For some of you, you might be getting ready to attend your first bridal show. Even if it’s not your first, maybe you’d like to be a little more prepared now that you know what to expect. In light of that, we want to answer some questions you might have about preparing for the bridal show.
Can buy tickets to the show ahead of time?
Yes, and we actually encourage that! It will save you time at the door. You can buy your tickets ahead of time online here.
Who can I bring to the show?
Anyone you’d like! If you want to round up a group of your closest friends or cousins, do it! If you want your groom to be with you throughout the planning process – and you can tear him away from the TV – then you’re more than welcome to bring him, too. We do, however, encourage you to think twice about bringing small children; they will tire quickly. If you do bring kids along, note that children 10 and under get into our shows free!

No matter how nice your tuxedo looks on the hanger, you should also choose your formalwear for style and comfort. After all, you’ll be wearing your tux for anywhere from four to eight fun-filled hours, so above all else, you’ll want to make sure you feel comfortable and are able to move easily.
Here are our tips for getting the most out of your formalwear look:
Today, being a stylish groom goes beyond the suit or tux itself; it has a lot to do with what’s worn underneath the jacket. Yes, the key to pulling your look together is really all about the choice of ties, vests, cufflinks and even cummerbunds. (Hey, if Justin Timberlake is wearing one, maybe you should be, too!)
For a long time, men were choosing the black suit with a small collar and skinny black tie. As that look becomes more tired and more couples are choosing classic wedding themes, the popularity of tuxes continues to grow.
Tuxedo style is dictated largely by the jacket. Everything else – whether trousers, shirt collars, cuffs or accessories – serves as a complement to the look and can set you apart from similarly dressed groomsmen. Since most couples choose a style or theme for their wedding, it’s important to choose the type of tuxedo that coordinates with the overall theme.
When shopping for your wedding dress, one of the first things you should do is consider any style preferences you might have. When selecting your gown style, you’ll want to weigh all the options for the silhouette, sleeves, neckline, bodice and train. In order to help you with your decision, we’ve come up with the following guide – which breaks down the basic terminology of popular wedding gown styles.
The first place to start is at the top. Veils are very commonplace, but vary in styles from ultra formal blushers (veils that cover your face and are lifted at a certain point in the service) to classic lace mantillas.
Not surprisingly, veils also range in length. Although there are no set-in-stone rules, certain veils do seem to match certain gowns. A very formal wedding gown – say with a chapel or cathedral length train – will best be set off by a full-length veil, usually extending one foot past the train.
