Bridal 2011 Show at the TRAC a big success for local vendors
PASCO, Wash- Almost 1,000 people showed up at the TRAC for Brides 2011 Sunday, the 10th annual bridal show. 400 brides registered for the event.
Terry Marie Fleischman of IMBUE LLC put on the elegant event for brides-to-be. More than 70 local vendors were there from DJ's, venues, photographers, florists, dress stores, caterers, and tuxedo rentals.
The event also had two fashion shows featuring local models. Fleischman says this event is very important for vendors since average weddings run about $30,000."It's an opportunity for them to advertise in a very short time frame. many of them book their entire season through this event for the entire year of 2011," says Fleischman.
She says the event began small with maybe 100 brides showing up, but now they have a 90% of the vendors returning every year, even though booths cost from $500-$650.
