There’s the romantic high of the proposal, the shiny new accessory for the left hand, the thrill of sharing the news with friends and families…but after that first, all-important question there are about 500,000 others that follow in short order.Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Bridal Show offers help and some fun to engaged couples. It was a don’t want event with more than 200 vendor booths ready to help brides plan their wedding. In addition there were contests, DIY workshops, giveaways, fashion shows, entertainment and live music. A man cave kept the lucky newly engaged men out of trouble while their future brides checked out venues, bakeries, photographers, caterers, florists and more.
The Empress made an impressive appearance at the Bridal Show on January 18, showing brides what a Downton Abbey wedding looks like in Little Rock. The highlight of the booth was the Victorian-Lace wedding gown that graces our 2nd floor hallway, but brides also fell in love with the elaborate rugs, the lace tablecloths, the crystal candelabra and the stunning pictures. We met so many beautiful brides and we hope to see many of them at The Empress planning their dream wedding day Downton Abbey style!
