ENID, Okla. — The 10th annual Weddings With Elegance Bridal Show is coming up Sunday, Jan. 26, from 1- 4 p.m. at the Stride Bank Center, 301 S. Independence.
With more than 30 vendors scheduled to show, attendees can browse dresses, sample cakes, smell the flowers and generally peruse all the trappings needed to make a wedding day complete.
The bridal show is a collaboration between Enid Floral, The Bridal Shop and Eagle Marketing. All three have sponsored and promoted the event since the first show a decade ago.
"Our partners felt like, locally, Enid has all have runway fashions, talented florists and cake decorators just as comparable to the city," Eagle Marketing event coordinator Cathy Nulph said.
"We also want our show to feel more like a reception than a trade show," she said, and they strive for a "fun, party atmosphere."
Mead Jewelry is a new partner this year, the special VIB (Very Important Bride) sponsor.
Tickets are $12 dollars, and can be picked up at Enid Floral, The Bridal Shop and the Enid News & Eagle. Attendees will receive a complementary "bridal bag," filled with different items from sponsors and vendors.
VIB tickets are available for $20 at all the same locations. VIB status comes with a number of perks, from early 12:30 p.m. entry to the event, better seating for the 3:30 fashion show, and an extra complementary bridal bag containing, among other things, a pearl bracelet from Mead Jewelry.
