The 2012 Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Bridal Show’s vendors for the January show put dresses, invitations, and other wedding accouterments on display for future-weds and bridal enthusiasts to view, culminating in a gown-and-tuxedo catwalk strut. Guests peruse floral booths as they consider nuptial décor, learn about renting a horse-drawn carriage to spirit them into wedded bliss, and grill photographers to see whether they know how to operate a camera or just plan to chronicle the wedding in stick-figure drawings. The schedule makes room for musical interludes from the Big John Miller Band. The day culminates in a runway show at 4:30 p.m., with stores from central Arkansas showcasing looks for brides, grooms, and ambitious office employees.
