The Bridal Soiree, hosted by Allie & Belle Event Resources, is a one-day expo that helps brides plan their weddings by introducing them to wedding experts and products. Walking models allow up-close views of bridal gowns, and interactive beauty bars feature hair stylists and makeup artists glamming women up for a quick turn in the onsite photo booth. Brides can also taste cake, appetizers, and mimosas, as well as listen to live bands playing their best wedding soundtracks or covers of the Jaws theme song. Those who don't even know where to begin the planning process can attend discussion sessions with event planners, which take place twice during the day.
