The 3rd Annual BlackBride.Com Bridal Show Thank You! – Blackbride.com

It’s hard to believe it’s been a week ago today, since the 3rd Annual BlackBride.com Bridal Show.  After much needed time off last week to rest and reflect on the show, we are ready to analyze the data we've gathered so far, and more that will come in weeks from now. The data helps us to improve the show each year.  For an example based on feedback from last year’s show, we added plus size fashions to the fashion segment this year. It was well received and we've decided going forward it will be a permanent addition to the show.  We also added blue hues throughout the ballroom this year, so you'll see blue stilettos under gorgeous gowns, blue jewelry, our something blue lounge, shades of blue tablescapes, a blue themed candy buffet for brides to enjoy blue sweet treats and so much more!

Although it’s the end for now, it’s only the “Third” chapter of a great event for brides-to-be. Stay tuned as we continue to provide brides with tangible resources online, and at our bridal shows to assist them in planning one of the most important days of her life.

We couldn't have done it without you…
