The Record Breaking Show!


Sunday January 31st, 2016 we had one AMAZING show at the Newport News Marriott!!! We broke a record for the number of brides in attendance!! Are you ready for this??? 549!!! Yes, that’s right, we had over 500 brides come out. This count does not include their family and friends they brought with them. I know all of our participating vendors met lots of potential brides and I know the brides got to meet some awesome vendors who would love to help them make their big day a day they won’t forget!

With our March show right around the corner, NOW is the time to sign up! We are hoping this show will be as big as the last! Don’t miss your opportunity to meet all the wonderful brides who attend our shows. The March show is Sunday March 6 at the Chesapeake Marriott from 2-5pm. Contact a Show Bride rep to secure your spot.

Below is our “History of Bridal Shows” that has the count of brides in attendance for all of our past shows!
