The Bridal Extravaganza really helped me narrow down my choices in vendors. I selected my florist and my linen company after meeting them at the expo. It’s a really good place to meet several vendors all in one day, which makes it a lot easier to make decisions.

I attended the Bridal Extravaganza Show in January 2016. I was just recently got engaged, and I had a little while to go, but I’m so glad I started early! You don’t realize how much you have to do before your wedding date and the show allows you to see all the best vendors out there. At some point throughout the wedding process, I needed to quickly find a vendor to create and print my menu cards. I remembered all the business cards I received, and picked a vendor from one I had visited at the show. I definitely recommend the Bridal Extravaganza Show to all Brides-to-be!

I attended the Extravaganza with my mother shortly after getting engaged. I had already decided to do the planning myself, but [my advice is to] hire a Day-of coordinator (Audrey Hu-Gonzalez, who
is fantastic). Attending the show helped me realize just how much detail I had to think about and got me started on the right track with venues and the quality of service I was looking for.

I actually attended the Bridal Extravaganza Show twice. The first time, I was in over my head on planning, and a second time, I was almost finished planning. It helped me recognize what I wanted for our wedding and what we didn’t want.

We arrived knowing very little about weddings. We were a bit overwhelmed by how many brides, bridesmaids, mother-of the-brides, and grooms attended for the purpose of finding that extra “perfect touch” for their already well planned weddings, while we did not even know where to begin our search. However, as we began walking down the aisles one by one, we found exactly what we needed from vendors that suited our needs
and tastes. Within a few hours, we had picked our invitations company/consultant (Vivian Jade) and found our musicians (Divisi Strings). From there, our planning became much easier, and everything fell into place!

I did attend the Extravaganza and was able to find my photographer, videographer, invitation designer and cake designer. It was definitely a one-stop shop! The event can definitely be overwhelming, but if you go in with the mindset that you know exactly what you are looking for it definitely helps.

I highly recommend every bride attend the Bridal Extravaganza. Being new to Houston, I didn’t exactly know where to start. The Bridal Extravaganza was a great way to shop for all of your vendors, get some great ideas, and even find some discounts! We actually got discounts on our groomsmen’s tuxes by using a coupon we had received from attending. There was also tons of information and even drawings for honeymoon packages. The experience was extremely helpful in the planning process, but it was also a lot of fun. What girl doesn’t enjoy walking around with her friends looking at tons of wedding booths? It was like a real life Pinterest board.

I had attended the bridal show twice before for a friend’s wedding. I went with my mom and mother-in-law after I was engaged. It was very helpful and I was able to meet a lot of the vendors I ended up choosing— including my photographer Scott Kelley.
