Planning a wedding involves much more than finding the poofiest-sleeved bridesmaid dresses and selecting the appropriate band to play “Stairway to Heaven” for the first dance. Find nuptial guidance with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets to the Wedding Exhibit Bridal Show on August 7 from noon to 5 p.m. at the Prime Osborn Convention Center (a $20 value).
The Wedding Exhibit Bridal Show hosts more than 100 vendors at the Prime Osborn Convention Center for its betrothal bonanza, where brides-to-be can interview prospective service providers to ensure smooth sailing at all stages of their big day. Find out how to plan a wedding and avoid accidentally planning a funeral with wedding consultants Alpha and Omega, or test the tenacity of petal arrangements by visiting florists such as Bold Blooms and then throwing a sample bouquet into the crowd to note response times. Photographers such as Couture Wedding Studios will be on hand to display shutterbug prowess, and agents from Travel Experience will help newlyweds plan their honeymoon trip to Gettysburg. Brides can take in the coming attractions at the fashion show while their partners relax in the Groom’s Room or investigate the hottest new cummerbunds.
The Wedding Exhibit Bridal Show
During an afternoon expo filled with romantic anticipation, engaged couples mingle with experts specializing in nuptial necessities such as invitations, photography, and transportation. A fashion show highlights the latest trends in dresses and tuxedos, and dozens of vendors man their booths throughout the show, featuring everything from flowers and cake samples to bouquet-launching trebuchets. Attendees receive discounts on select wares and services, and several lucky brides or grooms head home armed with free giveaways.
