The Pink Bride hosted its Winter 2014 Tri-Cities Pink Bridal Show on February 2nd, and the event could not have been more exciting! This season’s Pink Bridal Show Tri-Cities boasted more brides and exciting wedding planning opportunities than ever before, breaking all previous records for Pink Bridal Shows in the area. The lineup of wedding professionals just gets better and better with each season, and I’m happy to say that the Winter 2014 Tri-Cities Pink Bridal Show brought more brides together with more wedding pros than ever before! Phenomenal show-only deals, mouth-watering eats and irresistible swag lured brides and grooms to this prestigious event. The Pink Bridal Show is the ultimate wedding planning experience in the Tri-Cities area, hosted from 12pm to 4pm at the MeadowView Convention Center and offering couples the chance to plan their dream weddings all in one day. As usual, I was there with my camera to catch just a few of the highlights from the show, so check them out below.
As you may know by now, tons of work goes into making a Pink Bridal Show everything that it is. From the rigorous prep-work by Fred and Donna Jacob to the tedious (yet exciting) task the wedding pros have of prepping each booth for the hundreds of brides ready to plan their wedding right there at the show, Pink Bridal Shows are definitely a team effort! All of the wedding professionals at this season’s show worked hard to place the final touches on their booths before the doors opened at 12. Check out a few snaps I got of them hard at work!
Brides, grooms and their groups began lining up in the registration area by 11:15. The line was so huge this season that it went straight out the doors of the convention center! Due to the continuous stream of brides and their entourages, the registration area stayed totally filled up until half-way through the show. The ladies working registration didn’t catch a break until after 2pm!
Once the doors opened at 12, brides began strolling throughout the show floor to check out the vendors they still needed for their wedding. They also went into the show ready and armed with Pink Bridal Bucks to get even better deals and discounts on services for their wedding day!
Each bride was given a free copy of the latest Tri-Cities Pink Bride Magazine at registration that featured the winning photo of the latest Tri-Cities Pink Bride Cover Contest, beautifully captured by Tri-Cities wedding photography company Cable Photography!
Guests also checked out the Pink Room, now offering an adorable collection of personalized sunglasses as well as the much-loved Pink Shirt Collection, sold at special show-only prices.
Brides and grooms began gathering around the stage for the fashion show by 2:00. So many were in attendance that The Pink Bride had to request more chairs be set up around the stage! The fashion show began at 3:00 and featured the season’s hottest styles from David’s Bridal and Men’s Wearhouse. But before the models came out, The Pink Bride’s CEO Fred Jacob gave a few of the brides and grooms at the show a little gift for attending!
Fred also showed a few videos on engagements and love to the crowds that left a few teary eyes out there. Afterwards, the models started flaunting those gorgeous styles down the runway!
Performer and dance instructor BJ Goliday once again lit up the stage with his talent, joined by the models wearing lovely styles for the bride and the bridesmaids in your life! Check out the dance routine in the video below.
Immediately following the fashion show, Fred and Donna Jacob announced winners from vendor booths and drew names for the amazing cash prize giveaways. Congrats to all the winners!
Special thanks goes out to MeadowView Convention Center for being such a beautiful facility to host the event in! The Pink Bride would also like to thank Celebrate Rentals for the gorgeous décor on the stage and DJ Express for the wonderful sound! The Pink Bridal Show wouldn’t have been as fabulous without the talents of these amazing wedding professionals.
Thanks for coming to the Winter 2014 Tri-Cities Pink Bridal Show!
Be sure to mark your calendars for the next show at the MeadowView Convention Center, set for September 21, 2014!
