Unveiled Bridal Show, Fall 2016

The bride emporium, the wedding marketplace, wedding stuff galore, whatever you call it, Unveiled Bridal Show is one of a kind! Unveiled Bridal Show takes place twice a year for one day only and the last show of 2016's was just a few weeks ago. Produced by The Wedding Guys, the show ties in all things wedding to one giant marketplace for brides and grooms to learn more about the wedding planning process. Whether its sampling cake, smelling flowers, testing chairs, or drooling over dresses (or tuxes), there is something for everyone. 

If you weren't able to make it no hard feelings, we can't show you the whole show but we can show you what Après was doing! I do suggest placing a hold on Feburary 5th, 2017 for the next Unveiled Bridal Show so you won't miss a thing!
