There’s a huge difference between a bridal show and an extravaganza. If you’re looking for your average run-of-the-mill event with a few pretty wedding gowns and cake samples, then you would attend a bridal show. On the other hand, if you’re seeking an unforgettable two-day experience that could potentially lead to you planning your entire wedding in less than 48 hours, then you must attend an extravaganza.

Since its inception in 1983, The Bridal Extravaganza Show has continued to evolve and keep up with the latest trends so it can meet the needs of every type of wedding party.

“The overall wedding market has exploded, and part of the reason is reality television and the introduction of social media,” said Show Producer Laurette Veres. “You’ll literally find everything that you could possibly need for your dream wedding. The Bridal Extravaganza is like your Pinterest board brought to life. Our goal is to simplify the wedding process for the bride.”

The Bridal Extravaganza Show makes it possible for brides and grooms to plan their picture perfect and television-worthy wedding. And because everything is bigger and better in Texas, this extravaganza has over 400 vendors with the most food, prizes and fashion shows than any other bridal show in the country. Need a great-tasting cake to match your wedding needs? As an attendee, you have an opportunity to sample delicious wedding cakes from several vendors. Many brides get lucky and book them that exact same day.

Attendees will also have the pleasure of enjoying fashion shows that feature glamorously designed gowns for the bride and her bridesmaids. In addition, Houston’s Bridal Extravaganza will feature seminars with 12 guest speakers offering expert advice on several categories that pertain to successful wedding planning. A few of these guest speakers include photographer Deb Turner, florist Rebekah Cunningham, and DJ Lewis Grell of LG Entertainment.

Make it a fun occasion and include the people who are most important to you on your big day. You might book your venue, you might find your florist or maybe you’ll even taste that perfect wedding cake. The bottom line is that you’ll most definitely leave with a plan. It’s highly suggested that you purchase your tickets ahead of time for this anticipated event. Lines can become very long to gain access into the venue.
