You’ve got a sparkly new ring on your finger and a huge smile on your face, but now what? Now that your dream is finally coming true, there are more details to take care of than you ever thought about. If you’re feeling just a wee bit overwhelmed at the prospect of planning a beautiful wedding, the Gateway Bridal Show can help.
One of the biggest wedding shows around, the Gateway Bridal Show will give you and your fiance tons of ideas for planning your special day. There you’ll be able to sample food and cake, see the latest in table decorations, explore flower choices and so much more. The fashion show will give you a glimpse into the current trends in gowns, bridesmaid dresses, mother of the brides dresses and even flower girl dresses. It’s so helpful to see the dresses being worn, rather than just hanging on a rack in a boutique because you can see how the garments move when you walk, note the colors that go best with different skin tones and hair shades and get a feel for how the dress would fit you. Brides can experiment with hair and makeup through the various beauty services and couples can see actual photographs and video presentations that will help you choose the right person to artistically document your big day.
In addition to all the usual planning that come to mind, the Gateway Bridal Show will make you aware of even more choices such as ice sculpture or glass etching. By the time you leave, you will be able to envision the smallest details coming together to make a gorgeous celebration of your love.
The Gateway Bridal Show takes place at the Gateway Center in Collinsville, Illinois, just about a half hour from downtown St. Louis or 40 minutes from north St. Louis County. Many vendors who serve both Illinois and St. Louis will be on hand, to share their experience and advice with you. Unlike some other wedding shows, the Gateway Bridal Show treats brides like the princesses that they are, by giving them free admission. Furthermore, brides who pre-register online can receive one free guest pass and also be eligible to win attendance prizes. However, to win prizes, you must have your registration confirmation with you. While you’re on the website registering, be sure to enter the Aloha Honeymoon Contest as well!
Mark you calendar for Thursday, January 27th from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. and start your wedding planning with experts who know how to help you get the wedding day of your dreams. And, if you’re one of the first 400 brides to arrive, you’ll go home with a swag bag full of goodies too!
