Bride from miles around to partake in the festivities. The Pink Bridal Show thrilled guests from 11am to 4pm at the Chattanooga Convention Center, and I got to be there with my trusty camera yet again to capture the event in style! See a few of my favorite highlights below.
This season once again honored Very Important Brides and Guests throughout the show.
Very Important Brides get special treatment from The Pink Bride as the company’s preferred guests. Among the perks of being a VIB include receiving over $850 worth of merchandise and early walk through of the show 30 minutes prior to start time. The Pink Bride’s CEO Fred Jacob met the VIBs and VIGs at the fashion show stage, where he did a special introduction about all the perks they could expect throughout the Pink Bridal Show.
The newest addition to this season’s show included the introduction of The Pink Bride’s new bridal show app – BrideScan.
BrideScan makes your wedding-planning experience easy and stress-free during a Pink Bridal Show by allowing you to connect only with the wedding pros you’re interested in during the show. Learn more perks over on the official BrideScan page!
Chattanooga Pink Bridal Shows don’t just happen…they require tons of prep-work ahead of time.
As the area’s largest, most-requested bridal show, the Pink Bridal Show takes months of preparation long before the big day arrives! This dedication to perfection is one of the many aspects that sets a Pink Bridal Show apart from the rest. Once all the hard work is put in, the end result is more than worth it! Brides and attendees get to enjoy the opportunity to find the very best wedding professionals, advice, and inspiration all at amazing prices and value throughout the event. The prep-work on each wedding vendor’s display area begins months before the big day, with set up happening the day before the show in preparation for the hundreds of brides sure to attend!
This season also boasted a spacious layout, featuring the stage and fashion show area off to the left of the show floor.
Special thanks to Luma Designs for providing the stunning drapery and expert uplighting on the stage! Sound Force Entertainment provided the outstanding media and sound support throughout the event, while the chairs around the fashion show stage sported classy covers with ombre pink sashes by White Table, who also provided the glam linens in the registration area and Pink Room. Peerless Films also participated throughout the day by providing professional video coverage of the event. A video showcasing some of their wedding video work played before each fashion show. Special thanks to these pros for helping make the day so fabulous!
