Imagine if you could actually touch the dresses in Brides magazine, feel their luxurious quality and see the craftmanship and care that had gone into the hand-sewn detailing. What if you could sample that incredibly creative cake to be sure it tastes as good as it looks? Smell that blossomy bridal bouquet and see for yourself how that glimmering statement necklace would look on you?

That is precisely the kind of experience we can now deliver to you with Brides: The Show where every element of your wedding planning will come to life before you in a way no other wedding show has ever been able to offer.
