Southern Bridal Show gathers vendors at Charleston Area Convention Center

A wedding cake by Abbie's Bakery on display at last year's Southern Bridal Show.

Billed as the "South's elite bridal event since 1990," the Southern Bridal Show offers brides-to-be the chance to meet face to face with wedding professionals, bringing a variety of vendors all under one roof. Aiming to have everything a bride and groom could possibly need for their big day in one location, attendees will be able to check out photographer's pictures, taste cakes and food samples from caterers, listen to DJs spin, and see flowers, gowns and tuxedos. The event will also include a bridal fashion show production at 4 p.m. complete with professional models, dancers, recording artists and live entertainment. Brides that register for the event will receive a free one-year subscription to Brides magazine and will be eligible to win an all-inclusive honeymoon.
