The Pink Bride Wedding Show® in the Tri-Cities was the largest Tri-Cities show to date, with the most vendors ever attending in this area!
What an amazing turnout!! Setup for the vendors began in the early morning hours between 7am and 11am. Most of the brides and grooms were so anxious for the show to begin that they began lining up out the doors at 11:00! The show officially started at 12:00pm, which then led the happy couples up and down aisles of local wedding professionals who were eager to present their products and services. Not to mention, they had some incredibly stunning booths to show off! From a horse and buggy carriage, a Rolls Royce, and a party bus to the sweet sounds of a harpist, loads of catered food, and some serious wedding fashion inspo, the attendees truly got the whole action-packed experience of planning their wedding all in one place.
As wedding season is quickly approaching, we are beginning to see a clear picture of this year’s most popular wedding trends!
It is pretty evident that greenery is definitely the most popular neutral this year. We are seeing it EVERYWHERE! What I personally love about greenery is that it is affordable, and it truly goes with any wedding’s theme! As you may remember, blush was a very popular wedding color a couple of years ago, and now it is back with a special twist – metallic! Rose golds and coppers are a huge wedding trend that we are going to see throughout 2017. Whether it be rose gold wedding rings or copper accessories at your reception, these metallics are going to be seen everywhere! Our vendors did a phenomenal job at displaying these current wedding trends this past weekend at our Tri-Cities Pink Bride Wedding Show®.
The one thing that many brides instantly think about after getting engaged is their wedding dress, of course! And why wouldn’t they? That’s one of the most exciting parts that so many of us girls have grown up dreaming about!
The brides (and grooms) had the opportunity to find their dream wedding dresses and suits for their big day, as David’s Bridal and Men’s Wearhouse presented immaculate fashion designs straight off of the runways of New York City during our own Pink Bride Fashion Show. The fashion show began at 3:00pm, but first, we had to have some fun (duh!). President of The Pink Bride®, Fred Jacob, brought up three grandmother-mother-daughter trios (try saying that 10 times fast 😉 ) on stage for some Twist and Uptown Funk action! One amazing lady even got a special dance with one of the models from our fashion show. Take a look at the video below to see some of the fun for yourself … you can’t help but smile the whole time!
One of the best parts of the fashion show was the #withakiss campaign put on by David’s Bridal!
Each time someone blew a kiss – whether it be a selfie or even a model on the stage – and the hashtag, #withakiss was posted, David’s Bridal made a donation of $1.00 to breast cancer research. How special is that?! Needless to say, there were kisses being blown in every single direction – and we absolutely loved it!
After the fashion show ended, President, Fred Jacob, and Executive Vice President, Allison Jacob, drew winners for a TV, a wedding cake and Cash For Contracts.
All together, there were a total of 16 Cash For Contracts winners, meaning that the brides and grooms who were drawn for those giveaways received the opportunity for The Pink Bride® to help pay a portion of the costs toward one of their dream wedding vendors! Some of the winning couples were so excited that they would burst out a loud scream, and we absolutely loved that!! That is what the Pink Bride Wedding Show® is all about. We live for the moments when we get to see the pure excitement of this special time from brides, grooms and their families!
Following the fashion show and giveaways, engaged couples made their way back down through the vendors’ booths to make sure they didn’t miss out on any special show offers!
The majority of the time, vendors will offer a special discount of some sort for brides and grooms who attend the Pink Bride Wedding Show®. This past weekend, we tried something a little different by interviewing a few of the vendors on our Snapchat (@pinkbrideco) prior to the show to give the attendees a clue as to some of the special deals happening throughout the day’s event. Many of the brides were highly intrigued by this and got to begin The Pink Bride® experience before the official Pink Bride Wedding Show® even began!
Be sure to add us on Snapchat and Instagram to follow along with our show specials and all the behind the scenes action of the Pink Bride Wedding Show®! We also post at least one Facebook Live during the event, so LIKE us on Facebook as well to stay in touch with all things PINK!
As the show came to a close, brides, grooms and their families stopped for a quick photo op on their way out the door with none other than President and CEO of The Pink Bride®, Fred Jacob, as the photographer!
As always, we cannot say thank you enough to our wonderful vendors who put so much time and effort into presenting at the Pink Bride Wedding Show®, and we cannot explain just how much we appreciate each bride, groom, family member and friend for attending the show!
The wedding planning process is truly a special time in your life, and we hope that our show made you feel even more excitement and joy for this incredible journey of your life to begin! Cheers to the wedding of your dreams and an even more amazing future with your love by your side!
