Bettie and her fiancé, William, met through mutual friends over two years ago. She said she was ecstatic when he proposed to her roughly six months ago.
“I never believed in love at first sight, until I met William,” Bettie said. “They really don’t make men like him anymore, and I found the perfect catch.”
After the initial excitement died down, Bettie was stuck with the ultimate project ahead of her. How to plan the wedding of her dreams…while sticking with a budget. Luckily, the Bridal Show on Sunday offered a one-stop shop for all wedding needs.
Dozens of vendors were lined in rows inside the Poppy Pavilion. They offered a variety of products and services, including cakes, venues, music, limousines, catering, florists, event planning, health, beauty, formal wear, invitations, jewelry, photography, and more.
Bettie is planning a small, intimate wedding for Sept. 14.
The bride-to-be gathered numerous flyers, handouts, and information packets from the vendors to further her wedding plans.
Not all attendees at the Bridal Show were planning a wedding. Some were looking around for friends and others were there just for the fun of it.
“There is so much to look at here,” said Palmdale resident, Kristina H. “I come every year, and it is fun to see everything change and more booths being added.”
A fashion show took place at around 3:15 p.m., followed by a tuxedo and wedding gown giveaway.
“I am so thankful that I found out about the AV Bridal Show,” said Bettie. “Now I can stop stressing so much about everything that needs to be done, and enjoy some time with the love of my life.”
