Brides can find everything they need for their dream wedding at The Tulsa Wedding Show at the Glenpool Conference Center.
The Tulsa Wedding Show announces their newest wedding show for Tulsa brides. This smaller, more intimate show will be at the new Glenpool Conference Center, south of Tulsa Hills Shopping Center on Highway 75, on Sunday, April 29, 2012 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Although The Tulsa Wedding Show produces a January wedding show with attendance of about 2,500 people, and a summer show, which has about 1,400 attendees, Vicki Taylor, producer, believes a spring show is needed also. With constant changes in wedding fashions, Vicki believes that her upcoming spring wedding show will be just what newly engaged brides are looking for – and she is shaking up her traditional wedding shows with the Glenpool event.
The original Tulsa Wedding Show was designed to meet the needs of women who had a wedding to plan with little time to plan it. In 1993, there was a need to make life a little easier for Tulsa brides-to-be by bringing wedding merchants together in one place and creating an easy come-and-go shopping experience just for brides and their family and friends. Although some things have changed, planning a wedding remains a hectic task. Brides still find themselves exhausted from calling, missing calls, making appointments, driving around town, trying to round up family and friends, and coordinating schedules to meet here and then go there – and that pace can last for months.
At all Tulsa Wedding Show events, though, brides can relax and take care of everything in a few hours. The Tulsa Wedding Show in Glenpool will showcase a variety of wedding professionals, including reception facilities, photographers, caterers, photo booths, videographers, florists and venues. Best of all, they have a variety of price ranges so that there are choices for everyone. No matter the type or style of wedding each couple desires, from formal to informal and large to small budgets, brides will enjoy many options available in one place. All of the exhibitors are highly accommodating with agreements and down payments. Most merchants offer show-only specials, so brides should ask lots of questions.
The latest trend in wedding planning is vintage weddings. There will be several vintage wedding specialists at the show, so talk to them to see if “vintage” is right for you.
Exhibitors will have QR codes at their spaces to allow brides to scan information. Busy brides can quickly scan info about the exhibitor and use the saved time talking to the exhibitor.
At the Glenpool event, brides will not have to wait for fashion shows. Attendees can view the latest bridal fashions with elegant displays in the glass-enclosed foyer. Unlike traditional fashion shows that some brides miss because of the crowds, this one will last the entire day.
Beginning at 1 p.m., and then on the hour, brides will have a chance to win a collection of exhibitor products, but you must be present to win. Prizes will also be announced by text message to the bride’s phone.
You may purchase tickets online at www.thetulsaweddingshow.com for $8 before the show and $10 if purchased at the door.
“There are several great wedding venues that could host our wedding show,” said Vicki, “but the Glenpool Conference Center addresses several things that we like.” First is location. It is located on Highway 75 at 121st Street South, so it has great accessibility. And, the center is easy to locate after exiting the highway. The Glenpool Conference Center has several hundred free parking spaces and an ultra-modern facility.
Vicki encourages attendees to come to the show with an open mind. “This is your wedding and there will be plenty of new ideas that every couple can add to their plans to truly make it a unique event,” she says. “Some of the most talented and creative designers, florists, cake artists, wedding planners, gown designers, decorators, and accessory designers participate in the show. Expect to see lots of new, exciting and beautiful elements to make all the events surrounding your wedding as special as the two of you!”
