Bridal show dresses up downtown
Brides will have the opportunity this weekend to preview the latest wedding trends and connect with industry professionals for every step of the wedding-planning process — all under one roof.
The 44th annual Grand Rapids Bridal Show comes to DeVos Place on Friday, from 5-9 p.m., and Saturday, from 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
The show bills itself as the largest and longest-running bridal show in West Michigan and said more than 100 vendors will be on hand during the two-day event.
Attendees can find their photographer, DJ, videographer, limo driver, honeymoon destination and more.
There will also be food samples and a bridal fashion show during the weekend.
Keeping it fun, more than $7,000 worth of prizes will be awarded during the event.
Grand Rapids Bridal Show offers a handful of tips on its website to help brides prepare for the weekend: pre-register at GRBridalShow.com, bring a notebook and pen with you and invite your fiancé, bridal party and parents.
Tickets are $5 at the door.
Brides can go online to register for a free ticket and for additional information about the show.
