Brides-to-be planned for their special day at the 2016 Bridal Show held on January 10. Everything needed to plan a wedding was under one roof at West Tennessee’s annual premier bridal show held at the Carl Perkins Civic Center. This year’s theme was “Rings of Love,” and the event drew vendors from all over the Mid-South to showcase wedding products and services in multiple categories. Caterers, bridal venues, travel agencies, beauty consultants and jewelers were among the plentiful resources.
The highly anticipated fashion show was the highlight of the event for many. The latest bridal gowns, tuxedos and bridesmaids’ dresses were modeled as well as make-up and hairstyle trends. Jenna King and Lauren Hamilton of My Best Friend Jenna coordinated the fashion show. Dawn Garofalo and her staff of Bravo Salon styled hair for fashion models for the perfect wedding day look.
For the grooms to-be-to who found football more thrilling than fashion, a groom’s room was available.
Froggy 104 and the Jackson Sun sponsored the Bridal Show.
