Here Comes the Bride
More than 18,000 people, 5,933 of whom were brides planning their weddings, attended the two-day Bridal Extravaganza Show at the George R. Brown Convention Center last month. Taking up a space as large as five football fields, this giant show featured amazing displays of cakes, gowns, flowers, invitations, limos and virtually everything else needed to plan a dream wedding.
One of the most popular attractions was the Couture Collection, a special section of vendors who offer custom items. Many of the designer’s creations were highlighted in VIP fashion shows on the Couture Stage. Featured gowns were from: Winnie Couture, Ora’s Exclusive, Miguel Rodriguez and Princess Bridal. Other custom vendors included: J Roe Photography, Who Made The Cake?, Elegant Bridal Bouquet, The Perfect Touch Linens, Courtyard on St. James, The Perfect Face, Designer Destination Weddings, Distinctive Details, Rockefeller Hall and the Hilton Houston Westchase.
A total of nine fashion shows took place on the main stage during the two-day event. Each show pulled in about 1,200 spectators to view fashions by: David’s Bridal, Alfred Angelo and Al’s Formal Wear, MW Tux and Ventura’s Bridal.
