“A wedding is a celebration that will never change,” Lana Rosalee, publisher/producer, said. “The Signature Bridal Show has something for everyone, no matter how small, large or unusual. It’s our commitment to make your wedding day memorable for all the right reasons!”

This will be the largest gathering of wedding professionals in the area. Brides will be able to take advantage of the vendor’s expertise, creativity and style, and get started on designing their dream wedding according to their specific needs and budget.

All of the vendors will be offering their services and will help create what the bride is seeking for her customized day.

“It’s become trendy for grooms to come along with their bride-to-be,” Rosalee said. “Grooms are much more involved now than in years past. They show interest in seeing options for their attire, choosing the music for the reception and tasting cakes and cuisine from caterers. It can be fun as the bride and groom view their options on ideas and style, and be able to make intelligent choices while making their plans.”
