A Wedding Expo is pleased to present two completely different fashion shows offering you the opportunity to see the debut of both bridal gowns and men's' formal wear for the new year.


Groom Toss
Ready... Set... Go!!
Gentlemen this is your chance to prove to your brides just how much you care, without looking bad in front of the guys. So it’s off to the races we go.The Groom Toss is a challenge for three couples, you will start on one end of the fashion show runway, and race your way to the other end and through the door to a fabulous prize. The only catch is… you will be racing with the bride-to-be on your back. It may not exactly be “crossing the threshold”, but then again there was never a sponsor's prize on the other side of the threshold either. So lace up your shoes.. grab your girl...and get ready to run!

Cake Expectations
Every engagement for a girl usually starts with the ring, so ladies have we got a deal for you.
In the Cake Expectations challenge three very lucky ladies will get the chance to dig their way through a wedding cake in search of a fake ring. Now… we wouldn’t let you dig through all that messy cake for just any ol’ fake diamond ring, the bride-to-be successful at finding the ring first can start counting her lucky stars or karats perhaps instead.
So ladies… roll up your sleeves, tie your hair back, and get ready to dig in!

There is over $20,000 in prizes this year, and you won't want to miss out! Imagine gave out emergency bridal kits in the fall at The Most Incredible Bridal Show, and it was such a hit, that they've decided to do it again! The first 50 brides to visit my booth will get a FREE emergency bridal kit! See you there!

Winter Wonderland Weddings

Everyone dreams or having that wonderful wedding in the summer, but what about a fabulous winter or Christmas themed wedding. For those of use who love the holidays, the Christmas season is a fabulous time to have your wedding!

When it comes to attire, winter is cold. Most dresses are strapless or have very little in the way of sleeves, and they can look old-fashioned. Opt for a dress that comes with a shrug, or buy a dramatic coat! White fur is always a nice choice for a winter wedding, especially if you plan on taking photo's outside.What about your bridesmaids? Make sure to outfit them in an attractive wrap too!

As far as your venue is concerned I would suggest something warm and romantic! Consider a fireplace, or large picture windows that look out onto a snowy picturesque landscape. When it comes to decor there are many options. The two most popular are the Christmas theme, where you may have poinsettia centerpieces, with green and red as your main colors. And the other is the silver and blue theme, leaning more towards the winter than Christmas theme. Both can have pizazz and sparkle! Stock up on Christmas lights the year before, as you can use lights in either theme to really wrap up the feeling your trying to convey.

To add in special touches that really bring your theme across choose favors that reflect the season such as, hot chocolate, Christmas cookie cutters, or perhaps even mini-snow globes for each guest. Guests will also love a themed edible treats such as eggnog, hot cocoa, and sugar cookies!

Other idea's to wow your guests:
- arrive in a carriage pulled by horses.
- ice sculptures
- sparkle, sparkle, sparkle!
