Upcoming Bridal Shows

January kicks off Bridal Show season. Bridal shows offer a great opportunity to see new trends, shop and compare vendors, and take advantage of special deals and offers.

If there is a wedding in your future, you might want to take in some of these shows. Of particular interest for those seeking local resources will be the Washington Bridal Extravaganza in Washington, Missouri; My Dream Bridal Show in O’Fallon, Missouri; and the St. Louis’ Best Bridal Show in St. Charles, Mo.  And of course, the “Wine Country Weddings” tab at www.boonecountryconnection.com lists service providers and venues in our local area. Happy planning!
