This year’s Bride’s Night Out was definitely an event to remember. When it comes to wedding planning, you want the best people on the job, so we connected you to local vendors who care. We loved hosting this event and seeing all of our brides and grooms having a crazy, fun time planning their perfect wedding. We couldn’t have made this event happen with out our vendors, sponsors, and our soon-to-be-married couples. We adore working with all of you and cannot wait to hang out with all of you again for next year’s Bride’s Night Out!
We loved this event so much. The relaxed vibes helped everyone unwind and enjoy each other, and we couldn’t have accomplished any of it without these vendors and sponsors:
What are some things you should keep in mind when attending a wedding show?
Leave plenty of time to browse. In just a few hours, you have the opportunity to observe, gain insight, and establish relationships with the local experts that are going to be playing a huge part in such a memorable day. Don’t rush it! Take the time to visit each of the booths, stick around for possible prize giveaways, and save time by scheduling appointments at the show.
Wear comfortable shoes and carry a big bag with handles. There’s so much to see and grab so you’ll be doing a lot of walking and collecting. Pick up business cards and promotional offers and take photos with your phone for future reference and inspiration.
Bring pre-printed labels or a stamp with your name, wedding date, email address, and mailing address on it. This is a great way to save time filling out door prize entry forms and to quickly give your favorite vendors your pertinent information.
Bring a checkbook or credit card so you can take advantage of “show only” specials and to guarantee availability with your chosen experts. Remember, most businesses can only accommodate one or two weddings on a prime Saturday. You’ll want to make sure you are able to solidify your wedding date with your businesses of choice.
Bring a friend. You’ll find that it’s more fun if you share the experience. Grab a cocktail, enjoy lunch together, and take some fun pics while you’re enjoying the afternoon! Photos: Kevin’s Photography

Enjoy some images from the last Diamond Dash Event !
It was just yesterday that we were thinking that it would be nice to feature guests on our blog from time to time. The same day (amazingly) Marketing Manager of Suits Unlimited Ashley Kerns wrote us about an article she put together for brides to be more prepared and feel “less overloaded” when it comes to bridal shows and wedding planning in general . It is a must read as she makes a lot of really good points- and we all know how chaotic bridal shows can be if you do not go in prepared. Thank you for your insight Ashley!
Brides, you will have the chance to meet with vendors, schedule appointments, receive a savings package (program), free copy of our guide, be entered in a drawing to participate in the diamond dash and win several door prize giveaways as well as enjoy an ongoing fashion show.
At our Bridal Show you will also have the chance to meet one on one with the Embassy Suites and visit their special VIP room where you can learn about what they can provide for your wedding – tasting of some of their menu items, located in the Agave Meeting Room, schedule an appointment while you’re there.
