Did you know that wedding cakes have been a part of wedding receptions since Roman times? The cake is a symbol of good luck and fertility. One of the best reasons for attending a bridal show is to taste the wedding cakes. How else will you make an informed decision? Not only is it important what it looks like, but you certainly want it to taste great!
Cakes can also come in many sizes from a traditional layered cake to individual cakes for each guest or even cupcakes!

So where are you at in your wedding planning schedule? If you are just getting started and you have 12 months or more to go, right now you should be concentrating on choosing the date, selecting the number of guests you will have and planning a budget. Next you should determine your ceremony and reception location. A great place to start would be by attending our bridal show in January, however, if that is too far away visit our web site and click on Wedding Services where you will find many reception locations along with links to their sites.

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to attend the Spring Bridal and Formal Market at The Venetian with Isha from Tres Jolie Bridal. This is the market where bridal and tuxedo retailers attend to purchase the latest in bridal, formalwear, and prom apparel. I can't wait for you to see the new spring collections at our next bridal show in January. They are fabulous! One of the highlights of attending Market was seeing the Desert Rose Awards given out. The Desert Rose Awards were created to recognize excellence in a company's efforts and products, and importantly to honor leadership and dedication. In the bridal gown category, winners were P. C. Mary's Bridal, Allure, and Maggie Sottero. The winner in the Headpiece category was Bel Aire. In Bridesmaids and Flower girl dresses the winner was Jordan. In Prom dresses the winner was Tiffany. The winner for Mother of the Bride was Montage by Mon Cheri. Many of these fabulous fashions will be shown in our fashion show at our next event. So don't miss it! The fashion show is always one of the favorite parts of attending a bridal show.

Thanks to the comment of a visitor to this blog, I am reminded that there are so many other categories represented at our events. We hope to cover all the categories with photos and tips for the brides over the next several months. As the visitor mentions, disc jockies are there! What a great way to find the perfect entertainment company for your wedding. You will be able to meet your prospective dj in person, interview them about their music selections and their experience as an emcee at a wedding. You may not realize that the dj or emcee at your wedding can control the flow of events from your grand entrance at the reception to the cutting of the cake. So take time to visit with them at the show and determine if their style both musically and in formalities matches what you expect at your event. Our recent event featured the following DJ companies. Dream Entertainment, Good Vibrations Mobile DJ's, Knight Sounds Entertainment, All Night Long, A-1 DJ Entertainment, Mason's Mobile DJ and Pure Energy Productions. You can find links to all of these companies from our wedding services page
