With this Ring…Bridal Gala set to take place

  • Sep. 14, 2016 2:31 p.m.

The annual With This Ring…Bridal Gala is set to take place in Red Deer later this month.

The event will take place on Sept. 25th at the Harvest Centre from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance or $15 at the door. Tickets are available online at www.bridalgala.ca or at The Bay, Bridal Couture Dezigns and Black Knight Tuxedos.

“People can expect to see and learn what’s new and what’s happening in the bridal world. There are a lot of exhibitors looking at trends and what is happening and they bring that to the show,” said Pat Moore, partner, producer and fashion show coordinator for With This Ring…Bridal Gala. “We will be showcasing pretty much what a bride or groom needs to find when it comes to planning, whether it be for destination weddings or local weddings and even beyond that.

“Brides and grooms, along with their family and friends come from Red Deer and all over Central Alberta. The gala provides engaged couples one location to meet wedding experts who present them with products, ideas and assistance in planning their big day and their future. Everything and more than the couples can imagine is found under one roof. Fashion shows, fabulous door prizes, grand prizes and much more make for an exciting day. The bridal show offers businesses a focused target market of those looking to meet their specific wedding needs.”

With This Ring…Bridal Gala was started in the fall of 2004 by three Red Deer entrepreneurs with extensive experience in trade shows, bridal shows, marketing and promotion. Moore, Christine Aldous and Nancy Paish saw the opportunity to carry on the Central Alberta bridal show tradition and their wedding planning extravaganza has grown in exhibitors and attendance over the last 13 years and 24 bridal shows, Moore said. “It remains Central Alberta’s largest bridal trade show.”

At the upcoming fall bridal gala, there will be 48 exhibitors showcased. Two fashion shows will also take place – one at 11:30 a.m. and the second at 2:30 p.m. Seats are limited for both shows.

Moore’s passion for the wedding industry is two-fold.

“We’re looking at local businesses and trying to help them be successful and meet their expectations in providing weddings that the brides dream of,” said Moore. “On the other side with the brides being able to find everything that they are looking for at a one-stop event.

“We encourage those planning a wedding to come because they can look at what’s new, they can look at some of the top wedding professionals and be able to book an appointment and sit down with them after. It’s nice to have that look around and to be able to walk around and see what one wedding professional does differently than the other and how that connects with their own personal taste. It gives that opportunity to brides.”
