Premier Bridal Shows has been featured in Pasadena Weekly! Article written by Laura Latzko Pasadena Weekly Contributing Writer
Planning a wedding, reception and pre-wedding festivities can be stressful, with talks of dresses, flowers, cake, venue, music and food.
The Premier Bridal Show in Pasadena tries to ease that stress by bringing vendors together under one roof on Sunday, Aug. 14, at the Hilton Pasadena.
Event manager Lynette Jimenez said the show offers a comfortable environment for brides, grooms and vendors, where they can really have in-depth conversations.
“The type of brides that we attract, they are easy to talk to. They are willing to listen. … They are open to the wedding professionals helping them with their vision,” Jimenez said.
More than 55 vendors will be there, focused on items and services such as bridesmaid and bride dresses, tuxedos, cakes, venues, honeymoon trips, photography and videography, invitations, music, flowers, jewelry, hair, catering, dance lessons, wedding coordination, rings, and bridesmaid and groomsmen gifts.
Other peripheral services are up for discussion as well. These include teeth whitening or dental work, marriage counseling, banking and financial, health and wellness, eyelash, augmentation, body sculpting, laser treatment, IV hydration, barbershop, facial, boudoir photo, wedding registry and life insurance services.
Jimenez said the show is designed for not just brides but for the whole wedding party.
“Premier Bridal Shows tries to capture the hearts of all involved in the wedding,” Jimenez said.
The show caters to male-female as well as same-sex couples.
“Everybody is getting married, and our vendors are open and accepting of that. Everybody is treated the same, as far as their packages, their deals, the conversations,” Jimenez said.
The show provides a starting point for those who aren’t sure yet what they want, what questions to ask or who to go to for a service they need.
“They get everything all in front of them,” Jimenez said.
“They have a starting point with their local shops and wedding professionals, and they can take the ball and run from there.”
Jimenez has found many couples don’t want cookie-cutter weddings and are adding personal touches such as doughnut walls, vintage dresses or succulent or dry bouquets.
During the event, many vendors will offer samples of products or interactive activities such as spinning wheels with prizes or deals.
Some dress shops set up makeshift changing areas. Along with wedding-themed vendors, the event will have a fashion show with fresh styles, a $400 David’s Bridal raffle, giveaways and interactive games with prizes.
“It gives them extra exposure, advertising their business. They also have a booth on the showroom floor, so the DJ will make sure to mention their name several times throughout the fashion show so that it sticks into the bride’s head. If they like a dress, they know which booth to go and visit,” Jimenez said.
A longtime vendor, Jimenez ensures her visitors’ needs are met.
“They get there as early as 7 or 8 in the morning, and the fashion show is at 1. They are on their feet talking, and they probably didn’t eat anything before arriving. It’s just small little bags of chips or cookies, but they appreciate it so much,” Jimenez said.
“What better way to strike up a conversation and say, ‘How’s it going? How’s the foot traffic?’ We get a little more feedback while handing out food, and they just love it.”
Jimenez said the setting for the show is important, too. At the hotel, the vendors and wedding parties can start to build relationships.
“Once they click and vibe with the wedding professional, it makes the whole process even that much easier. I learned that as a professional working on the show floor myself. There’s nothing compared to talking to them, joking with them and introducing yourself. You just feel it. They just fall in love with you,” Jimenez said.
“With makeup, I would do a trial and wedding day. When I would go in and do the trial, I felt like we were friends already. I would meet the mom. I would meet the sister. I would meet whoever was coming to the trial, and come the wedding day, I felt like I was family. They were feeding me, giving me chocolate. The cat was sitting on my lap while I was waiting. … And the next thing you know, she’s letting me know that she’s having a baby, and she wants me to do her makeup for her baby shower, or one of the bridesmaids is now getting married. … It starts at that bridal show, and it starts with that very first conversation.”

