Whether you’re planning a traditional, boho or beach wedding, you’ll be inspired for your big day at the 18th annual Bridal Show sponsored by IND Media. It’s a day just for brides, with everything you’ll need to plan the wedding of your dreams. Discover the latest trends, meet vendors who can offer advice and set dates for venues, all at the Cajundome Convention Center Sunday, March 8, 2015.

Local vendors will be on hand to answer questions and help brides make their dream wedding a reality. Brides are invited to spend the day at the event, bring planners and schedule appointments while shopping the show floor.

Each year, the Bridal Show gets bigger and better with more creative ideas and options for attending brides. Booths represented by florists, bakers, caterers and photographers will be accessible, along with ideas for venues, travel, gifts, limos and more. See unique wedding day cake styles and taste samples, while also viewing the latest fashions in wedding gowns, accessories, tuxedos and special occasion dresses.

FASHION

Always a highlight, the exciting runway-style Fashion Show features the latest trends, colors, fabric, trim and accessories for the entire wedding party, including brides, mothers, grooms, bridesmaids and flower girls. Expect to see new styes and traditional favorites from vendors like David’s Bridal, Men’s Wearhouse, Blanc Bridal Trois and Deshotel’s Dress Shop during shows at 1, 2 and 3 p.m.

PRIZES

Vendors in beautifully decorated booths give out free gifts, samples and information packages all day long. Sign up for door prizes, with winners of drawings announced throughout the event. Don’t miss this opportunity to be treated like royalty while gathering ideas for your big day.
