Innovative Bridal Show Arrives in Houston
Plan a wedding in one day at the Houston Wedding Showcase
HOUSTON, TX – February 25, 2009 – The Wedding Showcase, a partnership representing bridal show producers with a combined 25 years of experience, will debut the Houston Wedding Showcase on February 28th, sponsored by WeddingWire.com. Brides-to-be will be on a mission to find the wedding professionals best suited for their wedding day at Houston’s newest bridal event.
With spectacular runway fashion shows and aisle after aisle of exhibits from the area’s most trusted wedding professionals, couples will find everything they need to make their wedding day extraordinary without the hassle of driving from place to place. The event producers have handpicked the best and highest quality services in the Houston/Harris County area to appear at the show, and have integrated the best ideas from bridal shows around the country to bring unique features to the event that have not been seen in Houston before.
“Our goal has always been to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to weddings and celebrations,” says Marc McIntosh, one of the country’s top bridal show experts and a Co-Producer of the Houston Wedding Showcase. “We take a fresh approach to every aspect of wedding planning based on the needs of today’s couples by adding new categories and laying out the show in ways that challenge a more traditional approach.”
McIntosh also participates in economic impact and trend studies in relation to the bridal industry, and frequently does presentations to industry groups about the impact of the current recession and where the industry is going. He is available to talk to the Houston media this week to address these trends and provide outlines of the most current research with regard to spending patterns, and the role of the internet in revolutionizing wedding planning.
“Our partnership with WeddingWire is one of the innovations we bring to this show and numerous other bridal shows across the country,” says McIntosh. “WeddingWire is truly the best online resource available to brides today.”