Wedding expos, otherwise known as bridal fairs, are one of the best way for couples to meet and vet a number of different vendors in a setting that's fun, interactive, and bustling with activity. Depending on the expo you're attending, regional or national vendors will gather in one designated spot to discuss wedding packages with prospective brides and grooms. There, you'll see examples of their work and may even get to watch live demos as well as sample wedding food, cakes, and cocktails. If you're on the fence about attending one, we highly suggest it. Here, we dive into all the ways these fairs can be helpful for couples looking to get off the Internet and do in-person research.
The research is done for you.
You can rest assured that the vendors at these shows have been pre-vetted and vouched for by the expo organizer. Claudia Hanlin, who's planned bridal expos for over a decade, says that these events are one of the best time investments couples make while planning a wedding. She estimates that most of these fairs cost around $75 for a ticket and take a few hours to get through. In the process, couples can meet a variety of different vendors and venue representatives that fit a wide range of budgets, personalities, and styles.
You'll meet a lot of vendors.
Hanlin says the biggest calling card for attending a show is usually that there aren't any other occasions when you'd have all vendors from every category under one roof. This is a chance to see professionals in a less controlled environment than their studio, and you're able to see the dedication and effort they put into every detail of an event.
You'll be able to put a face to the name.
Internet and social media research may give you an idea of who you'd like to work with, but matching a personality and a team to that business is a big piece of the puzzle. Hanlin says that not only will you be able to meet the owner of a business at an expo, but you'll also get to see their team in action.
You might be able to try samples or see samples of vendors' work.
Caterers may be passing hors d'oeuvres, bakers might have cake you can sample, a photographer may have a photobooth setup, and a florist might have a centerpiece or bouquet mockup. Hanlin says, "Usually, when you're meeting with a florist, you don't really see their work live until you do your table sample, if you have that luxury, but at an expo you actually see a table they've designed or at least a centerpiece." The same goes for many other vendors, all of which tend to bring their most exciting setup to display their skills. Most expos also bring in live music acts that you can hire for your wedding, and since a lot of bands and musicians don't have showcases regularly, this can be a great opportunity to see them perform in front of a crowd.
You can often find unexpected vendors.
Hanlin says there are two categories of wedding professionals that you'll meet at an expo that you would otherwise have more trouble finding through research alone: unusual and brand-new vendors. "You might find somebody who encapsulates rose petals in ice cubes," she says, and while that may not be something you thought to seek out for your wedding, it could add a really great design element to your bar. You might also meet florists, photographers, planners, or bakers who are new to the industry and want to get their name out there. An expo offers a great opportunity to discover these newer professionals and see what they do in person.
Speakers often have helpful tips for couples.
If the expo you're attending has speakers, Hanlin says this adds great value to the event. A lot of the industry's top planners or photographers will give presentations that cover many different topics, offering tips and insider info you might not otherwise have access to.
Spending and the Number of Wedding-Related Events Soar, According to Brides American Wedding Study 2018
Spending and the Number of Wedding-Related Events Soar, According to Brides American Wedding Study 2018. The Average Cost of Weddings Is at an All-Time High of $44,105, As Personalization Continues to Rise and Couples Extend Celebrations With Emerging Event Trends Like the Wedding-Moon and an Increase in After-Parties
NEW YORK, Jan. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Today Brides, Condé Nast's iconic wedding brand and the authority on all things bridal, released findings from the 2018 American Wedding Study. The American Wedding Study is an annual survey of engaged and newlywed couples across the country, conducted by Brides, that reveals key insights into the latest wedding trends, behaviors, and spending habits for weddings in America.
"In 2018, spending is way up across categories, proving that while couples are doing things their own way, they are still prioritizing celebrating their marriage," said Lisa Gooder, executive director, Brides. "More than ever, couples are savoring the whole process, from engagement to honeymoon and beyond, by celebrating with more events, trips, and professional photos or videos to capture the moments."
The average cost of a wedding is $44,105, an all-time high, and couples invested in expanding the celebration more than ever. Also in 2018, 9 percent of couples took a wedding-moon (pre-wedding trip) together; 31 percent of couples had multiday-event wedding weekends (up from 20 percent in 2017); 39 percent of couples had a post-reception after-party (up from 20 percent in 2017); and 14 percent of brides wore a second look for their after-party (up from 7 percent in 2017).
